11/17, 7:51 p.m. ET UPDATE: 343 Community Manager John Junyszek verified changes to the Halo Infinite Battle Pass progression paradigm, updated in this article.

The developers are reevaluating the battle pass advancement system in Halo Infinite. The game’s multiplayer mode was released ahead of schedule on Xbox and PC earlier this week, and it instantly proved a hit. Fans were ecstatic to get involved, and Halo Infinite’s multiplayer broke records in just a few hours. The game climbed the Steam charts, reaching a peak of 256,619 active players. This number has dropped slightly since then, which is expected as the hoopla dies down, but Infinite has stayed among the top ten most-played titles on the platform.

After the events of Halo 5 and Halo Wars 2, Halo Infinite is the long-awaited latest addition in the series, following the tale of the game’s famous character Master Chief. The game was originally scheduled to release alongside the next Xbox system generation, and however, it was later postponed. However, during the Xbox 20th Anniversary Livestream, it was confirmed that the mode would be available starting November 15. Fans rushed to download the game, ready to return to the familiar arena shooter from years ago. They rapidly noticed, however, that the Halo battle pass advancement appeared to be unlimited. The fact that players may only get experience through completing tasks rather than finishing matches seemed to have irritated them the most.

After receiving negative criticism, Halo community developer Brian Jarrard took to Twitter to assure gamers that the problem was being investigated. He revealed that the development team is presently gathering data from gaming sessions to reevaluate how the Battle Pass advancement mechanism will function in the future. He also mentioned that as the plot progressed, more information on the subject would be released. He concluded by urging community members to submit any complaints or feedback about the game. Following that, 343 Community Manager John Junyszek revealed that the Battle Pass advancement in Halo Infinite would be tweaked to make the game less of a grind.

While the early release of Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode was a pleasant surprise, there are still some difficulties to be resolved. Many gamers were unable to play the game properly on both Xbox and PC at its release. Many people were met with a blue screen error instead of the famous Halo theme song. And, while this problem has been resolved, another may be lurking around the corner. The fact that the game is still referred to as the Multiplayer Beta in many places is possibly the best example of this.

The Halo development team’s unique approach to the progression mechanism is most likely to blame for the poor experience acquisition. It was revealed earlier this year that once acquired. A Halo Battle Pass would not expire when the season it corresponded to end. Instead, gamers will be able to choose which one they want to play. When they aim to achieve a certain reward, this will allow them a lot more freedom and flexibility. Halo Infinite’s multiplayer is still a huge hit despite its early problems, and the campaign will add to that.

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode is currently available on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. On December 8, 2021, the full version of the game will be released.
