Battle Passes are a trend in multiplayer games and with good reason: they allow you to reward players, generate income and keep the community hooked.Unfortunately, not everything is honey on flakes, since they can lead to players consuming video games in an unhealthy way. At 343 Industries they are aware of this and that is why they looked for the Battle Pass of Halo Infinite Be revolutionary by offering a perspective that puts the player first.
What do we mean? Recently IGN had a chat with 343 Industries about the Battle Pass of Halo Infinite. In it, the study assured that its intention is that this reward and monetization model avoid motivating consumption habits that may be unhealthy in the players.

They will do this by making no Battle Pass of Halo Infinite expire. In this way, you will never feel pressured to complete it so that the money you pay for it is completely paid for. With this they hope that the players return to complete the Battle Pass of Halo Infinite because they are excited to do it and not just because of commitment.
“We wanted to be able to say, ‘Look, you put $ 10 in it, you keep that $ 10,” said Jerry Hook, chief designer of Halo Infinite.
This also means that there is the possibility that you own more than one Battle Pass at the same time. What will happen in that case? You can choose which Battle Pass you want to receive the experience you get in multiplayer games. The good thing is that you can choose which is your active Battle Pass at any time.
Another point that stands out is that 343 Industries is that every quarter of the Battle Passes of Halo Infinite will reward you with a legendary cosmetic. So each pass will have several great prizes and you won’t have to wait that long to unlock its most interesting items.
There will be cosmetics outside of the Battle Pass of Halo Infinite
343 Industries knows that there are people who are simply not interested in purchasing a Battle Pass. This is why there will be other ways you will reward players, does this mean there will be loot boxes? No.
What happens is that 343 Industries promised that when playing the campaign of Halo Infinite players will receive cosmetic items. They will also be able to complete weekly challenges to receive a prize called a capstone.

There will still be events that will have free passes with challenges to complete. These special passes will be for a limited time and that is why they will not charge for these rewards. Of course, the events will last 2 weeks and are designed so that you can unlock everything without having to dedicate your life to the game.
