Halo is a mainstay for the Xbox platform, but the first two games of the popular sci-fi shooter were also available on the PC. A new collection will bring all the core games of the franchise to Windows computers so they can be played with the best graphics a PC can handle.
Halo: Master Chief Collection is now available on PCs through the Windows Store and for the first time on Steam for $ 39.99. The games in the collection will be released during the year 2020. The first title, Halo: Reach, will be released on Tuesday. The other games are Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4. You can buy Halo: Reach for $ 9.99. There will also be a cross game between the Steam and Windows versions of the game. Halo: Reach is now also available on the Xbox Games Pass.
PC modders, who want to have creative fun with the game, will find that they have a license with Halo: Reach's campaign and custom games. A member of 343 Industries, the current developer of Halo games, has developed the game to announce that modding will be available.
"We're still working on improving that, but for now you have an option if you bypass Anticheat," the developer said Monday. "This way, you can play around with campaigns and practices, but you can not play matches that have been created with matches, so I strongly recommend making a copy / backup of everything you've changed so you can easily switch back and forth .
