Halo Infinite outlines free Battle Pass content

Written by admin

Halo Infinite’s Winter Update is almost here, and 343 Industries has outlined the content coming with the game’s free 30-tier Battle Pass.

Halo Infinite‘s Winter Update arrives tomorrow, November 8th, bringing a multiplayer XP rework and matchmaking and ranked improvements, and a whole lot more. One other addition coming with the Winter Update is a free 30-tier Battle Pass — 343 Industries outlines the content included with it in the preview video below.

Halo Infinite adds free Battle Pass with Winter Update

Head of live service Sean Baron and senior community manager John Junyszek emphasise that the Battle Pass is free. “We wanted to get this Reach content to players and we also wanted to be able to test Match XP as a progression system because we’re trying to tune it so that people can move faster through the Battle Passes,” Baron says, “because we’ve been hearing from people that not only because of the challenge system, but just because of the way that they want to move through the Battle Pass, it takes a little too long. So pairing that with the Match XP system, some of our challenge changes are updates. We want to make sure that people are moving through at the right pace and we also want to say thank you to players. So we’re really just wanting to make sure that this is available for everyone. So that’s why it’s free.”

The pair then go through some of the Battle Pass content, such as the Mark V Epic Armour Core, the Brooch Epic Armour Emblem, and a chest attachment.

Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty recently said that Halo Infinite “fell short” on post-launch content, adding that the team needs to “really get refocused” around a sustained content plan.
