“The Banished have defeated UNSC forces and taken control of the mysterious Zeta Halo, threatening the survival of humankind,” the video’s description reads.
“When all hope is lost and humanity’s fate hangs in the balance, the Master Chief returns to confront the most ruthless foe he’s ever faced.
“Here’s a fresh look at the Halo Infinite campaign that introduces players to true Spartan freedom in the biggest, most wide open and adventure-filled Halo experience yet, launching on December 8 2021.”
Developed by 343 Industries, Halo Infinite was originally planned as an Xbox Series X/S launch title in 2020 but was delayed due to quality concerns, and will now be released for consoles and PC on December 8.
Halo Infinite’s campaign will be released alongside the game’s free-to-play multiplayer component.
While the campaign and multiplayer will be released this holiday, the game won’t be launching as the complete package previously expected. In August, 343 Industries confirmed it had delayed two Halo Infinite launch modes to next year in order to make the game’s 2021 release.
Head of creative Joseph Staten revealed in a development update that 343 is now planning to release campaign co-op in Infinite’s second post-launch season, which will start around three months after launch, and Forge in Season 3, which is planned for around six months after launch.
Staten also confirmed that split-screen multiplayer will be held back on PC until post launch due to technical challenges.
