Halo Infinite free-to-play rumours have been slowly circulating the internet for the past few months, but those rumours appear true following a new listing by the Smyths Toy Store website.
The online toys and video games website prematurely released new information confirming the existence of Halo Infinite free-to-play multiplayer alongside a few more key details regarding the upcoming first-person shooter.
Smyths‘ listing explains that while the game’s campaign will be the most expensive single-player adventure in the series yet, the Halo Infinite free-to-play multiplayer component will also be a huge upgrade for the series, especially on Xbox Series X.
The store listing claims that Halo Infinite multiplayer will run at a blazingly fast 120fps on Microsoft’s next-gen console, double the performance of the current-gen Xbox One and Xbox One X version.
Industry insider Klobrille also explained that the game’s multiplayer will feature a battle pass system with customisation options that are “completely new to Halo”. The remaster of Halo Reach for the Master Chief Collection also featured a battle pass; that version required no additional purchases which is what Infinite has promised so far.
Since everyone is covering this topic, I might just go ahead as well.
– Halo Infinite multiplayer will be free-to-play
– Arena aims for 120fps on Xbox Series X
– Battle Pass system
– Customization options completely new to Halo
