Launch Trailer For Halo: The Master Chief Collection Takes The Fight To The Covenant All Over Again


As we approach the hectic holiday season, one Xbox exclusive that is standing head and shoulders above the rest for some fans is Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Combining all of the major releases in the seminal first-person franchise — namely Halo and Halo 2: Anniversary Edition, Halo 3 and Halo 4 — the premium bundle is undoubtedly beginning to catch people’s eyes.

Now, with less than a week to go until release, Microsoft and 343 Industries have unveiled the launch trailer for the collection all the while confirming that the game’s mandatory day one update — which is available to download now ahead of time — has shed 5GB, bringing the massive patch down to a more reasonable 15GB.


According to the studio, the day-one update will add some in-game content and multiplayer features, ensuring that, when you eventually do boot up the collection for the very first time, it will be as complete and fully-featured as possible.

One of the most enticing features of Halo: The Master Chief Collection is the fact that it contains guaranteed access to the upcoming beta for the next chapter in 343’s shooter, Halo 5: Guardians, due to kick off in late December.

Xbox One owners who have pre-ordered can currently pre-load Halo: The Master Chief Collection to ensure they’re ready to play from the get-go when the game releases next Tuesday, November 11th.
