E3 2019E3 2019It's time for the biggest gaming show of the year. We've got articles, videos, podcasts and maybe even a GIF or two.

Microsoft finally showed off some more footage for Halo Infinite—a weighty name for the sixth major game in the 18-year-old franchise. Halo Infinite will launch on Windows 10, Xbox One and Xbox’s newly-announced Project Scarlett console fall, 2020.

Rightfully so, Halo fans were very curious about what the actual game would look like. Today’s trailer was still more CGI animation, and this time, featured an apparently stranded UNSC soldier on a space ship reanimating the Master Chief. We didn’t get a look at the gameplay, unfortunately:

Microsoft’s January announcement trailer for Halo Infinite was a little nature documentary-meets co-op shooter, complete with ambient violin sounds and birds-eye-view shots of stampeding rhinos. 343 Studios is making the game, which studio head Bonnie Ross said in an interview with IGN is a “spiritual reboot.”

Today’s E3 Halo Infinite trailer didn’t offer much in the way of lore, either. At its end, Cortana’s voice says, “I chose you because you were special.” What could it mean?

Yeah, I don’t really care. That did nothing for me and I really like the Halo games (I’m one of he few who enjoyed Guardians narratively).

After how many years since Guardians the most we get is some ONI operative trapped on a Pelican for some amount of time...

They really needed at least a brief 2 minute demo of some gameplay, something previous games have done 18 months before.
