Xbox celebrated their 20th Anniversary last night with a special livestream, which also surprised fans with the release of Halo Infinite Multiplayer beta, now available for download. The Multiplayer for the game will be free-to-play on launch, as is the beta right now, and players can download it on their Xbox or PC right now and jump right into Season 1, “Heroes of Reach”.
Halo Infinite Multiplayer contains a couple of great game modes, Arena and Big Team Battle, both of which were received quite well during the Tech Previews of the game. Halo Infinite Multiplayer being free-to-play on both PC and Xbox opens the game up to a whole new audience, which can only mean positive things in the future for the game.
