Halo Infinite multiplayer beta goes live today, ahead of its full launch


Rise and shine, Spartans

The full launch of Halo Infinite may still be a month away, but today we’re getting a big chunk of it. Microsoft and 343 Industries have announced that Halo Infinite multiplayer is going live today, ahead of its launch date on Dec. 8, 2021.

Announced during today’s stream celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Xbox launch, Halo Infinite will set its multiplayer beta live early. It will be the first season of Halo Infinite multiplayer, with progression carrying over to the release version of the game. It will also have Battle Pass progression, as this will mark the kickoff of Season One of Halo Infinite‘s Battle Pass.

You can find it on Steam here or through the Xbox storefront here.

Halo Infinite as a whole is targeting Dec. 8, where the campaign and other features will go live. We recently got a new look at the campaign mode for Halo Infinite, which has a much more open structure and upgrades.

Though Halo Infinite was delayed out of the Xbox Series X launch window, we’ve since had a few opportunities to tackle the multiplayer modes of it, and it looks like all systems are go for a full December launch. Sadly, that launch won’t include campaign co-op or Forge right away. Both those modes will be arriving sometime later.
