On Nov. 15, 2021, the long-awaited game Halo Infinite released only on Xbox and PC through a multiplayer beta, which has prompted many excited fans to play the new Halo.

The very popular franchise in the mid 2010s sold over 65 million copies worldwide. As of Feb. 2021, the military-style, first-person shooter game has sold over 81 million copies and is said to become one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.

The beta offers 10 full maps, seven of them being area maps and the other three being called the ‘Big Team Battle’ maps. There are two categories with 11 game modes, seven modes being in area category while the other four are in Big Team Battle mode.

There are a lot of game modes that you can play in the beta. You can buy a battle pass for $10 to unlock a ton of character parts, colors, and skins to choose from.

Gameplay is amazing with different types of weapons that you can choose from to wipe out your enemies.

Halo Infinite multiplayer beta is free to play, so hop on your Xbox or PC and give the beta a try. Who knows, maybe you’ll like the beta so much that it’ll make you buy the full game for that beautiful Halo story.
