The month of Christmas is upon us once again, even if the day itself has passed. A time of joy, laughter, overeating, annoying relatives, and the unstoppable deluge of formula-based Christmas movies. However, there is one Christmas movie which stands out among these mass-produced flicks; one that is so good on its own that some people don't even consider it a Christmas movie. It breaks the formula with its unforgettable sequences, memorable characters, and iconic location. You know the one – Die Hard.
Speaking of the iconic location, Nakatomi Plaza is considered a pilgrimage site for fans of the movie, and it has made its way to Halo Infinite thanks to its Forge mode. Creator Bearly Legal took great pains in making Faux Plaza look like the building from the movie (thanks PCGamesN). You'll come across familiar locations like the rock fountain, the meeting rooms, the stairwell, the area where the hostages were kept, and even the Nakatomi Plaza logo.
While the trailer shows that you'll be able to access the elevator shafts, it doesn't look like you'll be able to crawl through the vents like John McClane, or send enemies flying out the window like Hans Gruber. Thankfully, everyone will be wearing Mjolnir armor, so you won't have to worry about the shards of glass all over the place.
With Halo Infinite's Forge mode up and running, players have been making tons of amazing maps – and as is the norm with this mode, Spartans get to battle it out in iconic video game locations. Hopefully, this mode will be enough to boost the game's player count, which has been dwindling as a result of the snail-paced content rollout for multiplayer.
Speaking of new content, last year we reported that Microsoft had filed a patent for Halo: The Endless. While details are scarce, Halo Infinite's ending teased a looming threat that's said to be "worse than the Flood". While not much has happened on that front, it appears that the patent has now been disputed by Paris based indie studio, Amplitude Studios. The studio feels the patent infringes upon its properties, which include Endless Dungeon, Endless Space, Endless Legend, Dungeon of the Endless, and Endless Space 2.
