In the hype leading up to the release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, we were told that the Halo games were to be included in their original forms. I mistakenly took this to mean this included Forge. I was looking forward to playing Halo 3 more than anything else in the Master Chief Collection. The thought of playing Halo 3 on dedicated servers in 1080p at 60 frames per second… I couldn’t wait.
Cut to post release of MCC. I’m absolutely blown away with how fantastic the Halo 3 maps look on the Xbox One. Citadel, Construct – – mind blowing. Matchmaking, however, continues to be broken, and more than ever we need to be able to access customs.
But guess what? Halo: Master Chief Collection has absolutely no custom game support in Forge for Halo 3. It was not included in the game in it’s original form. In fact, you can only Forge maps that will play basic slayer gametypes. So as of the publishing of this post, there is no Halo 3 Grifball. There is no Halo 3 Rocket Race, and there is no Halo 3 King of the Hill or Flag on custom maps on the Xbox One in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Does this get yer panties in a bunch as bad as it does mine? Well, even if it doesn’t, I implore you to head on over to the Official thread over at Halo Waypoint and help us let it be known that our Forgers and custom games creators need these tools to continue to produce creative content for us to explore and have fun adventures on. Don’t you want to see what they come up with in Halo 3 in 1080p and 60fps? I do!
