After a roller-coaster of events this past week, it seems as if Microsoft and 343 have finally settled on today being the date for Halo 3: ODST and the new multiplayer map, Remnant, to become available for the Xbox One. Remnant is available to all owners of Halo: The Master Chief Collection while ODST is only available for the games early adopters.
That early adopter period runs from the launch of the game, November 11, 2014 to when the public apology was issued on December 19, 2014. If you are one of those early adopters, you should have a redemption key in your messages on Xbox Live, that will give you access to the Halo 3: ODST DLC. The code expires one month after being received. If you don't find a message in your messages, hold tight, as one of our writers have yet to receive his code.
The game and map are a gift to those consumers since 343 released a broken multiplayer experience when the game first launched. They have since then fixed most of the issues that plagued the game as well as add a bunch of new modes and new features.
However, there is some bad news. No word has been given yet as to how owners of The Master Chief Collection can obtain the ODST update.
So if you're an early adopter and you've received your code boot up your Xbox One, download the latest MCC title update and enjoy your ODST and the new multiplayer map!
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
