Can you play Online Multiplayer even after Xbox Live subscription is over?

I’m so confused on this games idea of a F2P. Does it mean we can play online without an Xbox Live subscription? Do we need to play with a paid subscription? Because if we need to that contradicts the idea of a F2P game. Especially one that desperately needs a larger player base. I actually need to know because I don’t do reoccurring billing for my subscription. You know, because I have a life outside of my Gaming time.

Halo infinite can be played without xbox live gold or game pass. You can still make in game purchases too. You do not need to pay 60 dollars a year.


Thank goodness. F2P isn’t all bad then.
