Halo Infinite Will Be Cheaper Starting Next Week
Halo Infinite fans are excited to know that 343 Industries will be implementing some changes on their prices. They want the gaming community to know that they have been listening to what their fans have to say about their shop and microtransactions.
“We have been monitoring the discussions on the Shop, bundles, and pricing closely since launch,” confirmed Head of Design Jerry Hook. “Using data and community feedback, we are going to begin rolling out changes to how we package and price items in Halo Infinite, and it all starts next week.”
Halo Infinite’s multiplayer feature launched last November. Since then, the gaming community has been criticizing the microtransactions and cosmetics prices of the free-to-play shooter. Multiple players complained that the prices of the in-game items are just too expensive. Thankfully, the devs listened to their concerns and things are about to change.
“Starting Tuesday, the Shop experience will vary week to week,” Hook added. “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.”
Sadly, Hook has not provided any information on what the new prices are going to be. All he could say at this point in time is that they are going to be “lower.”
A Halo Infinite fan responded that there really is no need to lower prices if only the devs could provide a way to earn in-game credits. However, Hook thinks otherwise. “I think we need to do both,” he said.
“We will be trying new things throughout the rest of the season so that we can continue to learn and improve for the future,” Hook continued.
The game’s cosmetics have always been a controversial toping among Halo Infinite fans. In fact, discussions got too heated that the franchise’s subreddit page was temporarily shut down due to the toxicity.
