Halo 3: ODST Campaign Added to The Master Chief Collection (Free For Early Adopters)

In a two-part downloadable content drop today, 343 Industries has added the Halo 3: ODST campaign as well as the “Remnant” map for Halo 2: Anniversary multiplayer to Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One.

The multiplayer map is free to all players. The Halo 3: ODST campaign is also a free digital download, but only if you bought the Master Chief Collection and connected to Xbox Live between November 11th and December 19th of last year. If you beat that deadline, you should have already received your free code. However, if you didn’t play the game before the cutoff date, the campaign is on the Xbox Store as paid DLC for only $4.99.

Hit play on the video up top for a commentated gameplay walkthrough of the Halo 3: ODST campaign. A breakdown of the Remnant map can be viewed on YouTube here. Scroll along on this page for additional details about the new content as well as screenshots.

“Remnant” Multiplayer Map Comes to Halo 2: Anniversary

A secluded island, hidden along the coastal regions of Delta Halo, “Remnant” features a towering and iconic Forerunner megalith, weathered over untold millennia. The map’s asymmetric layout and the artifact’s elevated, yet embedded, position, make it perfect for classic Slayer, Assault, and 1-Flag CTF game types. Of course, this re-imagined version of the classic map sports its share of innovations.
