Earlier today, an image from Halo: Infinite’s Windows Store suggested that its multiplayer mode would be free to play. And just a few minutes ago, 343 Industries confirmed this rumor. Halo: Infinite’s multiplayer mode will be free to play, meaning that everyone will be able to play it.

343 Industries has also stated that the multiplayer mode will support 120fps on Xbox Series X. Whether this will be at a lower resolution or with less detailed visuals (than those found in the game’s single-player campaign) remains to be seen.
343 Industries and Microsoft will reveal more details about the multiplayer mode of Halo: Infinite at a later date. My guess is that the game will support cross-play between PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. Or at least that’s the most logical assumption.
It’s also worth noting that the team has stated that it aims to improve the game’s graphics. This is a direct response to the huge backlash over Halo Infinite’s underwhelming single-player demo. This SP demo was running on the PC at 4K/60fps.
Halo: Infinite is coming to the PC in Holiday 2020, and will be available on both Windows Store and Steam!
