Halo Infinite season 2 card delivers classic Halo vibes in first preview video

Halo infinite players will soon have a few new multiplayer cards to compete on when season 2 launches on May 3rd. The game gets new maps as part of its upcoming season 2 update, and developer 343 Industries gave fans their first look at the new battlefields with a preview video on Friday.

One of the cards is an Arena card known as Catalyst. It’s a Forerunner structure with faded silver throughout, various ramps leading to different heights, hardlight bridges and plenty of times to meet and fight your opponents. This is exactly what you expect from a classic Halo card. 343 says that Catalyst is symmetrical and was inspired by Halo 3‘s Epitaph short.

Breaker will be for Halo infinite‘s Big Team Battle mode, which means it’s a lot bigger than Catalyst. Breaker takes place in a desert with two massive fortresses that teams can use as their home bases. 343 says the map is particularly good for Capture the Flag, thanks to its midfield offering sniper optimal site lines and the huge pit in the middle that you can jump a warthog over … as long as you avoid the giant laser, who guards it.

Both cards seem to bring different environments than what Halo infinite has to offer so far, which should provide a nice change of pace for the community. The Season 2 update will be Halo infinite‘s first major content addition since it was launched late last year. While Season 2 is set to add new multiplayer content, other add-ons like Forge and Campaign Co-op will not be added until a later update.
