Despite its name, hello infinity is very literally finite. Like most story-driven games, 343’s Barnbuster first-person shooter comes to a conclusion—and, man, it’s bananas, where there are all kinds of implications for auraThe story can go By now, a bunch of you have seen it for yourself. You probably have many thoughts and feelings. buckle up.

Spoilers, of course, for the end hello infinity,

A spoiler alert for Hello Infinity blocks text from simple readers.

hello infinityThe campaign ends with a couple of boss fights. The first is against Eskerum, the leader of an enemy faction called the Exiles. Escarum is the guardian of Atriox, the former exiled leader who defeats the hero Master Chief’s Stuffing. hello infinityThe cinematic is beginning, but apparently dies, before the game can actually run.

For a cocktail of reasons including honor, bravery, and a compelling argument of “I’m the villain so fight me”, Eskerum spends the entire game longing for a one-on-one showdown against the Chief, ultimately the Chief’s only human friend. , a space military engineer known only as a pilot, for use as bait. You find them You defeated Eskerum. He dies. You save the pilot (whose real name, Fernando Esparza, is revealed a few cutscenes later). Cold. moving on.

The second fight, and the more consequential one, is against someone named Harbinger, who has such an apt name on his nose that he would fit perfectly into a BioWare game. You see, Harbinger is the messenger of an ancient civilization, the Endless, who were imprisoned for thousands and thousands of years before they began. hello infinity, His goal, for the rest of the game, is to free his people from their prison on Zeta Halo (where.) infinite on a large scale). Yours, in the final battle, is to stop him.

then it’s bullshit Real, Although you defeat Harbinger (who fights so bravely with an incredibly hopeless beast with a one-hit-kill gravity hammer), she still, apparently, accomplishes her mission. Fernando swoops in and picks up the Chief, but notices he’s been off the radar for three days—even though that fight lasts an hour, tops.

The weapon stands on the palm of the Master Chief in Halo Infinite.

The Chief’s AI Companion, The Weapon, who learned of his shocking, blood-soaked origins– that he is a copy of the Chief’s former AI companion, Cortana – in a series of hologram recordings just before the final fight, mentions that he has decided a name for himself. fade to Black.

oh what is this? one more Spoiler Alert?

Spoilers for the Legendary-only ending hello infinity,

a spoiler warning banner

there is a tradition for aura The game will have two end-credits stingers – a cutscene for those who beat the game, and another for those who beat the game on Legendary difficulty, the highest level. if you end hello infinity On Legendary, you get to see…the same cutscenes as you would on any other difficulty. The only difference is that it has been given a dateline and a cryptic voiceover track.

base-level cutscene, what you can see here, shows Atriox opening the gel containing Endless. Part of the scene is to establish that, yes, Harbinger succeeded in her mission, but it is also a shocking revelation. You’re telling me this enemy we’re told over and over again that he’s dead but the one we didn’t see dying on screen wasn’t actually dead the whole time? Get outta here!

That’s just part of the story. For your reference, in the event that you are just beginning to deal with the cooperative play of May hello infinity On its highest difficulty setting, here’s the legend-only cutscene:

See? Same thing. But the devil is in the details.

Let’s put that date: 97,368 BC is shortly after the Halo network was fired in 97,455 BC, thereby wiping out all sentient life from the galaxy (well, for those who went into hiding) the ark, an exogenous feature). Huh.

It is also telling that Despondent Pyre, the AI ​​unit responsible for monitoring Zeta Halo, is talking in this convo. If you remember, by the end of hello infinityDesperate pyre is very much, Very dead. The other chatterbox is the Grand Edict, possibly a high-ranking member of the Forerunner, the people who imprisoned the Endless. At the end of their conversation, the Grand Edict mentions that offensive bias, another AI unit has been deployed.

Offensive Prejudice?

In hello loreIn this article, Offensive Bias was designed as a failsafe for Mendicant Bias, a rogue AI entity whose 100,000-year story would require at least ten more blogs for a suitable rundown. For now, I’ll direct you to the character Impressively Entire Bio Page on Halopedia.

some fans believe that hello infinity Engaged in temporary hijinks. After all, that cutscene dates back to about 100,000 years ago; How could Atriox have ended up there (err, then) if not for time travel? It makes sense that Atrix would also want to zip back in time. Her planet was, after all, wiped out by Cortana; The only way to stop this from happening would be to fall back on someone avengers: endgame-Level plot changes.

Besides, at the present moment that whole thing aura The story where the Master Chief mysteriously turns off his radar during his fight with Harbinger reappears only three days later. And some of the dialogue in that final voiceover—particularly the part where the respondent Pyr says, “Time is not a construct we can control,” only to have the Grand Addict say “we can’t allow it theirs”—is Indicates that time travel will play a role in the future aura Story.

Other fans are not so sure.

believes in a theory That dateline is there solely to time the conversations we’re listening to, not the events we’re watching. The interaction still took place about 100,000 years ago, the theory states, but the Atriox setting appears to be going down during or shortly after the event of The Endless Lost. hello infinity, There is a precedent for such a hoodwink: Halo 4 pulled a similar move with its mythical end,

hello infinity Beyond the matter of time travel ends at open questions – especially who, or what, are endless. a reddit user put forward the idea That Endless Is Actually Flood, A Hivemind Species From The Origins aura The trilogy is bent on eating all sentient life in the galaxy. another user took that notion a step further and, tying together the various glyphs and development properties aura Ouwer compiled a convincing argument that Endless is in fact a hivemind, but more technologically advanced than Flood. (Seriously, the theory is ridiculously well researched, and worth a read,

anywhere or whenever aura Goes forward, Endless are sure to play a major role. in 2020, Developer 343 Industries said She hello infinity would not receive a sequel, and would instead serve as a base platform for “the next ten years” of expansions and such. last month, As NME reports, Microsoft filed a trademark for “Halo: The Endless”. Maybe hello infinity After all, it is not so limited.
