The Halo Infinite Multiplayer beta starts today
Developers 343 Industries today announced the launch of the Halo Infinite Multiplayer beta, complete with download options on PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
The news was shared during the 20th Anniversary Xbox stream, following previous leaks that a big announcement was coming.
Microsoft confirmed that November 15 would be the launch date of the new Halo Infinite Multiplayer beta, with the game’s full release still slated for December 8.
This means that starting today, gamers can play the multiplayer portion of the game at no additional cost.
A new post from 343 Industries provides more details on what’s available today, telling fans:
“As a thank you to the Xbox community for 20 years of support, 343 Industries launched the free-to-play Halo Infinite Multiplayer Beta and Season 1 three weeks early, available now to all players on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Windows PC .
“It will also be available through Xbox Cloud Gaming later today. Players will be able to enjoy Season 1 content, including all maps, core modes, Academy features and Battle Pass, and all their progress will carry over to the full Halo Infinite launch on December 8.”
343 has confirmed that when you start playing the beta, Battle Pass Season 1 will be listed as ending May 2022, which is a change from our original goal of shipping a new season every three months.
The team says this change was made to ensure Season 2 meets Microsoft’s high quality standards and that the team can complete development for Season 2 in a healthy and sustainable manner.
“Importantly, with the Season 1 extension, we’re not just extending our original Season 1 plan,” adds a message from 343 Industries.
“Indeed, we took this opportunity to add additional events, customization items and other content to Season 1 to make it an even richer experience from start to finish. For example, starting today and through the first week, you can sign up with Halo Infinite to unlock a free collection of 20th anniversary themed cosmetics.
“Following this free rewards period, our Season 1 opening event, “Fracture: Tenrai,” will kick off on November 23. This is your first of several opportunities to earn Season 1’s samurai-themed armor pieces and other customization items. .”
HOW TO DOWNLOAD HALO INFINITE MULTIPLAYER BETA TODAY
343 Industries shared several links to download the Halo Infinite Multiplayer Beta, which you can find below.
These new links point to the usual places and it seems that most players see a blue screen when trying to access the game. From what has been shared by the team so far, it may take some time for the game to be available to everyone, with a new support message from 343 confirming:
“We are aware of an issue where players get a blue screen when trying to launch Halo Infinite. Beta build works through our systems and should appear as an update on your console shortly. We’re working as hard as we can to get you in the game.”
This suggests that you download the small Halo Infinite Multiplayer download now and wait for the update to arrive before you start playing.
The easiest way I found to download the 25GB beta on the Xbox console was to go to the Microsoft Store and use the Xbox Game Pass Manage Games link for instant access.
