If you're looking for a way to play tons of classic Halo games and have had your eye on Halo: The Master Chief Collection (MCC), there has never been a better time than right now to pick the game up. You can get Halo: MCC on sale for half off at $20, which is an absolute steal. In fact, it's the lowest price drop that the game has ever had, so if you don't have it already you should definitely pick it up now. The deal is available on both Xbox and PC.

The best thing about the MCC is that it bundles all of the pre-Xbox One era Halo shooter games together for a killer price, which means that you get a massive amount of bang for your buck. Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4 are all available to play through the collection, complete with all of their campaigns, multiplayer playlists, and gamemodes.

The fun doesn't stop there, though. 343 Industries has given all of these games various enhancements and improvements that take advantage of more powerful pieces of hardware such as modern PCs and Xbox Series X. These include patches for 4K resolution, up to 120 FPS, field-of-view (FOV) sliders, viewmodel adjustments, and more.

Also, the developers are even adding in brand new pieces of content to these games that wasn't present in the original. These include new armor sets, weapon and vehicle skins, visor colors, animated visors, and more. This content is all free for players to obtain, and can be earned by leveling up each in-game season's Season Pass. The latest season is Season 6, which just launched and features tons of new Halo 3 cosmetics.

Overall, the MCC is fantastic, and it's definitely one of the best Xbox One shooters available. It's also an awesome game to play while waiting for Halo Infinite, which releases in Fall 2021.
