The Halo: Master Chief Collection made its debut on Xbox One in 2014, and since then it's gone through several rounds of content updates, even moving over to a new platform: PC. Today, Microsoft announced the collection would finally be getting one more long-awaited feature: ODST's Firefight mode.
In a trailer shared earlier, Microsoft confirmed that Firefight would be coming to the Master Chief Collection later this summer. Both PC and Xbox One players will get the update, finally bringing this ODST mode to the collection.
Firefight is a special co-op mode in ODST where players team up to fight waves of Covenant. It's similar to other co-op wave-based modes, like Horde mode in Gears of War, but Halo 3: ODST's Firefight has been particularly revered over the years compared to Reach's Firefight mode.
The Master Chief Collection has been steadily adding new content over the years, particularly to the PC port over the last few months. Halo 2 recently made its debut on the PC side, bringing the dorm room splitscreen classic to modern gaming computers. As an aggregate of the best that Halo has to offer, the Master Chief Collection has sat comfortably in our best Xbox games list, and with the addition of Firefight finally making ODST even more complete, that doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon.
This also bodes well for the continued filling out of the PC Master Chief Collection, as several games have yet to make their way to that version including Halo 3: ODST. Between Halo 2 and some ODST Firefight action, this summer is looking like a good time to get back into Halo.
