One of my favorite gametypes for Halo might be coming to The Master Chief Collection in a matter of weeks: Infection.
I used to play a ton of Infection with my friends during and immediately after our stint in college. It’s a great gametype that pitches normal soldiers against the infected. Infected have swords, soldiers have shotties. As an infected kills a non-infected, they turn their victim into infected. The game goes until the last man standing dies. It’s pretty fun, and I dumped a whole lot of time into it back in the day.
The most recent update on Halo Waypoint indicates that an Infection playlist is in the works. The update itself is massive, and you can read it by hitting the source link below. As for the information I’m talking about here in this post, here is what 343 offers.
The playlist team continues to work on future updates, and it’s quite likely that we’ll be talking more about things like Infection in the coming weeks.
That’s it. It’s enough for me, though. I’ll make sure my copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection is kept updated over the next week or so in the hopes that I’ll be able to jump in and play some Infection as soon as it’s unleashed upon the world.
