    Halo of the Wild.

    Calling the sequel Halo Infinite 2 would amuse me.

    Well, The Xbox division don't like to choose easy/obvious/logical names.

    This is true.

    Although Infinity is a ship in Halo 4/5 I iirc I don't feel this Infinite is actually directly referencing that.

    Anyway, the box art does a great job of evoking the very first Halo, maybe they'll finally give us the game we think we wanted instead of Halo 2 which went more linear and narrow.

    Halo infinite, a single player battle royals variant, where you drop onto a halo, with nothing but your jump jets, and has to scavenge and loot for supplies, taking out grunts, jackals and elites, aiming to be the last standing.

    Hilariously getting to the dodgy Flood level towards the end of the game before dying and having to start the whole game over.

    Someone found a short audio clip hidden in the E3 2019 trailer.

    Direct link to the clip itself.

    Not Infinite related, but Natasha McElhone has been cast as Halsey/Cortana in the upcoming TV show.

    @Graxlar_v3 No, the enemy faction of Halo Wars 2, led by the Brute, Atriox.

    I thought box art for cross-generational titles had "Xbox One - Xbox Series X" in the top corner and that big "Optimised for Series X" diamond?

    @Graxlar_v3 Well you should play it, it's good :D

    They are ex-Covenant, but that predates the split seen over the course of the last few games.



    Honestly you should play HW2 just for the Blur cutscenes, they're incredible.

    Britesparc, that image is a year old.

    @Ror yeah they are blur right?

    And I always meant to once I finished HW1 but it was not very good

    @Graxlar_v3 Yep.

    FWIW I though 2 was better, but I'm no authority on strategy games as you well know :D

    So is it worth trying to quickly whiz through HW2 on the assumption that elements of its plot will be referenced in Infinite?

    As much as I love Halo lore, you'll be lucky if there aren't at least 3 novels, 2 graphic novels, secret terminals from Halo 3 and 1 second screenshot from the Fireteam Raven arcade game you only get by scoring an exact amount aren't all required reading to get the most of the plot :p

    I stopped paying attention to the plot after the first Halo. Everything from there felt like it was more complicated than it needed to be.

    They have said that this one will be easy for newcomers to get into, so I think they've learned their lesson. As someone who reads all the novels etc, I always like that that stuff made it into the games, but it's not newcomer or casual player friendly at all.

    RE: The Banished, they'll have to intro them properly anyway, as no one but the Spirit of Fire crew know who they are. It couldn't hurt to at least watch the cutscenes from HW2 though, if you don't want to play it. They are really good.

    Can't wait for them to kill off Atriox in a cutscene in Halo Infinite.

    I havent read any terminals or followed outside lore but I got enough from playing the games to understand the main story line. I don't need everything explained all the time. I liked that there was a wider universe of stuff going on that led to the events I was a part of. Not like I know all of history in my daily life either.

    @Graxlar_v3 They spent the entire run of the Halo 4 co-op mode, Spartan Ops, as well as a number of novels and comics, building up Jul 'Mdama, the leader of the Covenant splinter faction you fight in 4 and 5. In the first mission of Halo 5, he got taken out by Fireteam Osiris. In a cutscene.

    Sometimes I replay the series and I think, I'll really concentrate this time and follow the plot, and I still get completely lost about half way though Halo 2 and when the plant from Little Shop of Horrors has a really weird cameo.

    This game is going to be rather special, isnít it?

    Quite a lot was cut from Halo 2, as Bungie have never managed to develop a game without massive issues. Specifically to the point above, there was an entire mission introducing the Gravemind that got cut.
