Infection is returning to Halo 5

343 Industries has confirmed that the fan-favourite mode will be added in the upcoming ‘Memories of Reach’ update.

Previously featured in Halo 3 and Halo: Reach, Infection has players trying to stay alive as long as possible against infected enemies.

If you die, you’re infected, joining the neverending army of zombies roaming the match. It’s silly, fast-paced fun, and a perfect fit for Halo 5: Guardians.
