Halo Infinite Community Director asks for fans’ thoughts on purchasing promotional DLC

Halo Infinite has a number of exclusive cosmetics tied to the purchase of various real-world products, but a tweet from Halo Infinite’s community director asking fans for their opinion on the matter means that change could be on the horizon.

Although Halo Infinite’s year-long delay from winter 2020 to winter 2021 threw a wrench into some of the game’s marketing deals, at various points over the past two years players have been able to purchase things like Nerf guns, Halo action figures, Mega Bloks- sets , and Rockstar Energy drinks to unlock exclusive in-game cosmetics. However, some of these cosmetics, such as those associated with Rockstar Energy, are no longer readily available, meaning many players have been left out.

343 Industries’ Brian Jarrard on Twitter asked fans if they would like to see other ways to obtain these promotional cosmetics. Jarrard states that there are no current plans, but asked if fans would be okay with those who have previously marketed exclusive cosmetic products coming to Halo Infinite either through the in-game store or some other method.

Judging by the responses, fans seem to have mixed opinions on the matter. Some want these items to remain exclusive to those who bought them when they were available, while others want to see the cosmetics be earned in-game instead of being sold in the store.

Following complaints from fans, 343 recently began making changes to how some of Halo Infinite’s various cosmetics work, such as allowing visors to be equipped on all helmets regardless of their corresponding armor core and making accessories usable on a wider variety of helmets. 343 has said that the goal is to move away from the game’s controversial core armor system in favor of one that will allow players to mix and match armor parts, coatings, and attachments interchangeably.

Halo Infinite is set to receive its long-awaited Forge mode this winter. The game’s second multiplayer season ends in November, after which a free 30-team match pass must hold players over until Season 3, which launches in March 2023.
