Halo: The Master Chief Collection Patch Adds Custom Game Browser For A Stress Test
We're a group of animal lovers who want to solve everyday problems pets and their owners face, in fun and innovative ways.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection has released a new update that sets the stage for the introduction of one of the game’s most highly anticipated features, the Custom Game Browser. This update introduces a “test-ready” version of the browser that will be available for a limited time as a stress test before it’s ready for its full debut.
For the purposes of the test, only Halo: Reach will be supported for the Custom Game Browser. The test is scheduled to begin at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on April 29.
“The Custom Games Browser is a massive feature that we feel bridges an important gap between custom games and matchmade games,” Szlagor said. “For matchmaking, it is important to curate a selection of maps and modes that appeal to a large enough audience who can easily find games to join. For ranked in particular, we also need to be mindful of the types of modes and maps that competitive players enjoy and that we can match players into appropriately difficult matches.”
The April 28 patch for MCC also fixes a series of issues, including a problems that could trigger crashes in different scenarios. Additionally, the problem with Halo: Combat Evolved audio and reverb across several maps has been addressed with the update.
You can see the full patch notes below, as shared by 343 Industries on its website.
