Youtube Xbox Series X PC Xbox One

We were wondering when Halo Infinite would reveal some single player footage after last year's fiasco but the wait is finally over. Microsoft and 343 Industries indeed released a brand new trailer showcasing some pretty nice action-packed gameplay. We're not too fond of the slow speed of the grappling hook but other than that, the video makes us want to pick up the controller and play, which is always a good sign right? Until we can find out if this new episode will deliver, here's the Youtube version of the trailer which came out earlier today.

It looks improved for sure, but something about the rendering engine, and the way it interacts with the lighting, isn't meshing for me. Asset density is also a bit lacking. Still, it looks nice enough and looks like it plays well!

Graphically it look weak as hell. Like holy shit this is the big MS first party game and it looks like this?

They made a poor choice focusing on that specific biome (much like recent BTB beta) which tend to look "washed" 90% of the time. The behemoth map art direction would've suit their SP ambition and certainly is much more pleasing to the eye overall.

visually looks like they're trying to be faithful to the original, maybe too faithful

Looks much better than last year. This will probably be the funnest and best playing game this year.

I think the graphics aren't next gen. But when the gameplay and story is fun, I don't care about that.
I had a blast with the previous Halo games and I will give this a try, too.

this. the game was bashed to hell and back for its weak 343 visuals capability ("HD towns are hard, you know?" excuse) in the current age, but the fact they went to the backburner to solidify the campaign, menas its the FPS GOTY, bar none. who else? killzone: vapoware? farcry X? ...


Maybe some of those insane tech powerhose indies may wows and overshadow the weak affair of halo tech, like Atomid Heart or something... if they actually came out.

The only thing really "bad" about halo infine, is that its the reflection of the current standard Sony helped shitsolidify with most of their successful current first party outputs. Loot/quest open-world whoreing. Can 343 beat the weak formula? Doubt.
