We reported a while back about the confirmation of Halo: The Master Chief Collection here, and now, we now know the release date as well. Master Chief?s new journey on the Xbox One now begins and 343 Industries followed through on their promise from last year?s E3. It?s a bit different from what many may have initially thought but it?s a follow through nonetheless.
It seems like Halo 5: Guardians won?t be arriving until 2015. Instead, a comprehensive look back at Master Chief?s story line will be coming to the Xbox One this fall and the game is named Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
The game compilation is an optimized, high definition version that includes four games namely Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4. The game retails for $59.99 and the package will include practically everything like having every level, every multiplayer map (which is at more than 100), every gameplay mode, and even those original bugs or little idiosyncrasies. The game will run at a resolution of 1080p and at 60 frames per second. For the multiplayer aspect, there will be dedicated servers to handle the load and the game will also offer achievements that are unique to the collection.
The collection is designed to have everything ready from the start so that players no longer need to unlock everything step by step. Players will be able to dive right in to relive their favorite moments of the games.
The center of attention for the whole collection is Halo 2. The reason for this is because of its 10th anniversary. Halo 2 will be getting brand new visual assets to further enhance the graphics of the game. Players will be able to swap between the original Xbox visuals and the new Xbox one visuals with a simple press of a button.
The Master Chief Collection seems to have something else up its sleeve as they are introducing a new digital series called Halo Nightfall. The series is designed to have weekly episodes and will focus on Master Chief?s past and future.
343 should still be holding a few more surprises when the game releases so we?ll have to wait until the game gets launched.
