Listen to this Article:




We are only 10 weeks away from the release of Halo 5: Guardians but the events are not over! 343 will have Halo 5 Warzone playable at PAX Prime but sadly no Halo panel will be held at PAX.

There will be an event at the MS Campus for ID@Xbox it is free to all people and no PAX badge required.  For more info to visit the MS Campus go here



So due to the popular demand, Infection will be the next featured playlist in MCC. The playlist includes:

  • Halo 3: Braaaains, Creeping Death, Save One Bullet, Hide and Seek, Speed Demons
  • Halo 2: Anniversary: Infection, Cadre
  • Halo 4: Flood, Hivemind, Last Stand

” with our next playlist update, Infection will become available as a featured playlist, Action Sack will remain in the lineup, and the Halo Championship Series playlist, featuring H2A’s tournament game types, will be retired. This playlist was the official training ground for HCS play during Seasons 1 and 2, and it served its purpose well. Many epic skirmishes have taken place within this playlist, and these battles will not be soon forgotten. If you want to get some final HCS matches in, be sure to hop into the playlist this weekend.”

Those playlists will no longer respect the list of players you’ve blocked, meaning if you keep losing to someone named frankie, you won’t be able to simply block them to avoid matching with them again.
