The Master Chief Collection and Halo 5: Guardians Beta at E3 2014

Microsoft Makes Two Big Announcements at Their Media Briefing

June 15, 2014 by

With the 10th anniversary of Halo 2 coming up this November, many had predicted that a re-mastered version was on the way for Xbox One. But at this year’s E3 Media Briefing, Microsoft gave Halo fanboys more than they could ever dream of with the entire catalog of Halo games being grouped together on one disc with upgraded graphics and set for release this fall. Halo 2 was the first of the series to be playable online, so there’s sure to be plenty of happy gamers ready to relieve the glory days on the 6 re-mastered classic Halo 2 maps and the other 100 maps included in the Master Chief Collection.

This will also be the first time ever that Master Chief’s entire story will be playable on a single console and will also include the new digital series Halo: Nightfall and access to the Halo 5: Guardians beta.

Still, with all the Halo news, it was a bit underwhelming to not see more information on Halo 5 and a bit odd that they chose to use a CGI trailer to showcase the game’s multiplayer that’s supposed to run at 60fps. Either way, Halo fans should be happy later this year to finally get some Halo on Xbox One.
