Microsoft has finally revealed gameplay footage of its upcoming flagship title Halo Infinite, running 60 frames per second at 4K resolution on the Xbox Series X. The title reintroduces players to Master Chief after being found suspended in space during the E3 2019 trailer. The trailer below picks up with Master Chief and the Pilot being shot down by anti-aircraft guns and crash landing on the ring, “where Chief sets out to disable the AA guns so they can continue their mission. “

The gameplay trailer below also features campaign footage from later on in Halo Infinite, where various weapons, new and old, are explored. Weapons such as the classic MA40 assault rifle to the new high-precision VK78 Commando are shown throughout. Also new to Halo is the Grappleshot, which allows Chief to close the distance between enemies and pull objects directly to him. It also allows him to move around the new, expansive, open-world map.

Halo Infinite is the most ambitious Halo game ever made, with an environment several times larger than the last two Halo games combined,” the game’s Marketing Lead Michael Wolf said in a blog post. “Players can explore an expansive landscape filled with sprawling natural wonder, mystery, and a story that welcomes those new to the franchise as well as continues the Master Chief’s saga for our most dedicated fans.”

343 Industries says the game’s Slipspace Engine coupled with the horsepower of the Xbox Series X will allow the game to run 60fps at 4K resolution. However, the engine will also scale the title to existing platforms like “the Xbox One family of devices as well as Windows 10 and Steam.”

Halo Infinite will be available for the aforementioned platforms Holiday 2020 and will be playable Day One for Xbox Game Pass members.

In other gaming news, Microsoft has discontinued the Xbox One X and Xbox One S Digital Edition.
