Halo Infinite’s multiplayer will be free to play and run at 120FPS, leak reveals

Halo Infinite was announced earlier this month during the Xbox Games Showcase event.

In our first-ever look at Xbox Series X footage of the upcoming game, we saw Chief battling his way through a new planet, and face-off against familiar Banished Covenant enemies.

A quick look at the minimap suggested that the game will be a more open-world offering than what we've seen before – a large map, icons and more suggest this will be a more player-lead experience than what's traditional in the series.

Beyond that, though, Microsoft didn't really explain too much about the game and what we can expect from the title when it launches later this year.

This week, though, a retailer listing and other sources seems to have revealed more information about the upcoming Xbox Series X game.

Halo Infinite will feature a free-to-play multiplayer mode and run at up to an eye-watering 120 FPS on Xbox Series X, according to the leak.

British retailer Smyths Toys uploaded a Halo Infinite listing for Xbox Series X which noted:

"The legendary Halo series returns with the most expansive Master Chief campaign yet and a groundbreaking free-to-play multiplayer experience. Enjoy up to 120 FPS and greatly reduced load times creating seamless gameplay with Xbox Series X."

Xbox insider Klobrille took to Twitter to insist the listing is accurate, and that Halo Infinite's multiplayer will indeed be free-to-play.

Klobrille offered some extra information, too, noting that the 120 FPS reference in the listing as targeting in the game's Arena mode on Xbox Series X.

The multiplayer setup will be monetised via Battle Pass – similar to what we see in Call of Duty, Apex Legends, Fortnite and other games – and will include customisation we haven't seen in the Halo franchise before.

Halo Infinite will be the 'most ambitious campaign' the series has attempted, and features a new Halo ring that's 'several times larger' than previous games put together, as per 343 staff.

The title will launch alongside Xbox Series X later this year.
