Master Chief is a familiar character to most video gamers. The main character in the franchise will make a return this holiday in Halo Infinite. Developed by 343 Studios, this will be the sixth title relating directly to Spartan-117. While the majority of fans are ecstatic about the release of a new series title, some have taken issue with the game.
Despite the work that’s already gone into the title, the graphics haven’t been ‘accepted.’
The Deal With Master Chief’s Looks
On July 23rd, fans were able to catch a glimpse of the graphics. During the Xbox Games Showcase, gamers caught a 9-minute glimpse of Halo Infinite’s gameplay. We all know it takes time to refine any game and Master Chief’s new story is no different. Since the showcase, the title’s graphics have caught a fair amount of flak from gamers. Some fans are simply in it for the Master Chief’s familiar voice and suit, but others have a list of other complaints.
Here’s what one user had to say about the demo video:
Wrote down some thoughts about Halo Infinite:
Master Chief has an indian-scotish husband now I guess.
The Warthog looks like Lego.
The graphics don't look… THAT great, and there was some noticeable pop-in.
The guns look like they don't have any textures.

In response to the criticism, Aaron Greenberg, Xbox’s Marketing GM said this in an interview with Inside Gaming:
Listen, we’re in the middle of a global pandemic. It’s July, we’re far from [launch in] Holiday, you’re seeing a work-in-progress game.
According to Greenberg, the best way to see Master Chief is high def is on a 4k capable device. And it’s even better if you can play it at 60FPS. If your tech can view it the way its meant to be, check out the video here.
