A very creative and committed Halo fan is recreating the Halo Infinite campaign demo inside Halo 5, and it’s looking really good so far. Twitter user Ducain23 is using Halo 5’s Forge tools to re-make the Halo Infinite campaign demo, which was showcased during July’s Xbox Series X-centric event, and he recently shared an update on his progress.
The images below show off the impressive-looking map, featuring imagery and objects that appear very similar to the Halo Infinite demo. We see a Warthog entering the map, with huge pillars in the background. There are Grunts in another shot, while another image shows off some of the trees and grass that was seen in the demo. In short, it all looks really good so far, and it will be intriguing to see the finished product when Ducain23 wraps it up. He says he has around 700 more objects to add, and hopefully he finds a way to work in Craig.
Ducain23 is chronicling his creation on Twitch. If you’ve ever dabbled with the Halo 5 Forge tools, you know how extensive they are regarding the level of depth and complexity of what can be created. Ducain23 is putting them to great use, and his behind-the-scenes videos of creating the demo in Halo 5 are educational and entertaining. You can watch them here on Twitch.
This isn’t the first time Halo Infinite’s demo is being remade inside another game. Someone else is using Halo 5’s Forge tools to re-make Halo Infinite’s campaign demo, and Microsoft has taken notice. People have used PlayStation’s game-making game, Dreams, to do the same thing, while someone else has imagined what Halo Infinite might look like as a Nintendo 64 game.
Halo Infinite developer 343 recently delayed the release of Halo Infinite until 2021 due in part to complications related to working from home during the pandemic. The developer has asked fans to “hold tight” for more news regarding the game and the future of the franchise.
