Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will receive XP boosts in Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite's multiplayer beta has been going on for about two weeks now and, while reception has been mostly positive, its Battle Pass has come under fire for its slow progression. Developer 343 has already made several changes to the system, including increasing the XP payout for the first six matches in a day, increasing the length of 2XP bonuses, adding daily rewards for playing your first game, and other weekly challenges. However, in a blog post today confirming Halo Infinite's arrival on Game Pass on launch day, Microsoft also announced that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will be receiving monthly bonus packs for Infinite, and the first one includes four extra Double XP tokens, along with four Challenge Swaps and a gun coating.

There was no mention of whether the XP boosts would be a fixture of the monthly perks, but as long as the general playerbase is underwhelmed by the progression in Infinite, locking XP bonuses behind the priciest Game Pass tier will likely prove a controversial choice.

Kinda unfair for those who don't have GPU.. it's an effective incentive for people to join the service i guess?

They are not "locked behind the Game Pass", you can earn them for free in the Battle Pass free mode ( I have earned more EXP boosts than actual armor) or buy them out right. This is a very poor attempt at making something good sound bad. Sony and Microsoft have always given bonuses for people with their subscriptions for multiplayer games. COD, Fortnite, That Tank Game, That Aircraft fighting game, Battlefield, and even those odd console moba games. It is nothing new and nothing bad.

This seems more like a fun bonus for gamepads members rather than a pay 2 win ploy. Still seems a bit suspicious none the less, hope this isn't a sign of things to come...
