During Xbox’s 20th Anniversary stream, Microsoft announced that Halo Infinite‘s multiplayer component would be available to play today. The original Halo: Combat Evolved also turns 20 today, as it was released back on November 15, 2001. 81 million copies of Halo games have been sold worldwide, with more than 3 million players. Rumors of the multiplayer component being released early were leaked a few days ago and have now been confirmed.
Halo Infinite‘s multiplayer mode is free to play with no pay to win mechanics. This early release is considered a beta, which offers a snippet of the first season of content with a battle pass system. Progression made in this early release will transfer over when the full game launches next month.
Halo Infinite multiplayer mode is out now on PC via Steam, Xbox consoles, and Xbox Game Pass. The single-player campaign is still set to release on December 8, 2021. However, it is worth noting that the December release will not contain the game’s full contents, as the Forge mode and the cooperative campaign will not be ready until sometime in 2022.
