Halo Infinite continues its development in order to arrive during 2021. During the past weekend, 343 Industries has detailed the cosmetic and customization options that the game will have, with a ‘ coatings ‘ system that offers 7 layers of shaders to apply colors, patterns, materials, … In the weapons, vehicles, and characters of the game. After this announcement, and with the presence of players concerned about the presence of microtransactions, the study has responded to them.
Via Twitter, Community Director John Junyszek responded to comments and frequently asked questions following the announcement, starting with the micro-payments in Halo Infinite: “‘ Are the coatings (and therefore the colors)’ only? can they get by buying? ‘ No, that’s not the case. There will be all sorts of customization items (including coatings ) that can be obtained in-game and earned as special rewards. “
” Will there be purchases? Sure. Is that the only way [to obtain them]? Of course not, ” guarantees the representative of 343 Industries. With the change, there are those who have already shown their dissatisfaction in the networks by losing the traditional color system and ask for a hybrid system that combines the new elements of Halo Infinite customization with the old color system.
” We love that idea, but the colors and materials are each designed and created in specific coatings,” says Junyszek, adding, “I look forward to delving into the technology behind them in a future update for the community.” And in this, the head of the community promises a good variety of customization despite the changes: “while leaving the old color system behind has been a difficult decision, it has allowed us to offer more detail and variation in armor colors, materials, patterns, etc. You’re going to look great in Halo Infinite. “
We remind you that Halo Infinite delayed its launch in summer, and will arrive sometime in 2021. Likewise, the study has confirmed that the multiplayer of the game will be free-to-play, and they have made it clear that there will be no loot boxes, despite these micropayments.
