343 ADDING ODST CAMPAIGN TO HALO: MCC FOR FREE

Post by S7 Sticky on Sat Dec 20, 2014 1:09 am

Y BRIAN ALBERT343 Industries is upgrading the Halo 3: ODST campaign and giving it away for free, alongside other gifts, if you played Halo: The Master Chief Collection between its launch date and today.
The news was announced in a blog post, "A Thank You to Our Fans from Bonnie Ross," written by the studio head at 343.
"This has been a humbling experience and highlighted how we as a studio can – and need – to do better for Xbox fans around the world.  We are so grateful to our fans who have stood by our side and we appreciate all of your patience as we worked through these issues. As a token of our appreciation and to thank fans for the continued support and understanding, we will be offering the following items..."

Note: To be eligible for most of the free content, you must be an "online user" who played Halo: The Master Chief Collection between launch date (November 11, 2014) and today, December 19. The exception is for the newly remastered Halo 2 map, which will be made available to everyone.

  • Halo 3: ODST Campaign: The original Xbox 360 game campaign will be upgraded to run at 1080p and 60 FPS. Development on this "just started," but 343 says we can expect to see it in Spring 2015. It has no plans to include the co-op Firefight mode. The campaign will be delivered through a free download token, and you'll launch it through MCC.

  • One month of Xbox Live Gold: This will be delivered as early as mid-January 2015. 343 will either apply one month of Gold directly to your account or send a redeemable token through the Xbox One message center.

  • Exclusive In-Game Nameplate and Avatar: These will be delivered before 2015 in an upcoming content update. As a thank you to early adopters, they will not be available anywhere else.

  • Remastered Halo 2 "Relic" Map: The re-imagined version of the Halo 2 map Relic will be available in Spring 2015 as part of a free update for all players in Halo 2 Anniversary.


If you aren't eligible for the free ODST campaign, 343 says it "may share more details in the future" regarding other ways to acquire the game.
As a reminder, next week 343 will release a content update that adds all 10 episodes of Halo 4's Spartan Ops mode to MCC.

Wouldn't be surprised if they add it later as a DLC

ODST and Spartan Assault are the only Halo games I lost interest in before finishing.  To me ODST wasn't truly Halo at all.  I did enjoy the reach campaign and hope they do add it.
