The campaign in the upcoming Halo Infinite will have both offline and online co-op.
Jerry Hook, the head of design at developer 343 Industries, tweeted about the game’s co-op plans. Specifically, he says that the game supports offline split-screen co-op.
“Hey everyone I saw some reports of campaign supporting 4 player split-screen for campaign and just want to correct,” Hook tweets. “Halo Infinite will be supporting 2 player split-screen and 4 player online co-op for campaign. Sorry about the confusion.”
The Halo franchise is well-known for its split-screen co-op. This is undoubtedly very welcome news for fans who are looking to play the campaign with friends. So whether sharing the same couch or online, you will indeed be able to share the experience with your buddies.
Last week, Microsoft gave us a first look at the game’s campaign during the Xbox Games Showcase. Just as 343 teased last month, Master Chief is going up against the Banished. The studio also shared the game’s box art.
It’s not terribly surprising to hear that Halo Infinite supports both local and online co-op. That being said, it is welcome news nonetheless.
