Halo: The Master Chief Collection offers freebies to make up for mistakes

After encountering bugs and hiccups at launch, Halo is making it up to loyal gamers with some freebies. For those who have played Halo: The Master Chief Collection since launch through today, December 19, a number of in-app goodies will be given for free along with a 1-month Xbox Live Gold membership.

343 Industries says that if you've been a loyal gamer since launch, you'll get:

  • 1 Month of Xbox Live Gold
  • Exclusive In-Game Nameplate
  • Exclusive In-Game Avatar

Additionally, Halo will also give out:

  • Halo 3: ODST Campaign – Development has just started on the campaign for Halo 3: ODST, which will be available within Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and upgraded to 1080p resolution, running at 60fps. It will be available for free to anyone who has played Halo: The Master Chief Collection since launch (11.11.14) through today (12.19.14).* Thanks to our friends at Bungie for creating the original "Halo 3: ODST" campaign.

  • "Relic" Halo 2: Anniversary Multiplayer Map – Available via a free content update to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, we will reimagine the fan-favorite map "Relic," fully remastered and running at 1080p resolution and 60fps. We chose this map based on its suitability for Slayer and Objective modes and its ability to support teams of varying sizes. And you can trust that Certain Affinity will tune and tweak the map to make it even better than you remember.

343 Industries will rollout a content release update soon that will add 10 episodes of Spartan Ops for Halo 4 as well as fix other lingering issues.
