I think it fits with the open world nature of the game from the looks of it, they're going pretty vertical with the layouts.  Having said that though, I think the grappling hook is just one thing you might be able to equip and use if you want.  In the demo when he opens the map for a bit, and we see how big that part of the world is, there's a Upgrades tab at the top.  I think the grappling hook and other stuff, like weapons, and maybe even your armor to, will be upgradable.  This adds a little RPG bits into the now open world nature of Halo.

I guess I'm just not a fan of RPG elements in my shooters. Halo is no exception, and I fear a lot of the game will be built to show off the grappling hook if it's not swappable for other items.

I'll take anything that gives me more gameplay and not something short like 6hrs.   If going a bit open world means I get a 20hr playthrough, or more, then I'll shell out the money quick.

Windows Central has a post up talking about Halo Infinite and it's gfx etc.

 

Source.

 

Basically like other posts are saying, it's a older build from around the end of 2019, doesn't have ray tracing or other XSX bits added yet.   Guess we'll see 5 or so months from now, whenever this comes out, how it looks.  Visuals are always tweaked towards the end, and just adding ray tracing makes a big difference to games out right now.  Heck, anyone who's looked a metro exodus should check out the difference with and without ray tracing in that game alone to get a good idea.

I was going to post this. 

 

Overall I thought the show was a bit average. 

 

I don't know if my expectations are too high, MS isn't hitting the mark or I've just lost the "wow" factor for video games in general. 

 

I'm still looking forward to upgrading my One S and seeing some of my existing games with 4K and HDR, but if I had  One X, I feel like there would less of a push to upgrade. 

 

Another thing I noticed was that a few of the games didn't mention Xbox One in the titles cards. I've also seen a few articles pointing out the same. I'm interested to see what MS has to say about that given their earlier promise

Probably all of the above.  Game Pass is still the star of the show, their investments lately have been great and I can't wait to see everything, but they still love their mainline series we're all bored with.

 

I haven't even watched any of the stuff.  I'll probably do it eventually, but right now...meh.  I'll be more interested when the console is about to release, whenever that is.

A number of new games and reboots like Fable don't say Xbox One etc, those are, what I expect, coming in 2022, so it's after the cross-gen period MS talked about.

 

That just makes them XSX and PC exclusives and they shouldn't be held back by the X1 like some people talked about.

Outside of Halo, that's coming soon, nothing else mainline is coming soon.  We haven't had a new Fable in forever, and it still looks like it's a few years away.  They teased a new Forza, but that also looks like it's a few years out to.   There actually was a number of new stuff shown, at least in trailers, like Avowed.  Unless you're not into RPGs that much.

 

 

From the main show.

 

Halo Infinite

State of Decay 3

Forza

Everwild 

Grounded

Avowed

Hellblade 2

Psychonauts 2

Fable

 

I mean it's not a bad 1st party start,  3 new IPs, 1 old IP that's getting a reboot, and 4 sequels.  And there's still a number of studios that haven't shown what they're working on so who knows?  That's 9 titles and they've got 15 studios, so I expect more to drop over the coming months.

I'm into everything Obsidian is doing right now (and a lot of their older games.)  Pillars of Eternity was a little weird but I still liked it.  Just didn't get into that series.

 

I hope they end up doing another Alpha Protocol...it's been long enough I'm not expecting anything, but heh.

Avowed, from what I read, sounds like it takes place in the Pillars of Eternity world.  I'd have to double check that one.

 

I liked Outer Worlds though I think it felt short, probably because of the situation they were in at the time, money wise.  I think now with the MS deep pockets they can really go all out, should be very interesting to see.

Yeah, but it's not the weird 2D style and they have a much larger budget so I'm pretty sure I'll dig it.

Yep, I know personally I'm becoming much pickier with what I play. I've gone from buying 5+ release day games to 1 (may be 2) games a year. My backlog plus Gamepass is keeping me very entertained.

As I said it's just me becoming fussier. I don't get showing games that are years out, show me more of what I'm going to be playing day 1.

 

I get that MS want to drip feed and keep the hype going with Xbox, but they should have stuck with a single show to show off everything Xbox related instead of doing multiple shows. It feels like some of the stuff they're showing is just filler. Both shows, despite how poor I thought Sony's show was, have left a lot of people thinking meh.

 

If they had a single big show to replace E3, show the heavy hitters from third parties, show the stuff that's releasing this year from their first parties and finish with showing off Lockhart and opening pre-orders for XSX.

I agree with you on showing games coming, but MS would do that last few years of the X1 and still got flack for it.  While on the flip side, Sony would show you the same games for 2-3 years till they're released, which made their last 2 E3s boring af IMO.  Probably why they decided to not do E3 anymore.

 

I figure at this point since critics keep harping on MS about 1st party exclusives, even if they're not coming soon, they figured they'd get the word out that they've got them in the works right now.   I still figure we're going to see more later, a number of their studios still haven't said what they're working on.

So just following on from this headline last night - https://www.neowin.net/news/halo-infinite-has-been-delayed-until-2021

 

I'm disappointed and at the same time understand why MS/343 decided to delay.

 

I feel like this will hurt the launch of Xbox Series X, I feel like Halo may have been the game that pushed people to get a Series X. I can't remember what the launch line up looks like but I don't think there's anything new that will push folk to get a Series X.

 

Or is that just me?

It might hurt but at the same time if they push the compatibility angle and free Series X updates to games you own, it could still win over early buyers.  I think Halo Infinite is the only delay, any other games on track for that time should still be coming.  We'll see how it goes, and how long the delay for Halo actually is.  Maybe it's Feb 2021?  It could be July 2021?    

 

I still expect MS has a few games they haven't talked about that are coming in Nov or right after, we'll see if they say anything later this month or Sept, we still need info on Series S.

I was never buying it for Halo.  I was buying it for my existing collection and updates to those games and upcoming titles working much better.

 

I'm still playing far too much Destiny 2, and would love to play The Outer Worlds again on there for starters.  Gears 5 definitely feels like it needs a better machine.  We've still got three months and I expect we'll know more about launch upgrades and games in late September.

I still have a gut feeling that we're going to get a little news drop this month and another sometime in Sept.     The leaked white controllers have stickers saying do not display before November 6th, looking like that's the release date.

Pretty much this, I don't care too much about any of the new titles, I'd rather what I'm playing now runs better, faster load times etc. I don't even care about more things being in "4K" that much.

 

Halo, Fable etc are just nice to haves so them being delayed or not available at launch doesn't mean a huge amount to me.

 

I'll potentially give Destiny 2 another try once all the DLCs after Warmind drop as part of game pass too.

Interesting tidbits if all of that is confirmed.  I really think the Series S will be $300 tops.

Saw this article over the weekend. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out - https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/halo-infinite-could-drop-its-xbox-one-version-its-been-claimed/

If it's coming later in 2021 that could be possible.  And if true the choice to do so would be to push the visuals to as high as they can on XSX for what's more or less they're flagship series.  I understand the thinking behind it.  Sucks for XO owners but we're talking a year from now, maybe, not in a few months.  Enough time to get a XSX.

      Xbox is making a return to Tokyo Game Show this year
      by Usman Khan Lodhi



      Tokyo Game Show, a renowned video game convention, is held annually in September in Japan. This event primarily showcases Japanese games, but some international developers use it to announce their upcoming releases. Tokyo Game Show 2021 will begin on September 30 and last four days. In usual circumstances, the physical event is reserved for industry attendees for the first two days and the general public can attend during the final two days.

      This year's event will also be happening online like last year due to the coronavirus, and Xbox Wire revealed today that it will be present at the event with a virtual stream curated for Japanese and other Asian players. Following Xbox's return to the event last year, the virtual stream will begin on Thursday, September 30 at 6 pm JST.

      Microsoft stated that its stream will be a celebration with its Asian community and feature locally relevant updates. The firm won't be announcing any new global debuts during the stream, the blog post read. Specifically, it will focus on the latest regionally relevant updates on previously announced gates that are due to arrive later this year.

      Xbox social channels in Japan, Korea, and China will also feature the Tokyo Game Show 2021 Xbox Stream.

      Xbox Cloud Gaming and Remote Play comes to the Xbox app on Windows
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Last month, Microsoft began testing an updated version of the Xbox app on Windows that let users jump into console games via Xbox Cloud Gaming, or Remote Play, straight through the app. While that was only for Insiders, Today, Microsoft has begun rolling the feature out for all users.

      Xbox Game Pass Ultimate users on PC (Windows 10 and up) will now see a Cloud Gaming tab on the app for easy access to the hundreds of console experiences available. They will need to be in one of the 22 supported regions and have a compatible controller connected though. When playing, the games are integrated with the Xbox Game Bar for quickly using Xbox social elements like joining groups or inviting friends into sessions.

      Keep in mind this arrives in addition to the already available browser-based experience on Xbox.com/play and does not replace it.

      Meanwhile, the Xbox app is also now capable of streaming directly from an Xbox Series X|S home console, or any system from the Xbox One family. With this, the complete console experience from an owned device will be mirrored straight into a PC running the app, either via the local network or even the internet.

      This feature is building on previous Xbox Remote Play versions, so in addition to improved stability, 1080p 60FPS support, and streaming support for compatible Xbox 360 and Xbox Original games are all present too. Keep in mind this does not require a Game Pass subscription like the aforementioned cloud play offerings of Microsoft. Download the Xbox app for Windows 10 from here.

      Movies Anywhere app launches today for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles
      by Abhay V

      Disney’s official Movies Anywhere app is now becoming available for Xbox One and Series X|S users from the Microsoft Store. The addition of the app brings a native solution for those that use the service to purchase and watch content across platforms. Earlier, users could watch purchased content via the Redmond firm’s Movies & TV app on both Windows and Xbox.

      Movies Anywhere has been available on most major platforms on both mobile and streaming hardware, including the likes of Apple TV, Fire TV Stick, Android TV, and select smart TVs from LG, Samsung, and more. While the Xbox app adds another native solution, it also brings with it support for 4K resolution, HDR10, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos, making it a viable option for users that have their Series X|S consoles hooked up to hardware that supports these standards.

      The Movies Anywhere app also brings with it the Watch Together feature that allows for users to view content together – like a viewing party – by sharing a ‘Screen Pass’, bringing feature parity with the app on other devices. The service’s recently added ‘My Lists’ feature that provides personalized suggestions and more will also be a welcome addition for Xbox users. Those that have connected their Microsoft account with Movies Anywhere will be able to purchase content directly from the Microsoft Store, just like before.

      Overall, the launch of the official app in native form makes it a useful addition for Xbox users. You can head to the Microsoft Store here to get the Movies Anywhere app. It must be noted that the ability to connect users’ Microsoft accounts to the service is applicable only to users in the U.S.

      Microsoft Weekly: Windows 11 builds, new zero-day vulnerability, and gaming news
      by Abhay V



      Another week has passed, and a lot has happened in the world of Microsoft. There were new Windows 11 builds for both the Dev and Beta channels, information about another refreshed app for the OS came from Windows chief Panos Panay, a few vulnerabilities were reported on - including a zero-day that affects all Windows versions, some security fixes, and a bunch of gaming news. Check all this out and much more in our weekly Microsoft digest for September 5 – September 11.

      Windows 11 builds, new apps, and a rebranded service


      As was expected, Microsoft released new Windows 11 builds for both Dev and Beta channel users. While Dev channel users got build 22454, Beta channel users were served build 22000.184. The Dev channel build brought a few minor UI improvements, such as a modern right-click menu for the Recycle Bin and more. It also included a ton of bug fixes, something that the Beta channel did not see, as those users received a couple of fixes to address translation inconsistencies. The firm did, however, note that fixes that were made as part of the Dev channel build will be released to the stable version in the way of servicing updates after the OS releases on October 5, which does seem odd. Additionally, Dev channel users that wanted to perform a clean install could download new ISO images of build 22454.

      The week also brought news of a Photos app refresh, a welcome addition for those who have hoped for the in-box app to be more aesthetically pleasing and feature-rich. Of course, another expectation is that the app brings some much-needed reliability and performance improvements. It is to be seen if that is the case, as the app is yet to begin rolling out.

      Speaking of refreshes, Microsoft announced a rebrand of its news service to Microsoft Start. The new service doesn’t bring much in the way of additions or features and the branding change is being applied across platforms, including on the web, in Windows, and the mobile apps. In the area of updates, there is also a new Edge 95 build for the Dev channel. It does not come with many new features, which is because it is still an early build for major version 95.

      For those still on the fence about installing Windows 11 builds on their machines, we have been looking at the various components of the OS and documenting them in our Closer Look series. This week, we went over the improvements and changes coming to the Virtual Desktop experience in Windows 11 and compared it to that in Windows 10. And to gin up enthusiasm about the upcoming OS, Microsoft has posted a new ad on YouTube and is also speaking about how the OS makes the best of new hardware.

      Windows zero-day vulnerability, Outlook bug, and Azure patch


      There were a couple of security issues reported this week, the most significant of which was the zero-day in Windows that can enable specially tailored Office files to let attackers perform remote code execution. Microsoft acknowledged the vulnerability, adding that it is currently being exploited in the wild. The firm has said that it is working on a fix and expects to release a fix soon. The zero-day affects all Windows versions going back to Windows 7 and the corresponding Windows Server release.

      Another security vulnerability affected Outlook users, where a bug had the potential to falsely flag phishing emails as genuine, thanks to the service not filtering IDs from Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs). While the firm denied having plans to fix the issue to the researcher that discovered it, it appeared that the firm changed its mind and fixed the issue, which is always a good thing.

      On the positive side of things, the Redmond firm changed how Microsoft 365 apps deal with Trusted Documents to make them more secure. Now, Trusted Documents no longer override the Protected View restrictions and adheres to pre-set policies. Another fix – this time affecting commercial customers – came in the way of a patch for a vulnerability in the Azure Container Instances (ACI) service. The issue risked data leaks across the same clusters, but the firm was quick to note that it found no indication of active exploits.

      Halo Infinite’s next multiplayer preview, Alan Wake Remastered screenshots, and more
      Starting off the week’s gaming roundup is news about Halo Infinite’s next multiplayer preview, which starts September 24. However, the sign-up cut-off is soon approaching, with the date set for September 13. Those eligible will receive invites on both the PC and Xbox platforms. As for the changes, 343 Industries detailed the tweaks it is planning to make based on the first technical preview's feedback.

      For those excited about Alan Wake Remastered, screenshots of the game appeared on Amazon UK before the official announcement arrived with details on the changed elements and PC system requirements.

      An extended look at Marvel's Midnight Suns also came this week in the form of visceral gameplay footage. Considering that the footage is of the game in its alpha stages, the animations and visuals were still unpolished but gave a better look at the villains. Fallout 76 Worlds Update also began rolling out, bringing Public and Custom Worlds. However, only Fallout 1st subscribers will be able to host Custom Worlds. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, luckily, will receive Fallout 1st subscription for one month. Bethesda also acknowledged an issue with Season 5’s rank-ups, which is why it extended the season by two weeks.

      Square Enix revealed the Fall and Winter 2021 Roadmap for Marvel’s Avengers, noting that it is working to address player’s concerns and bringing improvements to Gear, Resources, and Cosmetics.

      Coming to Microsoft’s gaming subscriptions, this week’s Deals with Gold included hefty discounts on games from BioShock, Borderlands, and Dragon Ball franchises. Additionally, this week’s Xbox Free Play Days games included Madden NFL 22, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, and Blasphemous.

      For Forza Horizon 5 fans, we have listed the current list of cars confirmed by Playground Games , which is over 400 in number. Cars from the likes of BMW and Tesla are obvious omissions and there is no word on whether they are expected later. This week, we also posted a list of every 120FPS supported game on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 (PS5).

      Rounding off gaming news is Flight Simulator’s next World Update. This time, central European nations are receiving love, including Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. As usual, there are a bunch of new airports, New Bush Trips, landing challenges, and Discovery flights, and overall improvements to the visuals in those countries.

      Redfall screenshots leak reveals weapons, locations, and more
      by Asher Madan

      Recently, Bethesda announced that Arkane Austin is working on an open-world co-op shooter called Redfall. It's launching exclusively on Xbox Series X|S and PC in Summer 2022, and will be included with Xbox Game Pass. While the team didn't tell us more about the game — except for the fact that we'd be fighting "science-inspired" vampires with different characters — a leaker posted a number of images on Imgur from an early version of the title online.

      The images below showcase characters, weapons, urban structures, woods, and a host of other features. We've compiled a list of the major features we were able to ascertain from the screenshots.

      Redfall appears to be a looter shooter game. The title features a skill tree that makes your hero stronger. You can choose between half a dozen characters. The weapons in the game have different tiers like Destiny 2 or The Division. You explore the open-world areas to find quests. The first-person perspective is featured prominently. There appears to be an option to experience the title in third person. Each character has unique abilities as well as an Ultimate. There are medpacks in the game that you can use to quickly heal. It's unclear if your health regenerates automatically or you need medpacks to survive. There are lockpicks, wire cutters, and other tools available to possibly access new areas and locked items. There are friendly characters you encounter that aren't just vampires and the cultists who worship them. Keep in mind that these are screenshots from a game very early in development. Given the fact that the title is in development for only Xbox Series X|S and PC, we'll have to wait and see how it turns out when it actually launches.
