Next Week, Four New Slayer Playlists Will Be Released For “Halo Infinite”

Next week, “Halo Infinite” will receive a Slayer playlist, which will include Slayer, Fiesta, FFA, and Tactical Slayer (SWAT).

While this first version may only give a “basic” playlist, a development update posted to the Halo subreddit revealed that there are plans to “bolster and expand with more variants in a future update.”

“I’m happy to report that a Slayer playlist is officially locked and loaded for the update next week,” 343i’s community manager, Postums, told Halo fans.

“Four new playlists: Slayer, Fiesta, FFA, and Tactical Slayer (SWAT) will all be added via a services update on Tuesday, December 14.

“As I noted last week, the team’s original plans for a Slayer playlist included a variety of new variants that weren’t going to be ready in time to deploy before the holiday break. To address player feedback for Slayer in the near term, we’ll be releasing a basic Slayer offering to start and will look to bolster and expand with more variants in a future update.”

There’s more, too, such as the promised adjustments to challenges and XP, though the complete information will be revealed: “on Halo Waypoint next week.”

“Next week’s update will also include adjustments to challenges including removing some particularly frustrating mode-specific ones, reducing some requirements for others, making the weekly ultimate challenge less intensive (getting it is tough enough), and adding brand new challenges specific to the new playlists,” he added. “Personally I’m eager to check out a new challenge category that’s based on accumulating player score (a small initial step towards ‘performance-based XP’).”

Players will be able to relive missions from the game’s main campaign “later,” according to 343 Industries. The narrative for Halo Infinite went live on December 8, just a few weeks after we got our hands on the game’s multiplayer mode, which was still in beta form at the time. However, gamers have discovered that, due to the studio’s unique open-world approach to the campaign, there are presently no possibilities for players to return to tasks they’ve already accomplished in the few days after debut.

The level chosen is “all part of this stuff that’s being worked on [at] the moment,” 343i explains, but the company can’t yet “announce a date” for when it’ll be accessible.
