Halo Infinite mid-season updates improve anti-cheat and add LAN feature – full patch notes

Microsoft has released a series of updates for Halo Infinite since it debuted last month. The most recent update, which is available now on PC and Xbox One, brings with it some much-anticipated changes to the game’s anti-cheat system and adds a LAN mode that allows players to play together outside their local area networks.

The “halo infinite news” is a recent update to the game. The updates have improved anti-cheat and added LAN support.

There’s a lot going on in Halo Infinite right now. The co-op mode was pushed back from the start of Season Two, but it’s still coming. Meanwhile, the game won a number of awards at the 2021 Video Game Accessibility Awards.

343 Industries, the game’s creator, offers a double dose of updates for the newest Halo game today, March 14. The first is a patch that fixes two remaining issues: it improves PC stability and offers a way to connect to LAN servers from the game’s menus. On PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One, the update is merely “600 MB or less.”

The other upgrade, at 1.3 GB, is approximately twice as hefty. This is the mid-season update for Season One, delivering a bevy of new features and bug fixes. Before detailing the patch details, the blog post outlines some of the adjustments, including improved cheat detection and anti-cheat implementation – Easy Anti-Cheat is, in fact, why the game isn’t on Steam Deck. Smoother first-person animations and enhancements to Quick Resume are also included. The entire patch notes may be seen below.
