Xbox Game Studios released an open beta version of Halo Infinite multiplayer yesterday as part of its 20th anniversary celebration. The game is currently available to download for free on Xbox and Windows PC systems, and includes access to Season 1, progress of which will carry over to the launch of the main game on December 9, 2021.
How to download Halo Infinite multiplayer?
On Windows PC, Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode can be downloaded for free via Steam or the Microsoft Store, occupying a disk space of 26.04 GB.
The campaign, on the other hand, is available to 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 main page, where you can simply hit the download button. However, online gamers have been reporting blue screen errors when initially launching the game. The Microsoft team is aware of this and has offered a simple workaround until they try to create a patch. The solution is as easy as turning the device on and off, as you can see in the tweet below.
Two @Aura tips for you:
1) Restart your console and you should get a message to update Halo Infinite. If that doesn’t work, go to AFK for a moment and try again later today.
2) Once you’ve loaded it up, head over to customizing your Spartan, weapons, and vehicles. 🏆

Halo Infinite multiplayer season 1 includes a collection of classic maps and game modes ranging from Arena (4v4), Big Team Battle (12v12), and Academy Training mode. It also features a Battle Pass system, where your in-game XP accumulates over time to bring you special rewards and cosmetics. Priced at $ 10, the system will update you with a set of daily and weekly challenges that significantly increase your XP.
Developed by 343 Industries, Halo Infinite serves as the third chapter in the “Reclaimer Saga” and follows the Master Chief as he searches for a new AI known by the codename “The Weapon.” During its initial reveal, the game was poorly received by outdated and visually atrocious graphics, prompting the company to remove the game from its December 2020 release list. Since then, developers have improved its appearance and mechanics and released a campaign overview preview.
