Halo is Microsoft’s crowning franchise. The shooter that they can always look to for console sales, online dominance and great reception. We aren’t getting a new Halo until next year, but The Master Chief Collection is just around the corner: there to remind us how great the franchise has already been. It’s looking extremely good while doing it.
Case and point, the launch trailer for Halo 2: Anniversary. Surprisingly, Halo 2 is the only game in the entire franchise that I haven’t played, although I do know exactly how it ends. That doesn’t matter though, because in a few weeks I, and everyone else, will be able to get my hands on the new and improved version of the game. A version which is looking super pretty.
Am I alone in wanting a Halo movie that looks as good as this launch trailer? There’s no gameplay, but instead 343 Industries has enlisted the help of Blur Studios to create this montage of cinematics from Halo 2: Anniversary. My pants are currently tighter than one time I wore skinny, hipster chinos. So, yesterday.
I’m extremely excited to relive some of the best FPS memories I have with the Master Chief Collection next month. I just wish Halo: ODST received the make-over treatment as well. Make it so 343 Industries!
