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.

Cheaper Xbox Series X Expansion Drives Are Coming From Seagate

Cheaper Xbox Series X Expansion Drives Are Coming From Seagate

Due to the possibility of multiple upgrades for video games, the next-generation consoles were much anticipated long before their 2020 release. These consoles were generally praised for their faster loading times and higher graphics fidelity. Fans shared one concern, however, other than the price, which is the storage capacity of next-gen consoles. Owners of the Xbox Series S/X may not have to wait any longer to obtain a new expansion drive.

Modern AAA video games require more storage than ever before. The Xbox Series S only has 512GB storage, while the Xbox Series X can store 1TB. This is a problem when games such as Microsoft Flight Simulator or Modern Warfare easily exceed 100GB. Seagate currently offers a 1TB storage drive for the Xbox Series X/S. It fits perfectly into the available storage space on both the consoles. The 1TB Seagate drive provides almost double the storage space for Xbox Series X and takes advantage of next-gen hardware’s loading speeds.

S, it comes with an incredibly hefty price tag of $220 USD ($280 CAD). There are many storage options that are less expensive, like an external HDD, or SDD. However, they will not benefit from the Xbox’s fast loading times. According to a leak, Seagate is soon going to sell a smaller version of its 1TB storage drives. The new 512GB expansion drives have been leaked to retailers. According to an anonymous source who spoke with WindowCentral, the storage drives could also be sold during the holiday period.

A USB Game Drive for Xbox SSD was also revealed in the leak. Users can use it to store their games later. This could theoretically be a quicker solution than redownloading all the games. The USB SSD can be used to transfer the games to the internal SSD.

Although it is not yet known how much the new 512GB expansion drive would cost, it’s likely that it will be less than half the price of the 1TB drive. S another alternative than paying $220 USD for another expansion drive. These solutions offer a promising solution for owners of next-generation Xbox consoles who struggle to store their limited storage space.

The 512GB expansion drive is slightly more expensive than the 1TB drive. The Xbox Series X owners will be happy with the 512GB expansion drive, which has 1TB of storage. However, the Xbox Series S owners who have 512GB internal space might not find it sufficient. As the new Xbox consoles approach their one-year mark, it is possible that cheaper storage options will soon be available.

Marvel’s Avengers Player Shares Skin Concepts for Iron Man, Captain America, and More

The game’s community is very concerned about the cosmetics used by Marvel’s Avengers. Fans are vocal in their requests for alternate outfits for their heroes. This is why the discussion about skins is a constant topic of conversation within the Marvel’s Avengers community.

Fans continue to create new cosmetic designs, regardless of whether they are inspired from comic books or television adaptations. BrockSolid Designs, a fan of the game, has created elaborate concepts that let them share their passion for the iconic characters.

BrockSolid Designs offers custom skin cosmetics concepts that they wish to see in Marvel’s Avengers. Skins have been created for Captain America, Iron Man and Hawkeye as well as Wolverine. BrockSolid Design offers two different Captain America cosmetics. The first is the 1941 Captain America appearance, while the second is the zombie Captain America, as shown in Marvel’s What If …?. Anthology. The 1941 classic look is striking, with bright pops in blue, red, and white. While the zombie look shows a blue discoloration to his skin underneath his MCU gear.

BrockSolid Design’s models for Iron Man include a Model 51 Prime and a Proto-Classic cosmetic. The latter is an alteration to Marvel’s Illustrious skin, which BrockSolid Design designed for Iron Man. Marvel’s What If is another Marvel’s. A skin featuring a zombified Iron Man wearing no helmet is also included. Clint Barton’s Hawkeye is not given an original or unusual outfit. Instead, he gets the Civil War-inspired Civil War skin.

Spider-Man will still be able to visit Marvel’s Avengers in 2019, but it is not clear what his default look will be, nor which cosmetics he may wear. While players may be able predict MCU-inspired skins that look similar to those in Marvel’s Spider-Man comics, it is not clear how the character will look. BrockSolid Designs has however created a classic look for the web-slinger with Marvel’s Spider-Man’s Classic Suit. However, they have added large silver web-shooters to his wrists. You can also get larger mask lenses.

Additionally, Wolverine is not yet announced for Marvel’s Avengers. This makes Wolverine a fan-requested character that could or might not be considered for downloadable content post-launch. BrockSolid Designs’ Wolverine cosmetic design was modeled after the Sideshow character in his iconic yellow and blue outfit.

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.
