Halo Infinite is Pulling a Death Stranding With Monster Energy Drink Promotion
While Halo Infinite won't be coming out this year, you can start racking up Double XP and cosmetics with Monster Energy this fall.
Originally planned as the Xbox Series X’s biggest launch title, Halo Infinite unfortunately met the same fate as a lot of other upcoming AAA releases by ending up being delayed to 2021. While the game had its share of criticism after fans were underwhelmed by its gameplay reveal last month (and the resulting Craig memes after), there’s still some Halo-related content to look forward to this fall if you happen to be a fan of Monster Energy drinks. *cue Death Stranding music*
Over on Xbox Wire, Microsoft and 343 Industries detailed a promotional campaign with Monster Energy to tie into Halo Infinite. Obviously this promotion seemed in place for Infinite‘s originally intended fall launch, and while the game itself has been delayed sometime into 2021, you can start racking up promo codes and in-game items ahead of its release.
As detailed in the blog post, buying cans or packs of Monster Energy drinks will give players a variety of different bonus items or special skins that can be unlocked once Halo Infinite releases. Players will be able to to grab Double XP boosts per can that they buy, along with a series of Snapchat filters that will turn players into Master Chief. Additionally, the campaign will feature special challenges with the filters that players can complete towards earning exclusive items in Halo Infinite, such as weapon skins, cosmetics, and emblems.
The promotional campaign is running now through December 31, 2020 and players that pick up the in-game codes will have to redeem them on a special website for the Halo x Monster Energy Promotion. You can check out the page here for more information and to redeem the codes. Now the real question — when will we get the Halo Infinite x Death Stranding crossover to tie into the Monster Energy Gaming Universe?
Halo Infinite is currently in development for Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC, and is expected to release sometime in 2021.
