Is Halo Infinite free? Let’s clarify this aspect because there are those who may have doubts about the distribution model adopted by Microsoft and 343 Industries for the new Master Chief game arriving in December on Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and PC.
Halo Infinite is not a free game , it is a premium game sold at full price (69.99 euros) to access the entire experience (campaign and multiplayer) while the multiplayer sector can be downloaded for free as free to play , therefore following a model of business already successfully adopted by Call of Duty Warzone, Fortnite and APEX Legends, just to name a few.
If the multiplayer of Halo Infinite will be free to play, the same does not apply to the campaign, to access the story mode you will need to buy the full game or alternatively have an active subscription to Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate .
Like all Xbox Game Studios games, Halo Infinite will be on Game Pass from day one (set for next 8 December), this means that all subscribers will be able to access the full game without the need to buy the single game or spend other money, except for any aesthetic in-app purchases related to microtransactions in multiplayer, however not mandatory for the purposes of experience.
This week 343 showed the Halo Infinite campaign allowing us to take a first look at this mode after the presentation of the summer 2020 warmly received by the public and which forced the studio to postpone the game to 2021.
