Halo Infinite Campaign Trailer Teases Boss Fight Against Escharum

The Halo Infinite launch trailer has released ahead of the Xbox console exclusive's release on December 8, teasing Master Chief's battle against the Banished and their vicious leader, Escharum. Past Halo Infinite trailers have provided a closer look at the Brute threatening the galaxy in the newest installment of the long-running and groundbreaking Xbox sci-fi shooter franchise, with Escharum boasting about his imminent victory against Master Chief in multiple videos.

Escharum is far from the only new foe Master Chief will battle against in Halo Infinite, as 343 Industries has shown off several threatening Banished forces like the flying Skimmer Drones and the “sadistic Spartan killer” Elite Jega ‘Rdomnai amid Halo's traditional assortment of Grunts, Brutes, and Jackals. Additionally, Cheif will encounter a mysterious Didact-like enemy named the Harbinger of Truth during Halo Infinite's single-player campaign, and its been hinted that his former AI companion Cortana may appear as yet another Halo Infinite villain after her supposed death in Halo 4 and surprise return in Halo 5: Guardians. For now though, it seems that the Banished will be the primary threat in Halo Infinite - and Master Cheif will most likely battle Escharum in direct combat before the final credits.

On Wednesday, the Halo Infinite campaign launch trailer was posted to the Xbox YouTube channel, providing a closer look at the game's upcoming story. Master Chief is shown to be haunted by Cortaana's disappearance as Banished leader Escharum declares humanity will soon be nothing more than a memory. This prompts Chief to take to the battlefield once more in a montage of previously seen Halo Infinite gameplay ending with the legendary supersoldier going face-to-face against Escharum himself.

Halo Infinite's multiplayer launch broke Xbox records for the most concurrent users on Steam mere hours after it was made available under a free-to-play model a few weeks ago to commemorate the Halo franchise's 20th anniversary. Response to Infinite's new features and refined gameplay has been quite positive so far, with players making creative use of the game's new Grappleshot and Repulsor tools to pull off some creative kills. Meanwhile, retail stores are already getting physical copies of Halo Infinite, prompting fans to be wary of online spoilers in the days leading up to the release of the game's single-player content on December 8.

Halo Infinite’s campaign has been highly anticipated for several years now, especially so after developer 343 Industries delayed the game from its planned launch alongside the Xbox Series X/S last year to address negative feedback about the campaign's initial gameplay reveal. This wait is about to come to an end in a week's time, as players will finally step back onto a Halo ring and take on the galaxy’s newest threat as Master Chief.
