Buying All the Halo Infinite Store Bundles Would Set You Back Over $1,000

With the Halo Infinite multiplayer beta being free and all, who can blame Microsoft for wanting to sell us cosmetics? After all, the game is lots of fun and we already got our first event in the form of Fracture: Tenrai. Normally, we don’t mind seeing microtransactions in free-to-play games, but this situation is a bit different. Players did the math and it turns out that buying all the cosmetics bundles for the first season of Halo Infinite would end up costing you a little over $1,000.

Not Exactly Pocket Change

As always, Redditors were the first to uncover the news, with one user taking the time to go through all the various bundles and adding up all their costs. The grand total comes in at exactly $1,035 according to the user. Not only does this contradict 343s previous statements about giving everyone fair customization options but it also explains why there are virtually no cosmetics available for free in the game.

Having said all that, there are a couple of things we need to note here. First off, the info regarding the store bundles in question comes from a leak that surfaced a few days ago. And while the leak does look legit, you never know with these sorts of things.

Also worth mentioning is that the leak didn’t include any details regarding the pricing. The Reddit user who did the math estimated the costs based on the prices of the currently available store bundles. Some of the cosmetics might end up being cheaper or more expensive than the estimate.

But even while taking all of that into account, it’s clear that buying Halo Infinite cosmetics is going to be a costly proposition throughout season one. Fortunately, this is still a free-to-play game. While cosmetics might make you look cooler, they don’t affect the gameplay. Meaning you can easily skip them and just use the handful of freely available cosmetics instead.
