Halo Infinite concept artwork for the campaign's open world

[Update]: Halo Infinite's co-op campaign, Forge editor and Season 3 have been delayed until November 2022.

If you've had your fill of the free-to-play multiplayer and are now itching to sink your teeth into Halo Infinite's campaign mode, you'll be happy to hear that it has now finally arrived. However, unlike the multiplayer, the campaign requires an actual purchase and will set you back $60 or €60 for the whole experience.

As for the story, Halo Infinite's campaign will continue on after the events of Halo 5 and will task you with facing down The Banished on the Zeta Halo ringworld. Outmanned and outgunned, you'll need to fight against an assortment of heavily armed aliens in order to save the entirety of the universe... or as Master Chief probably sees it at this point, just have a nice Thursday evening.

While the gameplay should be mostly familiar to anyone that has played a recent Halo game, Halo Infinite does spice things up by including an open world you can explore. There's still plenty of linear missions set within the ringworld, but between those you'll be able to roam across the land taking out outposts, opening up fast-travel waypoints, and naturally, collecting resources that will allow you to bring in new weapons and vehicles.

What all of this looks like in action, however, that you can find out through the recent Campaign Overview trailer. Have a gander, it's a fairly detailed one:

It's also worth mentioning that Halo Infinite is currently available via the Xbox Game Pass. So unless you plan to endlessly replay the campaign, it would probably be a wise idea to just subscribe for a month and finish it that way since it'll cost you a lot less money.

Whatever your choice may be, you can learn more about Halo Infinite, as well as check out some of the user reviews, over at Steam.
