A series of reviews and reports for Halo Infinite has pointed out a major break with the franchise. The game has a much more open-world setup, and that means the singleplayer campaign has a very different structure. Users and reviews are pointing out how older games let you replay missions as much as you wanted. According to a response from Microsoft, things are what they are. As players clear out in-game missions, they will not be able to go back and redo old missions.
“The postgame does give you the option to keep exploring the wider environment, but for missions like the first two, where you’re not on the ring yet, you can’t replay from the same save file,” Microsoft clarified. “You’d be able to get any remaining FOBs, targets, [and] audio logs, but the main story missions would not repeat.”
The game’s map is broken up into regions. Halo Infinite wants players to explore, not too much though. Once a mission is completed, the area changes. That FOB or other mission type ceases to be. The player could head back there and check things out, but there’s not much to be found there. The narrative structure has also changed, so you better be paying attention during missions if you want to catch all of the story beats.
So what’s there to do? Not much, it turns out. You can go back and redo these missions by starting a new save, but that’s not much of a solution.
