343 Industries has brought back the Samurai-themed Fracture: Tenrai event to Halo Infinite‘s multiplayer, with a few tweaks.
This time the limited-time event is running from now until January 11, and the studio has made changes to improve progression following negative feedback from players last time around. First off, players will be able to progress ten tiers of their event pass rather than seven. As explained via the Halo Waypoint blog, you’ll still have to play multiple weeks to unlock everything. But the team hope the extra drops will “help expedite progression for highly engaged players.”
In addition, players will find challenges given a tune-up for this second go around. A common criticism was that sometimes players would have to clear many non-event challenges before they’d even see one tied to an event. This has now been changed, and players should be always making progress on “at least one” Event Challenge.
The team has also made changes to the contents of the Event Pass. Many players felt it contained too many XP Grants and Challenge Swaps as opposed to new cosmetics. Accordingly, 343 has gone in and replaced all of them after Tier 10 with more cosmetic items, meaning there’s an extra 11 free items for players to nab.
