On the YouTube page, the description gives a bit more insight into what players can expect to experience when Halo Infinite launches on December 8, 2021.
"The Banished have defeated UNSC forces and taken control of the mysterious Zeta Halo, threatening the survival of humankind," The description reads. "When all hope is lost and humanity’s fate hangs in the balance, the Master Chief returns to confront the most ruthless foe he’s ever faced. Here’s a fresh look at the Halo Infinite campaign that introduces players to true Spartan freedom in the biggest, most wide open and adventure-filled Halo experience yet, launching on December 8, 2021."
This will be our first major look at Halo Infinite's campaign since its controversial showing at the Xbox Games Showcase in July 2020 ahead of the launch of Xbox Series X/S. Master Chief's latest adventure was set to be a launch title for Microsoft's next-gen consoles, but the game was delayed following blowback about Halo Infinite's graphics and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its development timeline.
Since then, we have seen a ton of Halo Infinite's multiplayer in the form of gameplay videos and multiple technical previews that let players around the world try Halo Infinite for the first time. Unlike the campaign's first showing, Halo Infinite's multiplayer was received quite positively by fans and critics alike.
"It’s got snappy pacing in its matches, the gunplay is some of the best I’ve ever played, and between my reaction as a new player and that of IGN’s resident Halo old-timers, Infinite’s multiplayer really does seem to be shaping up to be just about everything you could want from a modern-day Halo game," IGN's Stella Chung wrote in her multiplayer review in progress.
