Halo Master Chief Collection Gets 41.5GB Update - Changelog Released

From a humble seed of a game, Halo The Master Chief Collection, or MCC for short, has bloomed into a glorious tree. Spanning multiple games, multiple online modes and more recently, multiple systems. Xbox games and PC gamers are once again the true (shared) home of the Halo franchise.

Today saw the release of a pretty hefty update too. Clocking in at 41.5GB, it brings a wide range of tweaks and improvements. You’ll be seeing an all-new spartan customization 3D model viewer for Halo 2 (and anniversary). Theater mode now includes Halo 2 and Reach, and there are new Weekly Campaign Challenges too.

Of course, having so many games crammed into one “game” package means lots of fixes too. Gun issues, frame rate issues, that kind of thing. They’ve also solved the issue with some corrupted textures in Halo 2, as well as some dynamic lighting issues.
