Our pals over at Game Informer have recently posted up a pretty cool comparison video that highlights some differences between Halo Infinite in its 2020 form - a form that didn't exactly enamour fans upon its initial reveal - and its final 2021, release-ready appearance.
You can check the video out below and, we think you'll agree, there's been some pretty obvious and major upgrades here. 343 Industries has very obviously been making full use of the extra time they gave themselves with the game's delay in order to really polish up every aspect of Master Chief's latest adventure.
Immediately we can see lots of extra detail in character models, lighting and volumetric effects, and the video commentary itself goes into more detail on how traversal, vehicles navigation, background details, the day/night cycle and more have all been improved by the dev team in order to both enhance graphical quality and performance. It also mentions that a certain Craig the Brute has been excised from the game, although eagle-eyed fans may still find some remnants of his existence in there.
With 343 Industries having worked hard to address community concerns over the past year, we're feeling fairly confident that we're in for a pretty epic adventure once Halo Infinite's campaign finally arrives on 8th December.
Are you liking the improvements you're seeing in the comparison vide above? Let us know below.
Thought pushed back till about May?
@GuyinPA75 That's the co-op portion of the campaign.
@FraserG OK I definitely failed reading comprehension for the day reading an article somewhere.
Makes you appreciate delays more, seeing how cyberpunk and GTA trilogy are, then seeing how this looks now compared to a year ago, delays might p**s people off but its for the best in the long run
Very happy with how much improved it looks. Really looking forward to December 8th and the MP event next week.
@UltimateOtaku91 100% agree. People may hate the word delay but we have too many examples of what happened when you don’t now.
I love Escharum's monologue so much. There's more character and emotion in those few moments than the entirety of Halo 5.
These guys deserve every penny of what they get from this game. Dropped $50 onto the battle pass currency & preordered the steelbook version of the physical game. Can't wait!!
@UltimateOtaku91 yep they delayed it but have used every day extra to help improve it. I'm looking forward to playing the campaign
@mousieone yeah they should have delayed it further till it could be released with co op and ray tracing. Lack of co op is going to end up hurting this come review time I reckon
