Developer 343 Industries has released a trailer for the new Halo Infinite season 3. The third season of Halo Infinite, titled Echoes Within, has been a long time coming. Originally scheduled for release last fall on Xbox and Windows PC, 343 Industries pushed it back a few months, instead opting to release a “Winter Update,” which included a handful of new maps and features but not the kind of content deluge that typically defines full seasons.
Halo Infinite seasons include a 100-level battle pass with cosmetics; the Winter Update included 30 levels.
The bandit rifle, a single-shot weapon that appears to function similarly to the DMR from beloved Halo games such as Halo 4 and Halo: Reach, will be included in Echoes Within. This is essentially a smoke grenade that drops alongside the shroud screen. Three new maps will also be added to Echoes Within The Big Team Battle playlist’s Oasis level, while Chasm and Cliffhanger are for the more popular four-vs.-four Arena mode.
Shortly after releasing the Winter Update, 343 released a beta for Halo Infinite’s Forge mode, which includes a set of creation tools that allow players to create fully customized maps. Forge levels were finally added to Halo Infinite’s general matchmaking as part of the Community Collection playlist earlier this month.
Four maps were added to the initial rotation, including remakes of Halos’ past totemic levels. Season three will include more, but the standout is “Art’s Room,” a stage set in what appears to be a suburban teen’s room.
