Halo Infinite's multiplayer will be free-to-play.

It's just been announced during tonight's (June 13) E3 presentation, and it's safe to say that fans are thrilled. 

Since the delay of Halo Infinite, which was supposed to coincide with the launch of the Xbox Series X/S back in October 2020, developers have kept pretty much everything under wraps. And fair play to them. But now we know that it'll be launching 'this Holiday, 2021' - so we assume, Christmas.

During the event, we saw brand-new gameplay footage of the multiplayer mode, where the grapple hook seems to play a big part. 

Here's what fans on Twitter had to say:

In terms of cross-play, 343 Industries, developers of Halo Infinite, have recently confirmed that there will be some serious divisions in their matchmaking, despite the excitements surrounding the game’s cross-platform progression. In a new blog post, PC development lead Mike Romero has explained the plans for ranked play in Halo Infinite’s online games.

“Social playlist and custom matches are open to all, you can play on any platform and any device with anyone you like! For ranked matches, we plan to restrict competitive playlists based on input type, not console versus PC.”
