Today during their E3 press conference, Microsoft revealed that they are planning on releasing the Halo: Master Chief Collection on November 11th. This release will contain Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4 for the Xbox One. All of these games will be available right from the start on a single disc and players can even create custom playlists to play their favorite moments all in a row.
Halo 1 will be released in its HD version and Halo 2 will also be given a significant HD upgrade that will allow players to switch between the new HD visuals and the classic mode. Halo 2’s multiplayer will also be released with a graphical upgrade, but the gameplay mechanics themselves will be completely untouched. This means the game’s iconic multiplayer will be “exactly as it shipped ten years ago.” The company also revealed that anyone who pre-orders the Master Chief Collection will gain access to a Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta.
