Change List

Updated: Jun 8

Since we are constantly getting new Halo Infinite information, this website will undoubtedly change over time. If you're looking for a complete list of changes since the initial launch of the site, you've come to the right place.


June 8, 2022

News:

  • Added a YouTube Video Feed linked to the Infinite News Network YouTube Channel to the News page.

  • These videos will take the place of our previous News articles in most cases, except when we need to go into greater detail on a particular subject.

  • Legacy News articles are still available on the News page beneath the YouTube video player.

Promotions:

  • Updated the Twitch Drops article to reflect recently repeated Twitch Drops over the past few weekends.

  • Updated the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks article with a new Perk bundle, claimable between now and July 12, 2022.

General:

  • Added video players to all customization views for Weapon and Armor items to show short videos for Armor Effects, Mythic Effect Sets, and Kill Effects.

  • This has necessitated a redesign of the Home page and the individual Pass pages to accommodate the minimum size of the video player element.

  • Note that hidden Armor Effects, Mythic Effect Sets, and Kill Effects are still using images. We are planning to update these to use videos in the near future.

Customization:

  • Added new Shop Listings pages to the Customization section.

  • When first selecting the Customization page from the main menu, click the View Shop Bundles button.

  • The list of Shop Bundles shows both HCS and non-HCS deals, their costs, and for how long they are usually available. As with most content lists on the site, filters can be used to refine this list to show, for example:

  • Only those items currently for sale

  • All items sold previously but not available presently

  • Only HCS items

  • Only Weekly items

  • Only Epic items

  • And more!

  • Shop Bundle pages list all the usual information you would expect, but they also feature a list of each customization item included in the Bundle, with links to said items.

Customization:

  • Each Source listed, such as Promotional, Default, or Capstone Challenge, is a broad category in which items obtained through that source type are included.

  • Checking a Source will include all items obtained through that Source in the list, provided they also match the conditions specified in the other filters.

  • Unchecking a Source will remove all items obtained through that Source unless they are obtained through a different, checked Source.

  • Clicking the Deselect All button will uncheck all Source boxes, causing the list to completely empty.

  • Clicking the Select All button effectively removes Source filtering by including all Sources.

  • All Source changes affect results in real-time.

  • Note that almost all items currently fall into one of three categories: (Pending), Default, or Promotional. The (Pending) items will be reassigned to other Sources after launch once more information is available. Some items may also have more than one Source, particularly in the case of Promotional items.

However, if you have a photo of your receipt showing two cans of Rockstar and the phone number you entered in the digital display at checkout, you can reach out to Circle K on Twitter or through their feedback form, and they will work with you to deliver your Rockstar code. They have been very diligent in responding to eligible participants thus far.

Customization:
