Master Chief Collection gets another patch!

Post  Fatboy Geezer on Thu Nov 27, 2014 9:28 am

Microsoft has released another new patch for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, this time weighing in at 523MB.


The update contains the latest set of fixes from developer 343 Industries, including improvements for the game's beleaguered matchmaking.

While nowhere near as hefty as the game's 15GB day one content update, the patch is still another large download for Halo players.

Also included are fixes for the game's party, lobby and custom games modes, as well as stability and UI updates.

Earlier this week, 343 Industries studio head Bonnie Ross released a statement offering Master Chief Collection players "heartfelt apologies" for the problems faced so far.

"We have not delivered the experience you deserve," Ross wrote. "I personally apologise for this on behalf of us all at 343 Industries. Our team is committed to working around the clock until these issues are resolved."

More patches are on the way.

Read the full release notes below.
