Halo Infinite

Developer 343 Industries has revealed more information regarding the development of Halo Infinite, and the Slipspace Engine.

The reveal trailer shown at E3 ran on the new Slipspace Engine, culminating as a tech demo for fans to see what is to come. The engine was created in secret along side the post-release patches of Halo 5, since the developer knew it wanted to make a bigger game next time. In a blog post on its website, the team shared some information about the game:

“When we started this project, the team’s vision for the game was ambitious – so much so that we knew we had to build new tech to fully realize our goals for Halo Infinite.”

The developer mentioned that the game is still a long way out, but it wanted to share the progress and showcase the new technology and art style. The new style, headed by art director Nicolas Bouvier, will be based on fan feedback and the most iconic parts of the Halo franchise. The team will be working on modernizing the art so it can draw out all the power from the family of Xbox systems.

To combat the long wait for the game, 343 will perform some ‘flighting programs’ where players will be able to play the game with the developers and give direct feedback during the development. The ‘flighting program’ will be similar to one used in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Zone of the Enders Konami

Konami has said that it is willing to remaster more games if fans ask for them.

During an IGN interview at E3 about Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars, Konami brand manager Benjamin Kinney expressed the company’s willingness to produce more remasters:

“Eventually if you’re loud enough and you speak with one voice, anything is possible.”

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars is a remastered version of the PlayStation 2 game featuring a new VR mode, coming to PC and PlayStation 4. The title was initially announced at Sony’s Tokyo Games Show in 2017.

The remaster will come native at 4K with recreated textures, updated particle effects, and new control schemes to name just a few of the many improvements across the game. The title also includes a new Very Easy mode so players can experience the story.

The most notable addition is VR support. Playing Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars in VR will put the gamer in the cockpit of Jehuty, the character’s giant mecha. Konami has recreated the cut scenes and assets to contribute to an immersive situation. The developers have worked with first-party VR companies such as PlayStation VR and HTC Vive to refine the game, making it as smooth as possible to reduce any chance of motion sickness.

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars has a gallery mode with VR where users can tumble and look at various models in game. The game will sport “next-gen audio,” supporting Dolby Atmos and Dolby 7.1 surround sound.

The first game has not been remastered for the PlayStation 4 nor VR, but if the fans ask for it, Konami may listen.

4K and VR demos are available on the PlayStation Store to download.
