Halo Infinite Season 3: Echoes Within Is Its Biggest Update Yet

Halo Infinite Season 3 arrives on March 7.


Halo Infinite is set to get its biggest multiplayer update yet with Season 3: Echoes Within, which kicks off on March 7. Ahead of the new season, 343 Industries released a trailer showing off the new maps, modes, and weapons that will be added as part of the new season.

The Season 3: Echoes Within launch trailer shows off three new maps from 343 Industries. The first is the new Big Team Battle map Oasis, which takes place in a red desert, with a small grassy oasis located on the map. The other two maps, Cliffhanger and Chasm, are Arena maps. The first takes place on a mountain with melting snow around the map, while Chasm is set in a Forerunner construct.

Those aren't the only new maps coming along with Season 3 of Halo Infinite, as there are four new community maps getting added to the community playlist as well, with Art's Room, a bedroom where the players are toy-sized, headlining the drop. This comes alongside the announcement that players will be able to earn XP in the community playlist moving forward.

There are two new additions to the Halo Infinite arsenal, with the Shroud Screen equipment and the Bandit rifle. The Shroud Screen creates a medium sized bubble that obstructs visibility, not letting anyone see in or out of it. The Bandit rifle looks to be a spiritual successor to the DMR, offering the same high powered single-shots but without the scope. The new game mode, Escalation Slayer, appears to work similar to Call of Duty's Gun Game, where you obtain a new weapon after each kill while working your way through every weapon in the game.

A sizzle reel of new cosmetics promises some vibrant colors and patterns for players to customize their spartans with. There are also some story teasers for the battle pass theme, showing a spartan go through some trippy and traumatizing events, presumably related to the Echoes Within season name. Halo Infinite Season 3: Echoes Within starts on March 7.
