Official Halo Twitter Account confirms Free-to-Play and 120FPS Support

"Halo is for everyone. We can confirm #HaloInfinite multiplayer will be free-to-play and will support 120FPS on Xbox Series X. More details will be shared later!"

Asuka1392d ago

Ok this is awesome. 120fps on console is gonna be insane.

Yi-Long1392d ago

I rather have stunningly gorgeous graphics and effects instead of sacrificing good stuff just so they can hit 120fps ...

Asuka1392d ago (Edited 1392d ago )

To each their own. I would rather lower resolution and higher fps in a shooter especially for multiplayer.

Vegamyster1392d ago

If you have a setup that supports it then it’s a good trade off, I’m set on my PC but I haven’t looked into how many TVs support higher frame rates, hopefully they include some options for higher fidelity on console for those with 60hz panels.

MadLad1392d ago

Because 120fps isn't "good stuff"
Have fun at 30fps then, as blurry as it is.

The game will have different graphical options to choose from. I'm sure they are well aware not everyone has the right tv for 120fps.

bouzebbal1392d ago (Edited 1392d ago )

120fps waste of resources and bad prioritizing.. Focus on 4k 60fps and good graphics.. Free to play will hurt the franchise imo

"This will attract hordes of PC gamers to Halo."

It's already coming to PC, and PC gamers don't have a framerate cap, lol..

darthv721392d ago

@Yi... well in the case of this game, you get both. 4k 60fps for SP and 4k 120fps for MP.

And yes i do mean what I say. People dont really think the game is going to ship just like the demo do they???

crazyCoconuts1392d ago

They didn't say, but they'll probably have different settings is my guess

King_Noctis1392d ago

Clearly you don’t play alot of shooter if you prioritize graphic over fps.

anubusgold1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

@bouzebbal Go listen to the ps4 fanboys crying not to be matched with pc players on call of duty with 120 fps lol. They are crying its not fair they have faster response times lock them to 90 fps they are crying on the forums about it lol. So they got activison to let them turn it off.

Xavi4K1391d ago

for competitive FPS graphic isn't very important take CS as an example

PurpHerbison1391d ago

We have had two generations now where devs went graphics over performance and I'm over of it. Tired of the sluggish console games. Make 120fps the standard.

itsmebryan1391d ago

You will have to wait and see what the difference is. I think you would notice more in single player because you have more time to take in the scenery. In a multi player it's more fast pace because you are trying to avoid getting killed by other players.

I’m assuming this is for multiplayer only. That’s how I read the quote:
“multiplayer will be free-to-play and will support 120FPS ”

Still a nice feature.

DJStotty1390d ago

You will never have stunningly gorgeous graphics in competitive multiplayer, you need frame rate over anything else.

anubusgold1388d ago

The only thing ps5 has is a tech demo and we havent forgot the so call toy story graphics of ps 3 tech demo that never happened lol

The only issue I see with this is that the vast majority of 4KTVs don’t even support 120Hz. Great for those gaming on a monitor or capable TV.

ForwardDude1392d ago

Also higher frame rate give a huge advantage in multiplayer as per Linus Tech tips video.

Bruh1392d ago

Most of the Samsung QLEDs all have 120Hz panels, this is also the case for LG OLED and Sony OLED TVs as well. Granted these are higher end TV's, but they also aren't in insane price ranges where it can't be a purchase this holiday

Skate-AK1392d ago

I think it is getting more popular. I bought a Vizio P55 F1 almost three years ago and it has 120fps support on one of the hdmi.

edwardmde1391d ago

@Bruh there is a large number of 120hz panels yes.

The problem is unless you specifically bought a 120hz TV in the past 18 months or so with HDMI 2.1 features then they will only supports 120fps up to 1080p, not 4K.

anubusgold1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

I went back to 60fps and i got motion sick from how slow and unsmooth it was compared to 165+ screens and i dont get motion sick, you cant go back once you see it.

Kaze881391d ago

@edwardmde many tv's do not have native 120hz and also as you mentioned, specially not in 4K. Only if you have bought highend tv past two years you are good. If no, then you would need to buy a new one.

Problem with this is that a lot of console owners play on TV. And a lot of them at 60-90hz. So they are taking a hot graphically for a group that really won't get to utilize the FPS. Also I feel bad for the 60 fps players when they go head to head with the 120 fps players.

KaladinStormblessed1392d ago

It won’t be that bad, 60 vs 120 isn’t nearly as big a difference than 30 to 60. At that point the only main difference is the slight input advantage. Considering halo isn’t an esports style shooter where literally every frame can make a difference (for the pros), I think it’ll work out just fine

KaladinStormblessed1392d ago (Edited 1392d ago )

It’s funny cuz everyvery one was complaining that people should focus more on getting FPS up rather than just improving the graphics and then someone finally makes that possible with still improved graphics (might not be pushing the generation graphically but still an upgrade) people are saying to focus more on graphics and not FPS...

I think this is great news, it’ll be so buttery smooth
