Updated August 27, 2018: The Halo: Master Chief Collection patch is rolling out right now before its Xbox Game Pass debut. The file is roughly 74 GB on Xbox One X and much less on Xbox One.
Usually, Microsoft announces new Xbox Game Pass titles well before they're scheduled to join the service. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case this time, and it left many Xbox One owners speculating. A few days ago, Injustice 2 offered an Xbox Game Pass discount, but it wasn't available for free to subscribers. Luckily, the company began revealing next month's entries today.
At Gamescom 2018, Microsoft announced that Halo: The Master Chief Collection was coming to the service on September 1, 2018. Injustice 2 wasn't mentioned, so it's unclear if it's joining the service. However, given the discounts available for its DLC through Xbox Game Pass, it's highly likely that it'll go free with the subscription next month.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is also getting enhanced for Xbox One X on September 1. All four games will feature improved matchmaking and run at 4K 60 FPS on Microsoft's new console. The collection was quite a big deal when it came out in 2014. For the first time ever, the Master Chief's entire story was available on one console. The game features a remastered Halo 2: Anniversary, along with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4.
Be sure to check out Xbox Game Pass if you want a Netflix-style subscription for games. Unlike competing products, the titles download to your system so there's no streaming involved. Consumers don't have to worry about image quality of lag.
