Halo Infinite Teaser “SIGNAL DETECTED. TAG DESIGNATION: FOE” –
Catch all the action here Xbox Games Showcase July 23rd
The next Halo FPS title has been revealed, Halo Infinite. Halo Infinite is the next entry in the Reclaimer Saga and follows the Master Chief after the events of Halo 5. Coming to Windows 10 and Xbox One.
The Master Chief returns in Halo Infinite – the next chapter of the legendary franchise. Developed by 343 Industries and created with our new Slipspace Engine, Halo Infinite was revealed at the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing with a thrilling engine demo that provides a glimpse into the future of the Halo franchise, leading it into new and unexpected directions.
Xbox One and Windows 10 Exclusive.
Here’s breakdown of the Halo Infinite Trailer from E3 2018. Halo 6 has been revealed and it’s called Halo Infinite. The game features a new engine called the Slipspace Engine, a new classic inspired art style, and is set after the events of Halo 5 on what appears to be Installation 07.
Halo Infinite has already confirmed to have split screen support, multiple betas through a flighting program, black undersuits, a more Master Chief focused story campaign, and will release exclusively on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.
After a notable absence from this year’s Xbox E3 press conference, many fans began speculating when they would get their first glimpse or tease for the next installment of the franchise. 343 Industries has responded to many questions and speculation posts, informing us that Halo 6 won’t be revealed soon, not at Gamescom, not at Pax, but when 343 Industries is ready. Let me explain why that is a good thing!
Halo 6 News! Halo 6 will have Split-Screen and Black Undersuits!
At yesterday’s DICE Summit in Las Vegas, Bonnie Ross took to the stage to talk about world building. During her speech she talked about some of the lessons learned when they took the helm of the Halo franchise.
One of the painful lessons, aside from Halo MCC’s multiplayer and launch woes, was the decision to remove split-screen for Halo 5. Since then the community has been vocal and Bonnie Ross announced that all future Halo FPS titles will have split-screen. Expect Halo 6, or whatever the next FPS title is to be called, to launch around fall 2018. Keep your eyes out this E3 in June as many expect a teaser… or maybe something along the lines of Anniversary like treatment (*cough* Halo 3 *cough*)
To coincide with this announcement, Halo community manager Ske7ch took to Waypoint and reiterated the news Bonnie Ross had said earlier in the day, and he contributed his confirmation that “black undersuits” would be accounted for moving forward.
For those unaware, black undersuits have been in high-demand ever since 343 Industries replaced them with coloured undersuits on our Spartans. Many fans share their distaste and often find it harder to distinguish the many armour variants easily when the under suits match the colour of the armour above. It’s a minor thing, but a wildly hot topic among the passionate Halo fans.
Mega Bloks sent out a promotional email headlining some new Halo products this coming fall. Included were two previously never seen Halo vehicles. Now Mega Bloks has followed the Halo lore to the teeth when it comes to their toys, accurately depicting characters and vehicles from multiple Halo games; from Halo CE, to Halo Wars, all the way to Halo 4.
Many are speculating that these vehicles may appear as DLC to Halo 4 (perhaps along with Spartan Ops Season 2, which still hasn’t announced as either DLC or bundled with Halo 5). Or, these vehicles may appear in a future Halo title, i.e., Halo 5 or 6. Or, there’s always the other option that these vehicles may never appear. Which is highly unlikely as why would a company decide (out of the blue) to create whatever they want when they’ve been accurately following the Halo lore for so long.
The UNSC Siege Bike
“ONI’s solution to single-manned rapid assault vehicles like the Covenant Ghost or Brute Chopper is none other than the UNSC Siege Bike. Positioned on a heavy-grade, all-terrain single traction tread, the Siege Bike can easily traverse challenging environments, reaching speeds of over 145kph (90mph) while maintaining incredible control and field dexterity. The forward-facing armor plate protects the operator while displaying intel for tactical information, as well as firing system controls.
The Siege Bike’s armament is a side-mounted heavy machine gun (M268 HMG) with spectrum-enhanced visual tracking functionality, designed specifically to target well-fortified enemy strongholds and barricades. The goal of the UNSC Siege Bike is simple yet brutal: Through the deployment of multiple, heavily armed and swift Siege Bikes, offensive assaults can form an unstoppable wall of firepower, quickly tearing through enemy defenses.”
The UNSC Light Assault VTOL
“In the vein of the Hornet and the Sparrowhawk, the UNSC Light Assault VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) craft is a heavily armed, full mobility combat flier designed to operate in confined environments, such as forests, cave interiors, or even a skyscraper-dense metropolis. Unlike the other UNSC VTOLs which often have limited push mobility due to their turbine placement, the Light Assault VTOL has three turbines, one of which is a rear-mounted thrust system that allows the vehicle to quickly and deftly navigate narrow spaces, as well as engage swift enemy fliers like the Covenant Banshee. Lightly armored and capable of carrying only a single pilot, the real benefit of this vehicle is its armament: Below its flanking turbines hang twin autocannons (GAU-10/A HAC) and a pair of rocket pods (M302 Class-1 GMLS), both of which are extremely competent arsenals when providing ground support or engaging in air-to-air combat.”
I would personally love to see these vehicles in any video game form. Many fans were left with their heads hanging low when 343i confirmed there would be no UNSC flying vehicle.
