Microtransactions are highly criticized by a sector of the players, and are generally synonymous with controversy. It seems that 343 Industries wants to avoid generating discontent among the community, so it has already confirmed that the new Halo: The Master Chief Collection store will not include them.
Through a post on Halo Waypoint, Dana Jerpbak, the game’s technical designer stated that The Exchange, the name given to the new store, will allow players to purchase various items using season points, rather than real money.
THIS IS HOW THE EXCHANGE WILL WORK
Halo: The Master Chief Collection , like other multiplayer titles, uses a seasonal model. Each of these with their respective rewards and challenges. Thus, players can earn SP (Season Points) by performing kills, meeting objectives, and so on. In this way, these points can be used to buy different items available at that time.
Now, and as Dana Jerpbak explains, with the implementation of The Exchange to the title it is intended that players can acquire objects belonging to previous seasons. In addition, the new store will give players more freedom to unlock the content they want.
It is explained that The Exchage will have items divided into 2 categories: featured and for a limited time. The first of these will include the theme packages that are generally introduced with the arrival of a new season, and the second will offer items that will rotate over time.
Finally, it was ensured that certain items that were originally unlocked with seasonal challenges will have a higher cost based on the difficulty of the challenge. Additionally, such items may temporarily disappear from the store, forcing players to wait to re-acquire them. This decision was made to avoid “trivializing” the most prestigious rewards.
