343's Studio Head Josh Holmes talks about the balance between visual fidelity, clarity and frame-rate. Holmes also stated that the next big-content reveal for Halo 5 will be at the E3 2015.
I'm expecting this game to be the big, flagship title for Microsoft at E3. I'm also betting we'll get a Halo 5 bundle, which is almost confirmed. But what I'd really like to go along with it is a fixed / updated version of Master Chief collection with all the massive patches and fixes included in the new package.
You mean an ultimate edition for The MCC alongside a Halo 5 Xbox One bundle? The Halo 5 bundle was recently confirmed by 343. Unfortunately not showed yet. Of course Halo has always been Xbox's flagship I.P. Starting on the original Xbox to the 360 and now the Xbox One.
Like all games this gen if you want 1080p it won't hit a locked 60fps (it's very hard) Forza 5 did it but I guess it would be easier for racing games. But what's more important is the framerate so I will be more than happy for halo 5 to be 900p/60fps. The beta looked amazing the effects were top notch so if it's anything like the Beta then I'm a very happy man :)
Yes, if it's visual fidelity from the new rendering features in Dx12, then no doubt it should be a gorgeous game performing very smoothly. Scale, high texture detail at 60 frame rates should be amazing!
Wait, isn't this for all exclusive titles like this? Aren't all exclusives optimized to their console's capabilities? How is this somehow not known? Did people think Halo 5 would finally be that one title that would not utilize what it could of the Xbox One?
The title is a bit weird.
@christopher the answer to your questions is in your actions. Did you click on the article and read it? If you did, then you know why they titled it the way they did...if you didn't then their title didn't work. In related but unrelated news... Uncharted 4 will be optimized for the PS4 **click here**
I read the article, but, honestly, the title is just too dumb for me to comprehend why they didn't put something more meaningful there. I mean, even something like "Halo 5 to deliver more detail" or the like would make more sense than what was utilized and would get just as many hits.
In all honesty I just titled it this way in line with what Josh Holmes said. Not intended to cause confusion or anything. Feel free to edit the title to something more suitable if needed. Apologies though.
The title is actually perfect. I read the article. It basically talks about optimization. So I don't see what's wrong with it or why you're apologizing. --- The underlying issue here is probably because the article is about Halo and Xbox ONE
No the underlying issue is ... No shit Microsoft's biggest franchise in their history will be optimized for their system. We wouldn't expect anything else.
Don't take this the wrong way. But you really need to proof read that article. It's kind of a mess.
***The underlying issue here is probably because the article is about Halo and Xbox ONE*** How does that make any sense? At what point did I say anything negative about the Xbox One or Halo 5?
"Halo 5 Will Be Optimized To Xbox One Capabilities" well, ofc it will be, it's xbone exclusive after all...
Water is wet.. news at 11.
i'd honestly have 900p unconverted with amazing special effects than to lose some of that and get 1080p
There is know way Halo 5 will be 1080p 60 frames if its a directx11 game not happening. I'm betting it will be 900p and 60frames when it releases.
Halo 5 Will Be Optimized To Xbox One Capabilities, it's only being build for xbone so yeah............... anway I don't see a true 1080/60fps with a lot going on, onscreen.it's ashame really but oh well, I'll be at least renting it.
What are you going to play it on, though?
wow an xbone exclusive developer is trying to optimise their game for xbones capabilities? that is unheard of. why didnt anyone think of that before?
But £200 for the GAME exclusive copy of the GAME.... No thanks.
I'm playing the master chief collection at the moment & that's not optimized for the Xbox One. When I'm in the wide open driving a warthog the framerate is choppy. I try to ignore it, but it's not stable. It's a real shame. I am now on Halo 2 after finishing Halo CE & even that I'm feeling the floating framerate. I'm not holding much hope for Halo 5 unless this game is just badly ported over. By the way I love playing the MCC & I can put up with it, but it's just a shame.
I had none of these mentioned issues, the only problems I had were the old engine working at 60fps made animations a bit funky occasionally
Its not all the time, but when it does it its very noticeable. When i first noticed it was when i very first got in the warthog. There's no way its a steady 60fps, but it doesn't put me off the game. It's an amazing collection & I'm having a blast going through the whole story again, but its definitely got some framerate issues.
