Halo Infinite multiplayer to be free-to-play on Xbox Series X

At this time, Xbox has chose to remove the 12 months Xbox Live Gold SKU from the Microsoft online Store. In a tweet, the leaker said 343 Industries was aiming for 120 frames per second in its arena mode, and would offer both a battle pass system and customization options that are "completely new to Halo".

Leaks from a listing on Smyths Toys have suggested that the multiplayer side of Halo Infinite will be going free-to-play when it's released alongside the Xbox Series X later this year.


Microsoft requiring Xbox Live Gold to play free-to-play multiplayer games on Xbox One has been a regular point of criticism in recent years, especially since Sony doesn't require PlayStation 4 players to subscribe to PlayStation Plus to play games like Fortnite. The retailer claimed that the game will feature a free-to-play multiplayer component and action at up to 120 Hz.

Would you be sad to see Xbox Live Gold go away? This news wasn't revealed during last week's Xbox Series X gameplay showcase that disappointed many gamers with the state of its graphics, but maybe it's enough to reinvigorate some fans of the FPS. Keep in mind that Microsoft would still make money from free-to-play games by taking a cut on in-games purchases.
