A 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.
