For those playing Halo Infinite’s multiplayer, 343 Industries has relayed the Halo Infinite upcoming playlist update hitting the game this December 14! Four new playlists are on the way which include: Fiesta, Slayer, FFA (free-for-all(, and Tactical Slayer (SWAT). All four will be added a “services update” this Tuesday, December 14.

Here’s more info regarding this coming week’s update which includes tweaks to challenges and more.
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 there is tough enough), and adding brand new challenges specific to the new playlists. 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’). We’ll have some more details to share on Halo Waypoint next week.
Lastly, on a semi-related note – please know that the team is aware of and actively investigating reports of intermittent hiccups affecting some players in BTB over the last few days. Additionally, the team is continuing to review Ranked matchmaking and player feedback around potential anomalies.
Our review of Halo Infinite as a whole should be hitting the site soon, so keep an eye out for it.
