Halo Infinite’s multiplayer constantly keeps impressing

So my fellow Halo enthusiasts, did you get an invite to join Halo Infinite’s multiplayer technical preview? If not, there’s always a way for us unlucky ones to find out more about our favorite games. This time 343 Industries themselves went out of their way to talk in-depth about a lot of stuff. Customization, PC graphics option, and so on.

Check out their lengthy video below if you have the time. If not, I picked out the most interesting news this video contains.

The biggest features (and some that are missing, unfortunately)

Firstly, Halo Infinite decided its multiplayer mode won’t have assassinations. For those unfamiliar with the Halo franchise, Assassinations are a special takedown that takes stage in third-person. The enemy is killed in a lengthy and spectacular animation that rewards the killer with a special medal. Assassinations won’t be present during Halo Infinite’s multiplayer launch, but they might arrive sometime later as they’re a feature the fans love but are hard to implement in a satisfactory way.

Secondly, we can now drop guns. No need to find another one to swap, if you want to leave your weapon behind, there’s a designated button for that. This is something Halo’s been missing for a long time. A feature many wanted to see way back when is finally here so it’s time to celebrate!

Less important stuff

  • Spike grenades are back
  • Walking doesn’t reveal you on the radar
  • You can’t match together different armor sets (A helmet piece belonging to one set can’t be matched with a chest piece that belongs to another)
  • Players pick armor coatings for their looks but can’t pick a color by themselves
  • Weapon sounds sound sharp and powerful
  • Thrusters are a part of Equipment now
  • There’s no “doot doot dooooot” sound after dying which is inexcusable

What do you say, is Halo Infinite the next big thing? Because it sure as hell looks like something that’s going to take the world by storm.
