Microsoft announced today that Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC has been updated to include Halo 3: ODST.

Halo 3: ODST was originally released in September 2009 on Xbox 360. The game was envisioned as a side project to Halo 3 but morphed into a full game. It was the top-selling game of 2009.

The game was distinct from previous iterations in the franchise. It focuses more on urban combat and lacks Master Chief as the lead character. Instead, you play as Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODST) and are tasked with exploring the streets of New Mombasa.

Here are more details on the PC version from Xbox Wire:

As an ODST you don’t have the firepower or the overshields to go head-to-head with Elites, Brutes, and Hunters. So use stealth and hit-and-run tactics to eliminate threats and sneak behind enemy lines.

That’s not all though, as ODST Firefight is joining Halo: The Master Chief Collection for the first time with online matchmaking, dedicated servers, and new custom game modes! Grab some friends and hop into the fan-favorite mode as you take out wave after wave of Covenant invaders across 10 legacy maps.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC comes equipped with new features, optimizations, and customizations built to take full advantage of the PC – and, Halo 3: ODST is no exception. New Mombasa is looking better than ever at 60 frames-per-second (or greater) with up to 4K UHD support. 

Halo 3: ODST is included as part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC and Xbox One. The Master Chief Collection is available for purchase at the Microsoft Store and Steam. It’s also included free with Xbox Game Pass.
