Halo 5 releases new REQ pack to fund coronavirus relief efforts

Halo 5 is offering a replacement REQ pack and an opportunity to assist in contributing to the fight against coronavirus.

The ‘Relief and Recovery’ REQ may be a $10 purchase, which will include five permanent REQs from the ultra-rare or better rarity, plus ten rare or better boost cards. From now until April 30, Microsoft is donating all proceeds from ‘Relief and Recovery’ pack purchases to GlobalGiving’s Coronavirus Relief Fund. The official pack description reads, “You’ve got Spartans on the bottom, and we’re not going anywhere … When fellow friends, fans, and family are in need, the Halo community is usually able to lend support.”

According to GlobalGiving, the Coronavirus Relief Fund “will help stop the virus’s spread and provides communities on the front lines of the crisis the resources they have to act quickly and protect the foremost vulnerable.” The donations have already helped:

1)Send doctors, nurses, and other battlefront responders to communities in need
2)Get masks, ventilators, and other lifesaving medical supplies to hospitals and clinics
3)Deliver essential items to struggling families and older individuals in quarantined cities and refugee camps
4)Feed children that believe school meals as their only source of nutrition
Support hygiene awareness efforts.

Amid a worldwide pandemic, it’s genuinely heartwarming to ascertain how the gaming community has stepped up to the virtual plate to assist support relief efforts. Halo 5’s REQ pack is simply one among some ways developers and gamers alike have gotten involved, and I’d expect there to be more innovative programs within the future.
