New Halo 5 DLC Supports COVID-19 Relief Fund

Halo 5 adds a new $10 REQ pack that you can buy to help support ongoing relief efforts.


Following Call of Duty: Modern Warfare before it, Halo 5: Guardians has added a new premium DLC pack that players can purchase to support the ongoing COVID-19 relief effort.

Microsoft has released the "Relief and Recovery" REQ pack for Halo 5, which includes an assortment of rare items that players can use in the game's multiplayer mode. All proceeds from the $10 USD microtransaction will go directly to the charity Global Giving's Coronavirus Relief Fund.

The DLC pack comes with five customization items that are at least ultra-rare, in addition to 10 rare or better boost cards to help you level up faster in multiplayer. The DLC pack will be available through April 30

You can buy the Relief and Recovery REQ pack through Halo 5 or right here on the Xbox Store. This could end up driving serious money, as Halo 5's REQ microtransaction system has proven to be incredibly lucrative over the years.

As mentioned, Halo 5 is not the first game to launch an in-game campaign to raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts. Modern Warfare's "Defender" microtransaction has returned to help military veterans during this stressful time.
