HALO: THE MASTER CHIEF COLLECTION
First things first, let’s get you up to speed about the latest Halo happenings in MCC. Most notably, Season 5, also known as “Anvil,” launched just two weeks ago and brought along with it our largest drop of NEW amazing cosmetics. Over 80 new pieces of armor, new Seasonal Challenges offering up cosmetics for both Halo: Reach and Halo 3, and so much more with its 100 tiers of unlocks.
To learn more about our first update since bringing the entire collection to PC, be sure to read our Season 5 launch blog here on Waypoint. If you’d rather watch a video outlining the new additions in Season 5, I’d recommend watching our first Seasonal Sitrep video which was made for just for you!
To get a lore lowdown on a selection of the new armor, some of which came from the mythical Halo Online, you can check out the most recent Canon Fodder. And if you’re looking for sweet wallpapers and eye candy, be sure to take a look at our public press kit here on Waypoint as well!
Black History Month
Join us in celebrating Black History Month by hopping into MCC anytime this February and you’ll unlock the Black History nameplate!
Looking for (Halo) love in all the right places? Starting today, if you log in to MCC through Valentine’s Day weekend, you’ll unlock the Put a Ring on It nameplate.
Please note, this nameplate is not automatically granted so it may take a week or two for you to see it. You should expect to see it by February 26.
Next week we are planning to kick off our first flights for MCC in 2021! In last week’s MCC Flighting & Development Update, we talked about some of the features players can expect. If all goes well in Rings 1 and 2, we plan to roll out our next public flight as early as next Thursday, February 18. While all of the contents of the flight are subject to change, some of the features we’re hoping to include are:
- Custom Game Browser: a new way to play with each other in MCC
- Season 6 content
- A new map for Halo 3 from Halo Online
- FOV slider support for all Xbox One consoles
- FOV slider will no longer be locked when Xbox Series X|S devices are set to 120hz
- Double Keybindings
- Mouse & Keyboard support for consoles
- Advanced Audio options
- View Model Customization options
If you want to get in on the action, please make sure all of your Halo Insider information is accurate and current. This includes if you have picked up an Xbox One Series S|X recently or new parts for your PC. Verifying your email address and making sure it's up-to-date is the only way we can contact you when the time comes to send out flighting invites.
Not yet a Halo Insider? No problem! It’s quick and easy to opt-in on aka.ms/HaloInsider. Be sure to opt-in for communications and complete your email verification. And, if you want to participate via PC, please make sure to include a DxDiag hardware snapshot.
