What you need to know
- Halo Infinite free-to-play multiplayer is currently available on Xbox and PC.
- A new timed mode called Attrition has been well received by players.
- 343 Industries has confirmed that Attrition will be returning in the future.
Halo Infinite's multiplayer continues to evolve, with different events and modes as part of the game's first season. After the positive reception to the newer Attrition mode, 343 Industries confirmed that the mode will return to stay, but players will have to wait a bit before it arrives.
"The team is going to bring back Attrition in a more consistent manner such as its own playlist or part of a new one down the road," 343 Industries lead multiplayer designer Andrew Witts writes on Twitter. "Thanks for playing and providing feedback on its debut. We love the mode too and we're happy to see such a positive response to it."
Looking ahead, there's more to come to Halo Infinite, including campaign co-op support, Forge mode and more. These features were previously delayed in order to ensure the base campaign and multiplayer experience were as polished as possible.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently confirmed that Halo Infinite had the largest launch of any game in the Halo franchise, with over 20 million players so far. According to Windows Central sources, 343 Industries is working with Certain Affinity on a major new mode for Halo Infinite, though it's not clear when this mode might arrive.
