Halo: The Master Chief Collection is getting some upgrades for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, which are due to launch in November.
As revealed by a tweet from the Xbox page, the MCC will be playable at 120 FPS on the upcoming next-gen consoles for both campaign and multiplayer. This is a step up from the Xbox One’s 60 FPS cap, and also an improvement over the PC version in some ways. As PC Gamer noted, a number of the MCC titles suffered from issues with unlocked framerates on PC, although Halo 3 was fine at 144 FPS.
Aside from that, the MCC will be “fully optimized” on the next-gen consoles, although it’s not clear what that means exactly. For Xbox Series X players, they can also expect 4K support and split-screen improvements. And luckily for those who already have the MCC on current-gen consoles or have an Xbox Game Pass subscription, the upgrade will be free.
The upgraded MCC will arrive on November 17. Halo Infinite, the latest installment in the series, was meant to arrive this year as well, but was pushed from Holiday 2020 to sometime in 2021.
