Microsoft and developer 343 Industries revealed the first campaign gameplay for Halo Infinite today during the Xbox Games Showcase.
Halo Infinite will launch this holiday alongside the Xbox Series X and will also be available on Xbox One and PC. This will be the biggest Halo game yet with the campaign being bigger than both Halo 4 and Halo 5 combined. It will also be the last Halo game for some time as the developer plans to expand on Halo Infinite well into the future.

The Most Expansive Halo
The demo we shared today begins several hours into the Halo Infinite campaign. The Master Chief and the Pilot are shot down by anti-aircraft guns and crash land on the ring, where Chief sets out to disable the AA guns so they can continue their mission. Throughout the demo, you see a variety of the weapons and equipment Chief has at his disposal, from his trusty MA40 assault rifle to the new high-precision VK78 Commando and the devastating Ravager plasma weapon. Also new to Halo is the Grappleshot, which lets Chief close the distance to enemies at will, pull objects directly to him, and move around the map like never before.
The demo also reintroduces an enemy faction (first appearing in Halo Wars 2)–the Banished. Comprised of a variety of new and familiar enemies, including the fan-favorite Brutes, this group is led by the ominous War Chief Escharum, who will one of the most formidable foes the Master Chief has ever faced.
Halo Infinite is the most ambitious Halo game ever made, with an environment several times larger than the last two Halo games combined. Players can explore an expansive landscape filled with sprawling natural wonder, mystery, and a story that welcomes those new to the franchise as well as continues the Master Chief’s saga for our most dedicated fans.
