Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC and Steam

If you're one of the PC gaming elite and have always been a little jealous that you were not able to play Halo, a revolutionary game some say, you can now drop that greenish complexion and celebrate that Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC and will also be releasing on steam.

I read the article earlier today and I’m extremely excited about it. I only ever got to play Halo 3 on XBOX 360 and absolutely loved the campaign and the bit of multiplayer I got to play. I’ll gladly play through the whole saga in order.

Just a note on the post’s body - the bullets seem to be messed up, as it’s showing both bullets and numbers, with all of them showing number “1”.

That’s actually pretty awesome, I always wanted to play the campaign, could only ever play the first one, and I enjoyed it.

I want to try it as well.

Very good news indeed. I think this is going to be huge for Microsoft and the Halo franchise in general. Anyone that hasn’t played Halo yet, most definitely have to get this. It is one of the very best FPS franchises there is.

Also, the memes have been on point:

Poor Epic Store.

I see on the Steam page that the game requires an Xbox Live account. I wonder if a Gold sub will be needed for the multiplayer?

No according to reports, you do not need it. You can only get a free Xbox Live account to play multiplayer.

halo 2 anniversary looks the best since its graphics engine was built for the xbox one, halo 4 is another great looking title, it was a 360 game but it looks damn amazing.

halo 1 anniversary and halo 3 looks okay ish in my opinion, doesnt have the same wow factor it had when it came out

Halo: Reach private testing on PC was supposed to start sometime in April, but…

The downside is that the Win10/Steam release of Reach probably won’t be made by the end of May as was originally hoped. The upside is that you are still able to join the Halo Insider Program and may be considered for that delayed public testing for Reach, and future MCC PC releases.

The Halo Insider Program is the new way Halo fans and community members can partner with 343 Industries to improve our games, products, and services. As a Halo Insider, you’ll have the opportunity to regularly provide feedback and insights that help shape and inform current franchise initiatives and the future of Halo. You will also be given exclusive opportunities to participate in public flights of in-progress Halo game releases and provide feedback to the development teams.

You can opt in for either or both console and PC public flighting. Don’t know about console (I opted out of that one) but the only PC flighting available at the moment is for Halo: Reach, which is being done through Steam. (Although the game and the rest of the MCC will be available through both Steam and the Win10 Store, all pre-release testing will happen through Steam.)

In addition to accepting a pretty strict, but fairly standard, NDA/Confidentiality note, you’ll need to sign-up with a Microsoft Account from the PC that you want to use to test the game on, be prepared to run and submit a DXDiag report from that machine when you apply, and connect your Steam account to your application.

On PC, we’re excited to confirm that each game within MCC will be included with an Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription as they become available.

In addition, each title can be purchased individually – Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4 will be offered at $9.99 on both the Microsoft Store and Steam while Halo 3: ODST within MCC (with a current scope of Campaign only), will be available for $4.99. Players will have flexibility to purchase any or all the games at any point along the way as they become available.
