Why is this such insanely, massive news? Well, it’s because rumors have been floating around that Microsoft would be doing away with their Xbox Live Gold program. Currently, the program allows players to play online together and access a bunch of other perks. With the announcement that Halo Infinite multiplayer will be free-to-play, it further strengthens that rumor. Furthermore, it means we may soon be living in a time where we no longer have to pay to play together.
Additionally, the news of 120 frames-per-second support is mind-blowing because most games on console currently run at 30fps. In fact, the high-point that most gamers are pushing for is 60fps, something that’s seen more often on PC. So, by doubling the fps to 120, we could experience gaming the likes of which we’ve never seen before.
Halo Infinite launches alongside the Xbox Series X Holiday 2020. It will be up on Xbox Game Pass on the same day, as well.
