HALO INFINITE SEASON 2: LONE WOLVES – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW (Part 2)
Updated: May 23
In Part 2, we will cover what we know about new maps, campaign additions, and Forge open beta.
Halo Infinite Season 2 Multiplayer Maps
Big Team Battle: Breaker
Breaker is set in a desert with two massive fortresses for teams to use as their home bases. 343 says that the map is particularly great for Capture the Flag, thanks to the long center lane that offers snipers' vision and the huge getaways for Warthog drivers as long as you avoid the giant laser that guards it. That beam is an absolute dynamic element of the map, offering both opportunities and challenges in-game. The map is designed to “embrace base versus base combat where territorial ownership is key to success”.
Breaker is available in Halo Infinite’s Big Team Battle mode (BTB) matchmaking playlist, the Last Spartan Standing, and Custom Games.
The Forerunner structure with faded silver everywhere, various ramps leading to different heights, hard light bridges, and plenty of hallways, is perfect for fast-paced Arena action. It’s exactly what you expect out of a classic Halo map. The structure is connected to a Power Equipment Spawn. Be careful while traveling through here, watch your footsteps, and do not disrupt the passing Sentinels
Catalyst is a 4v4 map, available in Arana matchmaking playlists, including Rank and Custom Games.
Halo Infinite Season 2 Co-op campaign support
The co-op campaign allows up to four players to experience the latest open-world experience. Halo Infinite’s second season won’t ship with an online campaign co-op when it launches on May 3rd, 343 Industries announced. They have scheduled Halo Infinite's co-op campaign release date for August. This will include full online co-op, adding support for up to four players over the Xbox network. 343 Industries also plans to ship the "Mission Replay" option around the same time, allowing players to replay specific missions from the story. When the Halo Infinite co-op campaign debuts, the mode will launch as a free update for those who purchased the $60 campaign, or with access via Xbox Game Pass.
Halo Infinite Season 2: Forge open beta test
While 343 hasn't taken care of Forge fans to date, Season 2 hopes to offer to set things straight. The returning map-building tool enters open beta later this season, briefly looking at the work-in-progress mode. It should be largely feature-complete once it launches, permitting players to make and distribute custom maps and modes ahead of its official release in Season 3.
The Forge open beta has a scheduled release in September according to the most recent Halo Infinite roadmap, filling the hole following Season 3's postponement. 343 has likewise expressed it has no designs to repudiate access over the beta time frame. The mode will consistently progress from beta into a full delivery after some time, meaning it basically "dispatches" in September, just with somewhat less cleanliness. While it gives the studio a couple of additional months of public testing, just expect bug fixes and refinements during the test.
