Halo MCC Season 8 is now officially available on PC and consoles, and as the patch notes reveal, it delivers new content and fixes numerous issues.

Halo The Master Chief Collection has been one of the most successful collection titles of the last generation so far, bleeding into Microsoft’s 9th-gen consoles as well, with enhanced visuals and smoother performance.

Not only the collection revives the campaign of the Halo series, but also it allows players to enjoy the multiplayer section of each Halo title as well. This is probably the most complete package you could ever get for Halo, though the absence of Guardians cannot be ignored.
