Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the complete collection of all previous generation mainline Halo titles, is receiving a new next generation upgrade on November 17th.
Announced on Xbox’s Official Twitter account, the fan-favorite all-in-one Halo package will soon be able to take advantage of the Microsoft’s new line of next generation systems, the Xbox Series X & S, including support for up to 120 FPS in campaign & multiplayer, split-screen improvements, and up to native 4K resolution on the Series X. The tweet also emphasized that the upgrade will be free to all existing owners of the collection, as well as Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
The update comes just a week after the launch of Microsoft’s two new next generation home console, the Xbox Series X & S, which promise to have “thousands” of games available at launch via the hardware manufacturer’s commitment to backwards compatibility. While the update won’t be available at the console’s launch, fans can still access the Master Chief Collection via backwards compatibility on both the Series X & S at launch.
