Halo: The Master Chief Collection got off to a rocky start during its initial release but 343 Industries have kept their promise and continued to make it a better game. After a long time they added more matchmaking playlists and rankings that fans were asking for. Now they have detailed some of their plans for the April update.

343 Industries have detailed some of their plans for April updates to Halo: The Master Chief Collection including content updates, playlist updates and the whole #HuntTheTruth promotional campaign for Halo 5: Guardians over at Halo Waypoint. It mentions that the upcoming content update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection is on track to release this month and is currently in final ‘test passes’. The update will include a focus on ranking, and title-specific improvements as well as new systems regarding quitters and players who betray. The full details of the update will go live when a release date is locked down.

Team Doubles is now available as a playlist and includes Halo 2 Classic, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4 game types. They went on to say more regarding playlists in Halo: The Master Chief Collection;

“We will adjust voting options and weighting in a future update to improve the mix of BR-start game types. Last week, I didn’t mention Team Objective, and I do believe some of the strategists and tacticians amongst our ranks began to worry. Fear not, hill holders and flag fumblers: Team Objective is still on the way, and tentatively scheduled for release in the coming weeks. Additionally, we’re looking forward to bringing SWAT back into the mix.”

There you have it, fans can expect SWAT and Team Objective in the coming future. They go on to detail what exactly the entire #HuntTheTruth angle is.

“For those of you who haven’t yet begun following #HUNTtheTRUTH, the story follows the detailed and enigmatic reports from 26th century war journalist and photographer Benjamin Giraud, who you originally met way back in the Halo Graphic Novel story Second Sunrise over New Mombasa. Giraud is on the hunt for the truth behind the Master Chief; who he is, how he became the hero we know, and how things may have changed since the Covenant War ended. Through both never-before revealed visual documentation as well as lore-laden audio episodes, you can join Ben on his journey to discover more about the Chief than ever before. To catch up, head here, and to listen to each week’s episode, you can head to the Halo Channel, Soundcloud (via the aforementioned link), and as of today, the episodes are also available on iTunes. The next episode will be available at 6PM PDT on April 5.”

Finally, fans can expect all sorts of news from 343 and Halo Waypoint as they will begin talking about their plans for Halo: ODST, Relic and future updates.
