Microtransactions spoils otherwise awesome Halo Infinite multiplayer experience


By Ray Ampoloquio November 21, 2021

For a long time, Halo was a premium game that required a full purchase for gamers to enjoy the multiplayer experience. 

With Halo Infinite, 343 Industries decided to change things up.

While Halo Infinite's single-player experience still needs to be bought, the multiplayer component is separate and completely free. 

Unfortunately, the decision hasn't been all sunshine and rainbows. 

In particular, fans are complaining about the game's intensified focus on microtransactions.

One fan, in particular, found out that players will need to spend more than $1,000 to get all the cosmetics in Season 1 of Halo Infinite.

To make matters worse, all cosmetics in Halo Infinite will need to be bought using real money. 

Thankfully, Halo Infinite still hasn't fully launched yet so 343 still has time to work out all the game's proverbial kinks.

Halo Infinite is expected to launch in full on December 8, 2021.
