Halo Infinite will feature multiplayer cross-play and cross-progression between Xbox and PC
Halo Infinite will not only feature multiplayer cross-play between Xbox consoles and PC, but it will also feature cross-progression, according to a recent update from Microsoft.
In a new blog post titled “Continuing Our PC Gaming Journey in 2021 and Beyond,” Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty revealed that players on PC will not only be able to play with their friends on Xbox, but they can also carry over their multiplayer customization and progress from PC to Xbox and vice versa. In other words, Halo Infinite will join titles like Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, and Deep Rock Galactic as a Play Anywhere title.
It’s unclear, however, if Halo Infinite‘s cross-play and cross-progression will apply to the single-player campaign, which can also be played cooperatively with up to three friends.
Halo Infinite on PC will also feature support for ultrawide and super ultrawide monitors, triple keybinds, and way more advanced graphics options than what will be found on the Xbox version. Seeing as how Infinite is the first Halo game that’s launching for PC and consoles simultaneously, it sounds like Xbox and 343 Industries are taking that extra step to cater to the PC players.
Not only will Halo Infinite‘s multiplayer feature cross-play and cross-progression, but it will also be free to play. Xbox confirmed that back in July 2020, as well as the fact that Infinite‘s multiplayer will run at 120 frames per second on Xbox Series X (if you have the right display for it, of course).
Halo Infinite still doesn’t have an exact release date, though it’s expected to launch this fall. As far as we know, it’s still scheduled to launch on Xbox One consoles, as well as PC and Xbox Series consoles, though the most recent screenshots have all come from the PC version.
