COG: The Halo Infinite technical preview is live now and we have been checking out what it has to offer. We have tried out the weapon drills and multiplayer.
Is there any native footage out there that hasn’t been live streamed and recorded? I’d like to see some 4K footage.
It looks good. Its just a bit soft lookin. It is just a technical test tho. We gotta see how the game look.
Here's some average 4k gameplay from an unlisted vid on youtube. I captured this on the xb sx internal dvr https://youtu.be/tdlUagpQiS...
This be looking smooth
Is this supposed to be next gen?
Definitely not a next gen title.
Seeing as it's being developed for the base Xbox one...a cross gen title is being generous. Base Xbox one was very behind the base PS4 and for the most part only Sony really advances the graphical fidelity throughout a generation. This is a last gen game playable on next gen machines.
Did they announce it to be nextgen only?
Two month old build and multiplayer is built to target 120fps. Is it supposed to look like the now-40fps single-player-only Ratchet? Or the 30fps also-cross-gen Horizon (which is reportedly delayed to 2022 and also doesn't have Ray Tracing)?
This multiplayer mode doesn't have ray-tracing.
The only mention 343 has made with regards to RT in Infinite was a year ago as it coming post-launch (before the delay announcement). Not a peep since then, so of course it's not in this. I would be surprised if they do put something with such a performance hit in multiplayer at all (at least on console).
yah let me know when halo infinite gets any real traction as a game of the year contender. while horizon will definitely be a heavy contender for g.o.t.y. just like zero dawn was. in fact when was the last time xbox had a game of the year contender? a decade or so ago? must be sad having to play recycled trash games year after year.
Pretty easy to compare a multiplayer map that's like 4 buildings and an alleyway to a full open world game and a next Gen cartoon looking game but OK.
I'm pretty sure ratchet is can be 60fps...might be wrong but that's what I think performance mode is at. 40fps is a boost from the fidelity mode. Pretty sure horizon looks way better too.
It’s not next Gen. Next Gen will give higher FPS.

It's a shame the PC version is so rough right now.
Halo Waypoint's message told me that I was on the preview for the PC build. But the Insider section of my profile showed me on Xbox... and that's indeed what the Insider Hub showed (Xbox had it but PC didn't). If I can actually get it on PC tonight I'll take it for a spin - 2070S GPU so it's roughly the same as Series X performance.
Check on waypoint again, with me I got Xbox but they also sent a steam code
Download the Xbox insider app on your series X, you’ll see halo insider available, enroll, it’ll start downloading the game. I was confused too because I got the pc message as well.
Oh I got it on my Series S. It's just that Insider Hub on PC doesn't have access but the Xbox app did. My Profile's Insider section on HW also said just Xbox, despite the message to me stating PC. So I guess exact situation as you Aarontk
They only show the multi-player
And what's wrong with that seeing as more people play that than the story mode
Are you saying the story mode is crap? Are you saying that shouldn't be the focus at all? Should they scrap single player campaigns then? The single player is an opportunity for them to show the power of their console along with an amazing campaign with set piece moments...missed opportunity.
@TheDoomedGuy no that is not what I'm saying at all as it's a well known fact that when it comes to games that have both story & multiplayer that more people prefer to play the latter
of course its silky smooth, it looks, like a nes game
Is that the best you could come up with 😞 Ponies got no class these days, they’re rapidly running out of material.
More like a Tiger handheld.
The game looks at least like the PS1. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Saw JackFraggs running it on his beefy PC and it was dropping below 60fps. However, still far too early to judge but for a game that is also running on the 2013 X1 it was a little surprising to see that drop.
Looks gooood. What is that little boy voice tho? 2:10 "Wowwow you nailed that shot, Buster!" 😂 tf is that
😂 have to agree, I’m not a fan of the British voice either.
Yeah, that weirded me out as it's not what I expected from a Halo game, hope that's customizable at least, otherwise the game looks good to me (I need a new multiplayer game after TF2).
Agreed. The regular announcer is back and sounds great so idk why the extra voice
I've been out of town and played about an hour remotely this morning. Adjusted my FOV, turned down motion blur and camera shake, remapped the control inputs (a first for Halo - controller inputs before were restricted only to their predefined settings). Even in this worst-case, it looked, felt, and sounded exactly like Halo should. Can't wait to be home tonight in front of my 4K.
I'm hoping you can turn off that in-game chat stuff. For some reason it makes me cringe to hear them say "EnEmiEs ON mE" "OVeRShIeLd inBoUNd" "wOW yOu NAIlEd tHat sHOt" It was happening pretty much constantly. I can't stand it. Hopefully you can turn that off.
it does look solid also the sound
Looks fun but let's be real it's no different to any other MP shooter right?
IMO, the multiplayer has COD vibes
Played it so far on Xbox and PC. Both look great, but the PC version really does take the cake from a visual standpoint. Not completely surprising i know.
Polish turd mode
Looks weak destiny still looks alot better imo.
On PC it runs horribly.
Which PC...there are 1000 configurations
With those visuals it better be.
What's wrong with the visuals? The game also supports 120fps. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Halo veterans seem to love it, which is cool. For people like me who have never been interested in the Halo IP... it looks bad and isn't enticing at all.
