Microsoft has announced that subscribers to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will gain access to monthly bonuses in Halo Infinite, just for being signed up for the service.
In a new blog post shared on the Xbox website, the company announced the news that those signed up to the subscription service will be able to gain access to additional content bundles that include a range of useful in-game items.
“It’s an awesome time for Perks because we’re excited to reveal that Ultimate members will be locked in to get monthly Halo Infinite Multiplayer bonuses, starting with the first bundle on December 8,” reads the post. Upon release, subscribers to the service will be able to get their hands on an exclusive ‘Pass Tense’ MA40 Assault Rifle coating.
In addition, the bundle will also include four 2XP boosts and four Challenge Swaps – both of which should help to offer players some relief when leveling up at a time where community pressure is mounting over the current state of the game’s slow progression system.
Alongside updating fans on the monthly Halo Infinite bonuses available for Game Pass subscribers, the post also included information on a range of other titles coming to Game Pass this month. As well as gaining access to Halo Infinite’s full release one day one, those signed up to the service will see a range of games including Stardew Valley and Aliens: Fireteam Elite added to the roster across December.
While currently still a beta, reports have surfaced recently from users frustrated about the number of cheaters entering Halo Infinite. In a recent response, 343 community manager John Junyszek addressed players’ concerns stating that the developer is “prepared and committed to releasing consistent improvements to [the] game’s systems” while also “taking action” against those found to be breaking the rules.
