Now Playing: Halo Infinite | Season 2 Announce Trailer - Lone Wolves

The team revealed plans for what it's calling Drop Pods, monthly updates that will both add content and squash bugs. Staten ensured that the campaign co-op looks promising, and 343 aims to have it released in late August alongside mission replays. He also explained what 343 means when it says Forge mode will launch in open beta. When Forge mode comes out in September, it will be a "full feature set," and everything players make in the beta will carry over into the full version.

Like Season 1's focus on Reach, Season 2 will also have a theme. This time, the titular "Lone Wolves" will be behind enemy lines trying to bring something dangerous back to the Academy.

A portion of the Season 2 trailer can be seen below, but 343 is saving the full reveal for launch day. Like how Halo Reach worked, your spartan will appear in cutscenes with everything you're wearing. The cinematic narrative event shown during the steam will be a part of a "serial story" that's told throughout seasons to come. 343 also teased another cinematic mid-stream with no explanation as to how it'll play into the overall narrative of Halo Infinite.
