You Can Get Extra Picky With This Upcoming Halo: The Master Chief Collection Update

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Is Getting a New Update!

Don’t care for the multiplayer or singleplayer components of certain Halo games in Halo: The Master Chief Collection? Well we’ve got some good news: there’s an upcoming update being made that’ll allow players to choose which parts of those remade games to install on their Xbox One!


Brian Jarrard, the Community Director at Halo developer 343 Industries, tweeted an image that showed a menu that looked like it would allow players to choose between installing the multiplayer mode or the singleplayer mode in the five bundled games that are in the remake collection.

“You can choose between the components of the game that are important to you,” part of the feature’s description read.

Also, don’t worry about not being able to play a game-specific multiplayer mode if you don’t have a certain game installed: “Playlist setup is being changed so it’ll be per-game, vs. the cross-game options we have now,” Jarrard explained. “If you don’t have the correct content to play Halo 3, it’ll let you know and prompt you to install it / you won’t be able to join matchmaking for H3.”

There are five games that were remade for the collection: Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4.

Some more news: There’s a new Halo co-op arcade game coming out! You can watch the reveal trailer here.
