It would be an understatement to say the release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection wasn’t a smooth launch.
Plagued with all kinds of issues, Microsoft has started applying an “Apology Package” for the kerfuffle. For anyone who purchased the game and have played the title online on or before December 19, 2014, the company is giving one month of Xbox Live Gold subscription.
Owners don’t need to do a thing, for buyers who received a message; the service has already been applied to their accounts.
It was also revealed that buyers will receive an exclusive in-game nameplate, avatar and the campaign for Halo 3: ODST and the Relic multiplayer map for Halo 2: Anniversary which will be delivered in spring of 2015. This will require a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection to play.
