Halo 3: ODST Now Available for PC with The Master Chief Collection
Halo 3: ODST - Game - Halopedia, the Halo wiki
In its latest Flighting Update , the studio said Halo 4 tests are slated to begin next month, and it should also bring in several highly requested features by the community. Players across Xbox One, Microsoft Store, and Steam will be enrolled in this test, and if the current plans hold together, portions of Halo 4's campaign, Spartan Ops, and multiplayer will arrive in this flight. Updated Halo 4 Spartan customization options, Forge, Theater, and new Challenges will be a part of this session too. Meanwhile, on the Master Chief Collection changes side, the long-time-coming input-based matchmaking and cross-play capabilities are planned for this flight as well, letting PC and Xbox One players join together on the same servers. In a previous update , the studio said the chosen input device will lock in once matchmaking is initiated, with only non-competitive modes like Firefight and Infection allowing both platforms to join together.
After what seems like forever after coming out, Bungie finally admits the sting of regret after excluding a matchmaking service for it's Firefight mode in Halo 3: ODST because there wasn't enough time to put it in snicker, snicker. Bungie Community honcho, Brian Jarrard had this to say on the matter:. I think we would have loved to have done that. We've heard it from the fans, we've heard it from the press.
Obviously, much of the hype was surrounding Halo 3 , with the rest of the hype-pie being shared by the fan clubs of Reach and the Anniversary-enhanced original duo. You would think Halo 3: ODST was unpopular at launch or something, but as par for the course for the Bungie entries, it sold exceedingly well on the Xbox in I feel like this strangely unknown nature of the product was also felt during its testing phases on PC.
