What you need to know

- New Xbox console pins and several other items recently arrived in the store as well.
To celebrate the spookiest time of the year, the Xbox Gear Shop has Halloween-themed Halo merchandise. The store has t-shirts, mugs, bags, and prints featuring Master Chief and the text "Happy Halo-ween." The website also has falling leaves to get you into the autumn mood (which you can disable to make shopping easier).
While Halloween is only a big deal in some communities on Earth, Microsoft claims that Halo-ween is a galactic holiday:
Halloween is a regional holiday celebrated on just parts of Earth. Halo-ween, on the other hand, is celebrated throughout the galaxy and we have truly official merchandise for the fictional occasion.
We're not sure how Master Chief would celebrate Halo-ween. Perhaps he scares trick-or-treaters by telling them about game delays and how Halo Infinite won't have a co-op campaign or Forge at launch.
If you like Master Chief but prefer something less spooky, Microsoft just launched a Halo Infinite Chief Helmet Profile t-shirt.
The Xbox Gear Shop also gained new console pins, new Gears of War merch, and several other new items. It also has new hats, hoodies, and other pieces of gear to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Xbox. It's updated rather often, so it's worth checking in every once in a while if you're on the hunt for new Xbox gear.
