In the whirlwind of enthusiasm for Halo Infinite, a news has leaked in the last few hours that could make a part of the game community unhappy, in fact we are talking about the function co-op for the campaign and the Forge (or Forge) that will be released over the next few months in stages, following the path of the seasons and not on launch day.
We are talking about two modes not extremely played or used in the history of the series, but which are nonetheless historical components of every Halo, especially in the fifth chapter. Not seeing them on day one can therefore sadden longtime fans, but who don’t necessarily have to be too downhearted because these will be released according to a fixed lineup.
As you can see from the tweet taken from Nibel, the cooperative playable campaign with a friend should arrive in the season 2, ie about 3 months after the official launch of the game, while the Forge is expected for 6 months later, with the season 3. The release date from Halo Infinite It will also be revealed very soon, and this is great news for all fans.
Below we leave you the aforementioned tweet of Nibel:

But what are we talking about when we mention co-op mode and the Forge in Halo, and especially in Infinite halo? The possibility of playing the entire adventure in the company of a friend was a possibility offered from the very first Halo Combat Evolved and allowed a second player to join (initially exclusively via shared screen locally) in the battles of their partner impersonating a second copy of Master Chief The protagonist of the main trilogy.
With the advent of the internet connection it became possible to help each other even online and support your friend even from a distance. Halo 3 in particular he did this mode a real game feature, since for the second player a specific character was reserved and with a strength comparable to the good old Chief, let’s talk about theArbiter. As a result, it’s no mystery that this feature has always been important to fans.
The Forge mode has become famous mainly thanks to Halo 3, and it is a fairly powerful tool which allows you to build entire multiplayer maps, or even completely out of your mind and far from the canons of Halo modes (like poison ball with the Spartans).
This tool isn’t the most used component of the entire series, but it did grant fans the ability to create own maps And custom modes. The quality of such creations is very variable, however, there are many amateur scenarios that are used today by 343 Industries as official maps of the Halo Master Chief Collection along with those originally created by the team. In short, we will have to wait a few more months for these contents for Halo Infinite, but we think it might be worth it if these are of sufficient quality and the seasons are released with the right amount of additional content beyond the modes.
