What you need to know

  • A new live action trailer for Halo Infinite, "Unspoken," focuses on the two Marines that first captured Covenant energy shields.
  • The trailer recounts the story of how only one of them made it back alive.
  • Halo Infinite is slated to be available on Dec. 8, 2021.

Halo Infinite is on the way, with 343 Industries sharing a new live action trailer that isn't about some huge aspect of the campaign or multiplayer. Instead, this ad, titled "Unspoken," instead shares the story of two Marines who helped recover the Covenant technology that led to the development of the UNSC's Spartan shield technology. You can take a look at the trailer below.

It's a somber ad, with a ton that brings to the mind the "Believe" trailers for Halo 3. It's also completely different than most of the trailers for Halo Infinite so far, which have focused on the action of playing as Master Chief or the threat of the Banished War Chief Escharum, one of many in a long list of enemies in Halo Infinite.

Halo Infinite is currently scheduled to launch on Dec. 8, 2021 for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One and PC. Like all Xbox first-party games, it'll also launch day one into Xbox Game Pass, though the multiplayer is completely free-to-play.
