Halo Infinite multiplayer was released early and it came with Season 1. As it was released earlier than expected, you might be worried that there will be less time to get work on unlocking the contents of the battle pass. So, where does Season 1 of Halo Infinite end?
In the past, the developer of Halo Infinite called 343 Industries said that the seasons will last around three months. As the game was released on December 8, 2021, it means the Season 1 of the game would end around March. However, the first season is apparently going to be longer than it is supposed to. It will end in May 2022, the time when the Season 2 of the game will also start.
After realizing the multiplayer on November 15, 2021, the official Twitter account of Halo Infinite @Halo shared a total of two tweets. Here are these two tweets that they shared:
Season 1: Heroes of Reach officially begins today. All of your Battle Pass progression, Spartan customization, and shop purchases will carry over from the beta to the full release of #HaloInfinite.
Season 1 will last until May 2022. Along the way #HaloInfinite will have multiple in-game events with their own rewards and activities! The first is Fracture: Tenrai, featuring a limited time Event Pass, playlist, and Samurai-themed rewards starting next week.
When asked about the extension of the Season 1, the Head of Creative for Halo Infinite named Joseph Staten said that they made the decision to extend Season 1 to give themselves more time to ensure Season 2 meets their high quality bar and so they can finish development for Season 2 in a healthy and sustainable way for their team.
It is worth noting that the content meant to come with Season 1 of Halo Infinite will not be stretched out over a more extended period. For those who are wondering about the additional content, special events, and unlockable exclusives, they will be added instead. For instance, there is a free collection of the 20th anniversary themed cosmetics.
Since the Season 1 of Halo Infinite is set to end in May 2022, you still have plenty of time to unlock all the contents of the battle pass. If you are really behind and have not downloaded the Halo Infinite multiplayer yet, there is still a chance for you to do it. How do you download it?
Before anything, make sure that your device has around 26 GB of space so that it can install the game. After making sure about it, it is time for you to follow one of these following methods:
