Halo Infinite's multiplayer component will be free-to-play and will support 120 FPS on Xbox Series X. 343 Industries announced this on Twitter, stating that more details about the game's multiplayer will be shared at a later time. For now, we'd like to call it "Halo Free." We're very sorry.

Halo Infinite's campaign was shown off during the Xbox event earlier in July, but 343 Industries has yet to show any footage of the game's multiplayer component or offered details beyond confirming that the multiplayer will be available at launch. We know we will see multiplayer prior to launch, but without a timetable or exact date. Xbox boss Phil Spencer recently said that Halo Infinite's multiplayer was "special" and the team worked alongside professional Halo players to fine-tune the experience.

In a recent blog post, 343 Industries developers said that Halo Infinite might not have a multiplayer beta due to the difficulties of working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the same post, 343 Industries said that the team is going with a more 'classic' art style for the game, but the studio has heard the complaints that the game looks "flat, simplistic, and plastic-like," after the single-player demo was criticized for its visual fidelity. The studio also said that the game will not feature real-money loot boxes the way Halo 5: Guardians did, but the game is expected to have microtransactions in some form.
