If you are a Halo fan and still don’t have a Xbox One, this bundle is for you. Microsoft has announced a Xbox One Halo: The Master Chief Collection Bundle. It will release on March 11 and will cost $350.
You’ll get the standard Xbox One console (no Kinect) and a digital download code for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. I hope you have good internet. Halo: The Master Chief Collection and patches clock in at more than 60 GB. And, I hope you don’t have an internet cap.
Been living under a rock for the past six months? Halo: The Master Chief Collection includes Halo: CE, Halo 2, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 3 and Halo 4. All campaign missions and multiplayer maps are included. Plus, you can watch Ridley Scott’s Halo: Nightfall.
Microsoft and 343 Industries recently released another patch that addresses many of the issues surrounding The Master Chief Collection. Some issues still remain, but getting into multiplayer matches is a lot easier.
Some may think the timing is a bit unusual. Most game bundles come when the game is initially released, not months after. It looks like Microsoft wanted to wait until the game was mostly fixed before giving it the bundle treatment. I can’t say I blame them.
If you do end up picking up this bundle, check out Ori and the Blind Forest. It’s one of the most beautiful games I’ve ever played. Look for reviews to start popping up tonight. I will probably be posting mine tomorrow.
