Halo Infinite Season 2 has its first proper trailer, and the Lone Wolves season is looking pretty good ahead of its May 3 launch.
Developer 343 Industries released the short trailer earlier today. The trailer’s description promises “new maps, new modes, themed limited-time events, and an all-new battle pass that never expires.” This joins the few 343 plans detailed previously, as well as the changes the studio is planning (opens in a new tab) in response to comments from Season 1.
Season 2’s free track, for example, will offer “more customization content than Season 1’s,” says 343. The premium battle pass, meanwhile, will grant up to 1000 CR, and the ultimate rewards will be “higher value” cosmetics, including visors, shaders, and stances, with no mundane emblems or backgrounds cluttering the rewards stream. For reference, the first five weeks of Ultimate Rewards for Season 2 will be Sentry Stance, Battleship Haze MA40 AR Coating, Alabaster Cognac Razorback Coating, Amber Yesterday Visor, and Spring Mountain Stance.
343 says it’s also working to make items easier to mix and match than the current kit setup allows, though the timeline for those improvements is still unclear. Additionally, a career progression system that would exist “separately from the battle pass” as another account-based objective is currently “in the design stage.” However, 343 doesn’t have a launch date for Career Progression because the studio “wants to nail it out the door and it’s going to take a while.”
This follows on from another blog post (opens in a new tab) outlining Season 2 playlists and other multiplayer changes. Catalyst and Breaker, the new Arena and BTB maps respectively, will be added on day one, for example, and King of the Hill and Attrition will be added to multiple playlists, including Quick Play.
With tangible crumbs of Season 2 finally available, many Halo Infinite players are looking forward to the game’s pending updates, even though they’re still months away. Like 343 himself put it last week“the community is just running out of patience” after a long content drought, so the new season can’t come soon enough.
A the datamined Halo Infinite mode apparently called Last Spartan Standing It does look like a battle royale.
