Pre-install Halo Infinite
The next installment in the Halo saga, namely Halo Infinite, was (finally) offered a release date during the Gamescom 2021 Xbox Conference. Expected for December 8, the title can already be pre-installed for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. As a reminder, Halo Infinite will be available in the catalog from the day of its release. Downloading the game upstream will allow the most impatient players to enjoy the game the minute it is added to the catalog.
In addition, on November 15, Microsoft will put its first Xbox Series X collector, featuring Halo Infinite. It is already available for pre-order on the Microsoft Store.
