Microsoft and 343 Industries have decided to celebrate Xbox and the Halo franchise’s 20th anniversary today by releasing Halo Infinite’s free-to-play multiplayer component early. Contrary to earlier rumors, this is just the beta, but it appears to include everything that was planned for the final build, such as all maps and Season 1 content. Halo Infinite’s Multiplayer Beta is now available to everyone with an Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and/or Windows PC.

From Xbox Wire:

As a thank you to the Xbox community for 20 years of support, 343 Industries launched the free-to-play Halo Infinite Multiplayer Beta and Season 1 three weeks early, available starting now for all players on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Windows PC. It will also be available via Xbox Cloud Gaming starting later today. Players can enjoy the Season 1 content including all maps, core modes, Academy features, and Battle Pass, and all of their progress carries over into the full Halo Infinite launch on December 8. For complete details on the Halo Infinite Multiplayer Beta, head over to Halo Waypoint.

Halo Infinite’s campaign mode won’t be available until the shooter’s official launch on December 8. The wait has certainly gotten easier thanks to this generous gift from Microsoft and 343 Industries, however.
