“Survive the Undead is an all new, endless, round-based horde mode. Made with Halo Infinite's Forge tool, it takes full advantage of Halo's sandbox and gives players a PvE experience they haven't seen in Halo before.” – The Forge Falcons

When your friend group is all strongly Forge-inclined and talented, you wind up with something like the Forge Falcons. Entirely community driven, this crew dreams big and makes magic happen with the power of Halo Infinite’s Forge. If you can dream it up, they can make it happen—they are absolute wizards with Forge! Their hard work has earned them a well-deserved spot in matchmaking.

Objective: SURVIVE

The Forge Falcons’ exciting PvE experience, Survive the Undead, arrives in the Combat Workshop today! For the next two weeks, you’ll be able to jump in and put your survival skills to the test in this 100% community created mode.

Survive the Undead meshes the Halo Firefight experience with the fan-favorite COD Zombies mode resulting in fast paced, intense, and sometimes spooky gameplay. As we learned in Reach, the objective is to “survive,” and you want to do that by any means necessary. Earn points to buy upgrades, grab perks, or chance it all on a mystery box. Maybe it’ll help, maybe it’ll set you back—the thrill is in the risk!

As a note, while waiting to respawn, make sure to wiggle your sticks to keep from getting kicked for inactivity.

The Combat Workshop is your one-shop stop to check out work-in-progress maps, modes, and other new experiences. This playlist allows us to test out new modes (BTB Heavies), new features (new networking model), and get feedback at scale before taking that information back and iterating on it. From there, we can address issues and community feedback to get things ready for primetime matchmaking.

This playlist will be up for two weeks and we want your feedback. Check back later for the link to the survey, or follow the QR code that will appear in-game later this week.
