The first crossover between Halo Infinite and the new Paramount show.

Halo Infinite will soon feature six rewards based on the Halo TV series, marking the first crossover with the Paramount Plus show. The free-to-play multiplayer shooter will offer various tie-in rewards from May 10, inspired by events of the inaugural season. The rewards will be available for a limited time to anyone who logs into Halo Infinite during the promotion.

The Halo TV series has launched into Paramount Plus, with its first season comprised of nine episodes released on a weekly basis. The show was renewed for a second season in February, followed by a premiere setting viewership records for the Paramount streaming service. While Microsoft had always envisioned Halo heading to the big screen, the Halo TV series emerged this March, overcoming almost a decade of production hurdles.

Halo’s TV debut diverges from the events of the mainline Halo games, exploring an alternate “Silver Timeline,” loosely based on the existing universe. 343 Industries has now added rewards based on events from Season 1, including four emblems and two weapon charms. These cosmetics will be available via the Halo Infinite multiplayer on console and PC, as detailed via a new Halo Waypoint blog post.

Halo Infinite recently received its Season 2 update, the first major update to the title, following its launch back in December 2021. Season 2 embraces a “Lone Wolves” theme, adding two new multiplayer maps and various game types, including a high-stakes battle royale-inspired mode. Interference, the latest limited-time Halo Infinite event also runs through May 16, with ten exclusive rewards up for grabs.

The Halo TV series is available via Paramount Plus in supported regions, with the first episode also available for free via YouTube.
