Revealed as part of ongoing coverage of Halo Infinite of IGN, more details have been released about a certain character known as Jega ‘Rdomani, an assassin of Spartans determined to finish off the Master Chief.

In a conversation with IGN, associate creative director Paul Crocker explained Jega’s place in the world. While the formerly seen alien race known as the Banished will be the main antagonists, Jega is here to make the Master Chief’s day a little more difficult.

It is said that Jega will be an “Elite wielding a double red plasma sword”, which was quickly unveiled during gameplay of the latest Halo Infinite campaign. players can wait some difficult encounters with the boss during the runtime of the campaign.

“One of the things we try to do with Jega was to make him the most frightening and disturbing character that once existed in Halo,” said associate creative director Paul Crocker. “Every time you see him… he looks at things like prey. The whole experience of how he plays with the Chief is just… how he is. ”

Halo franchise narrative writer Jeff Easterling also said that Jega is “Escharum’s subtle helper”, the Banished boss we’ve seen in previous gameplay demos, and they have a close relationship.

“We wanted to build a character to be more like a kind of subtle sidekick to Escarum. They have the closest relationship; they’ve been working together longer. [Jega] he is your most respected soldier, your closest friend. whole group [de Spartan Killers] it is a showcase of the power of the Banished. They are not only promoting the cause of the Banished, but also inspiring all the troops below them. “

Seeing Master Chief and Jega face off will hopefully create some captivating moments and push players to their limits in terms of gameplay. We saw some boss footage in the campaign overview where enemies display health bars, but hopefully it will be an interesting fight between the two.
