With a release date for the Halo Infinite only days away, many gamers are already itching to buy the game. Of course, it's just a game and we all want to have fun playing it, but if you're one of the thousands of gamers who don't know how to release the game or the date yet, there are some simple steps to help you get the game out. Here's what you need to know.
First, log into your Halo Store account and go to your game downloads page. This is the page where you will find all the available versions of the games you can download. Selecting one should automatically download it and put it in your downloads folder, however, if not, you may need to go to the downloads tab and select a download from the list that's listed there. Once downloaded, you can move on to getting your game out and setting a release date.
The next step is to determine the game's release date by going online and entering the number that appears at the bottom of your screen. This number represents the day and time of the day the game will be released. It's important to note that this day and time will change. It may even become the actual day of the game's release, but the time of day has already been determined by Microsoft. When the game comes out, the countdown will begin.
You can also set a release date in other ways. For example, you can post on your Xbox Live profile that you're planning to play the game. If you're going to play a tournament and have an entry fee, post in the forum that you will be playing. You can also create a “game jam” where you'll all agree to play a certain version of the game as long as you all agree to play the same version of the game at the same time. Keep in mind though, you don't want anyone posting in the forums with the same version number that the game actually has. You want people to compete and not race each other. Also, make sure that when you're posting, you provide a specific time of day and date so that no one else can come along with the same version number.
After you've set the release date, don't wait until the last minute to start playing the game. You will miss out on the experience if you wait until the last moment and then find out that you are too late. To maximize your enjoyment of playing the game, play when you're not feeling stressed out because you're trying to make it and have some time off your hands and legs.
Once you've set the release date for the game, let it be known. That way, everyone in your friends list, whether you use your real name or a nickname on the forum, will know that you're releasing it.
