Microsoft has announced at E3 that previous versions of Halo will be launching on the new Xbox One, as the Halo Master Chief Collection.
We heard a rumor that these games would be headed to the Xbox One last month, and now Microsoft has confirmed that the collection will include Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4.
More than a mere bundle of previously released games, however, “The Master Chief Collection” is a beast of an offering brimming with more bonuses, enhancements, and extras than you can shake an Energy Sword at. For starters, each title is optimized to take full advantage of the Xbox One’s power and will run at 60 frames-per-second. So, even the series’ most recent releases – “Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary” and “Halo 4” – will benefit from the jump to Xbox One, sporting much higher fidelity, better shadowing, reflection, and lighting effects, as well as an overall level of detail that trumps the previous console generation.
These the new Halo Master Chief Collection will launch on single disk and it will retail for $59.99, they will launch on the Xbox One in November, have a look at the trailer below.
Microsoft will also be launching Halo 5 Guardians in 2015, and the good news is that the Halo Master Chief Collection will include Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta. You can find out more information over at Microsoft at the link below.
