For the first time ever, the series that changed console gaming forever comes to PC with six blockbuster games in one epic experience, delivered over time and available for individual purchase. Featuring Halo: Reach along with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, the Halo 3: ODST Campaign and Halo 4. Now optimized for PC with mouse and keyboard support, native PC features and up to 4K UHD and HDR, this is the collection Halo fans have been waiting for.
Honoring the iconic hero and his epic story, The Master Chief Collection offers players their own exciting journey through the Halo saga. Starting with the incredible bravery of Noble Six in Halo: Reach and ending with the rise of a new enemy in Halo 4, the games will release in order of the fictional story. When complete, the Master Chief’s saga will total 68 campaign missions from all six games.
Each game released into the collection also adds new multiplayer maps, modes and game types, building a unified multiplayer suite that expands over time. When finished, The Master Chief Collection will have the most diverse and expansive Halo multiplayer experience to date, with more than 140 multiplayer maps (including the original Halo Combat Evolved maps) and Spartan Ops maps. Not to mention, countless ways to play with community created Forge content.

Halo: The Master Chief collection recently released Season 7 which, amongst other improvements like visual fixes to Halo: Combat Evolved and cosmetic updates to player-controlled Elites, also features the return of official modding tools for Halo games.
The Season 7 release comes with many new customisation options for Elites, backported from the cancelled Russian free-to-play Halo game, Halo: Online
Halo: Custom Edition is a port of Combat Evolved created by Gearbox in 2003 as part of their PC port for the main game. It came with numerous modding tools that allowed players to create their own maps, vehicles, and weapons. Barring the inclusion of Forge mode into later Halos, which is more of a built-in level editor than a full-on modding tool, this was the last time a Halo game had official modding support - until recently.
The new modding tools in Season 7 are, for the most part, very similar to the tools once used for modding Custom Edition. They allow numerous changes to be made to the Halo Combat Evolved sandbox, including entity placement, level layouts, and more. What’s more, they’re compatible with many older Custom Edition mods, meaning some of the simpler mods can actually be ported into The Master Chief Collection with minimal work.

That being said, many players had created third-party modding tools for The Master Chief Collection that allowed broader modding of the other games contained in the collection (a particularly popular option being Halo: Reach, which received mods like Halo Reach Evolved). As third party modding tools grew increasingly developed, so too did the community’s modding efforts, and it appears the sheer bulk of changes to the backend of MCC in their latest update broke a significant portion of the existing mods for the game.

Many fan-favourite mods are currently not playable on the newest version of Master Chief Collection and require patching. However, some mods - like Halo Reach: Covenant Campaign - would require total reworks to function again. There’s calls from the community for a conversion tool by 343 Industries that would rectify these issues, but as of yet, there’s been no response on the matter.
ModDB hosts a number of mods for both older Halo game ports that are a great experience in the meantime, like Halo: SPV3, or The Silent Cartographer: Evolved, and with any luck, 343 will rectify the issue soon and allow many long-standing mods to flourish once again.
