In a massive surprise Microsoft have revealed that not only is there going to be a Halo 5 beta in December but that you are going to be able to buy what is being dubbed, The Master Chief Collection, in November this year.
The Master Chief Collection is going to include all of the previous Halo games on one disc in one seamless experience.
Yes that means you are going to get Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4’s single player campaigns to play through all on a single disc.
But that’s not all, the games have all been touched up to make them look up to date but if you can prefer you can instantly swap to view them as they were in the classic view or experience them in the 60 frames per second, 1080p resolution that the Xbox One can now support them in.
The game is also shipping with what I think is a brand new record for a gamerscore for one game, and that is 4000 gamerscore points for the collection.
And yet it goes on, even if you aren’t a single player fan then you are still going to want this as the collection will release with every single multiplayer map that was ever released for the Halo franchise.
That’s over 100 multiplayer maps which are all running at 1080p and 60 fps on dedicated worldwide servers.
Say what you want but that is some incredible fan dedication.
And above all else, as mentioned earlier, buying this Master Chief Collection will give you entry into the Halo 5 beta which any real fan would give his left… wallet for.
