We had a feeling that a new Halo title might make an appearance during Microsoft’s E3 2018 press conference, and sure enough, one did. In fact, Microsoft wasted little time in announcing this new Halo title, dubbed Halo Infinite, kicking off its show with the reveal trailer for the game. It looks like we’ll be joining Master Chief on another space-faring adventure soon.
The reveal trailer for Halo Infinite doesn’t really tell us very much about the game, aside from the fact that it’s being built on Microsoft and 343’s new SlipSpace Engine. We’re first shown an alien world with exotic fauna that are similar to the rhinoceros we have here on Earth. Eventually, the camera focuses on a group of UNSC soldiers, including one who enters the shot carrying that all-too-familiar Spartan helmet – presumably, this is the Master Chief himself.
The camera then pans out to show us that the world we’ve been looking in on is indeed a Halo, and humans definitely have a presence there. What those soldiers are doing on this Halo is yet to be seen – for that matter, specific details about Halo Infinite were hard to come by in general. Xbox’s Phil Spencer took the stage after the reveal trailer and said simply that in Halo Infinite, “We will join Master Chief on his greatest adventure yet to save humanity.”
That’s all we’re getting for the moment, but there’s always a chance that Microsoft revisits Halo Infinite before its press conference is over (at the time of this writing, the company’s E3 presser is really just getting started). However, the description in the trailer over on YouTube offers up a very interesting morsel of information. As it tuns out, Halo Infinite will be coming to both Xbox One and Windows 10.
Outside of spinoffs like Halo Wars and Halo: Spartan Assault, it’s rare to see a Halo game on PC, so we’ll definitely be keeping an eye on Halo Infinite. Hopefully we’ll have more information on Halo Infinite soon, so stay tuned, and keep it here at SlashGear for more from E3 2018.
