The Halo Infinite campaign overview livestream is an opportunity for players to get a second look at 343 Industries’ next entry in the Halo saga. This livestream comes after a handful of technical previews for the multiplayer and, of course, the first look at the campaign, which left viewers underwhelmed. This stream is an opportunity for 343i to set the record straight, and you can watch it all unfold right below.

Halo Infinite campaign overview livestream – October 25

The Halo Infinite campaign overview livestream is scheduled to begin at 6:00 a.m. PT / 9:00 a.m. ET on Monday, October 25, 2021. Players had been hoping to get another look at the campaign ahead of the game’s release later this year and it looks like that wish has come true. How much of the campaign is shown, whether we get to ogle some new weapons, or if the devs are there to offer insight remains to be seen.

The first bit of Halo Infinite campaign footage was revealed halfway through 2020 during the Xbox Games Showcase. The reaction to the reveal was mixed. A lot of viewers were excited for the gameplay and the story, but the general consensus was that the visuals needed a major work – a lot of the lighting looked odd despite being technically realistic. 343i promised it was addressing these issues, and now we get to see the fruits of that labor.

Following that initial reveal, players have actually gotten their hands on Halo Infinite as part of a few multiplayer technical preview weekends. Suffice it to say, the visuals are extremely strong, with the lighting changes being immediately noticeable. If the multiplayer preview is anything to go by, the campaign is no doubt going to look impressive.

Be sure to keep it locked to Shacknews as we bring you the latest on Halo Infinite, which is scheduled to release on December 8, 2021 on PC via the Microsoft Store and Steam, as well as on Xbox consoles and Game Pass.

        Yeah it was pretty sad to look at how they progressively made her more of a sex symbol. It was egregious in Halo 4.

          yeah I was expecting that she would need built in pixelated areas this time around - good change of direction

      It looked like crap on the stream but the 4K trailer is better. Still not sure about the campaign but let's see.

      4K trailer looks good. Not sure what I think about the gameplay. I think I may just kind of be over it. But hey, that multiplayer looks real good and I am excited to play that on PC.

      Questions:
      This looks like borrows strongly from the open world genre "clear X encampments", but hopefully they'll add a huge amount variety to each set piece. Ghost of Tsushima was too repetitive in that regard.
      Movement and aiming is really slow, maybe just for the trailer?

      Highlights:
      Grapple looks like a great addition.
      Graphics look great. Is there a 60FPS mode and a quality mode?

      Lowlights:
      I'd like to see way more variety in materials, architecture, and enemies.
      I wish they'd bring back the alien non-English dialogue.

        SP is 4k 60; MP is 4k 120 (on the XSX at least).

            Dynamic res upscaled to 4k of course, but at least in the beta it was working well, so no reason to assume it won't be even better at launch.

            If you're playing on an OG Xbox One...good luck.

                  343 has very questionable PC development credentials after MCC’s issues like terrible audio and everything breaking at high fps.

                    October 25, 2021 11:33 AM

                    Yeah. I want to play it on PC and I'm happy they announced the features they have, but MCC has left me with a very strong 'wait and see' response.

                    I still haven't run through the campaigns the initial experience was so lackluster.

                    They fixed pretty much all of that, no?

                    MCC at launch was a mess, and Reach had audio issues, but as far as I know it's very stable now (just played some of it a few months back).

                    They also took an extra year on Infinite, and it seems to show. The MP test has had an extremely positive reception.

                      Yeah, MCC is pretty much patched up and a good experience.

                      The Reach audio issues were awful, but reading their behind the scenes stuff it sounded like a complete nightmare. It was a custom audio codec using a bunch of obscure and defunct libraries that they had to either re-write or find a way to get working on hardware that wouldnt support them plus navigate the idjits at Dolby and Creative owning patents for everything the ear can possibly hear.

                        I'm sympathetic regarding the difficulty, but that doesn't excuse releasing it in the state they did.

                        They fixed it (mostly) after several months. Reach's audio was good when I played through over the summer (I waited until they supposedly fixed the sound).

                        Too bass-heavy but otherwise, fine.

                      the test had some issues, but they were making progress even between the flights.

        I hope they are keeping a lot of stuff because they always demo the same location.
