Microsoft finally plans on showing off more of Halo Infinite's campaign, a year after graphics debacle
With Halo Infinite set to launch in December, Microsoft has finally decided to showcase more campaign footage for the first time in over a year. The campaign overview, which will be streamed here on YouTube at 2PM GMT, will be the first new single-player footage we've seen since the infamous campaign premier with "Craig the Brute."
Last year's Halo Infinite campaign preview was roundly criticized for its poor visuals, with some gamers drawing unfavorable comparisons with the 14 year-old Halo 3. The criticism isn't entirely unfounded. Halo Infinite is a cross-gen game, which means that the core codebase has to work reasonably well on everything from the Xbox One on up.
Considering that the original Xbox One features a 1.3 TFLOP GPU and Jaguar CPU that are bested by current-generation smartphone chips like the Apple A15, there is a hard limit on just how 343 Studios will be able to push the limits. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how 343's optimized and improved the campaign's visuals over the past year.
