Halo Infinite leaks reveal key details about potential battle royale

While it has been rumored for some time now, new Halo Infinite leaks are suggesting we could be seeing a battle royale mode for the game as early as November.

Halo Infinite was a success when it launched back in November 2021. However, fast forward to the present, and the game is unable to sustain the hype, as there has been a severe lack of content throughout its first season.

With Halo Infinite Season 2 on the way, perhaps this will increase the FPS game’s popularity once more, especially when coupled with new leaks suggesting there could be a battle royale mode on the way.

Battle royale games have been dominating the multiplayer shooter scene for years now, with the likes of Warzone, Fortnite, and more recently, Apex Legends commanding the scene with the likes of Dr Disrespect and NICKMERCS investing their time into the games.

Unfortunately, this has left Halo Infinite high and dry, unable to compete with the popularity of battle royale games.

Having said that, the devs over at 343 Industries may have been working on a BR mode all along, as recent leaks reveal new details about a Halo Infinite battle royale.

During a podcast with Rand al Thor 19 called The Xbox Two, WindowsCentral journalist Jez Corden shared information on Halo Infinite’s battle royale mode, stating that it “has been in development for two years,” and could be seen as early as Season 3.

Jez Corden claims that the devs are testing a “PVP, PVE kind of thing” that isn’t actually a “traditional battle royale.” Further, he also shares that it’s “duos and trios…and it has shrinking circles, like a battle royale, and it sort of forces you to move around the map…and there’s like different objectives and stuff like that.”

Jez Corden has also heard that the mode could also have “respawn tickets,” much like in all of the popular battle royale modes. So, it seems 343 Industries are working on a new mode with aspects from the battle royale genre and also single-player elements, which Jez also states.

One thing Jez Corden makes clear is to take this information with a pinch of salt, as it’s all just rumors, speculation, and leaks. Also, he also states that it’s “hard to definitively leak all of this stuff,” as some of it could be “leftover code.”

However, one thing is certain, and that is that 343 Industries have been working on their version of a battle royale mode for two years now, so you’d expect this mode to be dropping in the future.

With Season 2 on the horizon, fans have been pretty upset to see that it will last 6 months, meaning that Season 3 won’t be dropping until November. Further, Jez Corden even said that the battle royale may not even arrive until Season 4, which is a long way out.

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.
