Halo MCC Update Out Now: Patch Notes Address Issues With New Challenge System

Internet Games 2020-08-01 14:16:46

Microsoft has released a new update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection that addresses some issues related to the newly updated challenge system that came to the game with Halo 3's release for PC earlier this month. You may want to try it all out as you wait for Halo Infinite to arrive later this year.

Specifically, the update--which is out now for PC and Xbox One--fixes an issue where challenge progress would not carry across PC and Xbox One. The patch also fixes a problem that showed challenge progress as being non-existent or lagging behind what it should be. You can see the full patch notes below.

Developer 343 Industries also announced that it's changing how you can unlock the Acrophobia skull. Initially, players needed to complete certain objectives in a set amount of time to unlock it, but now all you need to do is simply log in to the game before Halo 3: ODST launches on PC later this year. The same is true to unlock the Alliance nameplate--just log in and it's yours.

Once ODST is released on PC, the nameplate will go away, while the Acrophobia skull will be given to everyone without any action required on their part.

The July 29 patch for MCC carries a maximum file size of around 3.08 GB on Xbox One, 1.07 GB for the Microsoft Store, and only 47.2 MB on Steam.
