Halo Infinite is one of 2021’s biggest games and the name Halo” still carries an unbelievable amount of weight and gravitas. Here are the consoles that Master Chief’s newest entry, in his long-running saga, will be coming to.

After settling for a bit more of a part-time role in Halo 5: Guardians, Master Chief is front and center of 343 Industries‘ Halo Infinite as he looks to make a huge impact on the next-gen race.

But some people don’t seem to be completely sure of which platforms you’ll be able to find everyone’s beloved Sci-Fi soldier. Here are the full details.

Halo Infinite platforms

The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X has welcomed us to a new generation of video games, producing graphics we never thought possible in vibrant, bouncing worlds.

But the nature of their cross-compatibility has also posed constant questions about every subsequent game release. People don’t seem to know which consoles any game is on now, and this appears to be the case with Halo Infinite.

So let’s clear up some of those issues now, here are the platforms that Halo Infinite will be available on at launch:

  • Xbox Series X
  • Xbox Series S
  • Xbox One
  • PC

This will be great news for Halo players that either doesn’t want to or haven’t been fortunate enough to upgrade to next-gen Xbox consoles just yet.

In the same way that Sony has made Spider-Man: Miles Morales and other big, upcoming AAA titles available on PS4 as well, it seems that Halo Infinite is receiving the same treatment. The game will obviously not run optimally on the Xbox One, but at least the option is there.

Due to the ongoing circumstances in the world, Halo Infinite’s release date has been pushed back from its original date of December 2020 to Fall 2021.

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.

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.

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.

Tactical ability

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.

Ultimate ability

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.

There are brand-new Quests to complete in Week 7 of Fortnite Season 7, and here’s how you can complete the Legendary challenge that requires you to mark an Alien Egg.

Week 7 of Fortnite Season 7 is here, and there are brand-new weekly challenges for you to complete so that you can earn XP and Battle Stars. These include tasks like stoking campfires and constructing Wooden Hatcheries.

One of this week’s Legendary Quests tasks you with finding and marking an Alien Egg. These aren’t found all over the map, so this guide will help you out by letting you know where to look.

Alien Egg locations in Fortnite Season 7

After the Alien invasion arrived, many changes came to Fortnite Island. Holly Hedges has been changed to Holly Hatchery, and it’s the area that you’ll need to visit for this Legendary Quest.

This location has changed into a farm for Alien Eggs in Season 7, and there’s a low gravity biome in the area. Head over there, and look for little green orbs that are sprouting out of the ground.

You can also check the southwest portion of the purple crater in the center of the map.

You only need to mark one Alien Egg so make your way to either one of these locations. After you come across one, you can mark it by pinging its location on your map. So use the mouse scroll, or the left D-pad button.

Once that’s done, you’ll earn a total of 30,000 XP. You can also complete the rest of the weekly challenges to earn some extra XP and Battle Stars.
