Halo Infinite’s Multiplayer is here for another roundup. After yesterday’s reveal, Halo Infinite was destined to receive a detailed overview in which devs speak about the multiplayer experience. Combat, mechanics, authenticity, flow, pace, and more, the Multiplayer Reveal deep dive is finally here, discovering the core foundations of the multiplayer game mode in Halo Infinite.
There are tons of mechanics, missing in predecessors, added to fulfill the gap of missing elements and linear progression, contributing to much more defying gameplay. The playing field will be a lot more elevated, as it will also serve the main purpose of a real battlefield.
With the multiplayer mode evolved by far, you will be your own Spartan in every single way.
A key component of the new Halo Infinite multiplayer experience is your personal Spartan that’s meant to grow and evolve month after month, season after season. Players will have more options than ever before to customize your Spartan and make it uniquely yours. Each season will feature a new assortment of customization pieces and components that can be earned via gameplay, challenges, events, and purchase. We’ve said this before, but it bears saying again – there will be no loot boxes or elements of chance if you decide to purchase an optional customization item. And, of course, all of Halo Infinite’s Spartan customization elements are purely cosmetic and have no impact on gameplay.
Furthermore, the developer noted that there will be both Ranked and Social matchmaking playlists.
In addition to Ranked and Social matchmaking playlists, players will also experience limited-time seasonal events with special rewards on the line. Console and PC players will play together via crossplay, while support for cross-progression means you can move freely from one platform to the other and keep working on your Spartan’s journey. Xbox Series X owners will also enjoy up to 120FPS on supported hardware, and PC players will have a wide variety of configurable settings spanning framerate to graphics to key binds and more. Of course, online isn’t the only way to enjoy multiplayer – Halo Infinite will also support split-screen on Xbox and LAN play via a local PC server.
