Is Halo Infinite open world?

After the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase at E3 2021, we now know a lot about Halo Infinite's multiplayer and upcoming beta playtests, but how about its campaign? Here's the latest on whether or not Halo Infinite will feature an open world for players to explore.

Is Halo Infinite Open World?

A major point of emphasis that 343 Industries has stressed about so far with Halo Infinite is that although it will once again be fielding its staple campaign and multiplayer game modes, both experiences will look and feel pretty different from what the Halo team has put out in the past.

In addition to Halo Infinite's multiplayer mode being set to be completely free-to-play, 343 has confirmed that its story mode will feature a semi-open world design.

Despite Master Chief returning to his roots fighting once again on foreign alien ring floating in the middle of space, it appears that this backdrop will be featured throughout the campaign of Halo Infinite and not just a single level.

Open world designs in story modes simply feel bigger and more immersive than segmented levels, as well as give players the freedom in how they approach the game's missions and combat encounters.

Couple this with the glimpses that Halo Infinite's enemy factions will show resemblances closer to those of the original trilogy, perhaps 343's latest game could live up the hype of its beloved series' earlier installments.
