         Prior to the display of the first look of the highly anticipated game title: HALO Infinite, at Xbox Games Showcase on July 23rd – the fans of infinite went crazy! The look of the trailer at the Xbox live game showcase was tremendously stunning which only helped to increase the excitement of its fans.

Developers from 343 industries in an interview also called Infinite: A ‘Spiritual Reboot’ for the HALO franchise upon the question regarding the driving force for reshaping the idea behind HALO. The story campaign of this game is a part of the reboot process of the franchise that takes us back to the basics of the HALO universe. Fans will now be playing the character of Master Chief making their way across the presence of a new mysterious ring several times larger than the previous one.  

We will be fighting against the Banished: A faction within the array of Covenant aliens with the character of Master Chief adrift in space and stuck inside the huge territory of the Banished. The fighting journey of Master Chief during the game will continue until he finds a way out.

This amazing new game title in the HALO universe has made most fans extremely happy and most are excited about the release of the game.

However, some of the fans were not truly pleased with the display of graphics during the live showcase. In response to that, 343 representative Chris Lee cleared the confusion and said that the game is still in its development phase and they are wrestling to achieve the growing next-generation 4K resolution demands. However, with a close look during the live session at maximum resolution, the game displayed breath-taking graphics, running smoothly at 60 frames per second.

              The expected launch of the game is during the latter half of 2020 for Xbox Series X gaming consoles but it’s still not confirmed. Infinite resides as the sixth number in the main series of this universe and fourteen in the overall universe. The storyline of Master Chief from the first look at Infinite seems to be a continuation of the ‘Reclaimer Saga’ with the aim to set a new ground for the HALO universe. HALO infinite’s first look is well set after the last game with no glimpse of the former virtual character, Cortana and Master Chief being lost in space.

Phil Spencer, Vice President of Microsoft games said, “With Halo Infinite we will join Master Chief on his greatest adventure yet to save humanity" while talking about the new game during the live showcase. On Xbox Wire, a blog from Microsoft revealed some more details about the upcoming game. Community Director of 343 Industries, Brian Jarrard said, “Like last year’s reveal trailer, this latest look at Halo Infinite is powered by our new Slipspace Engine - An engine built from the ground up to realize our incredibly ambitious aspirations for the future of the franchise". He also wrote, “Which yes, also includes the long-awaited return of split-screen support to the series."


The split-screen feature was missing in the last entry of this gaming series and fans were not pleased about it. This game is considered one of the best games for both its multiple-player and single-player gameplay among gamers. The introduction of this new split-screen feature has made HALO fans happy.
