Halo: Infinite is one of the most highly-anticipated games coming out in 2021, and some new leaks have emerged which seemingly reveal its official release date on PC and Xbox.
Halo fans have been eagerly awaiting news on the highly-anticipated Halo: Infinite, which was scheduled to arrive sometime during November 2021. We recently got a close look at the game through some concept art and weapon artwork.
We were also treated to some new gameplay footage during E3 2021, and now players are wondering when exactly the game will arrive. Now, a new leak seems to have confirmed the release date for Halo: Infinite.
343 Industries confirmed that we’d see Halo: Infinite arrive in late 2021, and now leaker Tom Henderson has stated that the game should arrive at some point during the coming holidays.
“Halo: Infinite should release in Mid November,” Henderson wrote. Phil Spencer, head of the Xbox brand, recently confirmed it’s coming out during the holidays, but they’re still working on the exact date.
A mid-November release would fit within the 2-3 week window that he referred to. While initially set for a December 2020 release, the game’s arrival ended up being pushed back due to real-world events disturbing the development.
Shortly after the gameplay reveal in E3 2021, a possible release date of November 9 was seemingly confirmed but this turned out to be a typo, as that’s when Forza Horizon 5 is set to arrive.
While we still don’t have a hard date, this window provides us with a few hints. If the developers are planning for a Tuesday release, then the game will most likely arrive on November 16 or 23.
We’ll keep checking for any more Halo: Infinite leaks and reveals that become public. Once we discover something new, we’ll be sure to update you.

How to defeat Riot for Fortnite Season 7 Week 7 Quest
Here’s how you can quickly complete the Fortnite Week 7 Epic Quest to find and defeat the NPC Riot which will grant you some exciting rewards.
There are brand-new challenges to complete in Week 7 of Fortnite Season 7, and one of the Epic Quests requires you to defeat the NPC Riot. Here’s how you can find him and get this done.
One Epic Quest has you search for a Fortnite NPC Riot and then defeat him in battle. This character will put up a fight, so this guide will provide his location along with some tips for defeating him.
Where to find Riot in Fortnite Season 7
There are various NPCs scattered across Fortnite Island, and each one serves a different purpose, such as selling weapons or protecting the player. Riot will fire at you on sight, so be ready for a battle.
You can find this NPC on the west side of the Yellow Steel Bridge between Misty Meadow and Catty Corner. Make sure you collect some solid weapons and gear before going to battle against Fortnite Riot, as he will be hostile.
We’ve marked this location on the map below.
Simply take cover as much as possible by building structures or using your surroundings. Once he stops firing at you, you can take your opportunity to shoot him down. Luckily, he isn’t too difficult to bring down.
We recommend keeping a few shield potions on you just in case since the aim of Fortnite Riot is deadly. Once he’s down, you’ll be able to loot him for gear, and the game will reward you with 30,000 XP, so it is definitely worth it to take the time to find Fortnite Riot and defeat the NPC.

How to play Battlefield 2042 Open Beta
Now that Battlefield 2042 has been officially revealed, here’s how you can play the upcoming massive-scale multiplayer experience’s open beta.
Battlefield 2042 is confirmed to have an Open Beta, allowing players to get a taste of the massive battles ahead of its official launch. Here’s how you can play the Open Beta and access it early.
Now that the wait is over and Battlefield 2042 has officially been revealed, it’s time to start wondering when you can get your hands on the next installment of the blockbuster franchise.
The game is on the slate for an October 22, 2021 launch, but DICE also has plans for an Open Beta ahead of its launch. With the latest showcase at EA Play Live, the developers revealed a more specific time for when players can get their hands on the Beta and subsequently the new Specialists, massive maps, and new game modes.
Here’s everything we know about Battlefield 2042’s Open Beta.
How to access Battlefield 2042 Open Beta
As well as announcing Battlefield Portal, during Battlefield 2042’s showcase for EA Play Live on July 22, DICE officially announced that players can expect the Open Beta in September of this year.
Battlefield V’s beta happened a month before release, with those who preordered the game getting two days of early access. Battlefield 2042 is expected to follow the same model, with the developers confirming that those who preorder the game will be able to play first.
Battlefield 2042 is on the slate for October 22, and although it isn’t a pinpoint date, we can officially expect the Open Beta to drop in September 2021.
If you’ve preordered the game, you’ll get early access to a Closed Beta, likely a couple of days ahead of the Open Beta’s launch. If you haven’t preordered the game, don’t worry, as you won’t have to spend a penny to play the Open Beta. It will likely appear on your platform of choice’s store as a free download.
There is also no confirmation if the Open Beta will be available for both those playing the Xbox One/PS4 and Xbox Series X/PS5 editions.
Stay tuned to Charlie INTEL and @BravoINTEL for all updates on Battlefield 2042.

Seer’s abilities discussed at EA Play for Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence
Apex Legends upcoming Season 10 will feature a brand new Legend called “Seer,” who may even give Bloodhound a run for his money.
Apex Legends revealed further details on Season 10: Emergence at EA Play recently, giving players an insight into how the new Legend Seer will operate.
Season 9: Legacy has been a great success for Respawn, introducing a brand new way to play the battle royale with Arenas and expanding the roster with arguably the most balanced Legend they have introduced since the launch of Seasons, Valkyrie.
As well as enjoying the current event, Thrillseekers, which saw a new Arena’s map enter their game, players have also been getting their first details on Season 10: Emergence, especially the new Legend, Seer.
On July 22, EA held their annual showcase event, EA Play Live. As well as a variety of their games being showcased, such as Battlefield and Fifa, Apex Legends used this event to reveal the first official Apex Legends Season 10 trailer.
Although this wasn’t a gameplay trailer, it still provided a load of hints and details concerning Apex Legends’ new character Seer, including how his abilities will work.
As well as this, after the trailer had finished, one of Respawn’s developers provided even more information on Seer, where fans were given an explanation of his Passive, Tactical, and Ultimate abilities.
Apex Legends Seer abilities
Much like Bloodhound, Seer is a Recon Legend who will be mainly focused on gaining intel on enemies with a stealthy playstyle. Seer’s kit is all about tracking the opposition, but it seems the abilities are much more pinpoint than Bloodhound’s scan.
Apex Legends Seer: Passive ability
Seer will gain access to a heartbeat sensor when aiming down sights and be able to track nearby enemies. Although there is currently no representation of this in-game, perhaps players can expect something similar to Call of Duty’s famous Heartbeat Sensor tactical equipment.
After sensing an enemy’s heartbeat, Seers tactical ability will allow him to send out his Moth Drones to track them down and reveal their position.
Finally, Seer’s Ultimate ability will send out a heap of drones that will combine to create a sphere. Seer will be able to sense and track anyone who is moving fast within this sphere, creating an interesting gameplay mechanic, which may cause teams to alter their movements in order to stay undetected.
Although we don’t currently have any official gameplay of these abilities, the reveal trailer and descriptions of the abilities do a great job at giving players an idea of how Seer will work in-game.
Make sure to check back on this page as more information is released regarding Seer and Season 10, as it seems on July 25, we will be getting our first gameplay trailer.
