Last week we covered the progress the teams behind Halo Infinite were making and the improvements they have in store for us at the upcoming Febuary update. Richard Watson, Lead Engineer on the Sandbox team informed us that their main focus was on problems with “Desync” and the “Overall online experience”.
They now addressed 5 more concrete fixes we can expect with the upcoming update. “Howdy all – it’s time for another update! This week we’re taking a closer look at some of the things landing in next week’s update, which is currently going through the certification process and is tracking towards a Thursday, February 24, release.”.
The team explained 5 of the main features of the update:
This update should address an issue that was preventing first-person animations from interpolating correctly. If you’ve ever spotted some framerate issues while clambering or reloading (or any other first- person action), you should see those run more smoothly next week.
We’ll see multiple improvements in the Campaign experience. Whether it’s addressing issues with Achievements unlocking or returning to the game via Quick Resume, the team has been working on a handful of fixes for campaign since launch and there will be more on the way.
Stability & Performance
We’ve been keeping a close eye on reports around stability and performance on PC and console. This update will have a few improvements, but we’re continuing to address opportunities found internally and through tickets submitted via the Halo Support site.
BTB Motion Tracker
Next week, the range of the Motion Tracker in Big Team Battle will be increasing from 18m to 24m. This has been a consistent piece of community feedback in BTB, especially since the update earlier this month, and we’re happy to make it a reality with this update.
We mentioned this earlier in the year, but we wanted to touch on it again – there will be multiple improvements to our anti-cheat systems in this update.
Especially the Anti-Cheat improvements will be a welcome addition to the console players. They have experienced a lot of frustartion when playing crossplay against PC-players who quickyl found their way to cheats or other exploits.
The update is expected on February 24th for both Xbox and PC
