The moment a lot of Halo fans have been waiting for has just arrived. Microsoft has released the first official gameplay video for Halo: Infinite, packing 8 minutes of in-game footage.
Halo: Infinite will be using a new engine, the Slipspace Engine. As 343 Industries noted, the engine is developed with PC in mind. Moreover, the team aims to treat PC gamers as first-class citizens. It’s also worth noting that the first in-engine trailer for Halo: Infinite, that came out in 2019, was running on the PC.
Halo Infinite continues the story of the Master Chief as the third chapter of the Reclaimer Saga. According to the team, this is a direct sequel to Halo 5: Guardian. I haven’t played Halo 5 (as it never came out on the PC) but from what I can see, we’ll be fighting the Banished in Halo: Infinite.
Halo Infinite will give players more freedom than ever before to explore a sprawling Halo ring. This demo shows off just a small section of the open and expansive world we’ve crafted to deliver an epic Master Chief experience. The scale of the environment accessible to players is several times larger than that of the last two Halo games combined. The game will also have hidden rewards. Players will be also able to assault Banished fortifications in brand new ways.
Halo: Infinite releases in Holiday 2020.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
