Gaming communities have been abuzz with news, reviews and reactions surrounding the first technical preview of Halo Infinite. You heard it from us that the developers of the Halo franchise, 343 Industries, were inviting hundreds of thousands of Halo Insiders for the first technical preview of the game. And as promised, the company held an hour long livestream on its Twitch and YouTube handles to showcase what the players can expect at the first technical preview which starts today, July 29, 2021.
Halo Infinite, the latest offering in the Halo franchise has been under development for quite some time now and excitement was therefore unusually high surrounding this livestream. Over the past few days, little has been discussed on gaming forums on social media platforms like Twitter and Reddit, apart from a discussion of who has received an invite, how to register for the Halo Insider program and since the livestream, the reaction to it.
Opinions range greatly from optimistic and positive to greatly negative. However, the number of negative reviews is far less than the positive once. We headed over to the livestream and let us just take a moment and express how worth the wait and excitement it was. Many have appreciated the company’s decision to take their time and space to develop on the gameplay and the results has mostly stunned us all.
They acknowledge the fact that it is still a work in progress and the technical preview is an attempt on the company’s end to try and test the game in its development phases in as many devices as possible. This is being done to get a perspective on the players’ opinions and ensure that the final product turns out glitch free. The technical preview which is the first amongst many will be available to select members of the Halo Insider program.
