Brace yourself, Spartans – Infection mode is finally coming to Halo Infinite.
343 Industries announced the “return of the infection in Season 4” via a simple tweet posted on the official Halo social media channels. The battle for survival begins on June 20th.
Infection — a PvP zombie mode that sees infected Spartans seek out and infect healthy companions — has long been a Spartan staple but was noticeably missing from Infinite when it launched in 2021.
Microsoft recently promised more “consistency” with Halo Infinite seasonal updates, as its third season began back in March. Season 4 is set to launch next month along with a new progression system and the highly anticipated Infection mode.
