Details for the upcoming Halo Infinite PC launch later this year arrived today. If you are anticipating a quality port, 343’s got the hookup. “We’re not just shipping a port of the console game on day one. We really are building it from the ground up to be a great game for PC players who love to customize the experience the way they want to,” 343 Studio’s Joseph Staten proclaimed.
The PC edition includes ultra-wide support, frame rate settings miles above the console version, triple key bindings, and numerous configuration options. The provided video touches on the anti-cheat software that will be utilized and the cross-play and cross-progression with the console edition.
Also announced today by 343 is a partnership with AMD to create a brand-new graphics card. The Radeon RX 6900 XT limited-edition GPU looks like it came straight out of the Pillar of Autumn wreckage.
The limited-edition GPU is directly inspired by Master Chief’s Mark VII Mjolnir armor, if your eyes are busted. This includes the 117 (sans John) and a Cortana-blue light on the backboard. Here’s the catch: the GPU will not be on sale for Bitcoin miners to swipe, but AMD, Halo, and “other partners” will offer a chance to win one over the next few weeks. Outside of the claim that it’s the fastest card AMD has ever produced, nothing is known about the actual specs of the card, so we must wait and see.
The first Halo game to release since the disappointing Halo 5: Guardians in 2015 will finally happen in a few short months on December 8th. If you anticipate getting the correct version of the game, make sure your rig is equipped appropriately. Care of the Steam Page, here are the specs:
