The team at 343 Industries got creative to capture some of the sounds for vehicles in the next-gen Halo title.
It's an exciting time to be a Halo fan, as Microsoft is releasing Halo Infinite as a launch title for the Xbox Series X later this year. The first new details in a long time will be released during a July Xbox event, and while you wait for that, Microsoft has published its latest behind-the-scenes video that showcases how the Halo Infinite audio engineering team went about capturing sounds for the next-gen Halo title.
In the new behind-the-scenes video, Halo Infinite's audio engineers are seen recording "custom electric engines" with special microphones. The sounds from this recording session will be used for the sci-fi vehicles in Halo Infinite. Check out the video below to see for yourself.

Microsoft has been steadily releasing these "Sound Design Saturday" videos for more than a year. Previous videos showcased how the team captured real bullets flying overhead and a propane cannon to capture sounds of explosions. The team also showed off how they recorded a Chevy El Camino, helicopters, and jet engines for the sounds of vehicles in Halo Infinite. And who could forget this delightful video featuring a pug whose guttural gruffs will be heard in Halo Infinite.
Halo Infinite releases in Holiday 2020 as a launch title for Microsoft's next-generation console, Xbox Series X, as well as PC. The game will also be playable on Xbox One as well as the other variations of the next-generation Xbox that might be coming.
Microsoft will show more of Halo Infinite during the Xbox 20/20 event in July. Ahead of that, Microsoft has warned people to stay vigilant online, as bad actors are creating fake leaks about Halo Infinite.
