Hi everyone, Spartan here with site poll #83.
Last time we talked about who the AI in the Halo Infinite teaser could be, with some great detailed responses from Twinreaper and I_Make_Big_Boom. Click here to view the last poll, #82.
Will Halo Infinite be open-world?
An open-world Halo game is something I never even considered up until recently. With 343 showing off their brand new Slipsace gaming engine, the vast nature-filled Halo ring suggested to many people that Halo Infinite may be open-world. Imagine that. Chief traversing another ring he's never stepped foot on before. That's how things are really like if you read the books, especially Halo: The Flood which shows you what Halo: Combat Evolved was really like for John. It would take a lot of work, and considering how long 343 are spending on Halo Infinite, it makes an open-world game so much more believable. It would be a new experience for Halo, and one I doubt can bring negative consequences. Hostile animals, stranded marines, enemy strongholds. The possibilities are interesting. Maybe we gotta travel to the next mission. Think Halo 3: ODST, but even far better. Maybe you could even have an online open-world experience where you encounter other players, not sure how that would link with a campaign though if the players aren't in your party before you start. Just like how you find other live racers pop up in your map on Forza Horizon. A lot could be done, just needs to be done right.
Would you all like Halo Infinite to be open-world? Do you think it will be? Why?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts,
