For those wondering, the following Halo 5: Guardians gameplay was captured on Xbox One X using the built-in Game DVR. The recordings were not altered in post.
For those interested. The built-in Game DVR on Xbox One X records 4K 60fps footage around 25Mbps. For reference, Elgato’s HD60 Pro internal capture card can record up to 1080p 60fps footage at 60Mbps. Elgato’s 4K60fps internal capture card is not available until Nov 21st so I don’t know it’s bitrate.
Also keep in mind YouTube has a not-so-good compression setting. However despite the lower bitrate recording and YouTube’s compression, the footage still looks really good but the games look even better when you’re playing them on a 4K display.
12 Sandbox items are being changed this fall for Halo 5: Guardians those include: AR, BR, DMR, SMG, Gunfighter Magnum, Carbine, Fuel Rod Cannon, Energy Sword, Grenade Launcher, Beam Rifle, Rail Gun, and Active Camo
Halo 5 now has Platinum REQ Packs, let’s find out if they’re worth buy. Short answer: No.
You’re better off buying 2 Gold REQ packs for the REQ point price of 1 Platinum REQ pack. I feel that 343 Industries needs to re-work the Platinum packs to justify the price. Rewards need to be increased instead of offering fewer rewards with a better chance of higher rarity items.
Update: Platinum Packs have now proved to be worthwhile, that is, if you’ve already completed your REQ collection in Halo 5: Guardians.
If you’re still grinding to complete your unlocks, stick to Gold REQ Packs.
If you’re grinding to reach the max Spartan rank in Halo 5, and you have everything unlocked, then these packs are great as they will grant you a lot of XP boosts that you’ll definitely need.
