343 Industries set the Halo Infinite Multiplayer beta live on PC and Xbox Series X|S following the Xbox Anniversary Celebration. Here are the playlists, modes, and ranked offerings that players can now dive into.

Microsoft and 343 surprised every eager Halo Infinite fan by releasing the Multiplayer Beta on November 15. This coincided with prior rumors of MP launching to celebrate the 20th anniversary of both Xbox and the Halo franchise.

Though we still have to wait for the full title to launch on December 8, the beta model of the Halo franchise is out for everyone to try.

Halo Infinite Season 1 will focus on the Heroes of Reach with a complete battle pass to progress through while teasing in-game events to come.
