Halo Infinite's Campaign Is Bigger Than Campaigns Of Last Two Games Combined

Halo Infinite is going to be a very big experience. The next game in the franchise has taken a more unorthodox approach and has added open-world elements to the game. Imagine having an open world Call of Duty. It feels weird, right? Anyway, I am excited, as I personally love me some innovation. Open world elements were added to another Xbox first-party title, Gears 5, and for me, it was an overall improvement compared to Gears 4.

343 Industries Studio Head Chris Lee recently held a press Q&A session where he talked about the upcoming Halo game. Lee claimed that the Halo Infinite campaign will be “several times” larger than the campaign of the last two games combined. That sounds like a lot. I just hope that the campaign quality doesn’t suffer because of its length. Infinite is also going to give tons of freedom to players about how they want to approach a target. Exploration is also a key element in the game, where players can be rewarded with some cool new upgrades and equipment.

“I think the way to think about it is this is Halo's take on open gameplay and what kind of providing the player with unprecedented levels of freedom can feel like. We really wanted to capture that moment of players being able to kind of feel what it would be like to be on a foreigner ring and unlock secrets and kind of new equipment or upgrades along the way as they're playing through the campaign,” Lee said in the Q&A session (courtesy of Wccftech). “One way to think about it that we talked about sometimes is to think about taking Halo CE, knocking the walls down and then giving players the freedom to explore. And while we have that kind of open experience, we do want there to be equipment and upgrades that you can find in the world along the way, so there are things that you can engage with along the way to do that as you traverse the world and continue Master Chief's story.”
