Halo Infinite campaign level select coming, says 343

Players will be able to replay missions.

Halo Infinite campaign level select will be added to the game at a later date, 343 Industries has told Stevivor, meaning players will be able to replay missions without the need to start the game from scratch.

“You cannot replay missions in campaign at this point of time,” 343 Associate Creative Director Paul Crocker told Stevivor this morning, confirming our earlier deduction whilst detailing the reasons why.

“It’s part of what is coming later,” he continued. “The main reason is because, being a more open game and a nonlinear game, it became incredibly challenging. It’s not that it doesn’t work, it’s just that it’s not finished. 

We made the decision to make a better game, to improve the quality of the game so we could then add the features — just like co-op. And that is that is disappointing for us as the people who made it, but it was, also, the better option for us to make a better game and add that later.”

While this writer’s hunch is that level select will be added alongside campaign co-op, Crocker wasn’t able to put a specific launch date to either feature.

“[Level select] is all part of this stuff that’s being worked on the moment,” he said, “and obviously we haven’t announced a date. The reason I‘m being a bit cagey is I honestly don’t know exactly, but people are working that even now. It’s coming… is the only answer we can give.”

Crocker also confirmed — as we’ve already found in our experience — that any collectibles found whilst playing Infinite are tied to your profile rather than to specific saves.

“Things like collectibles that you have collected are stored in your profile,” he said. “Your profile is the important thing. Your profile stores your progress. The save is just where that that version of campaign is.”

Halo Infinite is now live on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. Check out our Halo Infinite review here and stay tuned for more from Crocker and Character Director Steve Dyck.
