The selection of multiplayer playlists that will be available in Halo: The Master Chief Collection's multiplayer at launch have been revealed, and it looks like you won't always have control over which Halo game you play when using matchmaking.
Many of the playlists will be familiar to Halo multiplayer veterans--Big Team Battle, Team Slayer--but with a catch: a number of them encompass multiple games included in MCC (Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4). If you were wondering how 343 Industries would prevent playlists from ending up empty, we now have the answer.
Sadly, there is no dedicated Grifball or Rocket Race playlist--at least yet, as 343 will undoubtedly be rotating new ones in over time.
The full set of launch day playlists follow below (via IGN):
- Halo: Combat Evolved -- 4v4 mix of Team Slayer and objective modes
- Halo 2 Classic -- 4v4 mix of Team Slayer and objective modes
- Halo 2: Anniversary Rumble -- 8-player free-for-all matches
- Team Halo 2: Anniversary -- 4v4 mix of Team Slayer and objective modes
- Team Halo 2: Anniversary Social -- 5v5 unranked mix of Team Slayer and objective modes
- Halo 3 -- 4v4 mix of Team Slayer and objective modes
- Halo 4 -- 5v5 mix of Team Slayer and objective modes
- Team Slayer -- 4v4 Team Slayer matches across all five games
- Big Team Battle -- 8v8 matches across all five games
- Team Hardcore -- 4v4 "tournament-approved" modes in Halo 2 and 3
- Halo eSports -- 4v4 official eSports playlist
- SWAT -- 4v4 SWAT game modes in Halo 2, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4
The Master Chief Collection launches on November 11 for Xbox One.
