The past few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind of activity. The excitement from the community is palpable and everyone is still on the high from slaying bots last weekend. If you didn't get a chance to play but want to check out some of the action, you are in luck and there's plenty to be found later in the blog. In lieu of the traditional Spotlights I've done in the past, I really wanted to showcase people's fun and excitement from the flight so there's a little bit of art and a whole lot of clips. 

I also want to touch on another small thing. When we hit the vNext edition of Waypoint, we're aiming to be a more accessible place for all. One of the ways that can be done is by using what's called "Alt text" (or, alternative text used to describe the image). Twitter gives you the chance to do this natively on posts and I would love to see a world where our Halo artists are including alt text on their own so everyone can experience the art in their own way.


Personal AIs were a big hit during the Tech Preview and people would up being pretty partial to one over another. Personally I'm a big fan of Circ because I love the sass. For those of you that played last weekend (how has a week already gone by??), who were you partial to? Looks like @MattyMcDee was Team Fret. Don't fret, there's a wallpaper edition available for you if you want and if you prefer Butlr or Lumu, you're covered too. *cries sadly in Circ*

Snack Break

I don't know that I need to explain SonicJohn117's artistical take on the Halo Infinite menu music because I'm pretty sure we were all that guy in the chair when we booted up for the first time. So, it might be slightly cheating since it's *our* music but it's a clever bit of editing and I enjoyed it.

Clip Cornucopia

Seeing the community get hands on with our game for the first time did not disappoint. Especially once you all discovered just how much fun the Grappleshot is. I absolutely cannot wait to see what shenanigans come from this. In the meantime, enjoy!

Happy July, Halo fam! June was pretty exciting, wasn't it? From the Multiplayer reveal, to the behind the scenes with MP team, to the Waypoint edition of Inside Infinite (my personal favorite!), there was so much good stuff to unpack. Seeing the absolute love and adoration for The Weapon was amazing and, as you'll soon see, there was a lot of excitement for her.

Summer is rapidly approaching and with it comes sunshine and endless opportunities for fun such as hiking, playing Halo, swimming, thinking about Halo, streaming Halo, creating Halo content... Did I mention Halo yet? Just checking. I've got Halo on the brain lately (just ignore that I work here and probably think about it every day, okay? That's not the point!) and I can't quite put my finger on why...

It's May which means that the year is officialy over 1/3rd of the way done and I don't know what to do with this information. Time is a funny thing and it has absolutely been flying lately. But hey, one month closer to some new video games, right? Anything coming up that you're looking forward to? No matter what you're excited for, there's always time to check out our latest Community Spotlight!
