The <i>Halo<\/i> franchise is beloved by many gamers, especially those who\u2019ve grown up with the Xbox consoles over the years. Master Chief is one of the most iconic video game characters of all time and you can\u2019t forget the <i>Halo<\/i> theme song. Next in line for the series is <i>Halo Infinite<\/i> \u2014 which is being developed by 343 Industries.\r\n\r\nIt was finally showcased at this year\u2019s E3. It was a cinematic trailer that showcased a little bit of the theme that the developers are striving for. Sure, we didn\u2019t get any gameplay footage \u2014 but that should be on its way very shortly. The trailer showcases the iconic power suit and the sound of its shield booting up. These details are small, but so powerful if you\u2019ve been a loyal <i>Halo<\/i> fan over the years.\r\n\r\nJust recently, we received some more news on this upcoming first-person shooter. First off, <i>Halo Infinite<\/i> will have split-screen capabilities. This is huge news for fans who enjoy co-op experiences. The developers of <i>Halo 5 <\/i>made the weird decision of excluding it in the game, which received a lot of backlash. It\u2019s good to see this feature back in action.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/m.youtube.com\/watch?v=MBb88gLmJZY\r\n\r\n<i>Halo<\/i> games are renowned for their multiplayer experiences and split-screen makes them that much better. Experiencing the campaign in split-screen with a friend also is amazing. Additionally, this game will support LAN. This was a revolutionary design at the time when the first <i>Halo<\/i> game came out. It started the LAN party craze that many gamers grew up loving.\r\n\r\nThe developers at 343 Industries also revealed that Xbox and PC are the first platforms that will have access to the beta, which is being referred to as flights. The beta will start off small and then gradually start expanding to other systems.\r\n\r\nAs far as this game\u2019s release, holiday season 2020 is the target period. It makes sense too. Project Scarlett \u2014 the name of the next Xbox console \u2014 could possibly get released around the same time. So, this game could be one of its launch titles. It would be a phenomenal way to introduce fans to the console and build buzz before the PlayStation 5 comes out.\r\n\r\nFinally, the developers recently talked a little bit about the armor customizations. It seems like there will be quite a few options, giving players the chance to design their solider as they see fit.\u00a0These updates are great to see. It seems like <i>Halo Infinite<\/i> is trending in the right direction.
