Halo Infinite’s multiplayer battle passes never expire, can be purchased any time
343 Industries is taking some new directions with Halo Infinite‘s multiplayer component, and that difference is going to especially be seen in the game’s character customization unlocks.
While there will be no loot boxes in the game, there will be battle passes. However, the team at 343 wanted to take a difference approach to passes from the other similar offerings that exist out there.
“The Halo battle pass will never be taken away from you,” explains Christopher Blohm, lead player investment design, in a new Halo Infinite Multiplayer Overview video. “What I mean by that is, once you buy it, it’s yours and does not expire. In future seasons, you can purchase old battle passes as well as the current battle pass, and choose which battle pass to put your progression towards.”
To keep the battle passes feeling special, all of the rewards earned through pass progression will only be available that way—and players will not be able to buy their way through a battle pass. If you want the customization options it includes, you’ll have to earn them.
Halo Infinite, and its free-to-play multiplayer component, are coming to Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC this holiday.
