As you approach the xbox anniversary , many rumors circulated that Microsoft would surprise everyone by launching early free multiplayer Halo Infinite , and that’s exactly what Microsoft did. The multiplayer beta is available now for Xbox and PC.
This was Microsoft’s worst kept secret, as almost everyone seems to have heard that the company was going to release the multiplayer portion of its next massive game on November 15, 2021. Forbes did a thorough analysis of all the evidence and it was convincing. And, of course, everything turned out to be correct.
You can currently download the multiplayer beta version of Halo Infinite on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Series X and PC. As mentioned, it is completely free and you do not need to pre-order the campaign mode separately to have access to the entire multiplayer mode.
If you’re on Xbox, you can search for Halo Infinite or go to Microsoft website to start the download. For those looking to get the game on PC, they can go to the steam page To download it.
However, if you try to play on Xbox, you may have some issues. Many users (myself included) are getting a blue screen after downloading the game. That’s because you’re only downloading the small preload file, and it appears that the actual multiplayer game is yet to be fully released.
Update, 11/15/21 2:29 PM ET: After removing the small file Halo Infinite installed and download it again, I was able to install the full version of the multiplayer beta.
In a Tweet, Halo Support addressed the situation, saying: “We are aware of an issue where players are seeing a blue screen when attempting to launch #HaloInfinite. The beta version is running through our systems and should arrive on your console as an update shortly.
In the meantime, you just have to be patient (or play it on the Pc , as players seem to be more successful there).
