Halo is known for its competitive multiplayer mode, but for many fans, it’s the epic campaigns that keep them hooked on the series. Where will Halo Infinite’s story take us, and how will it play? We’ve got all the details here.

Halo Infinite has run into some trouble over the course of its development. The game was delayed before its December 8, 2021 release date was confirmed, and it won’t be launching with Forge or co-op Campaign.

Thankfully, these setbacks haven’t dampened the excitement for the next chapter of Master Chief’s story in the new game. Here’s everything we know about Halo Infinite’s Campaign.

Halo Infinite Campaign storyline

Halo Infinite’s single-player is set to pick up three years after the events of Halo 5: Guardians, and be the continuation of the Reclaimer story started by 343 in Halo 4. Iconic protagonist Master Chief is said to be playing a more significant role than in the previous game.

The story will follow on from the AI Cortana taking control of the galaxy using Guardians, the ancient Forerunner war machines. Chief will find another AI called “The Weapon,” who hints that the original Cortana was erased and replaced.

Footage we have seen from the game hints that Chief will start the Campaign floating through space near the Zeta Halo, where he will be saved by a UNSC soldier known only as “The Pilot.”

Much of the game is expected to center around battling the Banished on Zeta Halo, trying to find a way back to earth, and unraveling the mystery surrounding Cortana and The Weapon.

Halo Infinite Campaign gameplay

Concrete details surround Halo Infinite’s campaign have been relatively scarce, but we do know that it is set to shake up the linear formula found in previous installments.

Infinite looks to be opting for a more open approach, featuring a series of diverse sandboxes to dive into. From the gameplay we’ve seen, it looks as though players will be free to explore the various regions of the Zeta Halo map, rather than playing through rigid missions.

The different maps are said to be tied together by the game’s narrative, meaning that each area will likely have a number of missions to finish before the story takes players to the next map.

This change in approach also opens the door for more side objectives to complete in between story missions. A map screen shown at E3 in 2020 seemed to show open-world staples like bounties and outposts to take on.

That was everything we know about Halo Infinite’s Campaign. We’re expecting more details to be revealed closer to launch, so stay tuned on Charlie INTEL for future updates.

GTA V and Elden Ring could come to mobile with Xbox Cloud Gaming

Xbox Cloud Gaming could see both GTA V and Elden Ring come to mobile, as reports claim that plans are underway.

Published

Reports are claiming that both GTA V and Elden Ring could be seen on mobile, as Xbox ramps up their Cloud Gaming plans.

Xbox Cloud Gaming is a new service from Microsoft which will allow players to enjoy their library of games on various devices including mobile versions.

The idea is to allow Xbox Game Pass Ultimate owners to play their favorite games on devices other than an Xbox console. This can be done on either the Xbox Game Pass app or Xbox.com, and they have already announced that players will have access to “over 100 console games.”

To the community’s surprise, rumors are suggesting that both Elden Ring and GTA V could be part of the scheme, which would mean that both games will be available on mobile for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members.

According to Knoebelbroet, Xbox is “ramping up their plans to bring Games that are not part of the #XboxGamePass to Xcloud,” claiming that games “like GTA V, Soul Hackers 2, and Elden Ring” could be a part of that plan.

The Tweet also contains an image of both Elden Ring and Soul Hackers 2 on the Xbox Cloud Gaming website, but the Twitter user advises that the community should take this “with a grain of salt.”

It would be pretty big to see games like Elden Ring and GTA V on mobile, as these games are some of the most popular around. We saw Apex Legends take to mobile in 2022, so perhaps there’s more to come for mobile gamers.

Apex Legends’ popularity reaches new heights after Season 14 update

With the release of Apex Legends Season 14, the Battle Royale game is experiencing an unprecedented amount of active players.

Published

on

Apex Legends Season 14 has achieved a new peak in popularity for Respawn Entertainment’s FPS Battle Royale game.

Apex Legends Season 14 brings some exciting new content to the game after the battle royale saw a slight dip in popularity towards the end of last season.

Luckily for Respawn, the brand-new Legend Vantage, overhauled Kings Canyon map, and huge Level Cap increase has been a massive hit with the fans, despite players finding bugs and glitches.

The new content has been so appealing that the game has even reached a new all-time peak player count on Steam, showing just how popular Apex Legends Season 14 is.

As of August 10, 2022, Apex Legends has a peak of 510,286 concurrent players, which is the highest it has ever been.

Although it’s only Steam‘s player count, this still shows just how popular the new Season of Apex Legends currently is.

Of course, the numbers are likely to decrease after launch week, but this is still impressive, especially as it shows that the game’s popularity is actually increasing despite being in its fourteenth season.

As Respawn continue to update and introduce new exciting content to the game, the player count will likely continue to rise, especially when players are now guaranteed an Heirloom.
