During their E3 2014 Media Briefing earlier today, Microsoft announced Halo: The Master Chief Collection for Xbox One. The game will be a comprehensive collection of the Halo franchise up to this point, and will include Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4. Halo 2 Anniversary is a brand-new version of the game for its 10th Anniversary, and will feature entirely redone graphics similar to that seen in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Fable Anniversary, as well as redone CG cinematics.
The most exciting thing about this collection for Halo fans, however, will likely be the multiplayer. The compilation includes all four Halo games in their entirety. This means that the original multiplayer for each game is intact, and the collection includes every map and every gameplay mode for each individual game. This means you are getting the full multiplayer experience for every single game in the entire series in a single package. The games will all run in 1080p at 60 fps.
The collection has some other features as well. All content from all the games (including all the multiplayer maps and single player levels) will be unlocked from the start, and the game will feature Mission Setlists, which will be curated playlists of particular moments from across the entire franchise.
The game contains even more bonuses for Halo fans. The collection will also ship with Halo Nightfall, a new digital series produced by Ridley Scott that will lead into Halo 5. Furthermore, in December, those who have purchased the collection will be given access to the Halo 5 beta.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be launching on November 11 for the Xbox One and will retail for $59.99. This seems to be an incredible value and will have a lot to offer to fans both old and new. If you’ve never played a Halo game before, now is the best time to start.
