The release date for Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s Remastered version of Halo: ODST has been revealed as May 29th thanks to a post on Xbox.com (which has since been removed for unknown reasons).
This brings the total amount of games on The Master Chief Collection to a grand total of 5, yes 5 full games all for $30(currently on sale)/£40. Well worth the money to tell the full tale of Chief and his adventures. That sounds like jolly old fun doesn’t it?
343 Industries, the company at the helm of the new Halo trilogy, announced back in December that the game would be free to download to early adopters of the game from its release date running up to December 19th, 2014 due to it ongoing launch troubles.
Some of the problems reported were poor matchmaking, with some players waiting 3 hours for games to start. Why you’d wait that long I have no clue, but what do I know, when you wanna play Halo you wanna play Halo.
No details on the cost of the download have been released yet, but the download size has been confirmed as 8.1GB. Does this mean the game will only see a limited release as a thank you and apology to early buyers of the game or will it see a full priced release as a DLC for the Halo Master Chief Collection?
The Nerd Stash will be sure to release details as soon as we hear any more on the matter.
Halo: ODST was first released back in September 2009 and was generally well received amassing an 83/100 on Metacritic and follows the story of a lone survivor know as ‘Rookie’ as he tries to find out what happened to his missing team members.
Hopefully they will have the amazing Firefight gametype with the game, which sunk many players in to acquire their achievements.
Do you think you’ll be rewarded a free copy? If not, will you purchase the DLC if available? And does this make up for the shameful launch Halo:MCC had or have you lost faith in 343 completely?
