Microsoft has confirmed on Twitter that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will receive a free update for Xbox Series X/S next month. This won’t be available with the launch of both consoles though. Instead, it’s out on November 17th, a week after launch.
Both platforms will benefit from 120 FPS support in the campaign and multiplayer components. Split-screen will also see some improvements but 4K resolution support is reserved for the Xbox Series X version. Considering the sheer range of Halo titles in the collection, it should be interesting to see how they all fare at a higher resolution and frame rate.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is part of Xbox Game Pass, allowing Xbox Series X/S players to jump in without any issues. It’s currently available for Xbox One and PC as well with Halo 3: ODST and Firefight recently being added. Stay tuned for more details on the update in the coming weeks.
It's time to dust off the ol' Needler.
