I’m not going to lie, the only reason I was looking at the latest MCC update from 343 Industries via Halo Waypoint was to see the progress that the developer was making with bringing Halo: Reach to PC (we’re getting there). In the October MCC update, 343i talks about a lot of things regarding Reach and its flights, but one thing that really stood out had to do with customisation.
When Halo: Reach joins MCC several new key features will go live for the entire game. One of these new features is an all new progression system that will keep track of and allow you to level up a global rank across all titles available in MCC. For PC, you will only have Halo: Reach to start, but for those playing on the Xbox, all multiplayer matchmaking in the collection will give you experience points to level up. For the first season, you will earn points to unlock content for character customization in Halo: Reach. – 343i via Halo Waypoint
That’s right, following the trend of other games like Destiny 2, Apex Legends and Fortnite, The Master Chief Collection is getting its own Battle Pass which will reward players with a variety of cosmetics for playing the game. It appears that there will only be one version of this battle pass, a version that is available to all MCC players, and that it will track progress across the entirety of MCC and not just the upcoming Halo: Reach addition.
There is still no solid release date (or window) for Halo: Reach on The Master Chief collection, but it does appear to be making some steady progress.
