Halo Infinite fans can already enjoy the campaign and multiplayer mode for Halo Infinite, but there’s word of even more coming to the title.

A major update, coming on December 14, will add Slayer, Fiesta, Free-For-All, and Tactical Slayer (SWAT) playlists to the free-to-play portion of the game.

That’s right, a lot more ways to team up or do your own thing are coming to the latest Halo game in just a few days.

New modes coming to Halo Infinite this month

This has been public information for a couple of days now, but most likely got a bit overlooked because of all the commotion surrounding The Game Awards.

But, yes, starting with the 14th of December, all of the above-mentioned modes will become available to all Halo Infinite players.

Slayer is going to be a bit basic right at the start, however, a lot more features will be added over time. 343 Industries justified this by stating that Slayer variants simply weren’t ready in time for the holidays.

But we shouldn’t worry, as surely fresh content is right around the corner, and the beginning of 2022 will most likely bring plenty more to the table.

The upcoming update will also include adjustments to challenges, including removing some particularly frustrating mode-specific ones, reducing some requirements for others, and making the weekly ultimate challenge less intensive.

This announcement also brought forth new efforts being made in the field of experience gain, which will become more performance-based.

Another important more made via the same post states that the team was aware of server issues that occur when playing Big Team Battle (BTB).

Developers are investigating this problem, as well as others that have been reported during Ranked play, and will release patches as soon as they come up with fixes.

Until then, all we can do is keep enjoying our favorite new title and hope that the new modes that are coming will be just as exciting as we expected them to be.
