A new Infinite Halo leak shed light on the rumored battle royale mode for the game. Since the game’s release on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC, 343 Industries has been working on a battle royale mode, or at least something similar. . How do we know? Well, because the game files reveal as much. And with each update more files are added that add to these files.
The latest seem to reveal some details about the mode. For one thing, players will start with an initial loadout as soon as matches start. In other words, it won’t be like Fortnite where players have to scramble like mad to find weapons once they land from the Battle Bus jump. Like Fortnite though, players will be able to control their Drop Pod, which is where they land.

As of press time, neither 343 Industries nor Xbox have commented on this potential leak and the speculation it has created. This is unlikely to change for a variety of reasons, but if it does, we’ll be sure to update the story accordingly.
Infinite Halo is available through Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X and PC. Although multiplayer is currently free, the campaign still comes at a steep price, unless you have Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the campaign and the rest of the game can also be accessed at no additional cost.
“Infinite Halo is the best Halo game that 343 Industries has created so far,” reads the opening of our opinion From the game. “It’s a sentence I was hoping to write when Infinite Halo was first announced back in 2018, and while it took longer than expected for the game to arrive, 343 really did a terrific job on all fronts this time around after the much-maligned 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 what we’ve been waiting for.”
