Halo Infinite system requirements – You’ll need a gaming CPU as strong as Cortana

In celebration of Halo’s 20th anniversary, Microsoft has released a free-to-play open beta of Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode, that’s available on Xbox Game Pass and Steam. Thankfully, it doesn’t take a powerful gaming PC to get stuck into the game, which is understandable given that it’s also available on the now eight-year-old Xbox One console.

Despite the game being a cross-gen release, developer 343 Industries has made sure that Halo Infinite’s visuals aren’t held back by legacy hardware. However, this means that moving between quality presets requires a sizeable difference in hardware in terms of both CPU and GPU, particularly when moving from Low to Medium.

Halo Infinite has a decidedly lighter footprint compared to many other FPS games released in recent months (we’re looking at you Battlefield 2042 and Far Cry 6), and only requires a modest 50GB of space to install on your storage solution of choice.
