It’s no secret that Microsoft had Halo Infinite brewing for their game system. However, there was a lot about the game that was left a mystery. At the Microsoft E3 2019 press conference, we learned quite a bit about the highly anticipated game.
The trailer opens up with a man trapped in a spaceship with little power, watching an old hologram message of his family. He finds the iconic Master Chief floating in space and rescues him. There’s an incredibly cool sequence that occurs while Master Chief boots up his system, which is reminiscent of the first Halo.
We find out that everything has been lost while he slept and the trailer closes out with him ready to defend the ship from what we can assume are Prometheans. There’s also a moment at the very end featuring Cortana, the Chief’s AI and longtime partner.
Halo Infinite was first announced during E3 2018 with details trickling down since then, such as 343’s Frank O’Connor discussing the multiplayer on Twitter, Chris Lee (Studio Head FPS at 343 Industries) clarifying how microtransactions will work, and a new piece of concept art.
343 Industries’ Bonnie Ross had previously spoken about the Slipspace engine that was built from the ground up for Halo Infinite. It was then decided that before work on Halo Infinite would begin, the Slipspace engine would be created to benefit not only developers but to expand the scope and future of Halo as a whole.
Halo Infinite will be a launch title for Xbox Project Scarlett, and is expected to release sometime during Holiday 2020.
Pokdepinion: Now this is something I expected and I have high hopes for. I’m very excited to see what’s up, and I’m also expecting some great visuals in the game.
