343 did a deep dive this morning into Halo Infinite's multiplayer. Here is the video of that.

Looks good and we're sticking to core Halo arena shooting which is a good thing, the ability to choose when invis or overshield are deployed is also very cool adaptation.

This was a great reveal of the multiplayer portion of the game. I am more enthused for the multiplayer but I still want to see more on the single player. 😥

Game will be DOA. 343 has absolutely no clue how to make a good MP game and retain players. It'll drop below 1000 Twitch viewers within a month.

I like that you can damage portions of the vehicles (shoot tires off for example). I am not a huge Halo fan but I will give this a go

That looks good enough. Multiplayer is Halo's strength anyway. Looks like they're embracing that.

who gives a shit about twitch views? if a game is free to play, why would anyone bother watching someone else play it FFS?

All of the popular MP games have high viewership. People enjoy watching high level play of their favorite MP games. It's why esports exists.

@NathanDrakeSwag: Seriously, don’t go out of your way to make yourself look like a complete numpty. If you’re talking mp gameplay, Halo 5 slaps each and every Sony game silly. There’s more halo 5 mp gamers now than all the Sony mp games combined.

Halo 5 MP is ass in a can. There's a reason 343 just removed literally every new gameplay addition from it in Infinite.

Well, I am glad you are happy with the direction the MP is going. But you can still bitch about the lack of Battle Royal and the 24 player count. 😎

They said the MT would be skin items and not pay to win so I am ok with that. I personally never spend $ on skins but I think that is a fair way to make money off a free game. Pay to win MT are scummy

I think you misunderstood me. I don't want BR. Believe it or not, but i skipped them all (played Apex for 2 games) and couldn't care less about a game mode where you're searching for a loadout. BR is not for me, personally, but for the massive crowd that is into Fortnite and Warzone. BR+24players simply don't match together, so its the BR fans that should be bitching, not me.

@NathanDrakeSwag: Nah dude, halo 5 was a brilliant mp game with a huge following, and you know that too. I know trolling is your thing, and you feel the need to be negative about anything to do with Xbox but you’re making yourself look silly now.

Very nice. I really enjoy these types of videos from devs and I’m pretty hyped for Halo: Infinite so I’ll definitely check this video out later on. Thanks for the heads up. 👍

So much for that huge following. Isn't in the top 50 most played Xbox games.

I've probably put way more hours into Halo MP than you have. I used to play Halo 2 and 3 nightly back in the day. I wouldn't be shocked if you've never even owned an OG Xbox. You don't strike me as someone who has any knowledge on the franchise...or anything in general lol.

@sealionact: Agreed. I thought Halo 5 mp was excellent, had a lot of fun playing it myself. Put a ton of time into and really looking forward to doing the same with Infinite.

Y'all know what I thought of the single player campaign they showed last year. This MP video was 1000 times better looking. Not so sure about the free to play part, but it'll probably be similar to how Destiny started giving away their game and added MT.

@NathanDrakeSwag: No need to embarrass yourself further. I bought my original Xbox based on 10 minutes of Halo gameplay in a store. I had a ps2 at the time, and the difference in games was night and day. Halo 3 was the pinnacle for me, but Halo 5 had the best mp gaming since 3….and my point wasn’t about where halo 5 is in the charts 7 years after it was launched- which is why I said “Halo 5 WAS a brilliant mp game with a huge following” - it was to remind you that there are more halo 5 mp players now than any Sony mp game ever made…..even after I just told you that it was not my favourite halo.

As far as having knowledge about the franchise goes, you’re right. I’ve played halo 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, reach, ODST (?) halo wars 1 and 2 and still couldn’t tell you anything beyond there’s some aliens that need killing in the game. It’s always been about fun.

You just need to take a break from the hate. Sometimes you take things too personally.

Not at E3, but releases AAA masterpieces. MS is at E3 and hasn't released anything in seven months, and when you take into account over a year of nothing on the Xbone prior to the Series X launch, it has been a long time since MS released anything worthwhile.

I beg your pardon???? Demon's Souls Remake AAA (THE best remake ever made on the planet earth), Returnal AAA (THE best game of its genre), Guilty Gear AAA, Ratchet (THE best looking title on any system, including PC), FF7R AAAA.

No matter how hard you try, you can't damage control this amount of quality in this little amount of time.

Other than the awful controller aiming I saw in the video, I liked mostly what I saw. Good thing this portion of Halo is free.

@lamprey263: same here, spent most of my time with Warzone..

I predict they may bring it back down the line as an update but since they are concentrating on nailing the classic Halo feel, I'd imagine they want to perfect BTB before doing anything else

Honestly it looked pretty awesome to me. The graphics looked much more polished compared to last year, and the gameplay just looked straight up fun.
