Halo Infinite Multiplayer Beta Now Live: Here’s How To Download

Xbox Game Studios yesterday released an open beta of Halo Infinite multiplayer as part of their 20th anniversary celebration. The game is currently available for free download on Xbox and Windows PC systems, and includes access to Season 1, the progression of which will continue until the main game launches on December 9, 2021.

How do I download Halo Infinite multiplayer?

On Windows PCs, Halo Infinite multiplayer can be downloaded for free via Steam or the Microsoft Store, taking up 26.04 GB of disk space.

The campaign, on the other hand, is available for pre-order at Rs 3,499 on Steam, while Xbox Game Pass subscribers get it for free on launch day.

On Steam, the game will also ask you to sign in to your Microsoft account before the loading screen.

On Xbox consoles, the game will appear on the home page where you can simply press the download button. However, online gamers reported blue screen errors when initially starting the game. The Microsoft team are aware of this and have come up with a simple workaround until they try to create a fix. The solution is as easy as turning the device on and off, as you can see in the tweet below.

Halo Infinite Multiplayer Season 1 features a collection of classic maps and game modes ranging from Arena (4v4), Big Team Battle (12v12) and Academy Training mode. It also introduces a battle pass system, where your in-game XP builds up over time to give you special rewards and cosmetics. Priced at $ 10, the system will update you with a set of daily and weekly challenges that will dramatically increase your XP.

Developed by 343 Industries, Halo Infinite constitutes the third chapter of the “Reclaimer Saga” and follows the Master Chief as he searches for a new AI known by the code name “The Weapon”. When it was first revealed, the game was greeted badly by outdated and visually appalling graphics, urging the company to remove the game from its December 2020 release list. Since then, the developers have improved its appearance and mechanics and have published a campaign overview trailer.

Halo Infinite Multiplayer (Open Beta) is now available globally on Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and Windows PC through the Microsoft Store and Steam.
