Halo Infinite Campaign Launch Trailer
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The Halo Infinite Campaign Launch Trailer is a trailer promoting the release of Halo Infinite's campaign. It was released on November 30, 2021, eight days before the campaign's release on December 8.
The trailer opens on Installation 07 with a large Forerunner tower changing shape and pulsing with energy. The camera pans downward to reveal John-117 staring at the imposing structure. As this occurs, echoing whispers from Cortana can be heard:
The camera approaches John above his left shoulder.
The camera turns to face John from the front as he continues to look at the structure with another Forerunner structure behind, presumably where he came from. Cut to black.
Cut to a space battle, with the UNSC Infinity in close-range combat with multiple Banished warships. One of the warships rams through the upper hull of the Infinity as a Banished Phantom flies past the camera. Cut to John observing a hologram of Pelican Echo 216 and casualties of the battle as Escharum begins to speak.
Cut to a hologram of Escharum.
Cut to John-117 observing the damaged Installation 07 from the cockpit of Pelican Echo 216.
Cut to Echo 216's pilot looking up at John, clearly distressed.
The camera pans up to John.
Cut to John and The Weapon inside a Forerunner structure.
John holds out a data crystal chip to The Weapon. She reaches for it and her avatar winks out of existence as her code is absorbed into the ship. John inserts the chip into the back of his helmet. Cut to John in the troop bay of Echo 216. With a Banished stronghold visible in the distance, he runs and jumps out of the Pelican. The camera merges with John's point of view as he falls.
John hits the ground and immediately draws his MA40 assault rifle.
Cut to gameplay of John fighting Banished as music plays. Rapid cuts between gameplay of combat in grassy landscapes, Forerunner structures, and Banished bases. John fights and kills multiple Jiralhanae, Unggoy, and Sangheili. While in a Banished encampment, he uses his Grappleshot to pick up a Fusion coil to toss a large fuel reservoir, destroying it. Cut to John in the driver's seat of an M12B Warthog. He drives it through grassy fields, running over a lone Kig-Yar. Cut to The Weapon attempting to access something. She gives a shout of pain and drops to her knees and John passes her, MA40 at the ready.
Cut to a dark Forerunner chamber with a bright light emanating from its center. Column-like structures rotate around the center of the room to reveal the The Harbinger. John abruptly swivels, presumably to face her.
The Harbinger levitates above John with him looking up at her. She lunges at John and hits him with energy that launches him into the air and seemingly teleports him outside of the structure. John flies back-first into the trunk of a dead tree, smashing clean through it. Cut to black. John enters the cockpit of an AV-49 Wasp. Cut to John using the Wasp to rain down fire upon enemy forces near a Banished stronghold. Cut to text screen as the Wasp approaches the camera.
Gameplay of John approaching a Banished camp with the Wasp. He fires its missiles before taking damage and leaping from the vehicle. As he falls to the ground, he fires on and kills a Jiralhanae warrior with an M41 SPNKR. He takes out a Sentinel beam as he walks toward the camp's center structure. Cut to John prying open a pair of doors within a Banished facility.
Escharum drops to the floor with a confident expression on his face.
Cut to Bassus preparing to land a downward strike on John with his Type-2 gravity hammer. John grapples a container behind the Chieftain and pulls it into his back, causing the Jiralhanae to miss with his swing. Cut to text screen.
John retrieves an MA40 from the wreckage of a Warthog floating in space. Cut to black. John leaps from a very tall Forerunner structure. As he falls, Pelican Echo 216 dives past him and its pilot opens the troop bay, letting various unsecured items fly out. Cut to the interior of the Pelican's troop bay with John holding the avatar of The Weapon. The pilot looks back at John from the cockpit.
