Latest Update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s expected to arrive in a few days
New Update for the game will be available soon.

343 Industries adventurous creation Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s did not turn out in accordance to the expectations of players who had high hopes for the game thus making it almost impossible to play. Makers have tried compensating for these shortcomings of  the game by providing a free copy of Halo 3: ODST and giving away one month gold extension for Xbox Live.
