Halo Infinite multiplayer is already available and free-to-play right now, with an optional Halo Infinite Battle Pass for anyone that wants to pay for some extra rewards. That's not the only way to unlock cosmetics, challenge swaps and extra XP however, as Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers also get unique monthly bundles.
The first of the these bundles is set to arrive on Dec. 8, 2021, coinciding with the launch of Halo Infinite's campaign. Anyone subscribed to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will get the "Pass Tense bundle." As you can see in the image below, this bundle includes the 'Pass Tense' MA40 Assault Rifle coating, four 2XP Boosts, and four Challenge Swaps.

It seems like they could have at least given the first season Battle Pass to those that bought the game. $60 for just a campagin seems kind of steep.
Actually, that seems like a really good idea and would sit well with the players.
I was hoping for it to be included with Game Pass Ultimate, but that's probably too much to ask. I feel like for those that actually purchased it deserve it. I knew it wouldn't be just a perk.
