343 industries considering microtransactions for Halo: Master Chief Collection ...

Microtransactions are part and parcel of most games nowadays and are expected to be something most individuals will have encountered and even engaged in. Clearly, their inclusion in Halo Infinite has been a successful one for 343 Industries, as the studio is considering adding them to the Halo: Master Chief Collection.

343 (via Eurogamer) reveals the collection of classic Halo games'' microtransactions treatment. We are internally exploring a potential new feature for the future in the form of purchasable Spartan Points, according to a recent blog post. Spartan Points will be introduced, for players who are new to the MCC, or who may not have focused much time on unlocking items during seasonal updates, or who are simply completionists seeking to catch the last outstanding items.

Don''t panic if you continue to unlock items like this in the old-fashioned way, not knowing whether you''re falling behind everyone else. Despite the possibility that purchasable Spartan Points will be introduced in the future, they will not replace the regular Season Points that can be gained by simply accomplishing challenges.

Spartan Points is a useful, useful tool for players who might find the vast scope of content to be difficult to do (or skip) the grind," according to 343. On the one hand, it makes a lot of sense. Not everybody has the ability to dive hours into a single game to unlock a few items, and seeing someone who has an item you''re not working hard to unlock, knowing they''ve just paid for it, may be a bit irritable for others.

It''s pleasing to see that despite 343''s focus largely shifting to Infinite, there is still work and effort being put into the MCC. Even if that work and effort has been made to develop its campaign co-op. Infinite, 343 will continue to work on a beta next month, but footage of a mod that some gamers believe to be leaked gameplay was found online this week.
