With the next chapter of the Halo series finally launching its single player campaign this week on PC and consoles simultaneously, we thought it would be interesting to see/revisit how many of us still play the single player campaigns of popular FPS titles, and whether there is any excitement for the Halo Infinite campaign.
The debate mainly comes around the fact that many multiplayer-focused games that launched without a single player campaign have garnered significant controversy around the decision, despite the most popular aspect of those games always being the multiplayer. Battlefield 2042 comes to mind as a recent example of that.
The truth is that you’d think with less time spent on a campaign and more time spent on the multiplayer (which is where the majority of players will spend their time anyway) it would result in better quality all-round, but that certainly isn’t the case for Battlefield at the moment. Plus, the argument of less content = less value, which in turn should mean a cheaper product, usually comes up at the same time.
Obviously this mainly concerns games where the multiplayer part is the most popular, like Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Halo to name a few. Of course games like DOOM Eternal are built for the campaign, and the multiplayer is simply an added feature. Whereas nowadays that seems to be flipped round.
So with Halo Infinite’s campaign finally coming out this week, will you be getting it? Or is the free-to-play Halo Infinite Multiplayer portion more enticing to you? Do you enjoy having single player campaigns for popular multiplayer FPS titles? Or are you not bothered when they are left out? Let's debate!
