The long wait has been duly rewarded with the latest winter update

343 has a full release log on their website, which has everything that this update comes with for anyone interested. As longtime fans of the Halo series might be aware, the campaign Co-Op has been a staple of the series for the longest time.

When Halo Infinite launched last November, it was missing this feature very much to the disappointment of its fans.

But thanks to this new update, up to four players can enjoy the Halo Infinite campaign together. The best part about the Co-Op campaign is that Halo Infinite supports cross-play between Xbox consoles and PC, so you can play with your friends without worrying about the platform.

Halo Infinite now allows chapter select

And for those who missed some achievements during their first playthrough of the campaign, the game now allows you to select chapters from the TACMAP and replay any campaign missions you want.

The other fan-favorite thing missing from Halo Infinite at the launch was The Forge. The forge is a map creator, and now The Forge is available in beta to the players. 343 states that this latest version of forge boasts the most powerful toolset yet, with object scaling, lighting and audio tools, and such.

Along with all these new gameplay modes, maps, and battle passes, 343 Industries have also said to change how XP is awarded to players at the end of each multiplayer map. Players now get XP for completing matches and additional XP based on the players’ performance during a match.

343 Industries have taken all the criticism it received last year to heart and have really worked hard on making Halo Infinite the game that fans would love. And they have convinced me to re-download the game.
