“Halo 5: Guardians” spearheaded Microsoft’s successful appearance at the E3 2015. However, it took quite a lot of work for the title to get to where it is. Following the videos launched at E3 last week, Microsoft and developer 343 Industries have released new videos, this time looking into aspects of the game.
Titled “The Road to E3,” the series of four videos for “Halo 5: Guardians” show off what the developers have done for the game as well as preparations for E3 2015. The third episode, seen below, features the Warzone multiplayer experience.
The developers discuss how to deal with the many hundreds of bugs plaguing the Warzone just days before showtime. More than discussing the bugs, fans also get a glimpse of what goes on in Warzone, some concept art of the gear, and the array of weapons available.
The development for “Halo 5: Guardians” has been in full swing. In fact, the Microsoft research team has been working closely with developer 343 Industries in ensuring that most, if not all, the bugs found in the game will be dealt with. According to Gamingbolt, a new video, seen via the link, shows off the teams at work in improving the multiplayer experience.
The team uses Trill, a new analytics engine to explore data and deal with bugs in a new way. Compared to traditional methods of going through data, using Trill and Tempe allowed the teams to find bugs more quickly, as in the case of the one involving medal awarding in spectator mode.
This could mean that “Halo 5: Guardians” will be an even more ready game when it's released on Oct. 27. Considering the developers' fast pace in gathering data and fixing bugs, a lot more issues will be taken care of before players get their hands on the game.
There also are some new insights on the resolution for “Halo 5: Guardians.” The game is supposed to run at 60FPS and 1080p, but consistently running on these specs may not be possible, Gearnuke reports. This is due to the tendency of the resolution to be dependent on the graphics load.
The varying frame rates and resolutions were spotted by those who followed the videos released for "Halo 5: Guardians,” with resolutions seen to drop to around 720p and even below that. However, even with the drop in frame rate, this reportedly may be better for gameplay, especially given the vast and expansive world that “Halo 5: Guardians” will experience.
