After attending the Halo Infinite multiplayer preview event, Dr Disrespect claimed the game felt “empty” due to the lack of proximity chat and urged the developers to add it.
Dr Disrespect has been interested in Halo Infinite since its first announcement. The tech preview of August 2021 had “worried” him.
However, after getting “inside information” about the possibility of having a battle royale mode, he was more optimistic about it.
He took part in the multiplayer preview event to see what it’s all about. After playing for several hours, he had a few positives to take away, but he couldn’t shake the feeling of “emptiness” due to the lack of close focus.
âI mean, when I play it, I have this empty feeling of playing it,â he said.
âThere’s like this energy around the game when I play, it’s weird. I just feel like it’s low. Like, the hype, the energy, you don’t feel it, man.
He claimed that every lobby “felt dead” to him. TO correcting this, he suggested that it was âobviousâ for the developers to add a proximity chat, and he explained why.
“The proximity chat creates energy around this particular game you are playing.”
The Doc admitted that the game “feels good” differently.
âI have no problem with the way the game feels,â he said. âDesigning the map, I had no problem with that. I like the three cards we were playing. Good variant. Both fictitiously and spatially.
Dr Disrespect didn’t want to be too quick to judge the game, however.
He admitted it was not yet finalized and told fans he would need to see “the whole package” to reach a verdict.
This includes everything from maps and how they play to available modes, how the ranking system works, and more.
The Halo Infinite release date has yet to be locked. However, it is said that it will be released on December 8, 2021.
