Go grab that freebie, Spartan!

We all love some nice freebies, otherwise, why would we be here?

The freebie in question is related to Halo Infinite from 343 Industries and it features a skin colour (officially known in-game as ‘Coating’) to make your Spartan look all snazzy.

Released in 2021 and intended to be an Xbox Series X|S console seller, it’s been a bit of a rough time for Halo Infinite and its developer, 343 Industries. Some feel that since 343 had taken over from OG developers, Bungie, the series has lost its spark or ‘Guilty Spark’, am I right? No. Ok, I’ll move on swiftly.

So what is the freebie for Halo Infinite I hear you ask? As shared in a Reddit post, players can claim the ‘Arbiters Guard Armor Coating’ at no cost from the in-game Halo Infinite store. However, it is only available for a limited time. You have until 22 August 2023 to claim the free item before the offer expires.

“In celebration of the release of HALO: OUTCASTS on August 8, which sees the return of Arbiter Thel 'Vadam, all players can acquire the Swords of Sanghelios-themed Arbiter's Guard armour coating for FREE,” reads a tweet from the official Halo account.

Will this free download make you go back to Halo Infinite, assuming you’re one of the 98% of players that have jumped ship? Sadly, it will probably take a lot more to save Xbox’s most iconic franchise. To put things into perspective, even by a developer's own admission, Halo Infinite was set up for failure. It remains to be seen whether 343 Industries can turn things around, but it really is entering make-or-break territory for the developer and the series.

In our review of Halo Infinite, we said: “After a few rocky attempts, this is a fun and much-needed return to form for the franchise. While the campaign feels a little empty, there’s huge potential for things to come in DLC and despite some of the issues with multiplayer, the core gameplay itself is extremely enjoyable.”

Halo Infinite is out now for PC, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. Its multiplayer component is free to play.
