Halo Infinite’s next big update will improve visor customization and reintroduce the fan-favorite stunt playlist featured in previous Halo games, 343 Industries announced Friday. The update, dubbed the August Drop Pod, will be coming to the game early next week on August 9.
The update will allow players to equip any visor they have purchased on any helmet, regardless of the armor core in use. Mark VII helmets will also be a bit more customizable, as you will be able to use certain Mark VII accessories on all Mark VII helmets.
Additionally, the update will finally add the much-requested stunt playlists to the game, with ranked and unranked variants scheduled to arrive next week. The developer advised that it would monitor the “health” of the new ranked playlist after it was released, and further teased that more ranked playlists could be added in the future, depending on the performance of the existing ones.
For those looking to beat some challenges, the update will also include a quality of life improvement: being able to view challenges in-game. If you pause the game, you will now be able to see your active challenges while playing. 343 also reported that the update would lay the groundwork for adding a “region selection” feature, but also reiterated that this feature is not yet ready to roll out.
In the nine months since Halo Infinite’s multiplayer release, the game has seen a host of updates, including the addition of the Last Spartan Standing semi-battle royale playlist. The campaign has also seen its fair share of improvements, with a recent network test allowing players to try out the game’s co-op campaign and mission replay feature.
