Microsoft Confirms Halo Infinite Has Cross-Play and Cross-Progression

Microsoft confirmed today that the latest entry in the Halo series, the upcoming Halo Infinite, will have cross-play and cross-progression, meaning you can not only play with friends on other systems, but you can play across multiple systems yourself. Microsoft is also adding more features for PC gamers.

The update is listed in the general Xbox update about how it’s overhauling its PC gaming system. It reads: “We know many of you play across more than just your PC, including on Xbox and mobile. That’s why we’re excited to announce Halo Infinite will support multiplayer cross-play and cross-progression when it releases later this year. That means if you’re playing on PC, you can play with your friends on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. It also means that your multiplayer customization and progress will follow you across all platforms.”

It’s not the first we’ve heard of Microsoft’s efforts to bring cross-play and progression to console and PC alike. It added cross-platform multiplayer support for Halo: The Master Chief Collection last year, meaning that players on PC and Xbox could game together. The company is also adding more PC-friendly features, like ultrawide monitor support, triple keybinds, and advanced graphics options.

It’s good to hear positive news about Halo Infinite, as the game’s delay means we won’t be playing it for a little while longer. The game was originally supposed to be a launch title for the Series X/S, but it appears that we might not get the game until almost a year after we got the consoles. Early footage of the game got mixed results, and the developers have admitted they need more time to work on the game. Infinite’s just one of the many games delayed from 2020, but it’s definitely one of the deeper cuts.

knockout cityKnockout City, the upcoming dodgeball multiplayer EA Originals title from Velan Studios, is right around the corner. The game launches on May 21st, and will release on both EA Play and Xbox Game Pass at launch.

From 12 PM UTC on May 21st to 12 PM UTC on May 30th, the game will be freely available on every platform. Access isn’t gated, either. This is the entire game, so you can try out all of the Contracts, Playlists, and content releasing at launch without worrying about content gating.

There will also be livestreams, exclusive gear, community tournaments, and more during the game’s launch period. Any progress you make or unlocks you receive during the trial will carry over, too,if you decide to purchase the game which is nice. You’ll also get some nice unlockable stuff as well.

Sony Has Over 25 PS5 Games Are in Development, Almost Half are New IPs

Lots of things are cooking at PlayStation.


PlayStation logoThat’s according to former head of Guerilla Games Herman Hulst, who is currently the head of PlayStation Studios, who revealed the number in a recent feature from Wired. Sony is working on several sequels, including Horizon Forbidden West, God of War Ragnarök and Gran Turismo 7, but Hulst also stated that there are more than 25 games in development and nearly half of them are new IPs.

“There’s an incredible amount of variety originating from different regions,” Hulst says. “Big, small, different genres.” Sony has recently entered into several partnerships with several AAA studios recently, including with Jade Raymond’s Haven Studios and more recently with Firewalk Studios, both of which are working on new IPs, so there is clearly stuff going on behind the scenes at PlayStation.

Hulst has previously said that he’s very interested in making sure PlayStation has a diverse slate of titles. With games like the excellent Returnal and the upcoming Kena: Bridge of Spirits, PlayStation players should have more than enough new stuff to play until we see what Sony is cooking up down the line.

Microsoft is Trying Out a Xbox Series X|S Reservation Program

xbox series x xbox series sThe Console Purchase Pilot program is now available to Xbox Insiders who sign up on their Xbox One consoles, Microsoft announced in a Tweet today. Not everyone who signs up will be guaranteed a slot because of limited space, however.

The pilot program follows comments made last year by Xbox head Phil Spencer, who said that the current issues would “push us to think about new models. It could be, reserve your slot. It could be doing things more direct with the customer. Still could have the retailer fulfill the order, but just so people can have more clarity on when they can get a console. It’s something we’re working on.”

Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S have repeatedly sold out within minutes of retailers posting new stock, largely due to scalpers who go on to sell the consoles for two to three times their retail price, so this strategy should work. Sony already sells consoles straight to consumers through its PlayStation Direct program. Scalping has become such a problem that UK politicians are considering banning the practice.
