Ever since halo 2 On the original Xbox, many players (myself included) enjoyed these zombie-inspired competitive modes games. And now finally Hello infinitythe latest, somewhat battered entry in the franchise, adds its own take on this popular game mode in the upcoming Season 4 update.
Hello infinity was released in December 2021 and received rave reviews, largely thanks to its fantastic open-world campaign. The multiplayer mode wasn’t well received, however, as fans were angered by long seasons that often brought very little new content. And some recent updates While they’ve helped improve things by adding more features, modes, and maps, the game still lacks some classic elements gloriole games from before. For example, there was no official infection mode, also known as “zombies mode”. But that will change next week with season four.
On June 14, after tease it in May, 343 released a new trailer Announcing the arrival of Hello infinityis its own zombie mode. And on Thursday The company posted a blog We go into more detail about this new mode, how it works, and why the zombies look like weird neon-covered demons.
Hello infinityexplains the new Zombies mode
According to 343, in this new season of Hello infinity, an alien AI – Iratus – has taken control of the systems of a UNSC facility and is now using her powers to manipulate some ancient Spartan armor. That’s why this time the “zombies” are covered with red glowing neon patterns, since it’s the digital infection of Iratus that spreads and controls the Spartans. A bit strange, but past infection modes are present gloriole Games have changed the appearance of the infected fighters, with some games using basic Spartan models and others creating Flood-like versions of players.
How this mode will play out if you’ve enjoyed zombie-inspired modes for hours in the past gloriole games, you will probably be familiar with these rules.
- Infection is played in rounds and in each round one team tries to infect the other team by killing them. When an infected player kills a survivor, they join the Horde.
- At the start of each round, the game randomly selects a few players to start as infected players. All others are survivors.
- Survivors start with limited supplies and weapons. So you have to explore the map to find more ammo and better weapons to survive the digital zombies.
- In order for survivors to win, they must outlive the zombies for a certain amount of time. The infected players won’t win until all other survivors are killed and turned into fellow zombies. When there is only one survivor left, they gain infinite ammo and an overshield. However, they are also marked on the map by an on-screen indicator, making hiding them impossible.
And that’s it! Relatively easy, but a lot of fun. I probably spent hundreds of hours alone in that game mode back then halo 2 And Halo 3 Days Xbox Live. I remember countless hours halo 2 Zombies, back when the mode was an unofficial custom creation and you had to pause the game after you died to switch teams and join the infected. It was clunky, but still great fun. Later, Halo 3 and other gloriole Games made the style of play official, and it became one of the most popular ways to play these classic Bungie-developed entries.
It sure took a while for this popular mode to finally make its debut Hello infinity, but I’m glad it’s here. I assume I’ll boot up infinity Check out this new edition of the classic soon.
Interesting, in a separate Xbox Wire postAccording to 343, it is considering officially adding more popular custom fan modes to the game in the future. That’s nice and that gives me hope Hello infinity will continue to get bigger and better. But if not, then at least we have a Zombies mode.
