It doesn’t take long for Halo Infinite’s co-op campaign to finally arrive, but thanks to a new leak, we have a clear picture of how it will play out.
With a co-op beta test of Halo Infinite currently underway for Halo Insiders, a participant known as Foxie117 apparently leaked these images from this test earlier. Seen by a user too rude to name directly on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours (opens in new tab)Foxie117 posted three videos on YouTube, which were only widely circulated three weeks later.
This has since been verified as authentic by r/HaloLeaks, and it’s not hard to see why. Featuring online co-op gameplay for Halo Infinite’s opening mission, open-world exploration, and weapons drills, everything seems to be running smoothly. You can find them at Foxie117’s YouTube channel (opens in new tab)but since there’s a good chance these videos will be removed later, we’ve also included screenshots below.
It’s been a long time
Many were disappointed that Halo Infinite didn’t release with the co-op campaign in December. Since Halo: Combat Evolved, every mainline entry has always included it. In the meantime, there’s a lot to do in Halo Infinite’s multiplayer, but it’s not the same.
It’s worth keeping expectations in check here. This leak offers a limited view of co-op gameplay and as it’s not the finished version, finer tweaks are likely needed before release. Still, if this leaked footage is anything to go by, developer 343 Industries will deliver exactly what gamers are looking for. I can’t wait to dive with a friend.
Campaign co-op was previously expected to arrive alongside the big Halo Infinite update that kicked off Season 2, though developer 343 Industries delayed this feature. Online co-op is currently targeting an August launch, but anyone looking for a two-player local option will have to wait until November. While it’s later than we expected, I dare say Halo fans have a lot to look forward to this summer.
