Coincidentally, Halo Infinite’s campaign was released yesterday on December 8, garnering universally positive reviews from across the industry. The game’s multiplayer, on the other hand, was released a full month early on November 8. While it’s been generally well-received by players, Halo Infinite’s multiplayer has drawn a lot of criticism for its Battle Pass and abysmally slow progression.

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer is totally free to play on Xbox and PC, while the campaign is free with Xbox Game Pass, but otherwise requires a purchase of $59.99. The full show for The Game Awards will give out plenty of other awards, including Game of the Year. Geoff Keighly has also promised 4-5 reveals on the “level of Elden Ring.”

The Game Awards kicks off at 4:30pm PT/ 7:30pm ET on Thursday, December 9. The best way to watch the show will be streaming on YouTube and Twitch, but it can also be seen on Facebook Live, Steam, Oculus Venues, IGN, GameSpot, TikTok Live, and Trovo.
