It's been another big week for the Halo series - with 343 launching Season 8 of Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox Series X|S and PC.

To celebrate, Xbox has this weekend made the MCC entirely free until October 17 (aka tomorrow). You'll be able to dive in and try out all of the game's content - including the new season on offer.

In addition to this, the MCC is currently half-price this weekend on Xbox and PC. As 343's community manager, John Junyszek, notes - that's a total of six Halo games (including multiplayer and campaigns) for just $20 each or your regional equivalent.

Season 8 includes new Mythic armour sets, a new but old level for Halo 3, new collectables, improved UI for certain games in the collection and much more. See what else is free-to-play on Xbox this weekend in our 'Free Play Days' article.
