Halo Infinite: a particular tribute to Craig the Brute has been found

Halo Infinite: a particular tribute to Craig the Brute has been found

Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite is finally available yesterday, and many enthusiasts are starting the new space epic of Master Chief. Speaking of one of the most anticipated games of the year, many are already publishing a series of content and opinions on the new Halo's single player campaign online. Among the first discoveries to emerge online, an enthusiast wanted to show us a particular easter egg unearthed in the game.

This enthusiast has published his latest discovery on Reddit, that is a rock that looks incredibly similar to Craig the Brute; one of the first memes that sprang from the very first Halo Infinite gameplay trailer. This rock seems to have been unearthed within the new Zeta Halo ring, the battlefield that is the backdrop to the highly anticipated new iteration of the well-known FPS brand.

The rock is so well carved that it does not seem at all a coincidence that it takes up the features of Craig's face. For this the user underlines how this find can be defined as a real easter egg well inserted within the open world game world.

Microsoft Trademarks ‘Halo: The Endless,’ A Possible ‘Infinite’ Expansion

Halo Infinite


Microsoft has just filed a new trademark for Halo: The Endless, in something that appears like a possible title for an upcoming expansion to Halo Infinite, and will make more sense as you start to make your way through the game.

Extremely light spoilers follow for now, where The Endless are brought up pretty quickly as some sort of new race that Zeta Halo is housing, and that the Harbinger is trying to free. Details on what exactly The Endless are remain in short order throughout the game, but they’re promised to be “worse than the Flood.”

Now heavier, ending spoilers begin. But because of the nature of the ending, it doesn’t reveal much other than what you don’t see.

What happens is that in the end, we never meet The Endless. After hearing them hyped up all game, there is no moment when they are actually introduced as a new alien race to fight. We don’t even get a proper look at them.

The final, post-credits scene has Atriox going deep into the Ring into the “storage” area for the Endless to apparently free them. But again, we don’t see them, only Promethean sketches of what they might sort of look like inside their repositories. From that, it’s almost impossible to tell what they’re supposed to be. Kind of like Vex Harpies from Destiny, maybe. It remains unclear.

And that’s the point. To me, this felt like a bit of rug-pulling as after all the campaign hype, I figured we would meet The Endless eventually. But that is clearly being saved for future content in the game, and this Halo: The Endless trademark would align with that idea.

As I’ve said before, we still do not know what exactly Microsoft’s post-campaign story content plan is here. While clearly, we are not going to be waiting six more years for Halo Infinite 2, we also don’t know how often we’re getting new story content, and what size it will be. The best guess, and it’s only a guess, is that we could get perhaps yearly expansions with some amount of story content. Albeit introducing an entirely new enemy race seems like a pretty significant moment for the series, and that may be a project that takes longer to come to fruition. Two or three years instead. But I certainly don’t think we’re getting seasonal story content to align with multiplayer.

This does sound like an expansion to me, just from the title, and given the context of The Endless in the campaign itself, and how clearly the next phase of Infinite is to actual reveal them. But we have no idea when this might be coming, nor even when 343 may even start talking about when this might be coming, so just hold tight, I suppose.
