On top of that, it is claimed that the mode will have tiered loot drops like most battle royale modes and will be 60 players unlike most battle royale modes which go for 100 or something. close. Where the rumors get particularly interesting is when they claim that the map will, at least partially, be made up of OG maps from the series’ past.

Unfortunately, that’s the extent of the information provided about the game’s battle royale mode. Of course, what’s here should be taken with a grain of salt because not only is everything here unofficial, but even if it’s is correct, it is subject to change.

“Infinite Halo is the best Halo game 343 Industries has made so far,” reads the opening of our review of the game. “That’s a line I was hoping to write when Infinite Halo was first announced in 2018, and while it took longer than expected for the game to arrive, 343 really did a great job on all fronts this time around after the bashing Halo 5: Guardians. In its campaign and multiplayer offerings, Infinite Halo finds a way to move the franchise forward in new and meaningful ways while staying true to what Halo was when it hit the scene 20 years ago. The end product is a game that simultaneously soaks up nostalgia while feeling like the next generation of Halo that we expected.
