Halo Infinite’s Latest Technical Preview Enhances Performance Mode

Halo Infinite’s Latest Technical Preview Enhances Performance Mode

343 Industries will host its latest technical preview of Halo Infinite this weekend. This opens up more of the game’s features to potential players. This test introduces new Halo Infinite modes that Halo enthusiasts can check out before its December launch. This test allows for deeper analysis of the performance of Halo Infinite and comparisons to other technical previews. One comparison revealed that Halo Infinite’s Performance Mode on console seems to have been significantly improved.

To clarify, Performance Mode is a graphics option that consoles offer. It typically reduces resolution and other visual features to get a faster frame rate. Digital Foundry’s recent analysis found that Halo Infinite’s new Performance Mode on Xbox Series X gave an impressive improvement over previous tests. Halo Infinite can run at 120 fps with the latest Performance Mode improvements on Xbox Series X. However, the game’s resolution drops below 1440p. Rarely, it drops down to 1080p.

Players couldn’t toggle between Quality Mode and Performance Mode in previous versions of Performance Mode on Xbox Series X. It was believed that the toggle was bugged. This meant that players were stuck in 60 fps quality mode, regardless of whether they switched to Performance Mode. Digital Foundry doesn’t believe there is a bug in the technical preview. This causes Halo Infinite to switch back to Quality Mode after the game resets. Players must then change it back back to Performance every time they start the game.

However, the Xbox Series X was not the only console that received improvements to Halo Infinite’s Performance Mode. Digital Foundry also discovered that the Xbox One X console received a boost in performance. The console’s performance mode now delivers a steady 60 frames per second frame rate. It also maintains a 1440p resolution, with occasional dips to 1080p. The Xbox One X Performance Mode was previously unable to consistently deliver 60 frames per second.

One other difference exists in Performance Mode for a different Xbox platform. The Xbox Series S had a Performance Mode that reached 120 fps prior to the technical preview. This mode has been removed. Halo Infinite now only supports a single 60 fps mode for the next-generation Xbox console. The Xbox One S has a single graphics mode that can only display 30 frames per second.

This is a surprising amount of choices for potential Halo Infinite gamers. Xbox Series X gamers with monitors or televisions capable of supporting 120 fps will be in the minority. However, 343 has a great mode that they can use regardless. The Xbox Series X’s dynamic 4K quality mode with 60 fps should suffice to satisfy Halo fans.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Fans Want To See Gwen Stacy In The Sequel

Marvel’s Spider-Man Fans Want To See Gwen Stacy In The Sequel

Like Peter Parker, Gwen Stacy has been through many iterations using different sources. Marvel’s Spider-Man weaves its own web of lore, character continuities and plots to keep fans interested and awed by what might happen.

Gwen hasn’t yet been accepted into Marvel’s Spider-Man. This is something that fans have acknowledged since the original game was released. Mary Jane Watson, Peter’s conflicted romantic partner, was instead established. Fans have questioned whether the storyline of Miles Morales & Gwen should be continued in Marvel’s Spider-Man.

Walo-888 makes a hot take on the Marvel’s Spider-Man community, stating that they would love to see Gwen as a romantic interest in Miles. Walo-888 also wants Gwen to be only a romantic interest, and not have the possibility of becoming Spider-Gwen. This suggestion has divided fans who love either iteration of Gwen, whether it be the intelligent college student who hates Spider-Man and gets dropped from the George Washington Bridge, or The Mary Janes’ drummer who gets bitten by a genetically-engineered spider.

Marvel’s Spider-Man players claim that Peter and Miles, the two Spider-Men Insomniac Games has already developed, are too much to handle. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was the first time the two of them fought crime together. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 might want to further develop this dynamic duo. Some fans think that Insomniac might want to continue adding Spider-people to their universe and that even one tease might be offered.

Multiple fans came out in support of Marvel’s Spider-Man. Miles Morales’ Hailey Cooper is a street artist who has impaired hearing and communicates with Miles via sign language. Fans love Hailey, despite her small role as a sidecharacter. However, they would like to see their relationship blossom. Although it’s not clear that they are in love, it seems like Insomniac laid the foundation for a future romantic relationship.

According to a Walo-888 post, it seems that Gwen might play a part in the future development of Marvel’s Spider-Man. Or Insomniac might not be ready to give up on a potential character and wait until the right time and place is available to add her to the story. Fans would love to see the character, whether as a mild-mannered, tragically fated lover or as an alternate universe crimefighter.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Player Spots Haunting Teaser In Nuketown

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Player Spots Haunting Teaser In Nuketown

Activision and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s developers introduced their first major crossover Halloween event in October 2020. Between October 20 and November 3, 2020, The Haunting of Verdansk transformed Verdansk into an eerie setting filled with holiday terrors. Call of Duty fans are eager to hear about The Haunting of Verdansk’s return in 2021. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War suggests that this event may be imminent.
One of Activision’s Halloween plans has been discovered by Watchful Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War gamers. One of the Nuketown maps’ garages contains a Halloween bucket containing lollipops and candy. It is an orange bucket that has a jacko-lantern face and a weathered exterior to fit Nuketown’s aesthetic. Although it isn’t interactive, and there are no other Halloween clues nearby, the bucket has sparked speculation.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War gamers believe the Halloween candy bucket is a nod towards Season 6’s scary event. Some believe that Activision is sneaking out information to players about upcoming events by using the bucket. Players are speculating that a Halloween-themed Nuketown map may be released. This is similar to the Christmas-themed map that was released late last year. Activision will reveal the details, but players will have to wait.

This is Activision’s first evidence of Halloween’s return in the Call of Duty universe. However, this information is not the only one Activision has provided about its plans. A seasonal event called The Haunting was announced in a Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War roadmap and Call of Duty; Warzone roadmap. It is expected to start on October 19. This event will offer new modes and rewards that are only available for a limited time, as well as other perks. This is the entire reveal.

There is much speculation about whether Activision will bring back The Haunting of Verdansk’s dark map changes for this years’ seasonal event. Players are hoping for a surprise return to the nighttime setting in the updated Verdansk’84 battle royale map.

Activision will launch Season 6 of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War this week. This update will be available on October 7, and it is likely to grab Call of Duty players’ attention for quite some time. Although a revelation for the Haunting event in 2021 may not be forthcoming for a few weeks, there might be some teasers in Season 6.

Destiny 2 Glitch Gives Infinite Heavy Ammo But Isn’t Easy

Destiny 2 Glitch Gives Infinite Heavy Ammo But Isn’t Easy

 

From the beginning, Destiny 2’s combat has required players to keep a steady supply of heavy ammunition and still have stronger weapons to deal with difficult enemies. However, some players have discovered a way to avoid the need to keep ammo in check. This allows them to use heavy and special weapons unlimited, including some of Destiny 2’s most exotics.

The culprit is an animation glitch that’s tied to relics. However, this exploit doesn’t work on all relics in Destiny 2. This means that some players might have difficulty activating the glitch during activities like Crucible. However, Titans have the ability to activate the glitch at will and can provide unlimited ammo for their fireteam.

Players should watch the Cheese Forever video to activate the glitch. Players will need to have enough ammo to activate the glitch. They can also pick up one of the relics that allows them to switch to third-person mode. The game will replenish the magazine by picking up the relic and reloading. If done correctly, it can even give you more reserve than the weapon can hold. The glitch will activate in many activities that use relics such as Destiny 2: Last Wish Raid. However, there are occasions when it doesn’t.

Stasis Titans can activate unlimited ammo in areas without a glitch relic. They do this by using a Diamond Lance and any stasis kill for some builds. The Diamond Lance relic can be picked up by other players, so that Titans can act as an ammo reserve for their fireteams or raid parties across multiple encounters. Although there is a limit to how much ammo can still be duplicated depending on the skill of each player and how many stasis kills a Titan can manage per encounter, it can provide substantial more heavy use than what is usually intended.

This glitch can cause certain activities to be broken, such as raids or strikes. This can be fun for players who have already won these encounters several times. The infinite ammo can also impact competitive activities such as Destiny 2’s PvPvE game Gambit. This could make it difficult for players to enjoy this multiplayer content. Players may be tempted to use this glitch less frequently in situations that could attract more attention from Bungie, and force Bungie to fix it sooner than expected.
