Halo Infinite comes out Dec. 8, and we got a new video focused on its campaign on Monday.


Microsoft gave us a glimpse at Halo Infinite's campaign Monday, ahead of the highly anticipated game's Dec. 8 launch on Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One and PC. The video gave us hints about the story and scale of the series' "biggest campaign yet."

It's our first time seeing the Microsoft exclusive first-person shooter's campaign mode since some fans expressed concerns about the game's visuals in a summer 2020 gameplay demo. The game was subsequently delayed by more than a year.

The game will launch with its single-player campaign and multiplayer, but campaign co-op and the Forge level editor mode won't come until 2022.
