The game features typical gameplay found in past Halo games. The game's campaign mode features a semi-open world structure. Players can freely explore the setting, Zeta Halo, which is segmented off from each other and initially impassable. Scattered throughout the environment are Forward Operating Bases, which can be cleared of enemies and captured. Captured bases serve as fast-travel points.
The game's graphics are acclaimed, with many critics deeming the game a return to form for the series.
Halo Infinite features a multiplayer mode, which supports typical multiplayer game modes, such as Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and other variants. The game has a set of training modes for new players. Players can try out weapons in weapon drills, or play against computer-controlled bot players in practice matches. The multiplayer mode of Halo Infinite features a variety of game modes. Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and other modes are available in standard 4-versus-4 and Big Team Battle variants, with the latter bumping the player count up to 24. New to multiplayer are ability pickups, which allow a player to activate a special power a limited number of times, such as dashing, active camouflage, and "repulsor" charges that can knock enemies and projectiles back.
Halo Infinite offers a variety in terms of replayability. This is in part due to the campaign mode, in which the player can explore the ringworld Zeta Halo in a semi-open world.
Overall, Halo Infinite is the 6th game in the Halo series, and the third game in the Reclaimer Saga. It follows the super soldier Master Chief and his fight against the Banished on the Forerunner ring world, Zeta Halo. Halo Infinite is set to be released on December 8, 2021, and will coincide with the series' 20th anniversary.
