Something for the Weekend – 20/11/21

Halo Infinite Multiplayer Progression Header

While last week was super busy, this week has felt a bit more slow paced in the gaming world, despite there being lots of big news stories and big game releases. Some of that came from the 20th anniversary Xbox event where Microsoft released the Halo Infinite multiplayer a few weeks ahead of schedule. A great surprise!

Elsewhere, Formula 1 is in Qatar this weekend for the final race of the triple header we’ve been enjoying. It really looks like the championship is going to go down to the wire, even though Verstappen still has a bit of a points cushion. Have you tried out the new circuit in F1 2021 yet?
