  • Halo 5 Guardians

In addition to the main collection, which includes Halos 1-4 and Halo 3: ODST, the company also threw in Halo: Reach.

We've rounded up all the big news in once place here to give you a quick look at all the big news announced during the Inside Xbox briefing.

The software giant and creator of the Xbox video game console said Tuesday that the popular sci-fi shooting game will come via Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which rereleased numerous original games from the series on the Xbox in 2014. You'll be able to buy, download, and play each Halo game on both the Microsoft Store and on Steam, which allows players to choose their preferred platform.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection will see each individual game rolled out one at a time instead of releasing all at once.

According to the Steam listing for the MCC you'll need an Xbox Live account; this is most likely so your profile is integrated into the Halo ecosystem that now exists on console.

Reach, meanwhile, will be the first Halo game made available on PC, with the rest of the Halo catalogue patched in afterwards in chronological order.

In order to celebrate this announcement, Microsoft has also released a new trailer dedicated to the PC version that you can find below. You can nearly hear the fans beckoning for 60FPS and 4K/HDR support, which the post promised for Halo: Reach on Xbox One.

The staggered release is meant to ensure that each title is "right" without forcing players to wait until the whole collection is ready, 343's Brian Jarrard said. On Xbox One, the campaign and Firefight modes will be a premium add-on while multiplayer will be free. "Xbox Game Pass subscribers will have access to the entirety of Halo: Reach within MCC as part of their subscription". As such, they've enlisted the help of external studios Splash Damage and Ruffian to help bring MCC over to PC. Through the Xbox Play Anywhere program, several titles such as Quantum Break, Sea of Thieves, and Gears of War 4 have graced Windows 10 PCs via the Microsoft Store with varying degrees of success.
