New details about Halo Infinite on PC

Earlier, Xbox shared a few new details about Halo Infinite on PC. It's nothing too special, but important to note if you're planning on pushing 343 Industries' new shooter to the limit with your rig.

There's going to be Razer Chroma RGB support alongside both FreeSync support and post-launch ray-tracing support - due to be added in a future update.

How The Sound Effects Are Made

In a recent blog post, 343 Industries detailed the processes used to create the sound effects found in Halo Infinite.

Some of these were created by smashing up a piano with various objects.

What is even weirder is, some of these sounds are easily identifiable as sounds of explosions and other things, when in fact they aren't.

Check out the video below to see the process and what some of the sound effects sound like.

4K Resolution & A Solid Frame Rate

Halo Infinite will target 4K 60fps for the campaign and 120fps for the multiplayer on the Xbox Series X.

It hasn't been revealed if it will be 4K 120fps or a lower resolution for the multiplayer aspect of the game.

343 Industries also haven't confirmed whether 4K will be native or upscaled, we will likely find out about this during the next update they give on the game.

The Xbox Series S will likely see a lower resolution, potentially 1440p 60fps, although this is unconfirmed.

Will There Be A Battle Royale?

The Battle Royale genre has dominated gaming for the last few years, with games such as Fortnite, Warzone, and Apex Legends dominating the market right now.

It was rumoured that a Halo Battle Royale mode will be coming to Halo Infinite, however, 343 Industries have confirmed that no Battle Royale mode will be coming to Halo Infinite.

It wouldn't be the first time Halo has been associated with the genre as the Master Chief was added to Fortnite in December 2020, along with a recreation of the Blood Gulch map and a Capture The Flag game mode.

Halo is probably one of the few series' that a Battle Royale game would really work in, but it seems that 343 Industries are sticking to the more traditional multiplayer style that we've seen in previous titles, and that isn't a bad thing at all.
