With Microsoft promising us a new look at Halo Infinite at this coming July’s Xbox 20/20 digital event, it seems 343 Industries is already readying the hype train as a new Halo Infinite teaser is out, and it confirms that The Banished are coming!
You can watch the Halo Infinite teaser below, which is titled “Signal Detected. Tag Designation: Foe.”
Here’s a transcript of what’s said in the video:
The hour approaches. Forces occupy the ring. Within hours, it will be under our control. Humanity will burn. The brazen defiance will be all but a memory. No more Prophets. No more lies. We stand together, brothers to the end. We are his will, we are his legacy, we are The Banished.
Those not familiar with Halo lore, here’s what the Halopedia has to say about them:
The Banished are a mercenary organization and splinter faction that rebelled against the Covenant Empire and rose to power after the conclusion of the Human-Covenant War. The organization is led by the Jiralhanae warlord Atriox.
Given how The Banished hasn’t been seen in a mainline Halo game in quite some time, I gather fans should be excited at the idea of takingon these brutes again.
There’s no set date yet for when the Xbox 20/20 July event will air, but once we know more, we’ll let our readers know.
