In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Xbox, Microsoft is making the Halo Infinite multiplayer beta available to everyone today. For free.
“343 Industries launched the free-to-play Halo Infinite Multiplayer Beta and Season 1 three weeks early, available starting now for all players on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows PC,” Microsoft’s Will Tuttle writes in the announcement post. “It will also be available via Xbox Cloud Gaming starting later today. Players can enjoy the Season 1 content including all maps, core modes, Academy features, and Battle Pass, and all of their progress carries over into the full Halo Infinite launch on December 8.”
The Halo Infinite multiplayer beta arrives early with all of the day one maps, modes, Battle Pass, and customizations available. And though Season 1 is also starting early, it will continue through May 2022 as previously scheduled to help ensure that Season 2 is as good as possible. From Season 2 on, gaming seasons will last three months.
Microsoft notes that all of your Halo Infinite multiplayer progress, cosmetics, unlocks, and stats will all carry over when Halo Infinite officially launches on December 8.
