A wonderful opportunity has been revealed for PC owners. Microsoft has revealed people who prefer that platform will soon have access to Halo: The Master Chief Collection . A release date has not yet been set yet, but it will give people the ability to play Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4 on the platform. In addition, Halo: Reach will be added.
A few important details about this compilation’s port were announced. First, this will be a staggered release on PCs. That means people who pick up Halo: The Master Chief Collection will get one game at a time as Microsoft rolls them out. Since Halo: Reach isn’t even a part of the collection on the Xbox One yet, that could mean it will be last.
It also means people will need to make an Xbox Live account to play Halo: The Master Chief Collection on a PC. This detail was revealed by the Steam product listing for the compilation, which is already live. As a reminder, an Xbox Live account is free to make.
In addition, mouse and keyboard support will be included for this version of the game, to take advantage of the capabilities a PC would have to offer. There will also be 4K UHD and HDR support.
There is good news for Xbox One owners of Halo: The Master Chief Collection too. Halo: Reach is not currently a part of the collection, but it will be there too! It is going to be considered a premium add-on, so you’d need to pay extra for its campaign and such. However, if you have a Xbox Games Pass subscription, then you will have access to Halo: Reach as part of that.
