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?

    Peacock Subscribers Past 42 Million Because of The working office and WWE

    NBCUniversal’s streaming gambit seems to have paid off, as Peacock now has over 42 million people signed up to stream everything from The Office to old episodes of The Ray Bradbury Theater. The rising streaming platform reported good numbers for the first quarter of 2021, with the signups number rising from 33 million just three months ago. This sudden uptick in interest is likely due to the combined forces of the WWE Network and The Office migrating over to the service exclusively in the US.World Wrestling Entertainment recently merged their streaming service into Peacock, just in time for fans to tune in to this year’s WrestleMania. The biggest pay-per-view of the wrestling year drew great numbers for the service, and subscribers also have access to a back catalog of hundreds of hours of vintage action from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, and even Drew Carrey for one brief moment in an old Royal Rumble.RELATED: Peacock Adds Superfan Episodes of The Office Season 1 With New ContentThis surge in viewers then combines with The Office, which was always one of the cornerstones of NBCUniversal’s streaming plans. Following the end of their distribution deal with Netflix, Peacock rolled out the red carpet for the Steve Carell sitcom with huge promotions and a new series of extended “SuperFan” episodes that will release every few months. The Office had developed a huge second life via streaming, and it seems like switching platforms hasn’t stopped that momentum in the slightest.[embedded content]Peacock’s viewership surge is listed in signups, as the service is free to enjoy at its lowest level. People can pay for access to more content and pay even more for an ad-free tier, but Peacock is measuring its overall success in its number of customers rather than its number of subscribers.RELATED: Peacock May 2021 Movie & TV Titles AnnouncedThat success was a big part of a bigger report by parent company Comcast on their earnings. CEO Brian Roberts stated that the entire corporation was off to a great start in 2021. “Our entire company performed well across the board, highlighted by another strong performance from cable… and increasing momentum at NBCUniversal and Sky,” said Roberts in a press release.
