After suffering a delay, Halo Infinite is finally here. And it’s been worth the wait.
This latest entry in the Halo franchise goes back to its roots, with the action taking place on yet another Halo ring. That means the scenery is very familiar at times, but the gameplay has some meaningful additions that keep it feeling fresh.
Master Chief now has a grappling hook, for example. It allows him to quickly scale the environment, pull weapons towards him, and even dash at enemies before hitting them with a mighty melee attack. The biggest change, however, is that much of the action now takes place in what is essentially an open world. You’re free to go straight to the next mission if you wish, but it’s worth taking time to capture new forward operating bases, take out high-value targets, and more.
Whether you have an Xbox One or an Xbox Series X, Halo Infinite will impress. It’s quite possibly the best FPS on Xbox right now, so make sure you give it a try. And of course, it’s available via Xbox Game Pass.
