Grab the origin of one of gaming's legends for free.
During the Inside Xbox presentation during Gamescom 2018, Microsoft announced that Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to Xbox Game Pass. This Xbox One exclusive includes anniversary editions of Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2, as well as Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4. Although only the campaign for ODST is in the collection, the multiplayer of the other four games are all included.
Xbox also had some announcements in regards to the company's Game Pass program. Until August 31, new members only have to pay $2 for a two month membership. A beta for the Game Pass mobile app is also launching today. The app allows you to install games to your Xbox One remotely and monitor both Game Pass deals and the schedule for when titles are added or removed from the program. Android users can download the app through Google Play while iOS users need to secure a spot through TestFlight. Spots in the iOS beta are limited so act fast if you want in.
We've enjoyed every one of the games included in The Master Chief Collection. In our Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary review, we gave the game an 8/10. In our Halo 2 review, we gave the game a 9.4/10. In our Halo 3 review, we gave the game a 9.5/10. In both our Halo 3: ODST review and Halo 4 review, we awarded 9/10 scores.
The Master Chief Collection comes to Xbox Game Pass on September 1. The collection is also getting Xbox One X enhanced, improved matchmaking, offline LAN support, and a new custom game browser. You'll get these add-ons and patches on September 1 if you just buy the collection as well.
Master Chief's journey continues in Halo 5: Guardians, which is already available via Xbox Game Pass. The sixth mainline Halo title, Halo Infinite, will continue Chief's story, but there are rumors the game will release in two parts.
