Halo Infinite will be the latest addition to the popular sci-fi shooter franchise when it finally arrives, and there are various older Halo titles that you can enjoy in the Master Chief Collection.
Since it’s available on different platforms, sometimes you’ll want to play with friends on a different device. Many games come with a crossplay feature that lets you do just that.
Here’s everything you need to know about crossplay in the Halo Master Chief Collection.
Is Halo Master Chief Collection cross-platform?
Yes, the Halo Master Chief Collection comes with cross-platform play so that you can play with your friends on different platforms, whether you’re on Xbox or PC.
You can make use of this feature when trying out game modes like multiplayer, Firefight, and Forge. However, you can’t use cross-platform options for the campaign and Spartan Ops.
How to enable Halo Master Chief Collection crossplay
If you want to make use of the cross-platform feature in the Master Chief Collection, then you can enable it by going into the game settings and changing the platform-based matchmaking option.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Launch the Master Chief Collection
- Head to Settings
- Open the Network menu
- Set Platform-based Matchmaking to Disabled
Just make sure that your friends have this setting disabled if they also want to participate in matches with you while playing on different platforms. You should also ensure that all of you have at least one common region enabled.

Fortnite leak reveals Dune skins & cosmetics coming soon
Some new leaks have revealed that Epic Games are planning to add skins and cosmetics from the movie Dune in Fortnite Season 8.
A new leak has revealed that Epic Games are planning to add more crossover content in Fortnite Season 8, this time in the form of cosmetic skins from the new Dune film.
Epic Games often introduce new Fortnite skins that align with the release of major blockbuster movies, such as the Venom and Carnage skins that were were added alongside the release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
Now, the developers might be preparing another major crossover as some new leaks have revealed a few skins and cosmetic items that might be coming in Fortnite Season 8 alongside the release of the film Dune.
These leaks came from notable Fortnite data miner HYPEX, who shared images of the new outfits. The bundle will include the characters Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and Chani (Zendaya) from the movie.

According to these leaks, the Dune bundle will also include:
- Twinblades melee weapon
- Maker Hooks
- The Stickworm wallpaper
- Sand Walk emote
- Fremkits for both characters
- Ornithopter attack ship
The Bundle price in the leaked image seemingly costs 4,600 V-Bucks, but HYPEX has stated that this is just the placeholder price, and the real one might be different.
It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and Epic Games have yet to verify this information, so take it with a grain of salt. That said, it makes perfect sense for them to add Dune skins around the film’s release in October 2021.

Road to the Knockouts is FIFA 22’s addition to Road to the Finals cards from previous years of FUT. Here’s everything we know so far about this year’s European promotion, from the players in Team 1 to the upgrade structure and prices.
Ultimate Team’s special cards are one of the key features that keep the mode engaging throughout the long season.
FIFA 22’s next promotion is Road to the Knockouts, based on European football’s top competitions.
Here’s everything you need to know.
- Road to the Knockouts Team 1
- Road to the Knockout start dates
- What is a Road to the Knockouts card?
- Road to the Knockouts upgrades
- Road to the Knockouts Team 2 predictions
FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts Team 1
Team 1 of Road to the Knockouts is live in FIFA 22, and there are some tasty-looking players that could grow into some of the game’s best if their team performs.
Stars from all three of this year’s European competitions are included, from some of the sport’s biggest clubs.
Every member of Team 1 is available in packs, while others have been added later as Squad Building Challenge or objective players.
You can see the full line-up from Team 1, as well as their current prices, below. Players in bold can be claimed by completing an SBC.
|Player Name||Club||Starting Rating||Price|
|Heung Min Son||Spurs||90||1.09 million|
|Leroy Sane||Bayern Munich||88||394,000|
|Matthijs De Ligt||Piemonte Calcio||87||89,000|

FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts start date
RTTK began on Friday, October 15, 2021, with Team 1 landing in packs at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST.
Much to the surprise of many fans, EA began teasing its next promotion almost immediately after the previous one ended.
We expect Team 2 to release on Friday, October 22, 2021, at the same time as the previous week.
It’s unclear at the moment how long the event will last, as Rulebreakers was originally expected to drop on October 22. We’ll update this page as soon as more details are available.
What is FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts?
Based on the information released so far, RTTK appears to be an addition to the usual Road to the Finals promotion.
These cards will increase in rating based on the player’s team’s performance in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, Europa League, or Europa Conference League.
Unlike the Team of the Week, these cards aren’t performance-based. So, even if the player featured on the card doesn’t play, they will still be upgraded if their team makes it through.
EA has already confirmed that RTTK cards are only live for the group stages, and Road to the Finals card will drop later in the year and be completely separate.
How do Road to the Knockouts upgrades work?
Each RTTK player is given an initial boost to their base card, whether it be a plus one in the case of Andrew Robertson, or an upgrade of four to Leroy Sane.
There is then the opportunity to receive two future boosts, based on how their team performs in the group stages of their European competition.
They will be upgraded if their club:
- Qualifies for the knockout stages
- Wins three out of their final four group stage games
If a player qualifies for the Europa League knockout stages by finishing third in their Champions League group, they will not be eligible for an upgrade.
EA is yet to announce how big the upgrades will be, but based on previous years, fans can look forward to an increased overall rating of one or two for each.
FIFA 22 Road to the Knockouts Team 2 predictions
The official second team of RTTK players is yet to be revealed, but there’s plenty of possibilities when you consider the sheer number of players competing across the three tournaments.
Team 1 already has some big names, but some clubs are yet to be represented in the promotion so far.
We’re awaiting the second reveal, so here are our best predictions for who could be part of the second team:
- Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund)
- Timo Werner (Chelsea)
- Ousmane Dembele (Barcelona)
- Yuri Tielemens (Leicester City)
- Gelson Martins (Monaco)
- Moussa Diaby (Bayer Leverkusen)
- Jack Grealish (Manchester City)
- Lorenzo Pellegrini (Roma)
- Karl Toko Ekambi (Lyon)
- Alejandro Gomez (Sevilla)
- Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)
- Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid)

How to see UFOs in GTA Online
UFOs have begun popping up over the GTA Online map, and here’s how you can find them in the Sightseeing event.
UFOs have begun popping up over the GTA Online map, and they might be connected to the next big event in the game. Here’s how you can find the UFO locations in GTA Online.
Rockstar Games frequently introduce new content in GTA Online through weekly updates. The new additions include vehicles, discounts, login rewards, along with cash and RP boosts.
The October 14 update added a flying saucer over Los Santos. Many players have noticed this mysterious UFO and have been searching for it as part of the Sightseeing event.
Here are all the UFO locations in GTA Online.
GTA Online UFO locations
The GTA Online UFO is difficult to find because it appears in different locations on different days. You’ll be able to spot the lights from the flying saucer from a few miles away.
Here are all the UFO locations in GTA Online:
- 15 October 2021: Just off Paleto Forest above the beach
- 16 October 2021: North point of the map near Paleto Bay
- 17 October 2021: Peak of Mt. Chiliad
- 18 October 2021: Around the lighthouse near Grapeseed coast
- 19 October 2021: Altruist Camp radio tower to the west of Mt. Chiliad
- 20 October 2021: Alien Camp near Sandy Shores
The UFO will appear between 10 PM and 3 AM in-game time. However, if you approach it in a vehicle then the flying saucer will disable your ride. Then, you’ll be left stranded as the alien makes its escape.
One interesting thing to note is that on Day 2, the UFO spawned over the drowned saucer that’s been in the game for a while. This has led to fans believing that a major event is coming around Halloween time.
