Is the Halo Infinite campaign on Xbox Game Pass?

Although Halo Infinite's free-to-play components are out now, aside from the Multiplayer, Academy, and Custom offerings, players will notice that the Campaign won't be available until Dec. 8 for those who pre-order the game for $59.99 USD. However, for those who already have Xbox Game Pass, you just might be in luck.

Is Halo Infinite Campaign on Xbox Game Pass?

Halo Infinite, 343 Industries, and Xbox Game Studio's latest iteration in their iconic sci-fi, first-person shooter franchise, released its free-to-play multiplayer mode for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on Nov. 15, 2021. Starting on Dec. 8, the campaign and full game will be available to Xbox Game Pass (Console and PC) subscribers.

Spearheaded by the efforts of developer 343 Industries and publisher Xbox Game Studios, the sixth installment in the mainline (solo) Halo campaign is finally right around the corner.

Here is the official synopsis of the Halo Infinite campaign from 343 Industries:

"When all hope is lost and humanity’s fate hangs in the balance, the Master Chief is ready to confront the most ruthless foe he’s ever faced. Step inside the armor of humanity’s greatest hero to experience an epic adventure and explore the massive scale of the Halo ring."

343 has confirmed that the story mode will feature a semi-open world design.

Despite Master Chief returning to his roots fighting once again on foreign alien ring floating in the middle of space, it appears that this backdrop will be featured throughout the campaign of Halo Infinite and not just a single level.

Open world designs in story modes simply feel bigger and more immersive than segmented levels, as well as give players the freedom in how they approach the game's missions and combat encounters.

Couple this with the glimpses that Halo Infinite's enemy factions will show resemblances closer to those of the original trilogy, perhaps 343's latest game could live up the hype of its beloved series' earlier installments.

Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft's video game subscription service, has picked up major momentum in the past year as more and more third-party publishers launch their brand-new games on the platform.
