343 Industries has added a new multiplayer map to Halo 3, despite the fact the game released over a decade ago.
Halo’s third instalment is something of a relic in 2021. It’s part of Microsoft’s original shooter trilogy, which contributed to the series’ renowned success.
Today, the game lives on as part of the Master Chief Collection, a compilation of remastered Halo games released in 2014.
At this point, even the game’s remaster is getting a little long in the tooth despite some recent updates. Yet, against all odds, the game has somehow managed to receive a new map, here in 2021.
The update comes as part of The Master Chief Collection’s “season 6”, which was announced via the official Halo Twitter account:
“Prepare to go Raven mad. Season 6 of MCC, “Raven” is officially here – and with it, new animated visors, back accessories, skins, Fireteam Raven armor, and more! What are you unlocking first?”
The game’s official site also details some of the features of The Master Chief Collection Season 6:
“With Season 6, we’ve got a heap of new content shipping out, and we can’t wait for you to get your hands on it. This time around you can look forward to:
- 100 new tiers of content for Season 6 (including brand new armor, back accessories, animated visors, and more)
- Waterfall, a Halo Online map now playable in custom games for Halo 3
- The Exchange
- A brand-new game variant for Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4 – Escalation Slayer
- The ability to change your teams mid-game in custom matches across all titles in MCC
- And more!
- Ready for a full rundown? We’ve got you covered. Read on and make sure you’re all set and ready to go Raven mad.”
That’s a lot of new content for a game created in the late noughties! Halo: The Master Chief Collection is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and is included with Xbox Game Pass.
