Earn double XP for playing Halo 5 or MCC, to help “make your time inside more enjoyable”

Dave W. Shanahan

As the coronavirus crisis continues, Microsoft is making it a little easier to pass the time indoors. 343 Industries, developer of the Halo franchise, announced on Twitter today that you can earn double XP points while playing Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One, as well as Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One and Windows 10. If you’re a Halo fan, the double XP points for Halo 5: Guardians and the added bonus of earning free Arena and Warzone XP Boost Packs weekly is too good to pass up.

As you may know, Halo: Combat Evolved recently landed in Halo: MCC for PC, and just like Halo: Reach, the game is free to play with Xbox Game Pass for PC. On console, both Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: MCC are also free with Xbox Game Pass.

If you are stuck inside, it may be the perfect time to revisit Halo 5: Guardians and Halo The Master Chief Collection before Halo Infinite comes later this year. What Xbox One or Windows 10 game are you playing to pass the time while stuck inside due to the coronavirus? Let us know in the comments.
