Halo Infinite turned out to be one of the best premieres at the end of last year, but not all elements of the game aroused enthusiasm among players. Fans complain about the high prices in the virtual store. It turns out that in this respect, the game will soon change for the better.
One of the developers from 343 Industries, Jerry Hook, informed that on January 18, which is next Tuesday, price reductions will be implemented in the in-game store. The offers will change every week based on game data and community feedback.
So the prices will be modified regularly, but overall it will be much cheaper. In addition, some items that were only available in sets so far will be able to be bought on their own. For now, it is not known whether those who purchased items before these changes will receive any compensation.
The free multiplayer mode of Halo Infinite launched in November 2021 (as part of the open beta), and the paid story campaign was released in December. The game was released for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. It is also available on Game Pass, both on PC and consoles.
It is also worth mentioning that yesterday marked the end of the Xbox 360 era for the Halo series. After many years, servers were switched off for all versions of the games released for this console, namely Halo: Reach, Halo 4, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Spartan Assault, and Halo Wars. Multiplayer of these productions still works on other platforms, as long as the game is available on them natively, and not as part of backward compatibility.

How to play Halo 5: Guardians on PC with mouse and keyboard
All installments in the Halo series are available on the xCloud streaming service as part of the most expensive Game Pass subscription. This is a very useful option for people with older computers. Moreover, it is the only way to play Halo 5: Guardians on PC because the fifth part of the series was not available for PC, while the rest can be purchased as part of Halo: Master Chief Collection.
The problem is that only console versions of the games are available in xCloud and thus only work on pads. Fortunately, there is a way around this. To play them with a mouse and keyboard, you will need the project Keyboard & Mouse for Cloud which is available in versions for Chrome and Edge browsers. It works surprisingly well, as long as you turn off the "increase pointer precision" mouse option in Windows system settings before playing.
