Halo Infinite: To the absence of cooperative mode and Launch Forge, Halo Infinite adds the impossibility of choosing which mission to replay, although it plans to fix it. One of the characteristics common to all Halo is the possibility of, once the campaign is over for the first time, replay any mission we want whenever we want. An option that allows us to relive our favorite moments, get the skulls and specific achievements of a phase, or gradually overcome the game in legendary difficulty and LASO (Legendary All Skulls On) mode. However, it seems that Halo Infinite has chosen to break this tradition. The title only allows running the story without giving the option to select a specific level. A sacrilege only at the height of removing the split screen (we look at you, Halo 5 …). From 343 Industries they have wanted to clarify the reason for the decision and have promised to review it in the future.
“We don’t have a date yet, but we’re working on it,” acknowledged Paul Crocker, Associate Creative Director at 343 Industries, in an interview for The Verge. “We want it to work well and when you have a more open game, things get quite complicated. In the end, we focused on making the best singleplayer campaign possible and from there on adding functions. We wanted both the cooperative and the possibility of replaying the missions. They were on their way out, but we had to prioritize to get there on time. ” To compensate, Crocker anticipates that collectibles (the mythical Halo skulls and the new data pads) accumulate between games, so we take one during one pass and it will not be necessary to get it in any other.
Halo Infinite pending accounts
The Halo Infinite notes mark it as one of the best shooters of 2021, but as Crocker acknowledges, the game still has outstanding accounts. To the option of replaying any mission, we must add the cooperative and forge modes, which will arrive at the end of May, coinciding with the closing of the first season of its multiplayer mode. And precisely with the latter they also have to do some of the features yet to be closed. The community is demanding a different online progression system (for which the first improvements have already arrived) and new modes and maps such as Infection, Fiesta, SWAT or Free for All (for which there is a first date: before the end year). This time the mission of the Master Chief is long overdue.
