Halo: The Master Chief Collection Gets the Xbox Series X|S Treatment

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is back for the Xbox Series X|S, and Microsoft has plenty of enhancements in store.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to Xbox Series X|S on November 17 with a treasure trove of updates, Microsoft announced. The Master Chief Collection enhancements for Xbox Series X|S will be free for current Master Chief Collection owners and those with Xbox Game Pass.

The collection is "fully optimized" for Xbox's next-gen consoles. Given what we know about how the new Xbox systems will improve older games, that means players can expect faster loading times, crisper graphics, and generally improved performance.

They can also expect frame rates of 120 FPS in both the campaign mode and multiplayer modes, with splitscreen improvements for the latter. On Xbox Series X, Master Chief Collection will support resolutions up to 4K.

Halo Infinite was planned as an Xbox Series X|S launch title and featured in Microsoft's next-gen gameplay reveal. However, it suffered a substantial delay earlier in the year and now has an undetermined release date. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Halo news as it develops.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
