The game takes place on the faraway world of Zeta Halo. The main story has you exploring the verdant world, unlocking new areas as you fight progressively harder enemies that adapt to the way you play. There are also a variety of different multiplayer modes, which allow you to fight, or work with, other players, in team missions.
The gameplay remains largely similar to previous entries, but Infinite adds several new power-ups and abilities, notably a grapple gun, which you can strategically use to make a quick escape from a losing battle, collect weapons from afar, or quickly swoop in to finish off an opponent. You can collect and unlock vehicles, such as tanks, aircraft and buggies that can give you the edge, by completing side quests such as rescuing stranded marines.
With a varied and unique map to explore, a unique setting and story, many upgrades, weapons and power-ups to collect and more, it serves as both a detailed and unique progression of the Halo franchise, while also acting as an accessible starting point for newcomers to both the genre and the series.
Our examiner, Ben Kendall, first checked Halo Infinite 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Oli Hawkins and updated a year ago.
