A fresh leak has made the co-op beta’s gameplay available.
The campaign co-op for Halo Infinite won’t be here for much longer, but thanks to a recent leak, we can already see how it will function.
One player, known as Foxie117, appears to have released this footage from the Halo Infinite co-op beta test that is now taking place for Halo Insiders. Foxie117 submitted three films on YouTube after being discovered by a user on r/ GamingLeaksAndRumours who is too rude to mention directly. These movies weren’t discovered by the public until three weeks later.
It’s easy to understand why r/HaloLeaks later confirmed that to be real. Everything seems to be working well as it shows off the first mission of Halo Infinite’s online co-op mode, open-world exploring, and weapons training.
It’s taken a while to get here
The lack of campaign co-op during Halo Infinite’s December release left many people unhappy. Each mainstream entry has had it ever since Halo: Combat Evolved. Halo Infinite’s multiplayer offers a tonne of activities in the interim, but it’s not the same.
Here, it’s important to manage expectations. This leak provides a scant glimpse of the co-op gameplay, and because it’s not the final build, more polish will probably be needed before release. But if the leaked video is any indication, game developer 343 Industries will provide exactly what players want. I’m eager to jump in with a buddy.
Originally scheduled to debut with the significant Halo Infinite update that introduced Season 2, campaign co-op was ultimately postponed by developer 343 Industries. Online co-op is now aiming for an August release, while those interested in a local two-player option must wait until November. Halo fans have lots to look forward to, even though it’s later than we’d hoped.
