Ahead of the game's debut on Xbox Game Pass on September 1, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is getting a sizable update encompassing several months of work improving the game. Also included is the long awaited Xbox One X enhancements for the Halo collection that includes both 4K assets and HDR support.



With an already large install size of around 100GB the new version also includes intelligent delivery allowing players to customise and choose which components to install, including:
  • Halo: Combat Evolved – Campaign + Multiplayer
  • Halo 2: Campaign + Multiplayer (includes Halo 2: Anniversary MP (w/ Forge) & Halo 2 Classic MP)
  • Halo 3: Campaign + Multiplayer (includes Forge)
  • Halo 4: Campaign + Multiplayer (includes Spartan Ops + Forge)

The update isn't all about 4K either as it introduces significant updates to matchmaking with new dedicated servers - a first for what is essentially a four year-old game.
The Xbox platform and online services have evolved and grown in many ways since MCC was first released in 2014. With this patch, the foundation of MCC is getting modernized and updated to take advantage of the latest and greatest Xbox matchmaking and networking features and functionality. The result for players is an online experience that’s significantly more stable across both Multiplayer and Campaign co-op offerings.

MCC also now utilizes dedicated servers housed in Microsoft global datacenters for all Matchmaking game sessions to provide further stability, reliability, and consistency. Within the game you’ll now see what your average ping time is to each of the data centers.
