Although during the past E3, Xbox was one of the winners of the event and its game, Halo Infinite, was the one that received the most appreciation from fans, even reaching the first place in Amazon presales, this was not always the case.

Recall that last year a ‘Halo Infinite‘ gameplay was shown during the Xbox Games Showcase that left many disappointed with the graphics. Now that we had a fresh look at the gameplay and its new graphics. The YouTube channel, why, presented us with a visual comparison between the 2020 and 2021 charts.


In the video, which was kindly divided into sections by its authors, we can see that various aspects of ‘Halo Infinite’ were compared. The first comparison is with the Master Chief who originally looked quite flat, but with the help of different lighting and notable improvements in reflections we already have a Master Chief that does look like the next generation.

The ‘Halo Infinite‘ settings and the small parts of the Master Chief’s armor, such as the grapple, are now more detailed. Also, from the Master Chief, the weapons seem to be the ones that had more improvement, since they have already left behind the look that seemed like plastic to obtain a design that feels more metallic and even the ammo counters look better.

It’s obvious that 343 Industries has taken advantage of all this additional development time to polish the graphics. After all, the decision to delay it until this year was due to complications from the covid and the reception of the 2020 gameplay that, as we had already mentioned, caused a lot of criticism.

In its announcement of the delay, 343 said: ‘The goal of the July demo was to show Halo Infinite gameplay for the first time. While that aspect turned out as we wanted, the reality is that the art and visuals were not up to par with what Halo is – even for a work in progress- (…) The comments we received made us realize and prompted us to search additional opportunities for improvement. ‘

Well, we don’t know about you, but it seems to us that you did a very good job, especially when we saw the comparison. We just miss good old Craig the brute a little. Will it be as handsome as it was before with these new graphics?
