Halo: Infinite to fix overpriced in-game store

Halo: Infinite’s multiplayer had a blast with players as 343 Industries managed to create one of the best Halo games in years, but also one of the most frustrating due to its flaws. One of the biggest issues with Halo: Infinite – the in-game showcase – will be fixed next week.

Halo: Infinite has been praised for many things, from the gameplay to the level design to the balance it has achieved by bringing fans back to the original Halo: Combat Evolved while also developing the franchise in its own way. One of the biggest moves was that multiplayer became free. As a result, there are more Halo fans than ever before. However, in order to subsidize the free-to-play game, 343i implemented an in-game storefront.

This display case has generated some controversy due to its price, structure, and value for money – or lack thereof. Addressing the issue, 343 Industries head of design Jerry Hook tweeted that “Since launch, we have been closely following the discussion of store, kits and pricing. Using data and community feedback, we’re going to start making changes to how we package and price items in @Halo Infinite – all starting next week.”

He continued : “Starting on Tuesday, the Shop will change from week to week. We’re focused on lowering prices across the board, increasing the value of our bundles, starting to move individual items out of bundles, and more.”

Hook concluded by saying, “We will try new things until the end of the season so we can continue to learn and improve in the future. Please continue to provide feedback during this process and I hope to see you all next week at the Cyber ​​Showdown!

While it’s encouraging to see that the developers are listening to and considering fan feedback, it does suggest that Halo: Infinite still wasn’t ready to launch despite already being delayed by a year. Again, this is 343 Industries’ first foray into the free-to-play market, so it’s understandable that they might not succeed the first time around. So it’s nice to hear that they are at least listening to the fans.
