Halo: The Master Chief Collection's Launch Day Multiplayer Playlists Revealed

Halo‘s multiplayer playlists have always been a huge draw to a large number of Halo fans. Some of the more popular game types, such as Grifball, even show up as their own playlists. 343 Industries has a tall order on their hands when having to mold together playlists from across four games worth of maps and game types, and earlier today they released their launch day multiplayer playlists for the upcoming Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

  • Team Halo 2: Anniversary – A mix of Team Slayer and objective game types on remastered maps. 4v4.
  • Halo 2: Anniversary Rumble – Free-for-all on remastered maps. 8 players.
  • Team Halo 2: Anniversary Social – Unranked Team Slayer and objective game types on remastered maps. 5v5.
  • Team Slayer – Battle it out against another team on maps from Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 2: Anniversary. 4v4.
  • Big Team Battle – Huge 16-player battles with vehicular warfare on maps from Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo 2: Anniversary. 8v8.
  • Halo: Combat Evolved – A mix of Slayer and objective game types on maps from Halo: Combat Evolved. 4v4.
  • Halo 2 Classic – The most popular Team Slayer and objective game types from Halo 2. 4v4.
  • Halo 3 – Fan-favorite Team Slayer and objective game types from Halo 3. 4v4.
  • Halo 4 – Team Slayer and objective game types from Halo 4 on a selection of small to medium maps. 5v5.
  • Team Hardcore – Tournament-approved game types from Halo 2 and Halo 3. Your primary weapon is the Battle Rifle. 4v4.
  • Halo eSports – Official Halo eSports playlist. 4v4.
  • SWAT (Rotational) – SWAT game types from 343’s favorite maps from Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo 2: Anniversary. Players have no shields and start with Battle Rifles. 4v4.

I got a chance to play the remastered Lockout map from Halo 2 at PAX Prime, and it looked great and was just as fun as I remember. I can’t wait to see the paint job all the other maps from throughout Halo history that will be popping up in these playlists.
