Today, the official Halo Twitter account confirmed that Halo Infinite multiplayer will be completely free-to-play and will run at 120FPS on Xbox Series X. This comes after rumors had been building, including a listing on Smyths Toys yesterday.
We previously reported that the multiplayer might be free as part of a shift to a service model for Halo Infinite. While 343 Industries has explained that story content will take the form of updates and possible campaign expansions, expanding the multiplayer to be free-to-play makes sense for non-campaign content.
