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. From fan desires to inside looks, catch up on the latest news right here.  Thoughts on Halo Infinite and the latest stop-motion video with World of Halo?

    Google tests a beefed-up YouTube Android app for Chromecast

    Google may be working on a fresh version of YouTube for Android that significantly improves the Chromecast experience, 9to5Google has reported. Currently, casting to a Chromecast-connected TV utilizing the YouTube app is really a minimalistic experience, together with your TV showing only basic details just like the channel name, view count, time and date. With the brand new pseudo-app, however, casting YouTube could be more comparable to using Android TV reportedly. 

    The brand new player seemed to some Android YouTube Reddit users, with a handy remote control appearing in the app. That launches a new player on your own Chromecast-powered TV that enables you to change settings like resolution, subtitles and captions, and also use granular controls like “stats for nerds,” in accordance with 9to5Google

    Whenever a video concludes, rather than just seeing the most common “prepared to watch” image, you will see a house screen with “what things to watch next” suggestions, similar to Android TV. Reddit user garethonreddit captured a screen indicating that the app is apparently an HTML5-powered web experience. Another user noted that the brand new interface appears to include more advertisements, however.

    If the brand new app rolls widely out, the richer on-screen YouTube experience would definitely give Chromecast owners more value because of their money – though many wouldn’t trade that for more ads. It will be nice to see similar improvements in other Chromecast-enabled apps that deliver a far more Android TV-like experience, as if you get from Google’s latest Chromecast devices.
