Halo Infinite’s multiplayer has pulled off a surprise launch, Beyonce style, ahead of the campaign’s December release date and announced a slew of other entertainment-related surprises. If you’re here, you’ve already started up the game, have moved in, and are starting to make yourself comfortable in what will be the premiere Halo experience of this gen. However, you might be wondering how to tweak your visual settings. In particular, making the choice between which graphics setting you should choose. In this guide, we’ll go over the choice of whether you should go with quality vs. performance modes in Halo Infinite and what the difference is.
How to Change Quality vs Performance Mode in Halo Infinite
First, let’s go over how to actually change the graphic setting in Halo Infinite. First, start the game and then head right on over to the settings. Tab on over to Visual and you’ll see there your Graphics Quality setting and two options: Quality or Visual.
If the option is greyed out, then congratulations! You don’t have to choose because you’re playing on an Xbox Series X with a TV that supports 4K/60FPS gameplay so just enjoy playing Halo Infinite at the highest possible level that your console allows.
Which Should You Choose?
Now, if you’re playing on an Xbox One X or an Xbox Series S, or a TV that doesn’t support 4K/60FPS, you will have to choose whether you want 4K visuals (quality) or 60 FPS (performance). If you choose quality, you’ll still play at 30 FPS at least, but you’ll get 4K visuals. If you opt for Performance, you’ll play at a crisp 60 FPS but will have to settle for 1080p.
As for which is better and which you should choose, well, it comes down to personal preference. The personal preference of this particular is that you go for performance. While, sure, Halo Infinite does look pretty in 4K, it still looks pretty in 1080p. The jump from 30 FPS to 60 FPS is far more noticeable and impacts your gameplay in a more significant way.
This is certainly true at least in multiplayer. When the stakes are a bit lower by yourself in the campaign, perhaps consider switching back over to 4K so you can soak in all of the sights.
That’s all you need to know for how to change your graphic setting and which to choose between performance and quality in Halo Infinite. Hopefully, this cleared everything up.
