Microsoft announced the surprise launch of Halo Infinite‘s multiplayer during its Xbox 20th anniversary stream today. Technically, this is an open beta, but it’s very similar to an official release.
Halo Infinite is set to come out on December 8 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. The single-player campaign will still debut on that day. Unlike the campaign, the multiplayer component is free-to-play.
The company, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the release of the original Xbox console and the first Halo game, said the first season of the game’s multiplayer mode will begin Monday with a public test version on personal computers and consoles.
The title was delayed from last year when it was supposed to go on sale with the new generation of Xbox consoles, the Series X and Series S. The retail version of the game with campaign mode goes on sale Dec. 8.
