What you need to know

  • Halo Infinite Xbox Standard Edition preorders are live on Amazon.
  • The Standard Edition costs $60 and includes access to Campaign, Multiplayer, and Forge. Note that the multiplayer is free-to-play standalone.
  • Both a physical and digital version of the Standard Edition are available.

Following the conclusion of the first Halo Infinite beta test, a preorder for the game has officially gone live on Amazon. The preorder costs $60 and includes the Standard Edition of Halo Infinite, playable on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One consoles. The Standard Edition features the Halo Infinite Campaign, Multiplayer, and Forge map creation game modes (note that the multiplayer is also available as a standalone free-to-play experience). Both a physical and digital version of the Standard Edition are available.

Notably, it doesn't appear that there are any preorder bonuses for the Standard Edition of the game, although 343 Industries may announce some in the future. We're also expecting more editions of the game to become available as we get closer to the game's scheduled Holiday 2021 launch, so perhaps there will be preorder bonuses attached to those versions of the game. Ultimately, only time will tell.
