Halo: The Master Chief Collection gets Action Sack playlist today

343 is bringing back Halo's Action Sack playlist in a major way to The Master Chief Collection.


The Halo playlist with the strangest and most fun modes is back. And because of the number of Halo games in The Master Chief Collection, the list is even crazier and larger than usual.

Developer 343 outlined the large number of modes coming to each game, which all fall under the same Action Sack playlist.

Here's what you get for each game:
