After Bungie left to do their own thing, the reins of the Halo franchise were given to 343 Industries by Microsoft. Starting from Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, the company has made all the mainline games of the series. So, how did they fare compared to Bungie? Not well, to be honest. Halo was at its peak when Bungie surrendered the series to Microsoft due to a previous deal. When 343 took over, it started to fall in terms of story structure and the overall narrative.
The announcement of a new mainline Halo game during E3 2018, was met with much fanfare and excitement from the fans. Players were waiting to see their favorite hero, Master Chief duking it out again after so many years. And with the game being described as an open-world game, hopes were hanging high. Halo Infinite saw its release on Windows and Xbox consoles on December 8, 2021. The game was received well by the players and critics alike. Overall a good comeback for the franchise. Besides its campaign, Halo Infinite is widely known for its fun multiplayer. And the game did ship with one. However, there’s a question going around regarding players being able to play the game offline or not. So, we have decided to answer those questions for you.
Can You Play Halo Infinite Offline With Bots?
Halo Infinite has two modes – Campaign and Multiplayer. First, let’s talk about the Campaign mode. Players would be happy to know that, Halo Infinite supports offline play in the campaign mode. Although, you may need to have an internet connection to update the game. The rest of the game can be played from start to finish offline.
Now, when it comes to multiplayer, it is quite complicated. You see, 343 Industries did allow playing against bots, however, if you enter the game now, you will not be able to do that. Why? Because that mode, known as Bot Bootcamp which allowed you and your crew to go against bots, was recently removed by 343 in the Winter update. So, sadly no bot plays for you at this time. However, you can access the Custom Game menu and play the game with bots, offline.
