Microsoft didn’t forget about Halo during its E3 2014 press conference today. While the next title in this franchise isn’t due until 2015 Microsoft and 343 Industries, the developer, have been busy developing Halo: The Master Chief Collection for Xbox One. The collection will bring all four Halo games on one single disc for players on Xbox One.
The collection would certainly help players go through the entire story arc of Master Chief once again before Halo 5: Guardians launches next year. Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4 are included in the collection, which will be sold for $59.99.
Don’t think for a second that if all games are being put on a single disc some compromises will have to be made. Every gameplay mode, level and multiplayer map will be available for the aforementioned four titles, running in crisp full HD 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second.
There will be dedicated servers to manage the multiplayer component. Players will be offered the opportunity to earn up to 4,000 gamerscore, achievements have been redone to make them unique to Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Since the idea is to get Halo fans to binge on all previous titles, all levels, game modes and difficulty settings will be unlocked from the get-go. Halo 2 will also have new visual assets that inject new life into the game’s graphics.
Announced today, it will be available for the next generation console on November 11th.
