I wonder what the final resolution will be.

I'm guessing 900p/60fps which will be perfect as framerate is key.

Volkama2965d ago

It is dynamic at the moment, and will probably stay that way unless they can hit the 1080p console ceiling.

Digital Foundry suggest the current implementation of scaling is working well.

Agreed, iam thinking native 1080p 30fps for cutscenes then 900p 60fps for game play!
I think its awesome looking as is, the beta looked great and ran well and that was 720p 60fps upscalled to 1080p 60fps.

The full game will also scale up to 1080p 60fps during game play like all 360/and some x1 games so i dont see any issue.
They may go the advanced warfare on x1 route to limit scaling artifacts.

Fact is after playing halo 1 to 4 at 1080p 60fps (mostly) on x1 u just cant go back to 30fps!
whenever i play halo mcc then switch to destiny (allthough destiny is by far the best implementation of a 30fps shooter ever) it still feels terrible by comparison.

I wish more devs would make 60fps a priority! maybe destiny 2 will be 60fps if they leave last gen behind?
Either way this fall Halo 5 is my most anticipated fps and will be my go to online shooter till a proper battlefield game is released.

It isnt visually impressive, so might as well be 1080.

You troll too much....didnt we speak about this, the other day, dimitri? You dont own an dont play FPS games ( you told me this yourself)...yet you are in every other halo and xbox related article trolling. I think you have issues and need to seek help. This is ALL you do. Its like you have this weird fixation with hating on all things xbox, just for the sake of it. you bring nothing to the discussion. You dont enlighten anybody with any factual just...troll. You used to annoy me but now I just I feel sorry for you.

@ FlexLuger

He's a fanboy troll, just like RocketScienceLvlStuff, GameNameFame, Cindy-rella, Walker, and probably more.

They have dedicated their spare time to invade articles about platforms they don't even own or have no interest of (especially Xbox), and their wet dream is for Sony to monopolize the industry.

They also pray to Sony every morning and every night before bed.

Isn't there a PS article somewhere to keep you entertained? Why keep coming into xbox articles to troll? Don't you ever get tired of it?and its the same BS comments over and ove again. Its quite pathetic and boring now.


Well said.

Who cares? It looks AMAZING, and based on recent screenshots it looks like it will be one of the best looking games out there regardless of Res....just keep the FPS solid.

JWiLL5522965d ago

It doesn't seem like they're going for "best looking game out there" this time around, honestly.

They've prioritized framerate over visuals/effects. Nothing wrong with that in a competitive multiplayer game, but maybe not what people expect from a new Halo title.

Julion07152965d ago

Who cares about the final res how about you wonder how fun and how much depth the game will have smh ppl care about the wrong things now days

Why are they even running these tests on an unfinished game? I haven't seen this for any other games before they release.

Skate-AK2965d ago

They do it with other games. Assassins Creed Unity for example.

Is is good Mr. O'CONNER stays cool with all those attacks and continue to work on his vision of the game with his team. Some of the comments over at neogaf are just toxic to say the least. This game will be great comes October and I'll be at my man cave playing it.
