It wasn’t the best-looking game during the showcase.
The Xbox Games Showcase that was streamed last weekend gave us a glimpse of what games we can expect when the Xbox Series X launches later this year. Among the most awaited titles were Halo Infinite, where it marked the return of Master Chief. But when 343 Industries showed off gameplay footage from the game, many were left unimpressed by the supposedly next-generation graphics that look… well, flat.
Yes, the fans praised the gameplay along with subtle nods to previous franchises, but overall, there’s nothing really visually impressive from the game that is supposed to be the highlight of the Xbox Series X (considering it has more powerful hardware compared to the PS5).
Some point out that the livestream limited the capability for everyone to see the real graphics, to which it was somehow redeemed when you watch the gameplay footage above in the highest quality possible. But still, the developers then emphasized that Halo Infinite is still very much in development, meaning that this will probably won’t be the game’s final form.
Despite this, the developers also stressed that Halo Infinite will take advantage of the Xbox Series X’s full power by letting you play the entire game in 4K 60fps along with a ‘more realistic audio experience’.
We may have to wait and see how Halo Infinite will actually look like being played on the Xbox Series X. Microsoft is now in stiff competition with Sony with the PS5, where both consoles are scheduled to launch later this year.
