Inside Infinite is the name of the new monthly column that will be published until the launch of Halo Infinite on the web HaloWaypoint, the official portal of 343 Industries. Thanks to these articles, which will arrive on the last Thursday of each month, we will know new details about the development of the game. Let’s see a summary of what was shown last night, in the first article.
The Halo Infinite sandbox
To launch this new section, the Halo team decided to interview the people in charge of working on the game’s sandbox; i.e. designers who visualize and design game mechanics, weapons, items and power-ups, parts of environments, etc.
In the article, we got to discover aspects of the two known weapons, which are coming back fresher than ever, as well as the news we discovered during the Xbox Showcase event in July 2020. This includes, among others: the rifle combat that returns with a classic look, The mythical switchman, the new Bulldog shotgun, the new Hydra Launcher and more.
Another aspect that stands out is the equipment, which we haven’t seen since Halo 3, one of the most popular games among classic fans. You can go into battle with the deployable shield, as we saw in the first trailer with gameplay a few months ago.
Another detail that is mentioned is that, once the game is launched, the weapons will receive fixes and balances, depending on their behavior in online multiplayer.
Personalization and rewards
Personalization is the order of the day and in this INSIDE INFINITE, we’ve learned more about it. This will be an important aspect of the game, and here’s what the studio says about it:
We create weapons, vehicles, player mechanics, and systems that are intuitive and rewarding in the game. We respect Halo’s legacy by listening to longtime player complaints, and we try to maintain that integrity when the creation of the gameplay.
343 Industries sandbox kit
