At RTX 2014 343 Industries finally gave a serious glimpse of the Xbox One Exclusive Halo: the Master Chief Collection in the form of a new trailer, new concept artwork and a livestream, a recording of which you can see below.
This game is going to be so amazing.....and now we will see the backstory of the arbiter...I really can't wait to play the campaigns in order...never played the campaigns always went straight to the MP.... WOW IM SO EXCITED Also....GUNGOOSE @ donnieboy I like that....lol
Same here bro. I'm so damn excited for this.ill be playing this till halo 5 arrives. Sweeeet.
Me tooo....omg....so much content so little time....I watched the forza horizon video yesterday and they said it's about 150 hrs....plus sunset overdrive open world.....I think it's safe to say I'll have a lot to play until halo 5 comes out...so amped
^^^Bro chill out, no need for that. OT, This is a huge package for $60. I got to hand it to micro for this one, this MCC with all the content & features they are putting into it.. its the best collection I've ever seen.
Holy crap this game looks great and it's a huge collection. This is going to be a system seller without a doubt. Even ignoring the already established fanbase just seeing this walkthrough would attract new comers to the Halo franchise. *tips an imaginary hat to MS* Also, this dudes voice in the trailer is just epic. He's cool in movies but he really should narrate more often.
Definitely looking forward to Halo 2 Anniversary. The collection is icing on the cake. Lol
This might be the only remastered franchise that could be a system seller, given the following halo has cultivated over the years, it'll be interesting to see how the numbers turn out. This won't do it for me as I've been halo'd out over the years, but still the value is undeniable.
Wait. You have *never played ANY of the Halo campaigns*? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU
LOL I thought that too. I never had online back in the day so campaigne is all I ever played pretty much. I think I got to test online sometime with Halo 2. This collection is by far the best collection of games I have ever seen. If I had a Xbone I would surely buy this. This makes me feel like plugging the good 'ol xbox in and firing up my Halo and Halo 2. Not enough time though as my PS3 backlog is keeping me occupied for years.... I need a day or two off from real life. I miss the times when I had time for gaming with friends and all that good stuff.....sigh.. The thing I don't get though why are people answering to troll messages with sales numbers. COD has surely sold more that Halo ever will but it pales in comparison when it comes to anything else. Please do not look down on Uncharteds and TLOU when answering to obvious TROLLS. It only makes YOU look bad mkay?
The First "collection" type game I've seen in a while that is actually worth buying or is actually giving you tons of content and not just some.
Please! We play the campaigns repeatedly Always solo 1st, then co-op. Beating both on Legendary Difficulty.
looks very juddery to me in that video was it juddery on the xbox360 ? Genuine question
God I miss Halo 2! Used to spend countless hours playing MP with my bros and sis. Looking forward! :)
Good ol Sci-Fi action in beautiful environments and priceless nostalgia I'm anxious
best remake evermade, best bundle evermade, best multiplayer pack evermade. halo = best fps on consoles all in One <3
One of the best FPS games ever conceived. I can't believe how much attention they're paying to this. It shouldn't even be called a remake, it's like a reincarnation.
This is on my I have to have list!!!
Best remaster of 2014 hands down. A true genre defining classic. The best remaster of all time. Halo 1-4. $60. Day One. No hesitation.
Lol. Calm down hahaha
Amazing that this old game is still the best online game today.. Cant wait 11/11
Probably one of the best values I've ever seen. What a great deal. Definitely picking this up day one!
Cant wait. Theres still one thing im confused about with halo 1 and 2 multiplayer, theyre talking about these 6 remastered maps for halo 2 but the thing i dont understand is so does that mean halo 1 and 2 multiplayer besides the 6 maps wont have improved graphics and only the campaigns will? If thats true thats the only downside i can see with this collection.
Do not worry, it will be added more maps remastered after the game comes out. Are only 6 because they will not have time for more until release
Is that confirmed? I was imagining them adding more remastered maps as time went by but I never heard anything about it.
No, all 100+ halo maps will be be remastered to support 1080p @ 60fps, running in their original engines... six select halo 2 maps have been completely rebuilt for xbox one, using the newest version of the halo engine.
Halo MCC, Destiny, Forza Horizon, Sunset overdrive and CoD advanced warfare(don't hate me) it's gonna be a good year! :)
That is pretty much the list of each game I want to get for the xbox this year. I have no idea how I'll play it all. So much multiplayer and campaigns all combined.
This is getting me very excited. Although, I have a ps4, I might have to get a xbox one just for halo.
I am surprised at how many are excited about this collection on N4g... I dont see this doing too well to be honest I think CoD took over xbox. When Halo5 releases I think that will do well though.
nothing will ever replace halo to the old halo players. ive been waiting for years for a game like this
You haven't looked at many forums have you. Almost the entire Halo community is jumping for joy waiting to play this.
Me thinks hitman is in desperate need of a clue….
I only ever liked halo 1 out of all the halos and i played all of them. But even i will say this a great deal/fan service for any one that likes halo. G ood on both Microsoft and 343.
We have we have Halo......Halo......(in Freddy mercury's voice) gonna be BA-Dass!!!
If this box had come out with the x1 in a bundle when it launch I'm sure the story will be different.
I'm jealous as a Sony fan. Would love to see a SOCOM collection like that.
I love the first two socoms, game demanded team work to win
X1 purchase in november for me.
already preordered :) GAME ON!!!
"I'm going to buy a X1 to play Halo 2." Something I never thought I'd ever say but damn, this is the first thing that makes me jealous over a X1.
OMG ... HALO <3
Getting it day one!!!
Im guessing with this being called the master chief collection...it will be halo 1,2,3 and 4 therefore no odst or reach?
You are correct. ODST and Reach are not included in this collection.
Yeah just Halo 1-4
I liked ODST. Reach, not as much though. MP was good in that game but it just felt, weird to me.
I dont get it, they clapped when he jumped. Is jumping really that exciting?
Slapping Beta access onto this collection tells me they don't want a repeat of halo 4 and are hoping the fans can tell them how to copy bungie's winning formula. it stinks and i don't like it. that being said i am jealous for all the halo goodness and a little bitter. at least there's destiny /sniffle
Yeah but bungie was on track to ruin halo with halo reach's gimmicks, so it was best that they moved on.
yeah. The fact that we will have beta access to halo 5 multiplayer almost a year before it comes out is amazing. They will be able to seriously change how the game plays based on player feedback. Can't wait. Preordered my copy of the master chief collection today
I feel like 343 will study which game 1-4 gets the most play and tweak Halo 5 multiplayer to match what the majority like. The MCC is an awesome fan service, and they will use it to steer Halo in the right direction. I'm excited for it. Enjoy Destiny, I'm sure it will be a blast and feel similar to Halo (not a bad thing).
I'm so ready for this game!!! Admittedly I'm not a huge fan of the idea of remaking games just for the same of remaking them, but in this case it makes a little more sense than usual. - First of all it's a collection of four games presented in a way that introduces the past story to a new character that will play a pivotal role in Halo 5...so even the idea behind WHY you're redoing it is well done. -Secondly, most of the titles are so far off that they will actually benefit from a graphical upgrade. -Thirdly Because such a huge part of why people love the Halo series is the MP, this gives fans something they have wanted for a LONG time in putting all the MP's together seamlessly into one. ...I'm actually more excited for this remake than most new games, and that's not something I say very often. I can see(hope that more games start doing this actually, or at least a few). I'd like to see Gears do this (which is highly possible and is one of the most requested items on Xbox Uservoice). I also wouldn't mind seeing Treyarch do their COD collection like this (or Sledgehammer redo IW's).
I can see the Halo Collection giving a boost to the XB1, but I'd rather see more new IP's than a whole slew of remaster games, especially COD. This gen is meant to be about innovation and gameplay, not bringing us the same game with a shiny new coat. I can appreciate the Halo Collection, and TLOU, but I personally prefer the practice be limited.
It's more of an anniversary then a remaster. These are games that have been out now for quite a while (except Halo 4) and they're doing it anyways for the fans that wanted all the Halo's for the X1 since there's no backwards compatibility. So it's not really a 'cash grab' like most think. TLoU and Tomb Raider were cash grabs though.
saying I'm excited for this would be an understatement
Dude this is sick..... The graphics are insane. Was kinda excited for this but now..... Halo 2 with friends is one of my fondest gaming memories. The birth of XBL.
I'm taking a week off so I can play 10 hours a day
Please give us a collectors edition. I will gladly pay $150 for this one! Can't wait for rockets in the face!
This would def make me wanna get a xbox one here in the next year!
Although I'm very much a Sony fan moreso than Microsoft fan you gotta admit this is the best collection of games bundled together since The Orange Box. Very great value here that I can't wait to revisit come this fall.
Dammit! even though I still own every halo ever made and my 360 I Might have to grab this for my x1
Wow... I've been reading nothing but praise for this game from both sides of the camps for this game. Minus a couple trolls. Usually pro xb1 articles are full of Sony trolls. Good to see mostly everyone agree that this bundle will be epic. Shame it can't be like that with all great exclusives that come out regardless on ps4 or xb1. With that said... MS should win back their fans, And release one Epic Master Chief Xbox One Console bundled with this game for $400. We know they can do it... Heck I saw Titanfall bundled with the xb1/kinect for as low as $400
Halo 2 online is all I care about the rest is bonus
This easily looks like the best release of 2014 hands down.
HALO FREAKING 2!!!!!!!
Halo 2 is THE best hands down
A lot of people don't know this, but in the big cave map in Halo 2, you can shoot the stalactites above to fall down. It can even kill players.
You lucky lucky bast*rds. This is an amazing deal. Well done MS for this. This will be a BIG reason (in future) for me to get a XB1 ; D
