It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Infinite halo in action through new gameplay visuals, but that hasn’t stopped 343 Industries from continuing to share more about the game on a routine basis. Recently, this trend from the studio continued in a fairly substantial way, as 343 has now shown off an entirely new weapon that players will be able to wield as a Master Chief within the long-awaited shooter.
Featured in the latest Inside Infinite blog on the Halo website, 343 Industries revealed the first look at the Skewer. The weapon is one that has not appeared in any previous Halo title and is one that is generally wielded by the Outcasts, which is a group that will serve as one of the main antagonists within Infinite. The Spike is described as a power weapon and is intended to be more “savage” in nature since it is a weapon wielded by the Brutes. “The Banished weaponry has a more primitive feel than some of the other factions, so this requires having a strong sense of organic matter in the content, this helps to lay a solid foundation and sell the mechanical nature of them,” explained the 343. lead sound designer, Kyle Fraser. “Even though I mentioned primitive in my previous sentence, Brutes in general are very smart and use this knowledge to incorporate more technological advancements into their equipment, so we made sure to bring in some interesting sci-fi items to help sell the fantasy. “
343 singled out The Skewer, in particular, to talk about how the studio is approaching creating new sound effects for the all-new weapons featured in the series. Since the Banished are a relatively fighter group, the studio had to think a bit more outside the box to make Skewer’s sounds that much more unique.
Infinite halo It is scheduled to launch later this fall and will hit the Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC platforms. If you want to read more about the game, you can check out some other new details about the project right here that 343 Industries recently revealed.
