This season pass situation? I just don't really get it. Well, I get it, but I don't get it. It seems a little bizarre to me — like pre-ordering DLC! But all the cool kids are doing it, and Halo 4 is no exception. The game hasn't even hit stores yet and Microsoft has just announced a DLC season pass that gives players 15% off all Halo 4 map packs as they're released in December, February and April.
Its official name is the War Games Pass and it's set to go on-sale at 2000 Microsoft Points.
No doubt, it's a commitment. Particularly when you don't know how the community will take to the new game and you don't know how you, as a player, will take to the new game. With Reach, for example, I was done with the game before the final map pack was released. But with Halo 3? I was there till the bitter end. Point being — you just don't know.
But if you're one of those folks that always plays Halo till the absolute death, it might be worth making the investment now.
