Halo Infinite multiplayer is now available as a free public beta. Microsoft surprised Halo fans by announcing the early launch of the multiplayer component – days before the release of Halo Infinite which will launch on December 8. The new experience was provided to Xbox users as well as PC users. Due to its beta nature, the multiplayer version has some issues known to the developers that should be resolved in the coming days.
Following the new announcement, you can experience Halo Infinite’s cross-platform multiplayer on your Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, or PC. You can install the new offer on an Xbox console by going to the Store app. On a PC, it can be installed for free using the Xbox app for Windows.
Some users first encountered problems with the multiplayer version. However, the Halo Support Team informed to restart the Xbox console or app on PC after downloading the game to fix issues. You can also file a Halo support ticket if you run into any issues.
It’s important to note that Halo Infinite multiplayer requires gigabytes of data. So you should need a stable internet connection to download the beta.
The latest beta includes a total of eleven different multiplayer modes between Arena and Big Team Battle. Each mode also has distinct challenges and victory conditions.
Microsoft’s 343 Industries, developers of Halo Infinite, originally previewed the multiplayer mode in July. It also brought its preview to Xbox users in September. However, the exact details of the release of the multiplayer offering have not been announced so far.
With the early abandonment of Halo Infinite comes the celebration of 20 years since the launch of Xbox. The game console was released alongside Halo: Combat Evolved – the first release in the series – on November 15, 2001.
