Although 343 Industries have had little to say regarding the online modes, there appears to be Halo Infinite free multiplayer on the cards if one retailer’s listing is to be believed.
Well, well, well… What do we have here, then? Retail stores leaking things again? Of course we do. This time, the main culprit is Smyths Toys. On their Xbox Series X page, they posted some new details about Halo Infinite. One of these, which is drawing the most interest, is that it will feature a “free-to-play multiplayer experience”.
On top of this, Halo Infinite will also aim to operate at 120FPS on the Xbox Series X. A Battle Pass system will also be introduced, which may not come as a surprise to anyone who’s played games at the moment. A lot of multiplayer titles, especially those with a competitive scene, feature microtransactions and battle pass features. I’m not surprised that Halo Infinite will do the same. There will also allegedly be brand new customisation options. Well, options that are new to the Halo Series, at least!
Halo Infinite Free Multiplayer Might Signal Free Multiplayer For All
There have been reports that Xbox will be scrapping it’s Xbox Live subscriptions as a whole, making online multiplayer an experience for all titles. This discussion was sparked from the removal of the 12-month and 24-month options for Xbox Live subscriptions online. Could this mean that the Retail Listing was just referencing this unannounced decision?
If you’re interested, one of us also thinks that the Xbox Series X is going to lose the console race with PlayStation 5. But is this a good thing? They think so. Check it out here.
