  • Halo Spartan Ops Added to MCC

    halo spartan ops mccWhilst we all rightly presumed that the Master Chief Collection was going to be released with all of the content from previous games at launch, 343 Industries has been very far behind with development, due to server issues and other problems with the new Halo 2 anniversary multiplayer.

    As a result, many in-game features and content of the Master Chief Collection has been unavailable since launch, including the Spartan Ops missions that were released as part of Halo 4.

    The Spartan Ops missions were a set of in-game objectives that followed a set story and played out like the firefight game type in both Halo: Reach and Halo 3: ODST did. Unlike firefight, Spartan Ops were specially designed to delve into the story that took place whilst the Master Chief was floating about in space, and many players have complained that they are an incredibly important part of Halo 4.

    Fortunately enough, 343 Industries have just launched Spartan Ops for the Master Chief Collection in a new patch, and it contains all of the episodes from Halo 4 right at launch - this is a total of 10 co-op based episodes that can now be accessed from the Halo 4 section of the Master Chief Collection.

    If you didn't play through the Spartan Ops episodes on the Xbox 360 due to 343's strange release schedule for them, then you should definitely give them a go now that they are on the Xbox One, especially if you are a fan of the Halo universe and it's story.

  • New Master Chief Collection Update Fixes Multiplayer Issues

    new master chief collection updateWhen the Master Chief Collection launched for the Xbox One, plenty of Halo fans were left devastated. Whilst 343 Industries did a spectacular job at delivering the new remastered content and graphics for the Master Chief Collection, it's online servers were plagued with problems, and most players had to week at least a week before they could play online properly.

    Even then, there will still bugs, glitches and server problems, and most of the playlists were not even implemented at this point. Fortunately, 343 Industries have slowly been rolling out new fixes and extra content for the multiplayer portion of the Master Chief Collection, and this latest patch sees some much needed tweaks to the game bundle.

    When you next get into the Master Chief Collection, a download will start for the newest update for the game. This new content patch has been focused exclusively on matchmaking online, and it's main feature adds new team balancing mechanics to the game.

    343 Industries spoke a little about the new update, saying that "while this update will improve team balance issues, we do not expect it to fully resolve uneven teams."

    As well as working on team balancing, the new update should help the matchmaking experience to be faster, smoother and ultimately more convenient for those wanting to play multiplayer online.

    Next week, another patch will be applied to the Master Chief Collection that will add even more team balancing tweaks to the game, so hopefully matchmaking will be all in working condition just in time for Christmas.

  • Halo CE 1080P Trailer Shows Off OP Pistol

    Back in the golden days of Halo Combat Evolved, the pistol was the gun to use. Yes, snipers and rocket launchers were fought for, but the overwhelming power of the pistol made it a force to be reckoned with at all times.

    A new gameplay trailer showing off the Master Chief Collection in full 1080P had a selection of Combat Evolved multiplayer, and we couldn't help but notice just how over-powered the pistol seemed to be in the gameplay shown.

    When compared to pistols of many modern shooters to today, the magnum in Halo CE was just undeniably amazing, and we're happy to see that 343 haven’t made any changes to it on the Combat Evolved portion of the Halo Master Chief Collection multiplayer.

    Another interesting thing to take from the latest trailer is that there are now achievements in all games - gameplay clearly shows players earning achievements whilst playing on CE maps, which suggests that the game has had a slight overhaul, and I must say, it looks oh-so satisfying to get a set of pistol kills in Combat Evolved.

    Halo The Master Chief Collection is set for release next month. The full release is November 14th.

    Are you going to be purchasing Halo: The Master Chief Collection? So far, all of the Halo fans I have talked to have been very excited about the Master Chief Collection, and I must admit, I’m looking forward to giving it a go myself, too.

  • PC and Xbox 360 Versions of Halo The Master Chief Collection Unlikely

    halo master chief collection xbox 360Would you be surprised if I told you that 343 Industries have no plans to introduce Halo: The Master Chief Collection to the Xbox 360 or the PC? I know I certainly wouldn't, as it seems Microsoft have found that The Master Chief Collection would be a solid way to encourage a bunch of their core fans to move over to the Xbox One platform.

    However, it's not all just about business practice - according to a blog by 343 Industries on the Halo Waypoint, the Xbox 360 just wouldn't be able to handle the Master Chief Collection. At first, that seems like an odd thing to realize, especially considering all four games in the collection were released for either the Xbox 360 or the original Xbox, but if you think about it, it makes sense.

    Halo 4 on it's own already takes two discs to play on the Xbox 360, and that doesn't include the extra included DLC maps. Throw in Halo 3, Halo 2 anniversary, which has been overhauled with brand new cutscenes, and the Halo Combat Evolved anniversary, and you'd have a collection that spans across at least four to five different discs.

    That kind of approach to the Master Chief Collection would certainly not be the kind of unified experience 343 Industries were looking for. Of course, there's always the question of why 343 can't port the collection over to the PC, but I'm sure that really does just come down to Xbox One business practice.

    The Master Chief Collection will be released for Xbox One on November 11th, 2014, alongside a brand new digital Halo series.

  • Halo: The Master Chief Collection Definite, Coming This Year

    Halo Master chief collectionA couple of weeks ago, some information about a possible Halo collection was spread around the internet, and whilst at the time it did seem quite likely, it was certainly not official at that point in time. However, Microsoft took to E3 to reveal that Halo: The Master Chief Collection is planned to be released this year for the Xbox One.

    Like previously expected, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will come with all four of the main Halo games, and will be packaged into one standalone experience. Halo 2 will take the focus and will serve as the mainframe for the whole collection, and online multiplayer will be based on Halo 2's infrastructure. This means we can expect dual wielding, elites vs spartans, and pretty much everything we knew Halo 2 to be, including the wide range of strange bugs and glitches.

    Halo 2 will also get a full HD re-texture, similarly to Combat Evolved anniversary, and players will be able to switch between old graphics and new graphics with the tap of a button.

    All campaign levels from all four games will be fully unlocked from the start, allowing players to jump in at any point they feel comfortable with, and new modes will be available that will mix and match campaign levels from all four games to create a fun and varied experience. Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be out later this year for $59.99. The game will also run at a steady 60FPS at 1080P resolution.

  • Remastered Halo Series, The Master Chief Collection Coming to Xbox One

    the master chief collection

    Whilst 343 Industries are still working on the next Halo game for the Xbox One, they have also been working on something completely unexpected that many fans of the series may be looking forward to. This something has been named Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and it will be a bundle of games that features all four previous Halo titles that follow the story of the Master Chief.

    This includes Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4. Games such as Halo ODST, and Halo Reach will not be included in the bundle. According to rumors, all four games will also be 'remastered,' probably in a similar fashion to how Halo: Combat Evolved was remastered in the recent Halo anniversary release for the Xbox 360.

    So far it's unclear how the multiplayer will work for this bundle, but it is expected that the Master Chief Collection will come with some kind of online multiplayer matchmaking. It's quite a big project to port all four games into one collection, and so far we aren't sure whether all four games will be available in one single experience, or whether they will be separate standalone titles.

    343 Industries also announced that Halo 5: Guardians will be released in 2015, however the Master Chief Collection should be released some time this year for the Xbox One. We'll probably hear more about 343’s exact plans later in June at Microsoft's E3 press conference, which really isn't all that far away now.

  • Halo: Spartan Assault Release on Xbox One

    New Titans Titanfall VGXThe top down shooter, Halo: Spartan Assault was first released on Windows Phone, but it looks as if the game will now slowly make it's way over to Microsoft consoles as well. A new announcement by Microsoft has revealed that the game will be available on the Xbox One by Christmas Eve, and will be running at 60fps and in 1080P, which really isn't anything special, considering that the game can be run on a smartphone.

     

    The game will be available on Xbox One for $15, however if you already own the Windows Phone copy (which costs $7) you'll only have to pay $5 for the Xbox One console version.

     

    So, if you are planning to purchase the Xbox One version, it makes sense to buy the Windows Phone version first to save yourself a couple bucks.

     

    The new Xbox One version will also include some new content such as a new cooperative mode that will allow players to team up over Xbox Live to fight oncoming waves of the flood. It will also include new useable weapons, and the operation Hydra expansion for free.

     

    Halo: Spartan Assault was also previously announced to be released on the Xbox 360 at the same time as the Xbox One, but it has since been delayed and the release date for the Xbox 360 version will be in January 2014.

     

    360 Players won't be able to play with Xbox One players, but the 360 version will include all of the same content as the Xbox One version and will be available at the same price point.

  • Halo 4 Toys Give Us a Sneak Peek of Halo 4

    Halo 4 Toys have revealed new Halo 4 enemies.

    An image was taken of a Halo 4 figurine. The back of the packaging revealed the name of two new Halo 4 enemies. The watcher and the crawler. While no other news has surfaced regarding these enemies we imagine E3 will give us a lot more info on Halo 4 and of these two new baddies.
    While the reveal isn't too large a spoiler since we all imagined new enemies were on the way, you can suspect that the company McFarlane Toys responsible for the Halo 4 toys will be more careful in the future.

  • Microsoft reveals more Halo 4 details.

    New Halo 4 Details

    Halo 4 comes out later this year and it's definitely one of those games that everyone in the office is excited to play.

    Microsoft recently revealed the following tidbits regarding Halo 4:

    1)Halo 4 will feature weekly multiplayer episodes with brand new original content.
    2)Halo 4 will have a unique competitive Multiplayer Mode called "War Games."
    3)The Halo 4 Limited Edition release comes with 3 map packs and is priced at $100.

    According to Microsoft the weekly multiplayer episodes will go under the title of "Spartan Ops" and will be 100% free. While the multiplayer map packs will of course cost additional Microsoft points, each map pack consists of 3 maps. So in total the limited edition comes with 9 additional maps. Definitely worth it if you know you will be playing online for months to come.

    You can expect Evil to release more Halo mods to give your copy of Halo 4 additional mileage.
