Halo Infinite first gameplay footage revealed during Xbox Games Showcase

The first gameplay footage for Halo Infinite is finally here, and the Master Chief is looking good.


It seems like we’ve been waiting forever to see more about the next chapter in the Halo series. Today, though, we finally got our first look at Halo Infinite’s gameplay and boy does it look absolutely stunning.

The gameplay kicks off with the Master Chief in a ship that is shot down, it quickly leads to some great FPS action that includes a lot of classic Halo: Combat Evolve vibes. It was an absolute joy to watch and no doubt has players even more excited than ever to dive into Halo Infinite when it arrives later this year.

The gameplay trailer itself goes on for around 8 minutes or so, which is more than enough time for the Master Chief to lay down some action on the Banished and their forces. Some special things to note about this trailer are the introduction of an actual map, which players can supposedly explore as they see fit. There is also a grappling hook gun of some sort, which looks like it is going to bring a nice bit of variation to the gameplay formula.

Overall, Halo Infinite is shaping up to look like a great new entry in the series. We only have a few short months left to go before the holiday season arrives, and you can check out the new gameplay in the video embed above.

There’s still plenty of other news coming out of the Xbox Games Showcase today, too. In fact, we now know that Halo Infinite will also release on the Xbox One alongside its release on the Xbox Series X and Windows PC. That’s good news for Xbox players who aren’t looking to upgrade just yet, though the game is said to be best when played on an Xbox Series X.
