Following the reveal of Halo Infinite's multiplayer gameplay during the Xbox E3 2021 show, 343 Industries released a blog post that reveals that Halo Infinite will feature AI-controlled bots. These will be able to be used for training purposes in special training modes, and can also fill in for missing player slots during Custom Game matches.

Considering bots provide numerous benefits and have been a staple feature of many shooters for years, it's great to see Halo officially get them for the first time too. Hopefully the bots will be well-programmed and will work well when the game launches without any issues.

What do you think of the news that Halo Infinite will feature bots? What did you think of Halo Infinite's showing at E3 2021 overall? Let us know in the comments. We think it looks like it's going to be one of the best Xbox games ever, and we can't wait to play it when it comes to Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One consoles, and Windows 10 (and Windows 11) PCs later this year. You can preorder the game now for $60, but keep in mind that if you're only interested in the multiplayer, it will be completely free.
