E3 2018: Halo Infinite revealed, but what is it?

Halo Infinite was revealed at the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing with a thrilling engine demo that provides a glimpse into the future of the Halo franchise, leading it into new and unexpected directions.

"With Halo Infinite we will join Master Chief on his greatest adventure yet to save humanity", said Phil Spencer as he took the stage. As four tired-looking marines limp along a beach featuring broken Halo gates, the brief tease concludes with a shot of Master Chief holding his iconic helmet at his waist before driving off into the sunset on a Warthog.

You can check out the trailer below, and see if it entices you. The game releases with special enhancements for Xbox One X. The lack of a number in the title and the name-drop of a new engine - dubbed "Slipspace" - also suggest this is no ordinary follow-up.

In Halo Infinite, players won't alternate between playing as the Master Chief and others but instead will continue his saga after the events of Halo 5. You'll have to wait a bit longer, Halo fans. It was the premiere trailer, offering a cinematic look at an Earth-like planet and a certain ring we've all come to know and love.

Dan Casey is the senior editor of Nerdist and the author of books about Star Wars and the Avengers.
