Campaign for Halo Infinite: the Digital Foundry Halo Infinite is an outstanding game. Against all odds, I believe 343 has created one of the best first-person shooters of the last ten years.

Inside The Matrix Awakens, a look at the real-time future The debut of The Matrix Awakens: An Unreal Engine 5 Experience was the highlight of The Game Awards for Digital Foundry, rather than an award or even a massive triple-A reveal. Its impact may not have been appreciated during the event because it was sandwiched between CG trailers, but once downloaded onto your console, it’s clear that this is a genuinely important moment in real-time rendering. Epic Games and partnering studios like The Coalition have created the closest thing to an interactive motion picture we’ve ever seen, with new levels…
