Halo Infinite adds fan-made map playlists, major bug fix
endless halo had a stone life. Although the launch received critical acclaim, its multiplayer offerings are still lacking, even compared to older versions. Halo Game’. One of the biggest problems that shooters face is the lack of maps. And although 343 has added some maps in the last few updates, many bad maps (look at you, Bazaar) still exist and are still not great. Thankfully, 343 is reaching out Awesome community-made maps to improve the situation.
Since November of last year (and even before that thanks to the leak) endless halo players have been creating amazing things using Forge, the in-game map editor. At first, Forge was a neat engine that didn’t add much to the game. But in December, 343 added a custom game browser ARRIVE infinite, making it easy to find cool new maps and actually play them with people. Now, 343 is taking the next step and creating a matchmaking-enabled playlist that focuses entirely on community-generated Forge maps.
Earlier today, 343 were all announced and released the endless halo Community Collection playlists on all platforms. The community collection includes four fan-made maps—some brand new, some vintage-inspired Halo maps—in a dedicated playlist. This is currently the easiest way to quickly mix and play with others on select 343 custom Forge maps.
The first four maps added to this new playlist are:
- Starboard – Remake of halo 2feeder ship,
- Danger – A new map partially inspired by Lockout.
- Absolution – A new arena made mostly of stone.
- Salvation – Banish-themed remake of the classic Halo map, Cave ‘Em High.
While the collection of exciting new maps—including some much-needed remakes of previous battlefields—is great news, I’m more than glad this is just the beginning. 343 said it plans to add more fan-generated content to this new Community Collection playlist “in the future” and will reveal these plans later. For now, though, let’s enjoy welcoming this cool new content in Infinite aura.
