Halo Debuts New 'World Of Halo' Stop-Motion Video Series, Episode 1 Available Now

While we continue to wait for a Halo Infinite release date other than the anticipated November 2021 window, the team over at 343 Industries has a different sort of Master Chief-inspired project to share. Using the Jazwares action figure line, the stop-motion series called World of Halo just debuted its first episode. You can watch it below. Spoiler alert: it's pretty awesome. The Jazwares line is surprisingly detailed for being a mere four inches tall and seeing them in action in this format is kind of cool to see as a Halo fan myself. From a fight to death with the iconic energy sword to seeing some of the most recognizable enemies in the Halo-verse, the first episode of this series has us pretty jazzed to see what's next. Especially being a massive collector.  [embedded content] Master Chief's badassery, glowing energy swords, grunts screaming in panic - what more could you want? Other than a Halo Infinite gameplay trailer, but don't worry about that. 343 Industries has recently confirmed that a new gameplay reveal is coming this Summer to show off what the team has been working on since criticism hit about its next-gen graphics.  In other Halo news, 343 recently shared off a new screenshot from the main campaign, which you can see here, detailing the various PC-specific settings for resolution. The team also confirmed that Halo Infinite will include cross-progression and crossplay between Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, so that anyone can enjoy the latest game without worried about being tied to one specific platform.  To learn more about Halo Infinite before the gameplay trailer drops in the coming months, you can scope out our dedicated game hub.

    Even LinkedIn now has Stories

    LinkedIn is officially embracing Stories.

    LinkedIn may be the latest platform to embrace the disappearing Stories format. The professional networking site unveiled its latest redesign which makes the company’s months-long test out LinkedIn Stories official. Today beginning, the ongoing company is rolling out the feature to all or any its users in america and Canada, with plans to push it out to everyone within the next couple of weeks.

    LinkedIn’s version of Stories is like what you’d find on Instagram or Snapchat. Have a photo, decorate it with text or perhaps a GIF and upload to your profile for all you professional connections to see every day and night (it is possible to change up your privacy settings to regulate who is able to view your Story.) And, in the event you need a supplementary reminder that the feature exists, LinkedIn will place all of your connections’ Stories near the top of your primary feed.

    That may appear just like the last feature you’d want or need on LinkedIn, however the ongoing company says there are several advantages to consider. Liz Li, LinkedIn’s senior director of product, says that early tests of the feature show that some individuals are more ready to post if they know it’ll disappear after a day, than go on their LinkedIn profile forever rather. “Members during the past have discovered sharing on LinkedIn to be intimidating,” Li told Engadget. “We’re hoping it’ll spark more conversations from individuals who just don’t really share content on LinkedIn.”

    LinkedIn is adding disappearing Stories to its app and website.

    Li also notes that Stories might help coworkers feel connected at the same time when lots of people are still working at home and could otherwise feel disconnected from colleagues. Having said that, the intention is said by her would be to keep things professional. Stories will include a rotating “question of your day” that’s likely to help to keep folks on the right track.

    “You are not designed to share exactly the same things that you’ll on other networks,” Li says. “It doesn’t mean you can’t share an image of one’s dog … however the goal would be to keep it keep carefully the conversations in exactly the same vein that you’ll have right in your workplace.”

    Besides Stories, the redesign includes various other updates. The site’s search features have already been overhauled to add new filtering options, and the opportunity to find online courses along with other LinkedIn content from the primary search tool. Messaging gets another Facebook-like feature with emoji reactions also, and also the ability to take up a video call from chat directly. Video calling, october that will roll out in, supports Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Slack and BlueJeans (that is owned by Engadget’s parent company, Verizon).
