Halo Infinite Forge leaked footage has us craving its customization

A couple of leaked Halo Infinite Forge mode videos have our minds racing at the feature’s wealth of possibilities.

There is currently no release date for the eagerly anticipated Forge mode in Halo Infinite. However, freshly released videos display some incredibly exciting scripting aspects. One demonstrates a potential zombies game akin to Call of Duty, while another demonstrates a tool that upgrades your weapons (thanks, Wccftech

The movies, which were posted by YouTube user Helioskrub, demonstrate two very different uses of the potentially complex scripting in Halo Infinite Forge mode. Although neither video is particularly detailed, they do give away the possibility that Halo Infinite’s Forge mode will be the most adaptable one yet.

Spartan survival

The player creates a temporary wall to block a window in the first leaked Halo Infinite Forge mode footage. As Helioskrub notes, it would be feasible to create a zombies survival mode in the vein of Call of Duty in Forge mode.

That is, of course, assuming that gamers will be able to set AI-controlled foes against which to test your survival skills. However, it might also work as a novel take on Halo’s well-known Infection multiplayer mode. ‘Infected’ players, who can often only utilize melee weapons, are pitted against a squad of survivors in the game Infection. Those who kill survivors catch the disease themselves.

The famous Flood adversaries from Halo would be ideal for a Zombies mode created in Forge. Sadly, Halo Infinite does not have the zombie-like Flood. We’d love to see Flood assets from Halo: The Master Chief Collection reused for Halo Infinite, though, assuming the new Forge mode does permit the deployment of AI-controlled actors.

Bigger, better guns

The second video demonstrates a functional “Pack-a-Punch” device that the player can use to insert their weapons. The player can improve their weapons to resemble their more powerful campaign variants by depositing enough points (produced by a different button for testing purposes).

The campaign weapons in Halo Infinite are significantly more potent than those used in multiplayer. This might result in some hilariously broken online multiplayer games as Spartans set arenas on fire with their explosive pistols.

The Pack-a-Punch machine’s creator admits that it took a lot of work to make it. This is due to the fact that each weapon has a unique programming path in order to be upgraded. As a result, if you were to provide improvements for every weapon in the game, you’d have a big scripting burden on your hands.

Bags of potential

A really early build of Halo Infinite’s Forge mode is probably what the leaker in the aforementioned videos has demonstrated. It has certain bugs and crashes frequently, but we hope these issues will be fixed before the official release.

Forge mode maps have historically been bound to a “budget” structure. The number of objects you can place on the map is hard capped as a result. But with the Xbox Series X|S’s improved capabilities, Halo Infinite’s Forge mode should ideally support a far greater price cap than earlier games.

Unfortunately, we still don’t know when Halo Infinite will feature Forge mode. However, it shouldn’t be too long before the game receives new upgrades. The long-awaited campaign co-op feature for Halo Infinite is finally coming, and previously released footage suggests that the wait was probably worthwhile.
