I can’t believe that what I learned today was true. I had heard of Halo 4 armor skins and such being locked to the profile that purchases them but that made sense sine they are avatar content for the most part. Shockingly, I learned today that map packs are also account locked. This means that:
- I can’t play custom games offline on DLC maps with the account that purchased the DLC.
- My brother can’t play the DLC maps on my xbox unless my account is also logged in online.
- If I ever lose access to my profile, I will have lost all of my purchased DLC content.
I talked with Xbox support for 2 hours and they confirmed all of the above. This is beyond ridiculous and is a money-hungry scheme if I’ve ever heard one. If the goal was to piss off your customers, mission accomplished 343. I’ll put it this way, if Halo 5 DLC is structured the same way, you will have just lost a customer for both the game and the DLC.
