There is still a lot of time until the release of Halo Infinite later this year, but that doesn't mean that Halo fans don't have things to be excited about this spring.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is entering its 6th season this April, and that means a whole lot of new content, all completely for free.
Developers over at 343 Industries have been preparing Season 6 Raven content since November last year. The season's name and emblem are referencing Fireteam Raven, and some of the new content is heavily inspired by this Orbital Drop Shock Trooper unit.
Season 6 Raven will come with over 100 tiers of content to unlock, and it includes new armour, vehicle skins, weapon skins, animated visors, Seasonal Challenges, Back accessory customization, and more.
A vast majority of this content is related to Halo 3, though some features are coming to the collection as a whole.
But not everything new is related to new content, the update also brings a bunch of new features and fixes, so let's check everything new that's coming in Halo: The Master Chief Collection with Season 6 Raven.

Season 6 will bring full Mouse & Keyboard support for consoles, as well as double keybindings.
