Halo Infinite Season 2, titled Lone Wolves is right around the corner. Here’s everything we know, including the release date, Battle Pass, new maps, and more.
Although Halo Infinite’s core gameplay and smooth launch were praised, players weren’t as impressed with the Battle Pass progression and Fracture: Tenrai event. The game has barely received any content over the course of Season 1, but the devs are looking to reinvigorate the game with the Season 2 update.
Halo Infinite’s devs 343 Industries have revealed key details concerning Season 2’s start date, roadmap, and concept art, so here’s everything we know about Halo Infinite Season 2: Lone Wolves.
- Halo Infinite Season 2 Lone Wolves start date
- Halo Infinite Season 2 Battle Pass & content
- Halo Infinite Season 2 Catalyst & Breaker maps
- Halo Infinite Season 2 game modes
- Halo Infinite Season 2 Fracture event
Halo Infinite Season 2 Lone Wolves start date: Season 1 end date
Halo Infinite Season 2 is set to kick off on May 3, 2022, with the Season 1 Battle Pass wrapping up on May 2.
Assuming there are no delays, players can jump into all of the new Halo content as soon as Season 1 ends. Thanks to the Season 2 roadmap we also received a preliminary start date for Season 3, which could begin on November 8, 2022.
Halo Infinite Season 2 Battle Pass & content
The devs gave players a taste of the Battle Pass content that arrives with Season 2, revealing that it will follow the ‘Lone Wolf’ theme.
The Season 2 Battle Pass will follow the same format as Season 1, with 100 tiers of both free and premium cosmetics to earn. There will be one major change though, and that’s the ability to earn back credits towards buying the next Battle Pass.
343 Industries previously showed off concept art for some of the Lone Wolf Spartans that we can expect in the Season 2 Battle Pass, but we’ll need to wait for official confirmation before breaking down the details.
Halo Infinite Season 2 Catalyst & Breaker maps
343 revealed some key details for both Catalyst and Breaker that arrive with Halo Infinite’s Season 2 update.
Catalyst is a 4v4 Arena map that looks to be set in a mossy, abandoned area. The devs mentioned that Catalyst is inspired by previous Halo areas, “even though the map is something completely new, there’s a ton of DNA from several legacy Forerunner locations in there.”
Breaker, on the other hand, is a much larger Big Team Battle map that looks to be set in the desert with a focus on territorial battles, “we designed this map to embrace base versus base combat where territorial ownership is key to success.”
Halo Infinite Season 2 game modes
Alongside revealing the map, Halo Infinite’s devs revealed the new game modes we can expect to see during Season 2.
Season 2 brings Last Spartan Standing, a free-for-all elimination mode, a new mode called Land Grab, and an updated version of the old favorite, King of the Hill.
Those familiar with Territories from Halo 2 and Halo 3 will notice a few similarities between it and the new Land Grab mode, “At the start of the match, there are 3 neutral zones around the map. When a player captures a zone, it is locked and gives their team 1 point. When all zones are captured, there is an intermission before 3 new neutral zones spawn. The first team to score 11 points wins.”
Players will receive Last Spartan Standing and King of the Hill on day one of Season 2, while Land Grab will arrive later on.
In addition, to these three modes, the devs also clued players in on the possibility of Forge arriving later in Season 2, “we want to get the Forge toolset into your hands sooner rather than later so that awesome community maps and modes can more rapidly make their way into the game.” A September 2022 release date is the goal for 343.
Halo Infinite Season 2 Fracture event
Season 1’s Fracture: Tenrai event brought plenty of samurai-themed cosmetics to the game, and the devs teased a similar event for Season 2. Thanks to the roadmap we know that the event will be called Fracture: Entrenched.
The devs said that it won’t connect to the ‘Lone Wolf’ theme of Season 2 and showed off concept art for the free armor core. Players can expect the first week of Fracture: Entrenched on May 24.
And that’s everything we know about Halo Infinite’s Season 2 update so far!
