Halo Infinite to Support Cross-Play and Cross-Progression

Posted on April 29, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in PC gaming, Xbox, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X with 4 Comments

Microsoft today announced that its upcoming game Halo Infinite will support multiplayer cross-play and cross-progression when it’s released later this year.

“We’ve talked often about our ‘player first’ approach to gaming over the last few years,” Microsoft’s Matt Booty writes. “PC gaming is part of this; ‘player first’ has to apply for PC, as well, and to that end, we’ve been making investments across the PC gaming ecosystem to ensure that PC is a key part of how people can play games.”

One of those key investments is Halo Infinite, which was originally supposed to launch in late 2020 alongside the Xbox Series X|S consoles. That game will support those consoles, the Xbox One family of consoles, and the PC, and gamers will be able to mix and match between them.

“You can play with your friends on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S,” Booty adds. “It also means that your multiplayer customization and progress will follow you across all platforms.”

On PC, Halo Infinite will also offer what Microsoft calls a “premier PC experience,” with support for ultrawide and super ultrawide displays, triple keybinds, a wide variety of advanced graphics options, and more.

    I'm probably showing I'm a noob, but what is "triple keybinds"?

    I'm not aware of any AAA game that doesn't support a "premium PC experience". It's actually the first time I hear this term. l Can you even imagine a PC game released in 2021 that doesn't support 21:9 and 32:9 monitors?
