Earlier today, 343 Industries released the Season 7 update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The update includes a number of features that Halo fans should appreciate. Specifically, the update adds new tools for modders to use in Halo: combat has evolved. Interestingly enough, modders don’t even have to own Halo: The Master Chief Collection use these tools; they are simply available to all Steam users in the “Tools” section. Those without a Steam account will need to create one to use these new mod tools. It will be interesting to see what fans will come up with now that they are available!

The tools included appear to be the same as those offered in Halo: custom edition, which was released by Gearbox Software in 2004. This version has gained a lot of followers, and it will be interesting to see whether or not modders embrace these tools now that they are available again.
These mod tools could be perfect to keep Halo fans busy while they wait patiently for the release of Infinite halo. The game was supposed to launch alongside the Xbox Series X, but it was postponed to give 343 Industries more development time. A release date set for Infinite halo has not been announced at the time of this writing, but the game is slated for release this holiday season. This has led to some speculation that the game will be pushed back again, but it remains to be seen if that will be the case. Hopefully fans get more Halo for the holidays!
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is available now, exclusively on Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC. You can check out our previous coverage of the compilation here.
