A Halo Infinite Forge map gives you yet another excuse to bring up the “Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?” debate with a spectacular recreation of the Nakatomi Plaza high-rise in the Microsoft and 343 Industries sci-fi FPS game. That’s right, you can now take on your pals in high-octane Halo action across the famous halls where John McClane crushed Hans Gruber in the 1988 classic film.
The Halo Infinite Forge map ‘Faux Plaza’ is created by Bearskopff, who says that this is the first Forge map they have built-in Halo Infinite. It’s a rather spectacular effort, centered around the main plaza area where the hostages are held during the main segment of the film. The map offers a beautiful take on the fountain gardens, while service stairs allow easy access to the upstairs.
You can get up into the elevator shaft and examine the vents, of course, in case you’ve ever wondered what a TV dinner feels like. Though maybe Spartans are used to enclosed spaces. Overall, it’s an excellent recreation that does a fantastic job of capturing the look and dimensions from the film– all that’s missing is the body of a Banished scribbled with the words, “Now I have a Needler. Ho, ho, ho.”
You can watch the trailer for ‘Faux Plaza’ below, which is followed by some comparison shots to show its recreations of famous moments from the movie along with gameplay of the map in action.
The Halo Infinite ‘Faux Plaza’ can be found over at Halo Waypoint. Bearskopff has even made an additional mode designed to help you re-enact the heroics of everyone’s favorite NYPD hero and wannabe cowboy.
