News Halo Infinite multiplayer will be free-to-play

Outed by an Irish toy website, Smyths, there was briefly an apparent reference to Halo Infinite - one of sixteen Xbox Series X launch titles, being free-to-play.

On first reading this I thought it meant that Xbox Live Gold wouldn't be required, but it doesn't exactly clarify that, more likely it sounds like parts of the online experience of the game itself will not require purchase at all.

It wouldn't be that surprising really, if it was just that, many games these days such as Call of Duty and Fortnite have a free online component and Microsoft certainly has the room to give amazing perks as we have seen with Gears of War 5 and the extremely economic Game Pass that will replace Gold soon enough.

We will have wait and see, although I don't think I will get a series X myself as I barely use my Xbox One X and I am not sure the vertical monster will fit in my cupboard.

UPDATE: Official confirmation from @halo on Twitter: But again, is this a free game or free service? Only time will tell, apparently!

Wait, so you already have the Xbox One X, which is a series X, and now they are going for series Xbox series X? :eek:

Anyway my advice is to get a good PC and just stick with that, you may throw in alot of money but the costs you'll save than buying the next console every 2-3 years as opposed to a decent PC every 10 years (my current strategy) is massive :)

But then I have been a PC-ite since.... 1991? 1990? (First PC I actually had was a 386SX back in the early 90s with Wing Commander 2 with the high tech of the time, a sound-blaster sound card)
 
Well apparently my Xbox One X is not part of the series X.
I mean you didn't want MS to keep a simple naming convention right?

Eventually there will be hundreds of versions of Xbox One and only one Windows 10

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
