We have an official release date for the return of Halo Infinite finally. It is confirmed that the Campaign, as well as the Multiplayer mode, will be coming out on December 8, 2021. Moreover, its’ multiplayer mode will have an odd challenge-based progression system. The game will be available for Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S consoles as well as Windows PCs. Although the launch is coming after a year delay.
Now developer 343 Industries has announced the minimum and recommended system requirements. However, this particular announcement is for those who will play Halo Infinite on PC. It is the first in the long-running series to appear on Windows at launch. Moreover, Microsoft says it is specifically for PC. It will offer advanced graphics settings, dynamic scaling, variable framerates (up to 120fps), triple-key binds, and support for ultrawide and super-ultrawide monitors. In addition, Halo Infinite will run in 120fps and 4K Ultra HD on compatible PCs only, that too in supported maps and game modes.
Halo Infinite PC System Requirements
- OS: Windows 10 RS3 x64
- Processor (CPU): AMD FX-8370 or Intel i5-4440
- Graphics (GPU): AMD RX 570 or Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti
- Memory: 8GB RAM
- Video memory: 4GB VRAM
There’s no word on what resolution or FPS you can expect with the minimum specs for Halo Infinite.
- OS: Windows 10 19H2 x64
- Processor (CPU): AMD Ryzen 7 3700X or Intel i7-9700k
- Graphics (GPU): Radeon RX 5700 XT or Nvidia RTX 2070
- Memory: 16GB RAM
- Video memory: 6GB VRAM
Again, there is no word on what resolution or FPS you can expect with these specs. We can expect a 4K to need an even more powerful PC rig for Halo Infinite.
It looks like it will require a decent, up-to-date PC to run at optimal settings. One wouldn’t need an elusive graphics card from Nvidia’s 30 series. Although the minimum specs need at least an Nvidia 1050 TI graphics card. Meanwhile, the recommended specs ask for a much more powerful 2070.
Halo Infinite is out December 8 on Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and PC (via Steam/ Microsoft Store). It costs Rs. 3,499 on Steam and Rs. 3,999 on Microsoft Store. The latter includes support for cross-buy, so you’ll be able to play it on PC, Xbox, or both. Halo Infinite will also launch day one on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate that costs Rs. 699 per month.
