Microsoft has released a launch trailer for the upcoming game compilation ‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection.’
The launch trailer acts as a greatest hits of sorts and shows off a lot gameplay across every major title in the ‘Halo’ franchise. There is also some footage of the much anticipated remake of ‘Halo 2: Anniversary,’ an enhanced edition of the famous sequel featuring all-new high definition graphics and redone cutscenes. Along with all of the gameplay comes a little tease of some ‘Halo 5: Guardians’ CGI footage as well.
For those unaware, ‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ is a compilation that will feature remastered versions of the main entries of the famous first person shooter franchise. Included are ‘Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary,’ ‘Halo 2: Anniversary,’ ‘Halo 3,’ and ‘Halo 4.’ Unfortunately, series spin-offs ‘Halo 3: ODST,’ ‘Halo: Reach’ and ‘Halo Wars’ will not be included.
As stated, each game included will be remastered to some capacity. For starters, each game has received graphical updates to their lighting and will all run at 60 FPS. With the exception of ‘Halo 2: Anniversary,’ each ‘Halo’ title included will have a native resolution of 1080p. As expected, ‘Halo 2: Anniversary’ has received the most graphical and performance updates among the games included.
As an added bonus, the compilation comes complete with every ‘Halo’ title’s post-release add-on content as well as all multiplayer maps from each game’s respective multiplayer modes. ‘Halo: Nightfall,’ a live-action digital series will be included in the game’s extras menu, and to top it all off, players will also gain access to the upcoming ‘Halo 5: Guardians’ multiplayer beta starting December 27.
‘Halo’ is a series that was originally created by Bungie back in 2011. The series had been solely developed by them up until 2010 when duties were passed on to 343 Industries, a team that has gone on to develop ‘Halo 4’ and are now working on the upcoming ‘Halo 5: Guardians.’
‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ will release on Xbox one on November 11.
