This weeks Master Chief Collection patch!

Post  Fatboy Geezer on Tue Dec 16, 2014 12:43 pm

Microsoft has released another patch for Xbox One exclusive first-person shooter Halo: The Master Chief collection.

This one includes improvements for matchmaking, roster and parties.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection endured a torrid launch, with long matchmaking times preventing many from playing the game online.

This patch is the latest in a stream of updates developer 343 has released as it battles to get its high-profile FPS back on track.

Here are the patch notes, courtesy of Halo Waypoint:

MATCHMAKING

Made improvements to the reliability of Matchmaking parties.
Local split-screen players will now always be on the same team in Halo 2 Matchmaking.
Made an update to allow players to use Voice Chat during loading screens in Matchmaking.
Made an update to ensure that players are not forced into an incorrect party after encountering an issue in Matchmaking.
Resolved an issue where the "Winning Team Won" text was shown in the Carnage Report.
ROSTER

Made fixes to reduce the amount of time it takes to update the Roster:
Players will now be discovered sooner after starting the game.
Changes to the roster will be more immediate to better reflect friend activity.
PARTIES

Made several improvements to party joining and management.
Resolved an issue where players that were in a party could not join another party from the Roster.
Made changes to ensure that parties cannot exceed the maximum party size of a playlist.
Made an update to ensure that Party Leaders can assign a new Party Leader or Kick a player from their party.

I think I may be getting this for Chirstmas, then I believe that plan is to run through the campaigns with Bunny. My need a co-op partner for the legendary run throughs though, my usual halo partner hasn't upgraded to the One yet. By that point multiplayer should have been sorted

Halo 1 & 2 are co-op, but of course 3 & 4 are both 4 player! Very Happy

I never had much luck getting 4 players on 3 & 4 without having serious lag issues. Do you still have to unlock the skulls in MCC? it will be strange playing without birthday party turned on

Nope, they are all there to use straight away, you can still find them, and obviously finding them yields achievements Smile
