    Default Halo: The Master Chief Collection - Nov 11 2014

    This will feature Halo 1-4. The first two are anniversary versions with 3 and 4 getting an upressing. Everything will be 1080p and run at 60fps.

    The multiplayer for each game will be separate and have its original engine.

    It will also come with the Halo 5 mp beta and a web series produced by Ridley Scott.

    Announcement trailer:



    And a look at the Halo 2 multiplayer:

    One thing they do now, I noticed, is they have these platform wars, like "Xbox is better than Playstation." That's nerdy to me. What the fuck is the matter with you?

    I didn't watch any of their press conference. Did it seem like Halo 1 will have it's own MP with XBL support?

    With the halo1 anniversary we only got map packs for reach.

    Yep, each game has its own separate mp now. No more homogenized map packs.

    I'll pick this up then. Halo 1 MP was amazing, 2's was pretty damn good too. I know I'm not the only one on here that had system link parties on Halo 1.

    When I was on active duty we use to have lots of Halo 1 system link parties. We even had a system link tournament where the winner got a copy of Halo 2 limited edition.

    I would hope that at some point, this gets ported to PC. I've wanted to play Halo for a while now, but I refuse to play a FPS with a controller (I just find it incredibly awkward now). Halo 1, 2, and 3 made it to PC, but I don't think 4 did.

    Fat chance of this happening though.

    When did Halo 3 come to PC? Are you sure about that? Like really sure?

    Edit: yeah, Halo 3 never came to PC. There were some rumors surrounding some AMD patch notes last year, but Microsoft officially said they had no plans to bring it to PC.

    While they seem to be warming up to the PC again, there is basically no reason for them to put out the MCC on PC for at least a year after release. It could move a few people to upgrade from 360 to the XB1, and they aren't going to make a significant enough amount of money to offset that. Not to mention it's more or less marketing to build up excitement for Halo 5, which again will not get a PC release anytime soon.

    Why are only 6 multiplayer maps in Halo 2 getting the upgraded graphics? The multiplayer is the most important part of this release and they can only do part of the maps?!?!

    Six maps are being remade to take advantage of the extra Xbox One capabilities of the 'Halo 2: Anniversary' engine. Lighting, geometry, textures, etc. Both the original design (layout) of the maps and all their quirks are being preserved. The other 90+ mp maps have to make do with a rendering up-res and increased framerate. Maybe six seems low to the paying customer, but rebuilding maps to suit a more powerful engine while maintaining the original feel is no joke.
