Despite all of the new info about Halo Infinite we got last week, some details were conspicuously absent. Namely, Microsoft and 343 Industries weren’t talking about multiplayer, which is traditionally a major draw for the series.
Today, the official Halo Twitter account confirmed rumors that the upcoming game’s multiplayer mode will be free-to-play, making it accessible to people regardless of whether or not they purchase Halo Infinite.
Halo is for everyone. We can confirm #HaloInfinite multiplayer will be free-to-play and will support 120FPS on Xbox Series X. More details will be shared later! pic.twitter.com/9bIrppFiON

The tweet also confirms that the Xbox Series X version will support 120 frames per second – presumably compared to the Xbox One version, which likely won’t.
This free-to-play move is a big one for a series that has earned just as much (if not more) acclaim for its multiplayer modes than its single-player offerings. When the 343 and Microsoft are ready to share more details, we are eager to hear what they have to say.
