    Firefight, Forge AI, new armor, and more to come.

    343 Industries has revealed the first trailer and details for Halo Infinite Season 5. The new season, “Reckoning,” will begin on October 17 and feature several long-anticipated updates, modes, and more.

    343 and Microsoft initially released Halo Infinite in 2021. The game received critical acclaim yet was panned at launch for lacking features and modes. Over the last two years, 343 has slowly added more and more content through the game’s seasonal layout. The previous season began in June and will end in just a few weeks.

    According to 343 Industries, Season 5 will feature the following content:

    • Infect your Spartan and weapons with all-new Flood customization items.
    • Venture into crystal caves (watch out for those blamite crystals!) and ancient, mysterious stone ruins on two new Arena maps—Prism and Forbidden.
    • Create your own PvE experiences with the new Forge AI toolkit, and stay tuned for the arrival of Firefight King of the Hill in matchmaking.
    • Level up your customization game by equipping any helmet across all Armor Cores.
    • Complete your Career Rank journey and obtain the rank of Hero to unlock the Infinite Mark VI Armor Kit.
    • Halo 4’s Extraction mode returns, reimagined for Halo Infinite.
    • Earn XP to advance your Battle Pass in Custom Games.

    Additionally, for the first few weeks of the new season, the first twenty tiers of the “Reckoning” battle pass will be free for all players. The premium battle pass will now include fifty tiers rather than one hundred. More information on the customization options that will be available in the new battle pass will be available in the next few days before it launches next week.
