Halo Infinite finally launched after a great deal of waiting and following the poor reception to Halo 5: Guardians, it had much to accomplish. The burden was not merely on the campaign but also on the multiplayer component of the famous sci-fi first-person shooter.
Halo has a legacy in multiplayer games that can not be denied, as its predecessors had a great part in the popularisation and progression of multiplayer first-person shooters. Thus, the burden on Halo Infinite was no small one but many issues plagued it.
Along with the still prevalent horrible matchmaking issues that are plaguing the players, there are other complaints from the community as well, such as the lack of content, especially maps. Previous halo games had many iconic maps but Infinite seems to be lacking.
A very crucial component of Halo games was Forge. Forge is basically a level editor that was launched with Halo 3 and received critical acclaim for its versatility and ease of use. Forge allowed players to create their own maps and a variety of other things. Thus, community-driven development meant there was no shortage of content.
Regrettably, Halo Infinite did not have Forge upon launch for a long time and though it is to be released later, the fact that it wasn’t present upon launch coupled with the lack of content in halo Infinite made players disappointed in the game.
However, Forge mode was leaked and became accessible on the co-op Beta of the PC version of Halo Infinite. Since then, many players have gone on to create a myriad of maps and objects and even scripted events. Infinite’s Forge has significantly more advanced scripting capabilities than previous mode versions.
For instance, it’s possible to create scripts that make objects dispense powerups, automatically flip vehicles upright when they tip over and spawn in “airstrikes” that drop explosive fusion coils on the map when activated.
People have been recreating beloved maps from old Halo games as well as creating maps inspired by other games. Now, @VidGamesPete has created a level inspired by classic platformer Super Mario 64’s famous Lava level.
As can be seen, the level has many features of the level such as its namesake lava, green pipes, and moving platforms. The map is sure to give any player a strong hit of nostalgia. Now, imagine playing on this map with your friends or other online players once Forge mode finally launches for Halo Infinite.
Halo Infinite is not a small name in gaming, same as the Halo series is not unknown to many. Halo launched right alongside the first Xbox console among its first exclusives and took the world by storm. It quickly became one of the premier first-person shooters of the time, with its captivating story, likeable characters, and thrilling gameplay.
With the release of Halo 2, Halo became a household name among console owners. Leveraging the newly launched Xbox Live services and online features of Xbox consoles, it was quickly propelled to stardom.
Not only was the gameplay vastly improved, but the story also was quite brilliant and enthralling, not to mention the multiplayer component garnering the most acclaim.
Halo 2 greatly contributed to the popularity of online console gaming but in particular, first-person shooting games. Subsequent Halo games also had their own contributions that made them great games. As such, Halo Infinite has a lot to accomplish. We sincerely hope that 343 Industries works hard and delivers with this game.
