Following the official release of Halo Infinite, players continue to actively discover new aspects about the game. Given the semi-open world nature of the map and missions, Halo Infinite is home to a lot of additional content for players to encounter that goes well beyond the core content prominently presented. However, this most recent discovery involves one of the most iconic characters in the franchise.
Similar to many other big name franchises in the gaming industry, Halo is known to have several Easter Eggs pop up from time to time in each new installment. Many of these Easter Eggs relate rather closely to the Halo community. Take for example, the numerous Red vs. Blue references in Halo Infinite. When it comes to Halo Infinite, a significant portion of the hidden content relates back to other games in the franchise.
A Reddit user named Lord_Greedyy came upon a doll shaped like the Arbiter from Halo 2. The Arbiter was a playable character within Halo 2 who served as a former elite within the Covenant. The playable nature of the Arbiter added additional depth in terms of the conflict between the UNSC and the Covenant. As such, the Arbiter has become an incredibly popular character within Halo lore.
In addition to the Arbiter, dolls of Cortana, the Master Chief, and other Halo characters have been scattered all around Halo Infinite’s open world. With this being the first entry in the Halo series to feature open world gameplay, it’s nice to see that there’s a fair amount of secrets for player’s to locate outside of the story missions and side content.
It’s not just amazing to see how much content there is for Halo Infinite players at launch, but also how much upcoming content is in the works. For instance, as of next week, Halo Infinite will feature Slayer playlists for multiplayer users who have been wanting a more streamlined approach to picking multiplayer modes and completing weekly challenges.
It will be interesting to see what the future holds for Halo Infinite moving forward. Many players are still wondering about Halo Infinite’s take on Forge mode, which still has yet to be released. It’s been nearly six years since an offical, mainline Halo installment was released, so to have a series staple like Forge mode be introduced to Halo Infinite will be sure to make plenty of fans excited. Not to mention the plethora of custom multiplayer maps that will inevitably release as a result. Regardless, easter eggs like the Arbiter doll show that a lot of love has gone into crafting the game.
Halo Infinite‘s campaign is now available for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
