Microsoft Studios confirmed today during the special Gamescom edition of Inside Xbox that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will join the Xbox Game Pass lineup next month. The title is a package of the first four Halo games for the Xbox One. It will be available for free to all those who have an Xbox Game Pass subscription.
Microsoft launched Xbox Game Pass last year. It’s a Netflix-style service for Xbox games. Subscribers pay a set fee monthly and get access to a library of dozens of Xbox One titles. Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be one of those titles starting September 1st.
The title will join the Xbox Game Pass lineup at a time when a much-awaited update for the title is released. The update brings many fixes and new features to the game, including but not limited to “up to” 4K resolution and HDR color support.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection includes Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4 to the Xbox One. All four games will have improved resolution and HDR support for the Xbox One X.
Xbox Game Pass will be able to download the title as part of their subscription from September 1st and continue playing it as long as they keep paying for the service. An Xbox Game Pass subscription costs $9.99 per month.
