Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Halo Infinite to have free MP, support 120FPS

Good stuff hopefully its free on PC as well. And hope they have a good anti-cheat system, because most FTP games are swarming with cheaters.

I think they just want to say that Live subscription won’t be needed to access the MP.

Would MS dare try a Halo Infinite campaign exclusive to XB+PC, then have Halo F2P mutliplayer for everyone's existing and next gen hardware, on a level like Epic's Fortnite?

I wonder how many PS and Nin gamers would play and get hooked enough to buy the Halo Infinite campaign on PC or with an XB console purchase?

That tactic would certainly work if the campaign was a must-have knock-it-out-of-the-park story and gameplay... But honestly they would be better served porting MCC over and hooking them into the franchise that way.

I think the "hook" would be some MP content that is exclusive to XB, or to GP subscribers.  Probably skins, maybe some little mini quests, cut scenes, or something else that doesn't impact the game overall.  

With that said, not needing live or GP to play the PVP content seems to be counter to MS' stated goal of growing GP subscriptions.

so... Multiplayer is free, and people that spend $60 are only getting Campaign + (most likely) extra costumes/weapon skins/etc.??

I mean... they will try to sell "campaign only" Halo + ( most likely but not confirmed) "some extras" for $60!? I don't think this is a good idea...

Errr...   you know that every single month there are single-player "campaign only" games being released, right? Some of which get metacritics scores in the 90s and are acclaimed as some of the best things ever.



Curious to see how they will handle the F2P aspect. And good that they will give support for 120fps.

Well if the fidelity is close to what we saw in the demo, this pretty much is making the best out of it. Halo being a trailblazer again, being the first FPS with 120 FPS gameplay.

Being free is amazing too. Game gonna have so much reach it’ll make Halo 3 peak population look barren. Works both ways if you wanna play you play. Otherwise you have your battle pass system or whatever for cosmetics.

Fair enough. First for consoles still noteworthy

Just seems a bit arbitrary. Any console can do 120fps in a game with low enough settings/resolution, engine permitting. 

Although to stay on topic, I'm glad it's free multiplayer and I'll definitely play it.

yeah, but we talking about Halo here, Multiplayer is the flagship. I already made a post explaining my point on pag.2...



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.
