Halo: The Master Chief Collection Content Update 5 Released December 7, 2014Posted by Maniac in Game News.
Here we are again. Another day, another content update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
The new update mostly addresses matchmaking issues, as well as some issues obtaining certain achievements. You can read the complete patch log here.
The demand for this update is pretty high tonight. Since you must install patches to play Xbox One games online, the patch is being downloaded like crazy by all of the players tonight and that might give you error messages if you try to install it. Just keep at it, eventually the Xbox Live service will allow you to download it. If you previously had the most recent content update installed, this new one clocks in at just over a GB.
I have a theory that the current issues with this game go deeper than just problems with the game itself, and it could be based on fundamental issues with the Xbox Live servers. On the day of the game’s launch I earned six achievements in the game, none of which were awarded to me when I earned them. While eventually some of the achievements would gradually be awarded to me in the days that passed, I still have not been awarded at least one of those achievements, and there have been plenty more achievements that my profile simply hasn’t recorded, like terminals in Halo 3 or Skulls in Halo 2 Anniversary. Perhaps the Collection was far to grand an ambition for Microsoft to deliver with any sense of polish. Time will tell if they will be able to make players happy with the game, but so far there are plenty of players, especially multiplayer users, who are not happy.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is out now exclusively on Xbox One.
