It’s a demo Halo fans will never forget. In 2020, developer 343 Industries unveiled its latest version of the Halo franchise to the masses during one of Microsoft’s digital events. Halo Infinite’s gameplay debut received some positive feedback, but sparked an online firestorm and popularized discussion surrounding Craig The Brute, among other things. It’s been over a year since this demo was shown to fans, and a lot has changed ahead of the Halo Infinite campaign launch on December 8th.
Today’s video isn’t a full one-on-one replica of the 2020 footage, but a striking illustration of how the team improved on that earlier foundation, including the side-by-side cinematics and gameplay from both versions. Both demos play in the same part of the game and take place a few hours after the campaign begins as Master Chief battles through waves of The Banished to destroy anti-aircraft towers, all with the help of The Pilot and John’s new AI companion, The Gun. The 2021 demo takes a different path than the 2020 version, but both segments end with Chief doing what he does best and the now famous Escharum speech hits the game in a couple of weeks. Baring your fangs, Halo fans. This is just the beginning.
