343 Industries has announced that Halo: The Master Chief Collection has received a substantial update, adding 'modern aiming' to the game in response to feedback from certain players stating that "aim acceleration" in the game doesn't "feel right". The update will "smooth out" aim acceleration, using values closer to Halo 2 Anniversary and Halo 4. You can change this in the game's controller settings.

Eight additional skulls have also been added to Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary's campaign, listed below:

  • Anger – Enemies and allies fire their weapons faster and more frequently.
  • Bandana – Fixed a bug with this skull so now energy-based weapons have infinite ammo as well.
  • Catch – Enemies throw and drop more grenades.
  • Ghost – A.I. characters will not flinch from attacks, melee or otherwise.
  • Sputnik – the Mass of objects is decreased, making them more easily displaced
  • That's Just Wrong – Strengthens the hearing of both allies and enemies. They will now notice the slightest sound of reloading or drawing a weapon, footsteps, etc. A.I. also have increased accuracy.
  • Thunderstorm – Field Promotions to the ranks of all A.I. characters so they are more difficult to fight, smarter, and more dangerous.
  • Tough Luck – Enemies always go berserk, always dive out of the way, and never flee.

Changes to Social Matchmaking have also been implemented, with the latest rotational playlist 'Super Duper Fiesta!' now available to enjoy across Halo 2 Classic, Halo 3, Halo 4 and Halo 2 Anniversary in Social Games under the 'Game Preset' option. This replaces the 'Team Action Sack' option for now.

The January Halo: The Master Collection update is available now, and also includes a litany of bug fixes that can be perused in full here.
