Despite being a sci-fi first-person shooter, Halo has a very polarising effect. Everyone either seems to love or hate the game that defined gaming on Xbox. Microsoft will probably never let go of their system selling franchise, and I’m 100% fine with that. I’m also entirely fine with playing through most of the Halo games again, especially after seeing this rather great launch trailer.
Halo 1, 2, 3 and 4 are all making their way to the Xbox One next week, full of enhancements, retakes and more makeovers than a reality TV nut could handle. You can see a lot of that in action in the game’s not so pre-mature launch trailer, which splices up some game footage with a host of drool-inducing cutscene flashes.
On top of the four Halo game that Master Chief starred in, The Master Chief Collection will also include the live-action series Halo: Nightfall, as well as access to the Halo 5: Guardians beta. That’s a whole lot of alien head popping bang for your buck, especially since the entire thing will retail for the regular price of a new release.
I’m mostly looking forward to playing Halo 2 for the first time, as it’s the only one in the entire franchise I haven’t touched. I’ve also been told it’s the best Halo game out there, which I’m finding hard to believe after playing Halo 4? What’s your favourite Halo game? And is it included in the Master Chief’s debut on the Xbox One?
