It's a good looking trailer overall, but I couldn't help feeling the lighting looked a bit strange. Like there was a pass missing. I've been playing Quake 2 RTX recently and it's been making me think about the nuances of interior lighting. The lighting in this trailer is almost previs-esque. The models are good, the animation's good, but the lighting is just strange.

Become humanity's greatest hero. In Halo Infinite, step inside the legendary Master Chief’s armor and experience the most expansive Halo campaign yet.


In Halo Infinite's campaign, the Master Chief returns when humanity's fate hangs in the balance to confront the most ruthless foe he's ever faced – the Banished.

The legendary Halo series returns with the most expansive Master Chief story yet. Enjoy a first-look at Halo Infinite campaign gameplay, captured real-time and representative of the experience on Xbox Series X running at 60FPS and up to 4K resolution.

On the one hand, it looks like 343i are returning to the roots of the first game and trying to live up to the early promises Bungie made with that game (and eventually rowed back on). On the other, it also looks like Halo.

Don't want to clutter the steam thread for Halo discussions. I guess this is the place to talk about this game?

Anyway, 343 has announced their plan to improve the battlepass. Thread here.

Every match providing at least some amount of XP+some of the bs challenges getting removed is gonna make for a great quick fix while they work on the system in more detail.

Yeah, apart from the battlepass, I would say they need more game modes / people can play any mode whenever they can. But that probably need an even bigger player base to achieve. Not really affecting me per se, because I only play BTB haha.

Just experienced something when playing BTB
Me and two people hopped on a warthog
Driver (not me) crashed the car right at the opposing team's front gate
Someone on the mic (not me) said "oh this is not good"
We got slaughter at the crash site
That line on the mic is pure gold.

First event "Fracture Tenai" starts tomorrow. Separate free battlepass to unlock.

I'm really glad this was delayed. Launching any of this last year would've done more harm than good IMO.
Yeah, after watching some comparison video there is a huge update in graphics. The test flights definitely help them balance out some rough edges, too.
