Halo Infinite information may point to Battle Royale mode
A Reddit thread has broken down all of the new confirmed information for Halo Infinite, and some of these features hint at a Battle Royale mode for the game.
In a massive Reddit thread, a player has detailed all the confirmed information regarding Halo Infinite, which is due to launch by the end of 2021. In this thread, the user breaks down content relating to the game’s campaign, multiplayer features, and touches on a system that could hint at the rumored Battle Royale mode coming to the game.
Let’s breakdown some of the important details that were listed under this thread from user u/IntrinsicGamer.
Halo Infinite Will have a dynamic weather system
Apparently, the Halo ring will have a day and night cycle, along with weather systems, including wind. While a rainstorm or snowstorm system won’t exist at launch, the developers have stated they are “excited about the future.”

The thread states that it’s implied there may be future campaign content, we’d like to think this very well could be the foundation for a robust Halo-themed Battle Royale mode. A dynamic weather system in a battle royale always adds great variety to the gameplay, and in a universe like Halo, this would be a welcome change.
As a bonus, it appears the day/night cycles will also affect the in-game cutscenes, which will be an interesting extra layer of immersion.
The game isn’t exactly “Open World”
While players may believe that the game will be an open-world Halo title in the Campaign, the design for the game isn’t necessarily that. Players will have the option to do side-quests around the game world, but all of these different pathways will still lead to the overall next objective.
It seems that the developers focused on making levels similar to Halo: Combat Evolved’s “Silent Cartographer” mission, where each pathway the player takes will feel like a massive and unique experience, but will still ultimately lead to the next point of the game.
In theory, this should add plenty of replay value to the missions for casual players and completionists alike.
A Weapon upgrade system was planned
During development, a weapon upgrade system for the campaign was originally planned, but the developers eventually felt that the system veered away from what Halo was.
Instead, an Equipment upgrade system was chosen, which lets you upgrade equipment items you’ll find on your travels. As a middle ground for the scrapped weapon upgrade system, you’ll instead find powerful and unique weapon variants while traveling the environment.
