Yesterday, 343 Industries studio released the latest Halo: The Master Chief Collection update. This patch not only eliminates the various problems with the project’s work but also adds to the game some new content, about which we’ll tell you right now.
So, the key moment included into the released Halo: The Master Chief Collection update is a cooperative campaign titled Spartan Ops from Halo 4. This mode consists of ten missions. Earlier, it was planned that Spartan Ops will be a part of the collection at launch, but in the middle of October the developers reported about the necessity to implement some technical fixes, so the mode’s release was postponed till December.
Also, the fresh Halo: The Master Chief Collection update increases the stability and improves the performance of the games in the edition as well as fixes several bugs and brings some changes to the Matchmaking system. As for the last one, now the battles start only if all the teams have the even amount of members. In addition, if a player disconnects before the round is ended officially, then it counts as a loss of the whole team.
You can find the detailed patch notes in the project’s official blog.
