This program gives Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers unique in-game bonuses and perks, incentivizing members to stay subscribed.
The blog post notes specifically mentions "monthly multiplayer bonuses," suggesting that subscribers will be able to unlock exclusive cosmetics for their Halo Infinite multiplayer Spartan. These may include armor coatings, weapon coatings and charms, or other types of customization items. Players may also get access to extra consumables like XP Boosts and Challenge Swaps as well.

Works for me.
I assume this will be part of the perks in Game Pass? I'm fine with that, hell, perks have gotten me to try a few random free to play games just because it threw me a bone to start with.
