We’re no strangers to Halo/Destiny “coincidences”, with Ghosts, Guardians, Arrays, Oracles and… need I continue? But in this very real-life example, we find more similarity to two of our favorite games. Titan, one of Saturn’s moons, is seen in the above “false-color” image reflecting sun off of one of it’s lakes. The sun also creates a fiery affect on Titan’s…
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!
Here’s that link, and thanks for your support:
Reckless Ri1ey walks us through all the new Forge pieces available in Halo 2: Anniversary from The Master Chief Collection in this video. Quite an impressive palette. Keep in mind, forgers, that the map override bug is back, so maps are not saving correctly in Halo MCC and you will want to save multiple copies of your maps, all with different names, as you create them, or face losing your hard work. Unfortunately, we only have 50 slots to save content in, so this will fill up fast for creators. You can discuss this issue in the Waypoint support forums here.
