Halo: MCC Players Will Have to Earn Spartan Points the Hard Way
Halo: The Master Chief Collection devs confirmed to the franchise’s following that Spartan Points will not be purchasable. For those who are not aware, these items are the in-game currency that players use to unlock cosmetics. It would seem that everyone will have to actually play the game to be able to get them.
This news is in contrast to 343 Industries’ announcement in June. At the time, they told the Halo: The Master Chief Collection community that they were considering making Spartan Points purchasable. They intended the items to be an “optional, additive alternative for players who might find the vast scope of content to be an intimidating amount of play time and want to get ahead on or skip the grind or maybe want to grab the specific items they want.”
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is packed with different cosmetics that fans will surely love. This recent announcement from the devs is comforting for existing players who are proud to have earned their in-game items the hard way.
Furthermore, it has also come to light that earning Spartan Points will now be much easier. Just last month, devs confirmed that Spartan Points will soon be earned every time a new level is reached. Players can also retroactively receive these points if they are already at a higher level. At the moment, Halo: The Master Chief Collection players have to complete the challenges to earn the said currency.
“We are also looking to enact changes to the earn rate of Spartan Points and remove barriers that players have been facing,” devs continued. “The 100 point cap is being removed, retroactive points will be granted and we will be making further adjustments to Challenges to make them more rewarding along with bringing back Double XP Weekends.”
