Microsoft's 'Xbox Community Content' platform could bring more mods to Xbox One games.

Microsoft has been rumored to be looking more deeply into mod support for Xbox One for quite a while, thanks to job listings we wrote about in the past. Now, thanks to some internal documents, we have a better idea of how Microsoft plans to turn Xbox One into a great platform for mods and for developers who want to allow mods in their games.

This could be very big if true and done right.

This would be amazing as you say if it's done right. There are so many games that could benefit from mod support.

It's dev controlled in the end, so it's up to them to to allow it and to what extent, but I think that's the right way to have it set up.  Also making it a standard/common way across multiple games helps the creators in the end.   It also makes the platform just a bit more open, and since it sounds like it's coming to Xbox that should translate, one would hope, to the Windows Store as well.

      Halo 4 Insider session extended, adds Halo Reach multiplayer for cross-play tests
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The latest Halo: The Master Chief Collection Insider session has received an extension and new features. The Halo 4-focused test began last week, and following today's extension, invited PC and Xbox One Insiders will be able to keep participating in the flight until November 6.

      The new content comes in the form of Halo: Reach's multiplayer, including both multiplayer and Firefight modes, which Insiders will now download via a build update on all platforms. The intent of this bonus content is to further test the PC and Xbox One cross-play capabilities the studio is introducing with the Halo 4 launch onto the PC version of the Master Chief Collection.

      The flight update also applies bug fixes for the current Halo 4 build and improvements to Halo: Reach. The full patch notes are available for Insiders to see on their HaloWaypoint Insider portal.

      343 Industries invited every eligible Halo Insider to this flight as it prepares to launch the final game of the collection for PC. However, Insider sessions won't stop here, so those who are interested can still sign up for future flights by heading here. The Halo 4 content being tested in this flight was detailed last week, and can be found here.

      You can earn these Destiny 2: Trials of Osiris rewards from October 30 to November 3
      by Asher Madan



      Every week, Destiny 2 hosts a Trials of Osiris event where teams of three compete for access to The Lighthouse. The Lighthouse promises Pinnacle rewards that boost you closer to the current Power Level cap.

      The player vs. player competition also grants other items if you get three, five, or seven wins. However, you'll have to get seven wins in a row, without a loss, if you want to grab the Pinnacle gear from The Lighthouse. You can take a look at the Trials of Osiris rewards from October 30 to November 3 below.

      Three wins: Tomorrow's Answer legendary rocket launcher Five wins: Chest of the Exile legendary armor Seven wins: Eye of Sol legendary sniper rifle Flawless: Hands of the Exile legendary armor Trials of Osiris starts at 1 PM EDT on Friday and lasts until 1 PM EDT on Tuesday. You can use the Passage of Mercy from Saint-14 because it forgives one loss if you're aiming for Flawless. If you manage to get seven wins in a row, you'll have to manually select The Lighthouse location displayed in the Crucible menu to obtain the Pinnacle reward. This involves jumping across a few platforms and opening the chest where Saint-14 and Osiris are standing.

      Xbox Games with Gold for November includes Full Spectrum Warrior and more
      by Rich Woods

      Microsoft revealed today next month's round of four games for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members. This time around, there are the usual two Xbox One games, but the other two are split between one Xbox 360 game and one game for the original Xbox. Obviously, they can all be played on the company's current generation of consoles, and they'll actually be available to play on the next generation of consoles (Xbox Series X|S) as well, being that those consoles can play anything that's playable on the Xbox One family.

      Here are the free Games with Gold titles announced today and their arrival dates:

      Aragami: Shadow Edition (Xbox One, November 1 - 30)

      Swimsanity! (November 16 - December 15)

      Full Spectrum Warrior (Xbox, November 1 - 15)

      LEGO Indiana Jones (Xbox 360, November 16 - 30)

      As usual, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers need to claim their games between the designated dates, and if they cancel their subscription, they'll only be able to keep the Xbox and Xbox 360 games.

      Note that you can still claim most of last month's Games with Gold. There are a couple of days left to grab Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut (Xbox One) and Costume Quest (Xbox 360), and you've got until November 15 to claim Maid of Sker (Xbox One).

      Halo Infinite studio head Chris Lee steps down
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Changes are happening inside Halo developer 343 Industries, as a new report reveals that Halo Infinite studio head Chris Lee has been taken off the massive project. Lee has lead the Halo series since 2016, and although he is off Infinite, he will remain a Microsoft employee according to an official statement by Microsoft.

      "I have stepped back from Infinite and I am looking at future opportunities," Chris Lee had said to Bloomberg. "I believe in the team and am confident they will deliver a great game and now is a good time for me to step away."

      Originally set to be the defining launch title of the next-gen Xbox consoles, Halo Infinite suffered a delay that pushed it back to 2021. According to the Bloomberg report, Lee's role was sidelined following the poor reception to the Halo Infinite gameplay showcase. Series veterans Joseph Staten and Pierre Hintze stepped in to help with the campaign and multiplayer, respectively, back in August.

      This is not the first time Halo Infinite has lost a top executive, with creative director Tim Longo departing the project in 2019.

      Halo Infinite is currently slated to land sometime in 2021 across the Xbox One family of consoles, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
