As part of the original compensation for the woes of the Master Chief Collection‘s initial release, 343 Industries is finally rolling out the free codes for Halo 3 ODST on Xbox One. All users that logged in on Xbox Live to play the Master Chief Collection between November 11, 2014 and December 19, 2014 will be getting a message from Xbox making them eligible for the free DLC.
Those who purchased the Master Chief Collection after December 19 can still get ODST for $4.99 on the Xbox Store.
Like the other remasters/ports, ODST receives a boost in resolution — now 1080p — and framerate — now 60 fps.
As of right now the game only includes the Campaign mode — leaving out a fan-favorite in firefight. The game does incorporate into various playlists like the LASO Campaign.

Outside of ODST, a variety of other updates and additions are being incorporated in the most recent community update.
A remastering of the Halo 2 map, Relic is now being added to Halo 2: Anniversary under the name Remnant.
File share searches are also being made much more intuitive as 343i adds the ability to search for individual players to access their custom maps, game modes, and more.
