Halo Infinite‘s second season of online multiplayer content launches today.
The game’s official Twitter account posted up a world map showing what time Season 2 will launch in each region.
The second season, which is named Lone Wolves, will roll out on May 3 at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT / 7pm BST.
Lone Wolves adds two new maps called Catalyst and Breaker, and will also add new game modes.
King of the Hill and Land Grab are returning from previous Halo games, while a new mode called Last Spartan Standing is a 12-player deathmatch where each player has five lives. Players who earn kills can level up their loadout, encouraging active participation rather than hiding.
Season 2 was originally expected to launch in early 2022 before Season 1 was extended.
Community director Brian Jarrard posted a reply to a Reddit user who said they wished the studio would acknowledge that there are issues impacting progress on new features for the game, such as the delayed Forge mode and campaign co-op.
“There are indeed a lot of challenges and constraints,” Jarrard said. “We’re certainly not happy to be unable to meet player and community expectations, it’s a difficult situation that’s going to take the team time to work through.”
In its latest development progress update, 343 revealed that it’s targeting “late August” for Halo Infinite’s long-awaited online co-op mode. However, split-screen won’t arrive until Season 3 in November at the earliest, according to its roadmap.
In addition, 343 plans to introduce the ability to replay campaign missions in late August, it said, and the open beta for Forge is scheduled to kick off in September.
Microsoft recently announced that prolific support studio Certain Affinity has taken on additional Halo Infinite development duties.
