What you need to know

  • Halo Community Manager John Junyszek confirmed on Twitter that Halo Infinite will have a Challenges system for its progression.
  • This system will likely allow players to boost their in-game progression by completing PvP and PvE challenges, just like you currently can in the Master Chief Collection.
  • There will also be "Swaps," which sound like a tool you can use to rotate out challenges you don't like for ones that you do. These will be available through in-game and promotional methods, among others.

According to a Tweet made by 343 Industries' Halo Community Manager John Junyszek, Halo Infinite will feature a Challenges system for its progression. If this system is anything like the one that's currently in place for the Master Chief Collection, players will be able to complete a variety of different PvE and PvP challenges in order to boost their progress. Additionally, Junyszek also noted that some challenges will also unlock some items outright, which may indicate that some items will be exclusively available through achievements akin to the older Halo games.

Something interesting about the Tweet is that it mentions "Swaps," which are described as tools that let you change challenges you don't like. These Swaps will be available through in-game and promotional means according to Junyszek, although it sounds like there may be other methods of obtaining them as well.

In any event, the fact that challenges are going to be in Halo Infinite is great news — which, frankly, the game needs right now.

Halo Infinite is expected to launch in 2021 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One family of consoles, and Windows 10 PCs. In the meantime, we highly recommend checking out the Master Chief Collection, which offers updated and overhauled versions of all of the pre-Xbox One Halo shooter games for a killer price.
