This week, Microsoft made a surprise announcement during their Xbox 20th anniversary livestream that the free-to-play multiplayer of Halo Infinite was launching early in Beta. Since we’ve now had nearly a week of playing the game, we wanted to know how are you finding Halo Infinite Multiplayer so far?
The launch of Halo Infinite Multiplayer is pretty significant, not just because it’s the next big Halo game, but also because it is launching simultaneously on consoles AND PC at the same time. Long gone are the days when Halo launched exclusively to the Xbox console, now opening it’s multiplayer (and eventually, the full campaign) to the entire PC community.
But how is it exactly? I’m sure many of us have either transitioned from console to PC or had a console as well as PC to play certain games on, and I’m sure many of us played Halo back in the day on Xbox. Even newcomers can get a taste of the nostalgic action thanks to the Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
That’s all to say that Halo is launching in it’s biggest state yet, and it has some pretty big shoes to fill. Not just because of the brand itself, or the PC launch, but also because of the major delay from last year. It’s proven pretty popular already, but as is the case with many AAA titles recently, that doesn’t necessarily reflect on actual quality.
So what do you think? How are you finding Halo Infinite Multiplayer so far? Does it live up to the hype? Does it feel just like old Halo? Or does it feel more akin to other FPS multiplayer games? Is that a good or bad thing? And what do you think of the Season 1 Battle Pass at the moment? Are the cosmetics worth it? How is the progression? Let’s debate!
