Halo: The Master Chief Collection November update includes Match Composer

Getting into your favorite type of Halo multiplayer match just got a little bit easier with the latest Halo: MCC update.


Years after its release, 343 Industries is continuing to offer substantial updates for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The November 2018 update looks to be one of the more anticipated ones to date, with 343 targeting social matchmaking, along with some additional new options.

Following extensive testing, the Halo MCC November update is debuting the new Match Composer. This has been colloquially referred to as mixtape matchmaking, in the sense that players can lay out five different game types from across any of the MCC's games and search for sessions between all of them. This is in an effort to reduce wait times, though wait times are ultimately subject to the parameters set. There are numerous options and presets to select from, all of which are detailed on Halo Waypoint.

In addition to Match Composer, players can also customize their controller more extensively. Players can adjust their Horizontal and Vertical Look Sensitivities, Look Acceleration, and Look Dead Zone options and set them for each individual game in the MCC. It's not exactly mouse and keyboard, but it should help make life a little better for the hardcore Halo player. Other changes include a variety of bug fixes, along with a modern option for Halo: Combat Evolved, in which players have the choice to include multiplayer timers to show how much time is left in their game.

The Halo: The Master Chief Collection November update is up and running now.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
