One of Halo’s toy partner companies, Mega Construx, has revealed a brand new Covenant Hunter minifigure as part of a sneak peek of a Pelican set that’s slated to come later this year. The Hunter has a black and red color scheme, and its Fuel Rod Cannon also features a blood-red coloration instead of the typical green. You can take a look at the figure below:
If the Banished do appear in Halo Infinite, it’s unclear whether they would be the primary enemies of the game or if they would be more of a side faction. Regardless, the possibility of the Banished entering the spotlight once again is very likely considering one of the Guardians from Halo 5 made an appearance in the final moments of the Halo Wars 2 campaign, suggesting that the spinoff RTS title would be linked to the mainline games in some way. Ultimately, only time will tell if the Banished will be a part of Halo Infinite, but so far it looks like they’re likely to be.
If the Banished were in Halo Infinite, would you be happy or disappointed? Do you hope to see more of the faction leader, Atriox? Let us know.
Halo Wars 2 is available now for $40 on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.
