Halo is as synonymous with Xbox as Ant is with Dec, fish is with chips and Ross is with Rachel. They are just meant to be together, no matter what it takes. It might have been delayed by an extra year, but all signs point towards that being a good thing. Drum roll please as the legendary Master Chief returns in Halo Infinite, and the campaign is available to play right now on Xbox and PC.
With the free-to-play Halo Infinite multiplayer surprising launching to the masses a few weeks ago, attention now turns to the single-player portion of Halo Infinite. And this time around, the Master Chief is returning to the titular Halo rings.
Set a few months after the events of Halo 5: Guardians, Master Chief has once again been floating through space and is picked up by a travelling cruiser. Before long, Chief returns to a Halo ring and where it all began, this time around it is Zeta Halo.
Halo Infinite introduces an open world setting to the Halo universe for the first time. Zeta Halo is home to the Banished – and Craig – who were first introduced in Halo Wars 2. This time around, the Banished are hell bent on repairing this damaged Halo ring and using it to control the Flood. Does this confirm the return of the Flood? Only time will tell.
Halo Infinite promises a return to the old school Halo games of 20 years ago and is available on the Xbox Store now priced at £54.99. It will act as DLC for the Halo Infinite Multiplayer so launch that and you will find the campaign in there. As always, being a first party Microsoft game, it is also available in Xbox Game Pass at no extra cost for subscribers.
