The release of Halo Infinite may be a while off yet, but The Master Chief Collection is coming to the Xbox Series X and S on November 17. The re-release will run at up to 120 FPS on Microsoft's new consoles and will feature a host of improvement, such as a refined split-screen mode. Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be free for those who already the collection and also for those who subscribe to Xbox Game Pass.

Microsoft has confirmed a nice treat for Halo fans. While Halo Infinite remains delayed until 2021, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be available on the Xbox Series S and X from November 17, 2020. According to Microsoft, the Master Chief Collection has been 'fully optimized' for the Xbox Series consoles, which translates to 120 FPS gaming in campaign and multiplayer modes.

Microsoft and Xbox Game Studios claim to have improved split-screen mode too, although they are yet to say what changes have been made. The game will run in up to 4K on the Xbox Series X in split-screen mode though, and it will be possible to adjust the field-of-view (FoV) should you wish to do so. Additionally, it will be possible to play the Master Chief Collection on an Xbox Series console against people who has an Xbox One console, meaning that you are not locked to only playing against those who have Microsoft's latest consoles.

Best of all, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be available to play for free on Xbox Series consoles for those who own the game already or have Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Game Studios first brought the Master Chief Collection to the Xbox One in 2014, before eventually releasing it on PC last year. The collection, which still retails for US$39.99 on the Microsoft Store, comprises Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4.
