Halo Infinite Season 1 battle pass: Release date, cost, rewards, and more

We are just weeks away from the release of Halo Infinite, scheduled to launch this upcoming 8th December after a massive delay, with fans increasingly excited as 343 Industries seems to have turned their faith around.

With multiple PvP flights and a campaign showcase impressing both veterans and new fans alike, the devs seemed to have made sure to take as much advantage as possible from the lengthy one year delay.

Now, in a continued effort to excite fans, 343 Industries has revealed the first official details of the game's first battle pass, titled Heroes of Reach.

Let's take a look at everything you need to know.

Halo Infinite Season 1 battle pass - Release date

While we don't have an exact confirmed date, we can make an educated guess regarding the release date of the Heroes of Reach battle pass, and that, of course, is 8th December, as soon as Halo Infinite is released.

When we get official confirmation, we'll update the article accordingly.

Halo Infinite Season 1 battle pass - Cost

Similarly to the release date, we don't have exact confirmation, but enough to assume it will follow similar practices from other popular battle passes like Fortnite, Warzone, or Apex Legends, pricing it at $10 or equivalent depending on your region.

Lead Progression Designer Chris Blohm inferred as much in an interview with IGN. "We wanted to be able to say, 'Hey, look, when you put ten bucks in, you keep that ten bucks.'"

Halo Infinite Season 1 battle pass - Rewards

Explained in an interview with IGN, each battle pass will have a theme from which all customisation options will sprawl from. 

For its first season, Halo Infinite will feature plenty of Reach throwbacks, with armour core being necessary to equip new pieces.

Armour cores will let players use a specific set of customisable parts; the default one all players will get is the Mk. VII core. In order to utilise Reach cosmetics, users need to equip the Mk. V core after they acquire it from the battle pass.

If you're a Halo: Reach fan, you'll be happy to hear the battle pass will include all necessary parts to look like legendary Spartans such as Emile, Kat, or Jorge.

On top of armour pieces, an assortment of visual upgrades can be found, including visors, death effects, and more. One thing we won't be seeing in the Halo Infinite battle pass, at least in the near future, are emotes, as the devs want to maintain a sense of seriousness by not letting Spartans do the floss, for instance. 

A thing worth mentioning is that battle passes in Halo Infinite do not have an expiration date, meaning players can progress at their own pace without the fear of missing out on some rewards.

In case a new battle pass overlaps, you can choose which one to progress further at any point.
