Master Chief Collection

343 Industries announce the MCC’s LAN support and future events

Global Championships

Since The Master Chief Collection’s announcement at E3, plans for several LAN tournaments have been unveiled. UGC pledged a $10k event for Halo 2 Anniversary, whilst 343 Industries themselves are hosting another throughout next week’s Gamescom.

343 Industries’ Franchise Media Manager, che chou, has only today confirmed a further tournament at PAX Prime in Seattle come the end of this month.

As plans for LAN events emerged, the main concern was simple: Does the Master Chief Collection even support LAN? This feature has not been a given for the Xbox One, what with a lack of offline profiles. Now the same employee, che chou has confirmed the game will indeed support LAN.

However, he later states that in doing so, internet connection will still be required.

Furthering Che’s news breaking today, he also proclaims that professional gamers will be streaming Halo 2: Anniversary throughout next week, via the official Halo Twitch channel.

Those participating include 343 Industries’ very own Halo pros such as GH057ayame, Mason Cobb and Derskey.

    So we need to be online to do LAN things? What’s the point, that’s basically just getting on Xbox Live to play with people. lol

    I don’t think 4 consoles will be able to easily connect to WiFi, but then again She does say the connection doesn’t have to be that robust.
