The Halo 4 Infinity Challenge on Xbox LIVE brings gamers the biggest and most accessible Halo tournament in the world! This free-to-enter tournament will track your personal score in War Games and the number of Spartan Ops chapters you complete on global leaderboards, giving all players regardless of preferences or skill level a shot at more than 2,800 prizes. The War Games leaderboard winner will walk away with a UNSC-themed, 2013 V8-powered Ford F-150 SVT Raptor truck, or an alternate prize of $25,000. The Spartan Ops leaderboard winner will secure an appearance in a future Halo game.
During the Qualifier phase (December 17, 2012, at 12:00 AM EST to January 10, 2013, at 11:59:59 PM EST), competitors will climb the ranks by competing in either the Spartan Ops or War Games leaderboards. The Qualifier phase will result in three tiers of players: Tier 1: the top 10% of players competing; Tier 2: the next 11%-40% of players competing; and Tier 3: the last 60% of players competing.
The Finals phase will start on January 12 and end on January 19. During the Finals phase, the leaderboards will be reset and prizes will be awarded to the top performers in each tier. While terrific prizes are available within all three tiers, the grand prizes will be offered exclusively to those who have battled their way to Tier 1.
Players can also participate in Weekly Challenges found at www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/intel/challenges for a chance to win more great prizes.
This week’s featured playlist is Infinity Slayer, which mixes the standard Slayer experience of past Halo titles with a variety of new features. Players who use teamwork to win their matches will likely win faster and have a higher average score than those who don’t, so I’d recommend searching with friends or using a mic to communicate whenever possible. Infinity Slayer will allow party sizes of up to four players this week. Also, be sure to go for all the bonus points you can, including assists, distractions, multikills, sprees, and more.
The regular Infinity Slayer playlist has been replaced by the Infinity Challenge playlist this week. The settings have not changed, but you’ll now be competing against one another for the top spot on the War Games leaderboard. Note that you do not have to participate in the Infinity Challenge in order to play in the Infinity Slayer playlist.
