Start of the Mindfall event | gloriole
Season 3 of Halo infinity is here and the Mindfall narrative event has begun!
The Mindfall event, running from March 7th to March 21st, offers a free 10-tier event pass with a variety of cosmetics to outfit your new MIRAGE IIC armor core, as well as new cinematics.
For those who need a recap of what happened in Season 2: Lone Wolves…
At the beginning of the 2nd season of Halo infinity, the academy received some unexpected guests. The Spartan Sigrid Eklund emerged from a commanded phantom with an unconscious Spartan Hieu Dinh, whose life has been endangered by the malicious exiled AI named Iratus residing in his neural interface.
Season 3: Echoes Within picks this up, kicking off with the Mindfall event, which explores a pivotal moment in Spartan Dinh’s past as Iratus loots his mind.
Mindfall is the first of two narrative-driven events as Site Unseen will wrap up the Season 3 storyline from May 2nd to May 16th (and bring with it another free 10-stage event pass featuring new MIRAGE IIC cosmetics and additional cinematics) .
For additional story elements, stay tuned for Season 3 Intel Drops (lands here on Halo Waypoint and in-game), Fracture: FIREWALL’s upcoming story shards, and your regular monthly issues of Canon Fodder.
