Halo Infinite to Reduce Prices of Cosmetics From Tuesday

343 Industries have revealed that they will be "reducing pricing across the board" in Halo Infinite and start bringing individual items out of bundles.

Fans have had a mixed response to Halo Infinite's available cosmetics. While some of the offerings have been fairly interesting and striking, their high price point has seen many players shun them entirely. Recently, fans saw the return of the Anubis Armor Set, a revamped version of the popular Halo 5: Guardians skins. However, the set was only available as part of a bundle sitting at 2,000 Credits, making its real-world price roughly $17.99.

For a cosmetic set to hit almost a third of the price of the campaign, it's no wonder that fans have been a little disgruntled.

Thankfully, it seems that could all be changing in the very near future. 343 Industries' Head of Design, Jerry Hook, took to Twitter recently to announce that the team would be making changes to the way items are packaged and priced.

"We’ve been monitoring the discussions on the Shop, bundles, and pricing closely since launch. Using data and community feedback, we’re going to begin rolling out changes to how we package and price items in Halo Infinite," the post read.

"Starting Tuesday, the Shop experience will vary week-to-week. We are focused on reducing pricing across the board, providing stronger values in our bundles, starting to put individual items outside of bundles, and more."

Exactly how much the pricing will be changed has yet to be revealed. With the changes set to start kicking off from this Tuesday, fans likely won't have long to wait to find out. Many will be hoping for a significant reduction in cost of some of the available cosmetics, making them far more accessible to the game's audience.

Hook ended the thread by thanking fans for their continued feedback: "We will be trying new things throughout the rest of the season so that we can continue to learn and improve for the future. Please keep the feedback coming during this process and I hope to see you all next week for the Cyber Showdown event."
