As most people know that the Halo: The Master Chief Collection launch was not the best for online experience with online play.
With the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta that’s set to run from 29th December through 18th January. As of now that most of the online issues are being resolved, 343 Industries is talking compensation, as well as some additional content to go along with the four numbered Halo campaigns and their multiplayers.
According to post on Halo Waypoint over the wekend, those that have played (or at least attempted to play) Halo: The Master Chief Collection online since its launch will receive one month of Xbox Live Gold, also an exclusive in game nameplate, and an exclusive in-game avatar.
Also these players will receive the Halo 3: ODST campaign free of charge, the playable collection beyond Master Chief’s story, and upgraded to 1080p resolution, running at 60fps, as soon as 343 finishes remastering it for the compilation.
A future update will also add the “Relic” map for Halo 2: Anniversary at no extra charge.
Only those that played Halo: The Master Chief Collection between launch and 19t December are eligible for these compensation bonuses, meaning anyone that picks up the game for the first time after reading this are out of luck. 343 does plan to reveal pricing details for the Halo 3: ODST campaign at a later date.
The studio also notes that this will be the campaign only and will not include the Firefight game mode.
343 will offer an update this week that further fixes multiplayer issues, while also adding the Halo 4 co-op ‘Spartan Ops’ missions.
