Xbox has always tried to find a way to incentivize gamers to play games on their platform whether it was adding achievements with Xbox 360 to having Summer of Arcade to highlight Indies, to adding the Backwards Compatibility Program to Xbox One. With Xbox GamePass, they’ve taken rewards to the next level, allowing players to earn rewards points by completing quests through GamePass that you can spend on Xbox merchandise, accessories, and even gift cards.
Another great thing Xbox GamePass offers is exclusive perks for games like bonus content in Phantasy Star Online New Genesis and cosmetics in Sea of Thieves. That trend continues with Halo Infinite, in which subscribers will offer monthly cosmetics for weapons, armor colors, and bonus XP. The first bundle available for GamePass users is called ‘Pass Tense’ and offers an MA40 Assault Rifle coating, four 2XP Boosts and four Challenge Swaps. It will be available to claim from the Perks section of your GamePass app on Xbox, PC, and Cloud starting on December 8th.
“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! Don’t forget to claim this and more in the Perks gallery on your Xbox console, Xbox App on Windows PCs, and the Xbox Game Pass mobile app.”Xbox GamePass Press Release
Halo Infinite‘s Multiplayer is available now in beta form and the campaign drops on December 8, 2021.
I’m excited to have more customization options for Halo Infinite especially since the Battle Pass is mostly tied to challenges that I don’t really have time for. Are you claiming your perks from GamePass? Let us know what your favorite perks have been in our Discord or Facebook group!
