Further information about Halo Infinite has been revealed during the Xbox Showcase at E3 2021—including a release this holiday season.

This time around, Halo fans won't be alone in their fight to keep humanity safe. The plan to capture Cortana and delete her has ultimately failed, causing the replacement AI to stick around. Now, they have to discover what went wrong.

Oh, and multiplayer will be a thing—with elements long-missed from the classic Halo games in the franchise's past including the grappling hook.

Here's when players can suit up in their Spartan gear and hit the arena.

Halo Infinite Coming Holiday 2021

Halo fans will be able to enjoy Halo Infinite this holiday season 2021. Both its free-to-play multiplayer mode and story campaign chapter will release around the same time, meaning players won't have to wait to play either of their favorite parts of the franchise. It will be available on Xbox Game Pass on day one.

Multiplayer will feature a marked return to form for the franchise. One of the most notable abilities seen in the gameplay footage was the grappling hook—liberally used to grab items on the field, swing over enemies, and hijack airborne vehicles with ease.
