343 Industries have released Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary into Halo: Master Chief Collection this week, and it's looking amazing! Xbox announced it was available in the game with Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta), Windows 10 PC, and Steam. The upgrade looks amazing and should be a welcomed hello for all Halo players over the years who remember when the first game came out. Here's a few more details as well as a trailer for the release to get you hyped about it.
In bringing The Master Chief's original adventure to the PC, we've partnered with Saber Interactive, building upon their history with the Halo franchise and their expertise developing for PC, and have continued to foster input from you, our Halo community, through the Halo Insider program. We can't wait to see the response to today's launch of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary on PC and continue sharing The Master Chief's iconic journey throughout 2020, leading up to the launch of Halo Infinite later this year.
The Master Chief's saga on PC comes equipped with new features, optimizations, and customizations built for the platform. Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary looks and plays better than ever at 60 frames-per-second (or greater) with 4K UHD support, and players can fine-tune their experience with a vast array of options including variable framerate, native mouse/keyboard support and the ability to rebind controls, support for ultra-wide displays and different aspect rations, updated texture/shadow quality and more. Additionally, we're happy to introduce community-requested features such as the option to use 'classic' audio in multiplayer and improvements to Spartan customization.
