Many Halo fans that want to run the latest title on PCs, via Steam or Xbox Game Pass are disappointed and are asking why they can’t preload the Halo Infinite campaign.

As a response, 343 Industries Community Director Brian Jarrard replied on Twitter, saying that people who have preordered Halo Infinite on Xbox and PC will not be able to pre-load ahead of its global launch.

We remind you that the game will be released on December 8th, at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.

No Halo Infite campaign preload for PC players

Master Chief’s return marks the start of a new era for the die-hard Halo fans that have been waiting for this game for a long time.

As you would imagine, this news is disappointing since many fans were hoping to download and install the game ahead of the official Halo Infinite launch.

The new content can be purchased for $60 and is available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One consoles, and Windows PCs. 

Size-wise, the campaign is not amongst the biggest out there, but you’re still looking at 25.86GB, which is fine for players that benefit from high internet speeds.

Keep in mind that Halo Infinite preorders are available if you want to purchase the campaign ahead of its release.

However, if you’re more interested in the Halo Infinite multiplayer experience is free-to-play and is live now.

But the silver lining here is that the game you’ve been waiting for is about to come out today, so you won’t have to wait for that much in order to play it.
