Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to the Windows 10 Microsoft Store and Steam, with Halo: Reach to be added soon The rumor was true, Halo developer 343 Industries has been secretly working on a PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and the anthology will be released on the Windows 10 Microsoft Store and Steam later this year. That’s pretty great news for PC gamers, as the last Halo game to be released on PC was Halo 2 back in 2007. Halo: MCC on PC will include the same content as the Xbox One game, but 343 Industries’ Brian Jarrard said today that the games will actually roll out one by one. Another great news that Jarrard announced today is that Halo: Reach, Bungie’s latest Halo game released back in 2010 on the Xbox 360 will soon be added to Halo: MCC on Xbox One and PC. On Xbox One, the multiplayer content will be free for everyone who owns Halo: MCC, but the campaign and Firefight modes will be available as a paid DLCs (all content will be available for free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers). This will be different on PC as Halo Reach will actually be the first game to be released on this platform, and the PC version will include all game content. The Master Chief’s arrival on PC will happen in stages with each title releasing one by one over time -– giving the development teams the ability to ensure each one is right,while giving players a chance to jump in right away, rather than having to wait for the entire suite of games to be completed. Our current plan is for this journey to begin with the launch of Halo: Reach – the fictional beginnings of Master Chief’s saga – with the rest of the titles following in chronological order thereafter. Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4 will each be available for individual purchase within MCC as they become available. And each game will evolve and grow over time with community input. Jarrard said today that Halo: MCC will be released on PC later this year, but didn’t share an ETA. We also don’t know if the Microsoft Store version will support Xbox Play Anywhere and cross-platform multiplayer between Windows 10 and Xbox One, but 343 Industries will likely share more details in the coming months.

software182 posted a topic in Software NewsIf you own a PC, the only current way to play "Halo: Spartan Assault" on your rig was to install Windows 8 or 8.1 and download it from the Windows Store. Next week that will change, as Microsoft's top-down sci-fi shooter finally comes to the much bigger Windows 7 PC audience, along with Windows Vista. A listing on Valve's Steam service shows that "Halo: Spartan Assault" will be released on April 4 for the price of $4.99. The description states that this version of the game will support Steam achievements, rather than the Windows 8-based Xbox Live achievements. It also won't support the two player multiplayer missions that were included in the recent Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions. Speaking of which, both of the game's console versions have now received a permanent price cut from $14.99 to $9.99 each. Also, the Halo Waypoint site has posted word that the Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 versions, which are currently priced at $6.99 each, will see a deep price reduction to just $1.99 each from April 3-9. On April 10, the price will go up again, but just to $4.99 each on a permanent basis. Source
geeteam posted a topic in Technology NewsIt would have been nice, but it remains a dream. Microsoft has issued a statement that will disappoint anyone who was looking forward to a Halo movie: there isn't going to be one. It is possible that the rumors about a possible movie stemmed from a misunderstanding about the Halo TV series which is being worked on. In a statement to Eurogamer, Microsoft said: "We have many projects in the works that offer us the opportunity to bring in new audiences to the franchise, as we did in the past with Halo Legends and Halo: Forward Unto Dawn. We plan to continue telling the Halo story through innovative channels, but there are no plans for a Halo motion picture at this time." It should not be too long until a Halo game hits Xbox One, and this is sure to be a runaway success regardless of whether movie is made or not. Source
janedoe posted a topic in Technology NewsIn an official blog post two weeks ago, Microsoft revealed that the Xbox One will get the new Halo Spartan Assault game via digital download on December 24th. The Xbox 360 will subsequently receive the same game in January of next year. Well, Microsoft has decided to roll out the game a little bit early as the game is now available for digital download for those of you on Xbox One. "Halo: Spartan Assault is a fast paced top-down shooter set during the timeline between “Halo 3” and “Halo 4,” progress your Spartan career as you engage in over 30 exciting Campaign missions using many of favorite Halo weapons, vehicles and armor abilities. Team-up on Xbox Live and fight with a friend against waves of the nightmarish Flood in the all-new online co-op multiplayer mode," the game description reads. You can head over to the Xbox Game Store to snag Halo Spartan Assault. The game runs for $14.99, but if you already purchased the game for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 before December 15th, you can snag the Xbox One version at a special discounted price of $4.99. The game comes in at 2.53 GB in size. Xbox 360 owners who have been itching to play this game will have to wait a bit longer, as Microsoft confirmed that this game wont arrive until 2014. Source
