We’re not getting Halo Infinite until sometime next year, but old games in the iconic first-person shooter franchise are getting a boost on Xbox Series X and S. Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be optimized for the new consoles on Nov. 17, Microsoft revealed Tuesday.
The update will let the collection run at 120 frames per second in campaign and multiplayer, and the resolution for the games will be boosted to as much as 4,000 pixels on the more powerful Series X. It’ll also add cross-gen play, so you’ll be able to play with friends who aren’t upgrading to Microsoft’s new consoles.
“All these upgrades are free to anyone who owns the game or is in tweeted.!” Xbox marketing boss Aaron Greenberg
The Master Chief Collection includes Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary; Halo 2: Anniversary; Halo 3; Halo 3: ODST; Halo: Reach; and Halo 4. The only mainline game it’s missing is Halo 5: Guardians. Series developer 343 Industries implied the title is unlikely to be added.
