Can You Play Halo Infinite on Xbox One?

Digital Foundry did their usual magic and compared how Halo Infinite runs on all four Xbox platforms - Xbox Series, Xbox One, and Xbox One X. Xbox One runs Halo at a nearly-consistent 60fps on Xbox One X in performance mode. Quality mode drops the fps, as you'd expect, and it's less spectacular on the plain Xbox One.

Other significant differences include less refined textures and fewer features, though this is true on both Xbox One X and Xbox Series S. Halo Infinite on Xbox Series X includes additional environmental touches such as birds, extra stones, and minor things along those lines.

Whatever platform you pick up Halo Infinite on, it's worth playing even if only for the multiplayer.
