Xbox Game Pass getting enhanced Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Every month, Xbox Game Pass gets new titles added to it’s rotating roster of free games. The subscription service is a big push for Microsoft, so it was only a matter of time until the big franchises landed on the service. During Inside Xbox at Gamescom 2018, Microsoft gave up the ghost on a new addition to the service.
Now Halo fans have something to be excited about. Halo: The Master Chief Collection will land on September 1st for Xbox One via the sub-only service. And all versions of the game, including the Xbox Game Pass release, will get a title update that same day. This new update will improve in-game matchmaking, and will finally add LAN support for local multiplayer. All of the games included in the compilation will get support for 4K UHD and HDR coloring on the Xbox One X, so that’s pretty cool too.
Microsoft is currently running a discount on Game Pass until August 31st. Interested parties can subscribe for $2 for the first month, and get a second month at no additional cost. The service, which offers a library of more than 100 full games, regularly costs $9.99 per month.
