Halo Infinite's multiplayer is free and supports up to 120 fps, Microsoft announced. The news comes after a leak in the Smyths Toys Superstores, which briefly published details (Google Cache) on the Halo Infinite multiplayer mode on an advertising page this week before they were quickly removed as soon as the Internet discovered the references.
"The legendary Halo series returns with the most extensive Master Chief campaign to date and a groundbreaking free multiplayer experience," the list said. "Enjoy up to 120 FPS and greatly reduced load times for seamless gameplay with Xbox Series X."

Klobrille, an Xbox leaker that revealed earlier details of Halo Infinite, confirmed the claim that multiplayer can be played for free. The Leaker also claims that Arena mode will aim for up to 120 fps – which Microsoft has also confirmed – and that the multiplayer Halo Infinite will include a Battle Pass system and new customization options (which the company doesn't have).
343 Industries hasn't said much about the multiplayer aspects of Halo Infinite yet. The game developer posted a long blog post yesterday, answering questions about Halo Infinite, including criticism of in-game graphics and graphics.
"In many ways, we agree on this – we still need to address some of these areas and improve fidelity and overall appearance for the endgame," said John Junyszek, Community Manager at 343 Industries. "The build that ran the campaign demo had been in progress for a few weeks. A variety of graphical elements and game systems were still being completed and polished."
