Halo Infinite Online Coop Gameplay Footage Leaked
Leaked free roam gameplay footage from the online coop mode of Halo Infinite has surfaced on the internet. The footage shows a pair of Spartans roaming about the game’s open world and taking on the Covenant.
Based on the leaked footage, development of the online coop mode for Halo Infinite appears to be coming alone rather well. There are, however, some minor animation bugs that need to be ironed out. The footage shows both Spartans free roaming the game’s world map, with no apparent signs of latency or connection issues.
The aforementioned leaked coop gameplay footage can be seen in the video above. When one Spartan gets taken out in the online coop mode for Halo Infinite, the player can spectate their teammate while waiting to respawn. Going by the footage, players are unable to spawn until a friendly spawn is available. This likely means that as long as your teammate is engaged in combat with nearby enemies, you’ll be unable to spawn on them.
Going by the leak, Halo Infinite’s online coop mode is set to be available for testing via Halo Insider by next month, and a full release is scheduled for sometime in August, 2022. The game was developed by 343 Industries and released by Xbox Game Studios back in 2021. It is the third installment in the “Reclaimer Saga,” after Halo 5: Guardians, and the sixth mainstream entry in the Halo franchise.
The Forerunner ringworld Zeta Halo, commonly known as Installation 07, is the setting for the campaign, which focuses on the human super-soldier Master Chief and his conflict with the Banished. Meanwhile, the multiplayer component of the game is free to play, in contrast to earlier entries in the series.
Infinite was slated for release as a launch title with the Xbox Series X/S on November 10, 2020, but was postponed in August 2020.
The campaign was published on Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on December 8, 2021, after an open beta release of the multiplayer component on November 15, 2021, in conjunction with the franchise’s 20th anniversary.
The game’s campaign offers a semi-open world structure; players can freely explore areas of the environment, the ringworld Zeta Halo, which are divided off from each other and initially unreachable. Forward Operating Bases, which may be cleared of adversaries and seized, are dispersed around the area. Captured bases function as fast-travel points.
Other interesting activities may be found everywhere around Zeta Halo’s surface, including high-value targets to kill, Marine troops to save, and Banished propaganda towers to destroy. By completing these side missions, the player gains Valor, which can be used to purchase new weapons and vehicles from Forward Operating Bases. Within the ring’s surface, there are additional areas that are more linear and adhere to the style of older Halo missions.
