Halo fans, 343 Industries has finally given us our first look at Halo Infinite multiplayer gameplay! There's a new story trailer released too.
The trailer was more focused on showing off the microtransactions than the actual gameplay. They also dodged showing more campaign footage, that's not a good sign. Disappointing.
“ The trailer was more focused on showing off the microtransactions” What? In what way?
It was so badly cut that it was hard to take in any real gameplay. But they did make sure to get a good shot of that Samurai outfit at the end. It's free to play, and the presentation made it clear that this is a trailer for season 1. Just look at the video thumbnail - it's exactly how Fortnite advertises it's costumes. I may have been fine with all this, but the little gameplay we did see was less than impressive. The new Battlefield was miles more impressive.
EmperorDalek They're doing a full overview tomorrow of the multiplayer, I'd hardly consider 2-3 seconds of Samurai armour that looks like it might just be an updated version of the popular Hayabusa armour from Halo 3 a focus on microtransactions when the rest of the trailer was quickly going over new weapons/abilities.
Supply drops, all that colorful armor, different kinds of takedowns.
Nothing will change other than the map pop-ins. What was shown last year is still the core game...
“ How is it free? ” from your other comment. They announced the multiplayer of Halo Infinite will be free to play
The game is free. Sorry you may have to pay a dollar for an optional skin or something. :P
How is it free? You either pay a monthly fee to access it or you purchase it. Depending on how much you play defines the value of either way. The idiocy of the sales pitch of “free” makes me shake my head with no hope.
@Rude-ro "How is it free? You either pay a monthly fee to access it or you purchase it." False information at it's finest :- 1) MP is F2P, silver membership required, no monthly fee, free of charge 2) SP is all you pay for, either via Gamepass monthly sub, or physical/digital release £59.99
Deep dive on multiplayer is tomw, go read halo waypoint before coming to piss on everyone’s parade.
Im not even a halo fan and i thought the mp gameplay trailer was excellent. blowing up weapons with grenades to pop them in the air to grab them is freaking sweet. along with the grappling hook mechanics paired with what seems to be old-school halo gameplay that made the series popular is pretty great.
Looked significantly better in 4k
Not really. It’s improved but not by much. Still unimpressed. Forza Horizon 5 was easily the best looking game.
Forza is striving to be photo-realistic, Halo isn't. Halo has its own art style that's somewhere between real and cartoon. Always has, (except 4/5 which unfortunately broke toward more real, even though 4 was an amazing game).
Agree. Forza was the only next gen gameplay trailer. Halo isnt. Dont care if its running at 240 frames. Those graphics arent next gen. Gameplay should be great. But grapics wise is average
Like is said before, and i do wish people will take it in. Halo has never been the showcase of an xbox's capability Forza is the showcase, as was the same this year.
"Halo has never been the showcase of an xbox's capability" the first one sure was. anyways, Halos graphics are kinda weak, but thats OK! the game looks fun! the excuse that its just the "style" of halo is kind of silly when cartoony games that look better than anything else exist (Ratchet and Clank, I mean holy cow). still, this halo looks like a ton of fun. -PS5/PC gamer
Literally ANY game looks better in 4K. Tetris is still Tetris even if it looks great in 4K
Tetris is incredible. Good shout out.
You wont believe how good it looks in 8K
I was under the impression this game was running on the most bestest pooweful console ever to exist in this universe and all the multiverses and it was supposed to be reworked to look even "better" than last year. I guess when Phil Spencer said it was going to be amazing last year before that horrendous trailer, and the internet disagreed, he believed his own words. Much like him saying he just simply releases the most and highest quality games of any publisher. Forza looked good though.
It's a game also being built to run on 8 year old console hardware and minimum spec PCs...but you already know that don't you?
Yeah, a guy with 343 in the name. Ok.. In all seriousness, of course I know that. Horizon forbidden west also runs on a ps4. Miles morales ran on ps4. Look at GoT and the last of us 2 from last year. The point is, you don't go out there shouting from every rooftop in the world about power and graphics and 4k and when the games you show look just alright, you get a pass. Not in my eyes. All that smack talk they did for the past 3-4 years about power and graphics and the cloud and this is what we see.
And neither are 60 fps or feature dozens of player controlled characters. Different games.
@343_Guilty_Spark Stop spreading misinformation. Both GoT and TLoU2 are 60 FPS on PS5, so you're sadly mistaken there. OT, I think what MS showed off of the HI MP looked pretty good. And this is coming from a longtime Halo fan who played CE and H2 quite a bit back in the day.
Its the problems of doing pr talk since december of 2019 about power and 12 teraflops...
Show me a mp cross gen shooter running at 120 that look better. Don't worry ill wait
Obviously I don't know about the final product, but the trailer didn't even look better than Destiny 2. And that's a game that came out in 2017, is cross gen, and supports 120fps.
Call of duty and destiny off the top of my head.
Stop the cap Destiny and CoD look no where close.
Man you and other graphic snobs are unbearable. Like dude the game looks fine, it doesn’t look bad by any means. Could it look better? Yes, but why? It literally is a fast pace shooter than you are running around or driving around in about 95% of the time. So is the texture on the grass, walls, trees, ect bad? In my opinion, as a gamer foucused in having fun, no it’s not bad. I just wanna have a fun and honest halo experience. What was shown today leads most people to believe that this is halo being halo. Only complaint that affects gameplay that I can see is that they scrapped red v blue, but that’s okay.
Bro these are open world games. Not single player linear. Graphics will always take a hit.
GoT wasn't single player linear. It had a multiplayer option too that came out after launch for free. Open world beautiful game than ran on the base 1.84 TF ps4. Where's xbox's excuse from running halo infinite on an in engine ultimate PC build? The series X is a 12 TF beast apparently. 6 times the power of the base ps4 and still has worse graphics. You know I'm only talking smack because Phil Spencer has a big mouth and lies and slanders playstation.
Thanks for your comment Sony bot. So helpful.
I thought they nailed the classic Halo play and really evolved the play mechanics. The grappler should provide alot of variations in multiplayer. The one thing I didn't catch was the launch date. Really looking forward to playing it.
Can not wait! Time to fire up co-op MC Collection and co-op the campaigns, yet again. (7th time)
Actually looks really great,surprising how open and detailed the environment is great job to 343. Fans of the series won't have anything negative to say about the visuals, that could have made the world half the size and pushed more realistic graphics, but looks like they made the right call.
Gameplay wise looks amazing. Graphically good. Not incredible. It's fine.
microsoft did great today its their best e3 since a long time, Halo looks great and seems fun i will play it in lunch its too bad that community is filled with hate to Xbox brand but today games looks great and its says xbox is back
It looks ok - for an f2p game i guess, not aaa though. This was the first time in years i didn't watch the conference just for the laughs, but in exception of a good or even great showcase. But it was a huge disappointment.
The video won’t ever load maybe it’s better that way
Load of crap
Doesn't this game run at 120fps?...that might explain the downgrade in graphics........hmmmm.
I really cant understand how 343 can do better with a machine that got 12 teraflops.... Did this trailer hyped anyone? After 6 years and more then 500 millions budget. Cant understand...
Where are you getting that 500 million dollar budget from? Please show me a source from reputable site ?
Gameplay wise this looks incredible as a Halo fan. Graphics look as good or better than previous Halo multiplayers. They're not amazing but they're good.
1 it's 120fps. I guess you'd rather take a graphics bump. 2. It's a 10 year long game that budget has to cover 3. That budget includes a open world campaign not just the MP Idk what you were expecting and what you don't like. It seem like all you care or wanted for was top tier forza level graphics when an open world mp 120fps shooter wouldn't do nor has halo ever been a game with tier 1 graphics. (Other than 4/5)
New skin for Crackdown 3.
I hope it don't start after so event we don't get to play. Like is cortana dead? And is she dead from the start?
Looked to be a big improvement over last years showing. The MP looks great, looks like it really retains the old school Halo feel.
Big improvement? You're the first person I've seen that has that opinion. Most think it looks about the same or marginally better.
Anyone else remember when halo played like halo? There’s a reason it’s still easier to find games in MCC than 5, why do they keep pushing it further away?
Hearing Killing spree, and double kill just doesn't sound right 😐 It's like they tried to mimmick the announcer from Unreal Tournament 2004 and failed 😁 Nothing will top this announcer: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Best line after so many kills, HOLY SHIT! 😀😁👍
Quick impression: The world looks solid in the Halo art style but never been a fan of Halo graphics so maybe seeing it running will make me a believer but won't crap on it either. Single player: Ok this one actually troubles me because I was expecting a real gameplay shooting similar to Forza 5 but instead we have the opening cutscene that basically gives us nothing. I expect MS to actually hold an event just for that but for the moment I think they drop the ball on this. Multiplayer: HOLYCRAP! man this looks like tons of fun and seems to be a carbon copy of Unreal Tournament 2004 If the game performs as well Gears and other Halo well sign me up for this. The rebound gun shot was sick :)
”. I expect MS to actually hold an event just for that but for the moment I think they drop the ball on this.” They never held a ball. No ball to drop
THE KING IS BACK!!!! 117!!!!!!
I hope they bring out a nice limited edition Series X console with the game. I might finally bite.
Multiplayer looked great. No longer do weapons stick static on the ground when you kill an enemy, but they fly through the air and you can pick them up mid-air. Sorry, but i am going to take Halo MP for free anyday, over Battlefield for £70
Hopefully this plays like h2-h3 but with graphics turned way up.
Guess after all the campaign critique they didn't fancy showing us any campaign then. So stupid. But hey, woo!! can't wait for that huge Microtransactions store full of takedowns, skins, guns, armours, kill effects, name signs etc etc etc etc etc loads of FOMO offers cycling around with timers etc. Most of your favourite stuff will be hidden in loot boxes like Halo 5 and you'll have very little chance in the gacha to get the one you want... but hey, you can buy packs. Halo free to play garbage yawn.
Wow salty AF
The graphic look good in the trailer, but not amazing but look solid im ok with that, and we look only a piece of the gameplay, xbox one is holding them back also the use a new engine,multyplayer gameplay look awesome Im pump for HALO
I'll be quite honest. The game doesn't look that much better than what we saw last year. I guess marginally. At least they got to fine tune the gameplay but honestly it would of been better if they released it last holiday or at least earlier this year. The delay just to make the game look marginally better in my opinion wasn't worth it. What a waste of time especially since this console doesn't have that many exclusives yet.
They purposely locked the halo showings at 30fps?
I didn't realise I'd already commented on this thread. I need this message deleting!
Last gen as f....
I personally can't wait to dive into the game. It looks pretty dang fun
It's very concerning that we are less than five months away from what is the normal Halo release month and there is still no release date. 343 stopped doing monthly updates saying they were going to show off a lot at E3 and we got a total of four minutes of Halo in the MS show. I have a strong feeling something is going very badly behind the scenes and a delay is going to happen. The trailers looked great though, multiplayer looks like a healthy mix of Halo 3 and Reach. Wished the Multiplayer showcase was an actual multiplayer demo and not largely the same clips from the trailer re-edited, battlepasses are a bad sign too.
