The multiplayer feature in Halo Infinite has just recently gone live, but committed modders have already built some stunning new vehicles.
Halo Infinite modders are already introducing new vehicles to the multiplayer version of the first-person shooter despite the recent release. 343 Industries’ newest entry in the beloved sci-fi franchise will arrive on December 8 after a rough development and many delays. In commemoration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary, Halo Infinite’s multiplayer was made available for free on November 15.
The long-running Halo Series is a first-person shooter standard, and its enduring popularity has spawned a slew of fan-made mods over the years. While some producers may prohibit gamers from tinkering with their games, the franchise’s makers have actively aided the modding community by providing unique mod tools. The Master Chief Collection, a 343 Industries remastered anthology, contains built-in mod support, allowing players to upload and manage various modifications quickly. Players have been able to add their vehicles, weaponry, game modes, and maps to various Halo games because of this mechanism. Such hacking frequently yields incredibly imaginative improvements, such as Halo 3’s Zombies Game mod, which recreates the Call of Duty series’ cooperative wave-based horde mode.
According to PC Gamer, many modders are already making their tweaks to Halo Infinite’s free-to-play multiplayer mode. The Tank Hog, an unstoppable vehicle that combines the mobility of the Warthog with the brute firepower of the Scorpion, was recently revealed by YouTuber Gamecheat13. The Tank Hog was created by modders in the past, with iterations appearing in Halo: Reach and Halo 4, but gamers can now enjoy its use in the franchise’s latest installment. Meanwhile, YouTuber RejectedShotgun has converted the franchise’s gigantic Pelican dropship into a fully functional flying vehicle, which is usually just a part of the scenery. The flying fortress currently has no weapons or special powers. It can, however, fly and land convincingly, and managing the Pelican is frequently the first chore for modders in any new Halo game.
While the early release of Halo Infinite multiplayer allowed modders to get a head start on their projects, it caused specific official material to be delayed. The single-player version of the game will be released on December 8. However, Halo Infinite‘s Forge and co-op modes will not be available until 2022. Season 2 will see the return of the series’ cooperative campaign mode, while Season 3 will see the return of the series’ renowned Forge level editor mode. Season 1 has been prolonged to May 2022 due to multiplayer’s early release, which would significantly delay these much-anticipated features.
The multiplayer feature in Halo Infinite has only been out for a week, but modders have already made significant changes to the game. This is undoubtedly due to the game’s resemblance to previous Halo games, which would make it much easier for veteran modders to work with the most current installment. The passion of the Halo modding community, on the other hand, is a significant influence, with fans’ love for Halo coming through with each incredible success.
Halo Infinite will be released for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on December 8, 2021. The multiplayer mode for Halo Infinite is now available.
