Microsoft has shared a couple of new details on the what to expect from the PC edition of Halo Infinite. They shared these in a blog post regarding wider changes to PC gaming. Halo Infinite will support cross-play for multiplayer and cross-progression, but you can see a full breakdown of details below:
Cross-Play and Cross-Progression
Of course, this means anyone playing Halo Infinite can play together no matter what platform they are on, whether that is a Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, or PC. As far as cross-progression goes, whatever multiplayer customization items you unlock in game on one platform will move with you to another. Gameplay progression will also move between systems.
This shouldn’t be a surprise, since Microsoft has been pushing cross-play and cross-progression for several years. However, this is a big deal for Halo Infinite, as the franchise hasn’t released a main entry on PC since Halo 2.
Ultrawide Monitor Support
Microsoft stated they’re “working closely” with PC experts to make sure Halo Infinite is a “premier PC experience.” That being said, Halo Infinite on PC will include the following features:
- Support for ultrawide and super ultrawide screens
- Triple keybinds
- A “wide variety” of graphics options “and more”
Microsoft added it wants to “make sure that Halo is serving the PC community.”
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Microsoft also shared some new stats on Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC. Since its launch at the end of 2019, more than 10 million people have played it. Microsoft stated that a “vast majority” of these players were new to the series.
