Halo Infinite Will Not Feature Loot Boxes, Battle Passes Are Permanent & Purely Cosmetic

During the Xbox Bethesda E3 2021 presentation yesterday, 343 Industries confirmed that Halo Infinite multiplayer will be free-to-play. Today, in a new live stream on the game’s multiplayer mode, the developer further revealed that despite being free-to-play, there will be no loot boxes, which means that there won’t be any random drops for loot and items.

Instead, Halo Infinite multiplayer will feature a Battle Pass system/battle passes. What’s unique is that these battle passes will last forever and will never expire. They¬†will remain available to pick up across seasons. Players can acquire new loot and cosmetics via the battle pass and special in-game events.

In addition, all unlocks and progression will also carry over between PC and Xbox consoles; made possible via cross-play and cross-progression. Besides that, 343 Industries also revealed that players will now be able to personalise their loadout with a custom AI and that Xbox Insiders will be eligible for special beta sessions ahead of the game’s release.

Halo Infinite is slated to launch for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC sometime in holiday 2021. In the meantime, check out the multiplayer overview trailer below:
