Halo-The-Master-Chief-Collection

Halo: The Master Chief Collection has seen a number of updates since its initial launch back last November, largely due to the number of problems the game has suffered since release. As an apology, 343 Industries revealed earlier this year that early adopters of Halo: The Master Chief Collection would be getting the free ODST campaign and a new multiplayer map for Halo 2: Anniversary. After much waiting, we told you the other day that codes were starting to go around for the ODST campaign and now the entire list of patch updates for Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s May update have been released.

Obviously, the update allowed the addition of the two freebies mentioned above, but that is far from everything that is in this patch. Thanks to Halo Waypoint, we have the full rundown of the latest update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection below:
