Halo Infinite: Multiplayer is an upcoming free-to-play multiplayer online sci-fi shooter for PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. The free-to-play model will launch when the paid base game does during “Holiday 2021”, and will be based on optional battle pass purchase (no random, Gacha-type loot boxes). Halo Infinite: Multiplayer will feature two PVP game modes at launch, namely 4-player squad Arena and the classic 8v8 Big Team Battle. No battle royale, solo or duo modes will be available at launch.
▶ Arena: Fair starts, on-map equipment, and 4-player squads offer a balanced, arena-shooter experience.
▶ Big Team Battle: Create endless combat possibilities by mixing and matching a rich variety of weapons and equipment to experience big-team mayhem that embraces the full-spectrum of the Halo sandbox.
The free-to-play model will be based on optional battle pass purchases. Battle passes will overlap and never expire, giving players the choice to buy any old, recent or current battle pass at any time. Halo Infinite: Multiplayer won’t feature loot boxes (Gacha system). Instead players who purchase a battle pass will be able to acquire and customize characters to the fullest extent.
