343 Industries has confirmed that price changes will be coming to the Halo Infinite microtransaction store after feedback from players.
The Halo Infinite store has received a lot of criticism online from players who thought the prices were too high.
A battle pass with 100 levels costs £10, but a bundle with a single armour set can cost up to £20. Smaller items are also bundled together and sold for similar prices, including certain colours for your spartans.
Halo Infinite Price Changes
However, Jerry Hook, 343’s Head of Design, stated that the team has been monitoring the discussions on the shop closely. He confirmed that they will be rolling out changes to how they “package and price items in Halo Infinite”. These changes will be implemented this week.
“Starting Tuesday, the Shop experience will vary week-to-week. We are focused on reducing pricing across the board, providing stronger values in our bundles, starting to put individual items outside of bundles, and more,” Hook said.
He went on to say, “We will be trying new things throughout the rest of the season so that we can continue to learn and improve for the future. Please keep the feedback coming during this process and I hope to see you all next week for the Cyber Showdown event!”
Hook also agreed with a commenter who said there should be a way to earn credits in game in addition to changing the shop. The 343 head stated, “I think we need to do both“. This suggests the team is looking at ways to make credits earn-able in the game.
