Five Reasons We’re Excited for Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is a massive, feature-packed HD compilation, and it’s just about ready to fill your Xbox One with more Halo than you can shake a Gravity Hammer at. Check it: Here are just five reasons why you should be getting pumped for tomorrow’s release of The Master Chief Collection.
1) Switching between classic and updated visuals.
In both Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2: Anniversary, players can switch between the original graphics and the redone upgraded visuals for their respective 10th anniversary re-releases. Believe us, you’ll be swapping back and forth all through Halo 2, because the differences are, frankly, pretty mind-blowing. You can even switch between the original in-game cutscenes and the jaw-dropping new Blur cinematics for a real eye-opening treat. It’s clear that we’ve come a looooooong way in the last 10 years.
2) You get ALL the maps.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection offers multiplayer across all four games, all in one place. This means that you can jump from game to game in one multiplayer sitting. It’s not only an awesomely huge amount of content; it will keep even the best Halo players on their toes. There’s no denying that this is the definitive Halo multiplayer experience. We can’t wait to dive into the custom playlists designed by the folks at developer 343 Industries.
3) Oh hey – have some bigger and better maps, too!
As part of Halo 2: Anniversary, six amazing maps got a facelift. Even better, the changes aren’t just cosmetic, as each of the six maps will have an interactive element to help make them feel fresher than ever. For us, the star of the show is Bloodline, a remake of Halo 2’s Coagulation. It’s bigger, prettier, and full of new vehicles and weapons from the entire Halo series.
4) Play how you want.
Right out of the gate, you have access to every campaign in Halo: The Master Chief Collection. On top of that, the game uses curated playlists, so you can experience the perfect Halo campaign experience. Want to just play the vehicle missions? Don’t worry, you’re covered. You can also set your controls to remain the same across all four games or set it up in whatever way your Spartan-loving heart desires.
5) Get all up in that Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta!
We’re so freaking excited for the upcoming fifth installment in Master Chief’s saga that we can barely stand it, and we know you’re itching to get your hands on Halo 5: Guardians, too. Gamers who snag Halo: The Master Chief Collection guarantee that they’ll get early access to the multiplayer beta, starting onDecember 29!
Halo: The Master Chief Collection launches November 11, exclusively for Xbox One. Relive the experience – from the very start to finishing the fight!
