The Banished have defeated UNSC forces and seized the mysterious Zeta Halo, putting the survival of humankind at risk. Halo Infinite invites you to step inside the armor of humanity’s greatest hero, the Master Chief, confront the most ruthless foe he’s ever faced, and protect humanity, no matter the cost.

Enjoy true Spartan freedom in the biggest, most wide open and adventure-filled Halo experience yet. Halo Infinite is available now on Xbox One, Xbox Series XS, PC on Windows and Steam, and Xbox Game Pass including console, PC, and Cloud Gaming (Beta).

Halo Infinite is the franchise’s most accessible game yet with free-to-play multiplayer and the full campaign available on day one with Xbox Game Pass. Here’s how to get started:

Visit the Academy and slay some bots to kick off your Spartan training

Free-to-play multiplayer introduces training tools like adjustable bots and the all-new Spartan Academy to onboard new players to Halo and get them comfortable with the experience. The game also features benefits like never-expiring battle passes so players can advance at their own pace without the fear of missing out on content. Uncover collectible Spartan Armor Lockers that award cosmetic items for your personal multiplayer Spartan.

What’s more, obtain an exclusive weapon coating, Challenge Swaps, and 2XP boosts beginning this month as part of the subscriber-only Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks program. Season 1 of Halo Infinite’s free-to-play multiplayer beta became available on November 15 across Xbox Series XS, Xbox One, Windows PC, and Steam to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of Xbox and Halo. Best of all, everyone who is currently playing gets to continue their Spartan journey as progression will carry over into the official launch.

The most adventure-filled Halo campaign ever

The Halo Infinite campaign experience combines a linear mission structure that will be familiar to longtime fans with brand-new exploration of the expansive surface of Zeta Halo. ?Set on the sprawling ringworld, the game sees the Master Chief journey across foreboding warships, vast Forerunner interiors and more, collectively creating the largest-scale campaign in franchise history.

Halo “Master Piece” now in Saatchi Gallery and Musée du Louvre to celebrate launch of Halo Infinite and other memorable partnerships

A ‘Master Piece’ has been unveiled at the Saatchi Gallery in London today to celebrate launch. The painting depicts the Master Chief locked in battle with his alien enemy, inspiring those around him to become heroes. Painted by celebrated artist Iva Troj, the impressive painting can be viewed for free at Saatchi Gallery, as well as at the world-renowned Musée du Louvre in Paris, where a smaller replica will be on display until December 19.

“I was challenged to create a work in my own style, which typically has a dreamlike and sometimes fantastical quality, but ensuring that it’s instantly recognizable as Halo,” said artist Iva Troj. “I consequently spent a long time immersing myself in Halo’s universe to bring this to life in the manner of an old master but depicting a modern battle, and I hope Halo fans and gamers everywhere enjoy the results – including those smaller Easter eggs that you might not notice at first glance.”

What’s more, Xbox has also taken part in other unique activities to celebrate the launch and 20-years of franchise history. The two epic crystal collectibles with Swarovski pay tribute to the impact of Halo over the years. The Halo team also partnered with Hoonigan to build a real-life, 1,000 horsepower warthog inspired by the iconic in-game vehicle, as well as wowing fans at a recent Oregon Ducks football game with an augmented reality visit from a Halo Pelican.

Launch is just the beginning for Halo Infinite, with additional seasonal content coming in the form of new multiplayer maps, modes weapons, and more as part of the game’s new seasonal model. The overall game experience will also continue to grow and evolve over time with additions of features such as campaign co-op, the most powerful Forge map editor ever for the franchise, and more.
