Halo Infinite: a bundle with early access and 4 DLC coming soon?

Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite could have some sort of early access bundle and at least 4 DLCs already planned to arrive after the release, at least based on some strange movements recorded on the Xbox Store and reported by some dataminers who keep an eye on Microsoft digital delivery.

In particular, to report these possible news is the Twitter account Lumia Updates, which regularly takes care of reporting these changes detected in the Microsoft and Xbox Store catalog, usually managing to anticipate the releases with some precision . In this case, however, it is not clear what it can be, also because some titles and products that emerge from these datamining may have to do with different builds or updates that do not precisely concern the launch of products on the market.

The first is a mysterious Early Access Digital Bundle, which from the name would seem to indicate the possibility of accessing Halo Infinite earlier than its release scheduled for December 8, 2021. It is a little used solution by Microsoft, which usually does not implement such strategies, also because every Xbox Game Studios game is expected to be released on day one directly on Xbox Game Pass, as well as Halo Infinite, but has been previously adopted by some titles such as Forza Horizon 4, for example .

There is at least a screenshot regarding this, while for the possible presence of the DLC we only have to rely on a laconic tweet of the account in question, which first reported the fact that Halo Infinite has obtained "three new DLCs in the last few hours", later corrected with an update reporting only "4", indicating that that number of alleged DLCs have been detected.

However, let's take it all as mere rumors to check, because it could be something else. We recently saw the campaign trailer that unveiled Halo Infinite's single player (with co-op mode coming after launch) and new campaign images and renders of in-game enemies.

Halo Infinite could be getting an early access release

Details of a Halo Infinite 'Early Access Bundle' have leaked online.

Though there's been no official word that Halo's upcoming installment will release in early access, earlier today a curious Twitter user shared a screenshot of what they purport is an 'Early Access Digital Bundle' associated with Halo Infinite on the Microsoft store.

Interestingly enough – or not, as the case may be – there are no other details such as price or release date available, but if authentic, it suggests that not everyone will have to wait until December 8 to play Master Chief's next adventure.

That's not all they uncovered, either. The same person also discovered what they think is a reference to four unannounced 'DLCs', although – once again – Microsoft stopped short of the details, so we don't yet know exactly what they entail, or if they'll come at a cost (thanks, GamesRadar+).

Although it was originally meant to launch with the Xbox Series X in late 2020, Halo Infinite's release date is now December 8, 2021, and will include both the game's campaign and multiplayer modes. The good news for people unable to secure a next-gen Xbox system is that the first-person shooter will be a cross-generation title, so Xbox One owners will also be able to play from release day. 

There’s no doubt that Halo Infinite’s delay took the shine off Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S console launch, but it appears that the delay might well have some 343 Industries’ game the world of good. The game’s multiplayer – which is free-to-play for the first time in the series’ history – has been extremely well-received, even if questions still remain about Halo Infinite’s campaign mode.

And don't forget, Halo Infinite will be available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers for free on day one.
