After a notable absence from this year’s Xbox E3 press conference, many fans began speculating when they would get their first glimpse or tease for the next installment of the franchise. 343 Industries has responded to many questions and speculation posts, informing us that Halo 6 won’t be revealed soon, not at Gamescom, not at Pax, but when 343 Industries is ready. Let me explain why that is a good thing!
Halo 5 now has Platinum REQ Packs, let’s find out if they’re worth buy. Short answer: No.
You’re better off buying 2 Gold REQ packs for the REQ point price of 1 Platinum REQ pack. I feel that 343 Industries needs to re-work the Platinum packs to justify the price. Rewards need to be increased instead of offering fewer rewards with a better chance of higher rarity items.
Update: Platinum Packs have now proved to be worthwhile, that is, if you’ve already completed your REQ collection in Halo 5: Guardians.
If you’re still grinding to complete your unlocks, stick to Gold REQ Packs.
If you’re grinding to reach the max Spartan rank in Halo 5, and you have everything unlocked, then these packs are great as they will grant you a lot of XP boosts that you’ll definitely need.
