Halo Infinite: Trailer, Beta, and More!

 By:  isacantfly

During Microsoft’s Event at gamescom 2021, along with many other games, a new Halo Infinite Trailer was released, along with a Limited Edition Halo Themed Xbox One Series X for the series’ 20th Anniversary, and the release date. 

In August’s Halo Infinite Development Update video, it was said that 4v4 PvP and Big Team Battles would be present in the Halo Infinite Beta. To many fans’ dismay, it was said that Campaign co-op and The Forge mode wouldn’t be available during launch, and would be added in a post-launch patch. It’s also said that beta tests will be held post-launch for more content, similar to Overwatch’s PTR Mode. I don’t know about you, but I’m one of the “dismay” fans. It’s really a let down to not have The Forge or the Campaign co-op available to us, to me! The Halo Infinite Test Flight took place on November 15th, leaving fans with mixed results. Some fans weren’t able to log on to play, and others said they enjoyed it.

Halo Infinite’s release date is Wednesday, December 8th, 2021.
