Xbox and 343 Studios got a chance to premiere the multiplayer of their upcoming Halo Infinite franchise, along with one of the biggest announcements at E3: that Halo Infinite’s multiplayer will be free to play for all players on Xbox platforms. After being delayed a year ago for what fans considered quite disappointing graphics, this is perhaps the best news that could have been presented to fans, as they’ll have a chance to try the game out and see whether they’re interested in Halo Infinite’s campaign.
The first season of Halo Infinite’s multiplayer is called “Heroes of Reach”, and will allow players to access a special Yoroi Spartan armor by playing through the events of the first season. There will be future season passes, but when players acquire a season pass they won’t ever expire, even after that season is over, meaning players will be able to continue to develop it after the fact. Also, players will be able to buy older season passes if they jump in late.
Halo Infinite still has no release date, but it’s targeting the holiday.
