During today’s Inside Xbox live stream Microsoft shared a whole plethora of news. The most pertinent bit of information was the announcement of the seminal Halo title, Halo: Reach, is coming to The Master Chief Collection.
Halo: Reach and the entirety of The Master Chief Collection will be heading to Windows Store and Steam later this year. To prevent a delayed release, developer 343 Industries will be doing a staggard release for all of the games in The Master Chief Collection. This allows 343 to get each game out in a timely manner rather than having to wait to release them all at once. Halo: Reach will kick the release off and each game will be added chronologically until all of The Master Chief Collection is available on the PC platforms. If you don’t want to buy the collection each game will be available to purchase individually.
This has been asked for by fans since The Master Chief Collection came to Xbox One in 2014. Halo: Reach is considered by many to be the best in the series as it tells a fantastic story about the fall of the planet Reach. It follows a personable squad of Spartans as they fight off the Covenant across the planet. Along with a strong single player, it also boasts some of the best multiplayer the series has to offer. This marks the first time a game in the series has been ported to the platform since Halo 2 back in 2007.
The wave-based horde mode Firefight will also be coming to the collection across all platforms but at a cost. Firefight and the Reach campaign will be packaged together for a paid option for those who don’t want to dish out the money for The Master Chief Collection.
