You may or may not know that Halo 5: Guardians features microtransactions. And 343 Industries has published a new blog post that details pricing for Halo 5: Guardians microtransactions and talks about how the system works.
Players will be able to purchase three core Requisition Packs from the REQ Store, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Here is the rundown of what they do.
The first one includes Common, single use REQs but is likely to unlock a new permanent REQ if all of them haven’t already been unlocked.
The Silver Pack includes Common to Rare REQs with an added value of two new permanent REQs if all of them haven’t already been unlocked. With Gold packs players get a lot of REQs that range from Uncommon to Legendary with guaranteed two new permanent REQs if all have not been unlocked.
So you have your choice of those three packs. Pricing is set to make sure that players can afford at least one REQ Pack “every other game played,”. Buying the packs with in-game currency will require 1250RP, 5000RP and 10000RP for Bronze, Silver and Gold. Of course if you want to pay real money for these packs, you will be able to purchase the Silver and Gold packs for $1.99 and $2.99 which isn’t bad at all. Players will get a starting REQ bundle which includes 54 REQ cards and 7500 REQ Points or RPs when the game is first launched. Halo 5: Guardians is launching for the Xbox One on October 27th.
