Halo: The Master Chief Collection is receiving a massive update today complete with Xbox One X enhancements, improved matchmaking, and more. This is what the team at 343 has been building towards for a while thanks to help from community feedback, and it’s ready to go live ahead of the game’s Xbox Game Pass release on September 1.
“If you own an Xbox One X and a compatible TV you’re in for a real treat – MCC has received visual enhancements to deliver the entire Master Chief saga up to 4K UHD and HDR. And of course, each of the titles in MCC already run at 60FPS delivering what truly is the definitive way to experience the classic Halo collection.
A new HDR and SDR video settings option has been added to the game to provide fine-tuning and calibration options to ensure MCC looks as good as possible across a variety of different hardware setups and personal preferences.”
Aside from that, multiplayer should now be stable! MCC now uses dedicated servers housed in Microsoft global datacenters for all Matchmaking game sessions, according to the announcement.
For anyone who doesn’t want to download the 100+ GB the game requires, you will be able to selectively choose what you want to download thanks to Intelligent Delivery. Don’t want to play a certain game in the series? You can download the rest and leave that one out. It’s important to note that “by default, MCC will attempt to install the entire ~70GB package. However, once the game displays ‘Ready to Play’, you can launch the game and access the Intelligent Delivery settings to customization your installation specifics.”
The update is a whopping ~73GB, so be prepared to wait a while for it to download.
