343 Industries has just conducted a new live broadcast for the community, telling what Halo Infinite is waiting for in the January update (CU29) and further. Let’s start with the update that comes out on January 30 and includes many interesting elements.
During the broadcast, we saw some items for customization, including the free nucleus of the Mark IV armor (which will simply appear in the arsenal of players) and three helmets from the Halo series: KAI-125, Riz-028 and Vannak-134. Also will appear overhead nuclei.
We learned that 343 Industries decided to rest on the system of operations presented in the fifth season. The first in 2024 will be "Spirit of fire", which also starts on January 30, and two more operations during the season will follow it. IN "The spirit of fire" There will be many items complementing the nuclear of the armor Mark IV.
The second operation will be with aesthetics "Viral machine", And followed by an operation with a focus on soils.
There will also be a new card – a symmetrical arena called Illusion.
Forge lovers will receive a Covenant palette with more than 70 thematic objects, including elements of structure, VFX, decolleys and much more. Players will also be able to configure the colors and materials of some biomes and decoratives.
Of course, it will not do without updating the quality of life, correcting errors and improvements to AI tools. More information will be published in the coming days.
In future updates, we will also see a palette of objects for aliens (the name is not yet final) and a palette of flood objects. They will not appear on January 30.
At the end of this year, 343 plans to create a function similar to Match Composer, which will allow developers to add much more content, without hiding it and without forcing the players to scroll through a long list.
At some point this year, 343 will also introduce an Anti-Cheat anti-cheat in the game to combat cheating.
And the last, but no less important: 343 announced that she refuses seasons. Updates will be timed to operations, and there will be no more "Seasons" With special seasonal passes. In fact, the January renewal will not be called "season", but just Cu29, or Content Update 29.
Speaking about the future of the franchise, we learned that although 343 has a special team working on Halo Infinite support, there are other teams, "accelerating to the future and working on completely new projects".
