The news in chief.
Surprise! Halo Infinite’s multiplayer is available to play now, nearly a month before the game’s official launch.
You can download Halo Infinite’s free multiplayer mode right now and get playing, Microsoft revealed tonight during its Xbox Anniversary Celebration livestream.
Today’s free release does not include Halo Infinite’s campaign. You’ll be able to play Master Chief’s new adventure in full when Halo Infinite officially arrives on 8th December.
The past weekend saw numerous hints pointing to a shadow drop of Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode – and expectations were certainly high that Microsoft would deliver.
After all, it’s been a long time coming. Halo Infinite was, of course, originally due to launch alongside the Xbox Series X/S last November – before being delayed a full year for a serious round of improvements and polish.
That said, this isn’t the first time some have been able to try Infinite’s multiplayer. Wes went hands-on with Halo Infinite’s technical test back in September and said it all “feels great” – though there was a question mark over the game’s battle pass progression.
So, what do you think? Time to get playing and find out. Or watch our Ian try it himself live below:
