Halo Infinite: See How They Recorded The Vehicle Sounds For The Next-Gen Game
Check out two very cool behind-the-scenes videos that showcase how the team at 343 Industries is capturing sounds for the next-gen Halo game.
While Microsoft has yet to show any gameplay footage of Halo Infinite so far, the company has not shied away from showcasing the work that went into capturing the game's various sounds.
The audio team at 343 Industries has been posting neat behind-the-scenes videos to the Halo Instagram and Twitter pages, and the latest of these videos have now arrived.
The first is a very cool video that shows the audio team visiting a deserted mining town where they fired a propane cannon to capture sounds. Specifically, the audio team was looking to capture the sound reflections bouncing off the nooks and crannies of the derelict town.
