Halo 3 and ODST are now crossplayable through the Master Chief Collection.
Developer 343 Industries has released a new update for the eight-year-old game (or 15 for Halo 3 and 13 for ODST) that adds a bunch of new features.
Players can now play the Halo 3 and ODST campaigns cooperatively with other players, whether playing on Xbox One, Series, or PC.
This may not work perfectly right away, 343 Industries warned, as “the team needs additional insights from real players with different network settings,” they said in a blog post.
The update adds several more features to the Master Chief Collection and weighs in at 21.56GB on Xbox, 26.5GB on the Xbox PC app, and 11.2GB on Steam.
A new mode called Flood Firefight has also been added to ODST, which essentially adds new enemies to the already existing Firefight mode.

Bringing something spooky to the mode with a fog accompanying them into battle, the Flood enemies can now crew vehicles, deploy support weapons like turrets, and infect ODSTs and Elite Majors.
General performance improvements and bug fixes have been made across all Master Chief Collection games, and 343 Industries has promised to keep improving them in the future.
In our September 10 review, IGN said, “Despite MP issues, Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s classic campaigns are amazing examples of FPS done right.”
