I played an hour of the campaign and the gameplay is really fun

Some of the best sound design I've heard in a game too

The amount of stuff to do in the open world is amazing. I'm having fun exploring everything

the devs said they cut out 2/3rds of the game too, wonder how big it would've been if they hadn't done that

Really impressed with the campaign so far. It’s just a great combat loop complimented by superb enemy AI and potentially one of the best gadgets I’ve seen in gaming in a long time.

The grapple hook is such a well designed item. It’s not overblown, it’s just the clean ass compliment to traversal and intuitive as hell to use. It’s like Pathfinders from Apex legends but far superior from a technical standpoint, and more fun.

Didn't read the thread.. I have Xbox Game Pass for PC. It says "Halo Infinite (Campaign)" .. is there MP that's not included in the game pass version or something?

It looks like there are 2 downloads. The Campaign released yesterday, so Gamepass sent out updates to remind users, along with the link to the standalone download. Download the one that just says "Halo Infinite" not "Halo Infinite (Campaign)."

Using the grapple hook on a jackal's shield then headshotting them is satisfying af

The ability to add on stuff down the road is the reason I think they did this. I have a feeling this open world is going to grow quite a bit in the coming years.

Yep. Love using it to get around. Grapple top of a tree, launch, grapple another and continue.

Also you need the grapple to get to a lot of the skull locations

the way it worked for me wasn't how i expected. there's two entries but they both seem to be the same thing. when you're done downloading you have to go to the campaign listing in the menu and then hit to download it there.

that's how i thought it would work but that's not how it worked for me. i was getting disconnects during the first week of multiplayer so i uninstalled it. when i went to install the campaign it just reinstalled multiplayer and then when i loaded that up there was an option under campaign to download the campaign in the game itself.

One thing I really love is that the tone of this is way more grounded and engaging than the other 343 games, or even just the reveal video from last year.
