Announced at gamescom 2021, Halo Infinite will arrive on Xbox consoles and PC December 8 after various Infinite-themed limited edition accessories and a console launch on November 15.
The trailer revealing the Halo Infinite Season 1 multiplayer cinematic intro features Spartan Commander Agryna, the Spartan in charge of training Spartan-IV recruits. The video gives a hint at her backstory, showing her rescue by a Spartan and her decision to become one herself.
Coming November 15, is a limited edition Halo Infinite Xbox Series X that comes packaged with a matching controller, but I will let Microsoft describe it in full:
This design was inspired by the expansive Halo universe and is wrapped with dark metallic paneling accented by iridium gold. Above the armor there is a custom star pattern as seen from the surface of Zeta Halo that extends to the top of the console and onto the fan. Below the stars, the top vent is accented in Cortana-themed blue. To top it off, the console powers on and off with custom Halo-themed sounds. The controller included in the bundle features a matching design on the front, an iridium gold 20-year mark on the back, as well as side-and-back grips to accommodate all play styles.
This console sounds and looks awesome, and it is a far cry from some of the more tacky limited edition designs of yesteryear. The Halo Infinite Limited Edition Xbox Series X is available for pre-order now (already out of stock) and will cost buyers a hefty $549.99.
Alongside this limited edition console comes a Master Chief themed Elite Series 2 controller that has the same iconic color scheme as Spartan John 117 himself.
Ready for any mission with a custom design inspired by the Master Chief’s iconic armor, this controller features a battle-worn, matte metallic green with an iridium gold D-pad and comes with an arsenal of swappable components and a custom carrying case emblazoned with the iconic UNSC insignia. For that Spartan-like precision, use the custom thumbstick tension adjustment tool that you can even wear like a dog-tag so you’re always ready to fine-tune your combat experience. When you’re not using your controller, keep it powered up on the laser-etched charging dock or with the custom charging cable. And, when Halo Infinite releases, don’t forget to show off this one-of-a-kind design in multiplayer sessions with an exclusive Halo Elite controller weapon charm only available with the purchase of the Halo Infinite Elite controller.
The Halo Infinite Limited Edition Series 2 controller is also available for pre-order for $199.99.
Lastly, Xbox announced two Halo Infinite themed peripherals in the form of a Razer headset and a Seagate Game Drive for Xbox.
