Regardless of feelings on the gameplay reveal for Halo Infinite, one thing is for sure: that’s a big boy. 343 Industries devs recently spoke a little more on what fans can expect from Halo Infinite, including the massive scope of the game itself and how it relates to prior launches.
343’s Chris Lee and Paul Crocker recently sat down with the folks over at IGN to talk about the sheer size of the Halo Infinite campaign, and according to the duo, it’s going to be massive. Lee told the site that Halo Infinite’s campaign will be “several times larger” than that of both Halo 5 and Halo 4 combined in terms of the areas of exploration. It was also hinted that players will be able to explore outside worlds as well, though no straight-out confirmation on that at this time.
Personally, the Halo Infinite gameplay was everything I wanted and more. As a massive Halo fan, so much so that I don’t even use the remastered visuals with the Master Chief Collection because I want organic Halo, Infinite very much made me feel the way Halo Reach and ODST did. While the graphics weren’t incredibly impressive as one would expect from the next generation of gaming, they were very much in-line with what fans of Halo have come to know and love.
This franchise has always been on the cartoony side of graphics and why should that change just because of ray-tracing? I know I’m in the minority on that one and for reasons I definitely understand, but hearing the news that this game is going to be much bigger than prior launches has me excited beyond measure.
Split reactions aside, this previous Xbox Games Showcase was our first chance to actually see in-game gameplay, though the studio has assured fans that this was a live demo, therefore the quality wasn’t necessarily indicative of the final quality. Still, Halo Infinite is launching later this year during the holiday season and the team did promise a few more looks at what is in store before launch day happens.
