In June, 343 Industries confirmed that Halo Infinite will use battle passes and seasonal multiplayer updates. However, unlike similar passes in other games, Halo Infinite does not expire and players can claim them at any time, even if the season associated with them is over.The developer revealed more information about how the system will work in an interview IGN, And what players can expect.
Only one battle pass can be activated at a time-sorry, the reward will not be doubled-but players with multiple passes can exchange them at will. Legendary trinkets appear approximately once every quarter, and event rewards will be separated from the battle pass. 343 also pointed out that the test flight battle pass does not represent the content of the full version.
“We want to be able to say,’Hey, look, when you put in 10 dollars, you will keep that 10 dollars,” Halo Infinite design lead Jerry Hook told the site.
The first season of Halo Infinite will be called Heroes of Reach, and the battle pass will feature Reach as the theme. All players in the Halo Infinite multiplayer game will receive Mk. VII “Armor Core” is essentially a set of basic armor, which can be customized with matching parts, and then various Mk can be obtained. VII pieces, such as shoulders, helmets and sun visors, to equip it. There will also be a chance to unlock Mk. V armor core and its customization options.
“When we are watching “Heroes of Reach” and what [lead progression designer Chris Blohm] The team working together is a very good model of how we try to tell a visual story by winning the battle pass of the character, basically through all the arriving characters of the battle pass,” Hooke said.
“Do you want Emile’s knife? Do you want Jorge’s grenade? Mix and match the way you want to create your own, or if you just want,’No, I want to look exactly like Jun’ then you can Do this. For the first time, you can look exactly like Kate with a prosthesis.”
In fact, Blohm said 343 worked with internal veterans and Limbitless non-profit organizations to ensure that prosthetic users are properly represented. “We want people to build the Spartans they aspire to be or like to be, or they look cool or represent them.”
One thing players can’t see in Halo Infinite’s battle pass: the stylish expression of the Spartans. Hook said that the developers “struggled with the Spartan dance moves”, but finally decided to oppose: “We think more traditional players will refuse the flossing of the master chief.”
However, this does not mean that Halo Infinite will have no smooth movements at all-they will be limited to personal AI assistants. “Artificial intelligence can go crazy. Artificial intelligence can do what it wants to do,” Hooke said. “This way you can maintain the feeling of militarism without having to break the classics you think.”
Obviously, it is the norm for the chiefs not to use dental floss. Halo Infinite will be released on December 8.
