Halo Infinite tease confirms The Banished as an enemy faction

The official Halo Twitter account just revealed a short tease for Halo Infinite: an intercepted audio transmission that teases one of the enemy factions.

It seems The Banished are very mad about humanity this time around and they’re looking for control of the rings. The faction previously appeared in Halo Wars 2 and hasn’t been seen in the main Halo series so far.

The Banished are a mercenary faction that splintered off from the main Covenant force after a short rebellion. They’re more ruthless and they sound pretty angry. Check out the tease below:

If you think they sound menacing, you should listen to the pug 343 used to record some of the alien noises in Halo Infinite. A pug! I know!

This latest tease comes ahead of a proper look at Halo Infinite next month.
