Halo Infinite Engine to Support ‘Next 10 Years of Halo Experiences’



Halo Infinite

During its E3 press conference, Microsoft showed off an extended trailer for Halo Infinite, with new details being revealed today.

Towards the end of the Inside Xbox livestream embedded below, studio head Chris Lee confirmed that the footage is the opening sequence from the game and was fully rendered within the game’s new Slipspace Engine.

He added that the pilot present in the footage will appear throughout the game.

Indeed, one of the goals of the story has been to connect the player to the pilot. For Halo Infinite, 343 Industries is focusing on creating an emotional response within the player and bringing back the sense of mystery and wonder from the earliest series entries.

As for the Slipspace Engine, Lee mentioned that it will form “the foundation of our next ten years of Halo experiences,” confirming that the team will continue to produce new games in this universe.

One curious statement made during the stream is that Halo Infinite will be available on the “Xbox One family” of devices. Lee specifically mentioned both the freshly announced Project Scarlett and PC, though the comment suggests that Halo Infinite may also be available on current-gen hardware, though that may have been a simple slip of the tongue.

The game is scheduled to launch in the holiday period next year alongside Project Scarlett.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players



Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
