Halo is a sci-fi franchise that is Microsoft’s mainstay to storm the PlayStation might at that time through the Xbox. The story of Bungie’s concoction with the spice of intrigue between the artificial army against the aliens became the main foundation of the game. At least until the developer was acquired by Activision and made Destiny and parted with them. Through Halo anyway, Microsoft managed to subdue the PlayStation 3, which was less popular.
The franchise that has changed hands from Bungie to 343 Industries will continue the story after its fifth iteration, Halo: Infinite with the return of the iconic character, Master Chief.
In addition to its sci-fi story, the Halo franchise has a unique multiplayer mode with its semi-open and fast arena. Microsoft even had time to open an official tournament in America there for that mode. This is also still presented by Infinite. Interestingly, if you previously need to buy the game to enjoy the multiplayer, this time, you don’t need to buy it at all.
This was confirmed by 343 Industries through its official Twitter account that the multiplayer Halo: Infinite will be present as a free-to-play mode. They also explained that the mode would have 120fps support for the Xbox Series X.
Unfortunately, 343 Industries has not explained whether they will separate the game as a standalone multiplayer and paid version Halo: Infinite or make one with the singleplayer version.
Halo: infinite is planned to be released together with the release of Xbox Series X later in 2020. The game will also be released on PC via Windows Store and Steam.
