Halo 3

Two thirds of the Halo: Master Chief Collection is now playable on PC. Halo 3 was added to the MCC collection and can now be downloaded. The game was added via a massive update, ranging from 17GB to 24GB, depending on the platform and online store. The update is not just about Halo 3, as it also introduced tons of new features and improved some existing ones across the Collection. Xbox One also received the same update.

For PC users, Forge mode has been added in Halo: Reach, Halo 2: Anniversary, and Halo 3. Halo 3's Forge has been drastically improved. It now has object physics, precision edit tools, coordinate snaps, and rotation support. Pallets in H3 and Reach’s Forge got a budget increase and were expanded with new objects.
