Halo Infinite Multiplayer May Run at 120 FPS and Be Free To Play According To Retailer

A possible leak from a European retailer has suggested that Halo Infinite will have a free-to-play Multiplayer mode that will run at 120 FPS.

Halo Infinite has been one of the games of the moment since it played a huge part in Microsoft’s Xbox Games Showcase. There’s been plenty of talk surrounding the grappling hook, recreations of the game in both Minecraft and Dreams and most importantly, Craig, the now infamous brute who has now been meme’d many times.

Now, a European toy superstore may have just added some fuel to the Halo fire by leaking some massive information regarding the game’s multiplayer. A listing on the Smyths Toys website has suggested that Halo Infinite’s multiplayer will be free-to-play and run at up to 120 FPS.

While the listing has now suspiciously been removed by the retailer, quick-witted viewers managed to grab screenshots of the information. The original listing said:

“The legendary Halo series returns with the most expansive Master Chief campaign yet and a groundbreaking free-to-play multiplayer experience. Enjoy up to 120 FPS and greatly reduced load times creating seamless gameplay with Xbox Series X.”


The initial Halo Infinite multiplayer rumour was that it was delayed, however, that was quickly shot down and this rumour that it will be free to play is far more enticing to fans than any potential delay.

The Free-To-Play model has been hugely successful in games like Fortnite, Apex Legends and Call of Duty: Warzone so it’s no massive surprise to see Halo Infinite adopting it. While the game doesn’t fall into the Battle Royale genre like its counterparts, a similar “Battle Pass” system could well be implemented.

Yesterday developers 343 industries answered questions and addressed concerns around some of the hottest issues surrounding Halo Infinite – these included the art direction of the game and the chances of a multiplayer beta.

Halo Infinite is due for release on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Windows PC alongside Xbox Game Pass later this year.
