In addition to the free Halo 3: ODST, Ross also announced that users who have played Halo: Master Chief Collection from launch until last Friday (19/12/14) will get, via a free update, a remaster “Relic” map from Halo 2 which will be running in 1080p and 60fps.
If that was not enough, they also announced that users will be getting: 1 Month of Xbox Live Gold, Exclusive In-Game Nameplate and an Exclusive In-Game Avatar for free as an apology.
Well done 343 and Microsoft for taking a leaf from Ubisoft’s book and giving their fans a little something for their broken game. However, it should never…never of been released with those problems.
