Halo Infinite has cross-play between PC and, and as you might imagine, the devs at 343 are taking steps to make sure players feel like they’re getting a fair shake whether they’re playing with controller or mouse and keyboard. But if you want to throw all conventional gaming wisdom away, you can enjoy a ranked competitive playlist that pits both input methods against each other.
Of course, if you just want to be matched against players using the same type of controls as you, you will be able to hop into ranked playlists specific to controllers or mouse and keyboard. But a third option will go full cross-play between both methods, and honestly, given the generosity of modern aim assists, I’m not sure which side will have the easier time.
That’s just one of the details 343 revealed as part of a big video breakdown of PC features, though many of the other reveals are a bit more nebulous, or fully expected. The devs have anti-cheat plans in mind that will do the job without invading the privacy of legit players. Progression will be shared between platforms, and the game integrates with social features on Steam and Discord, not just Xbox online services.
