Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to Steam

Quote

Microsoft finally confirmed during tonight's Inside Xbox show that Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC—and it will include Halo: Reach, the 2010 prequel to the original Halo: Combat Evolved.

Don’t play many purely FPS games anymore but I’m excited about this. I’ve only played Halo 1 on Mac and half of Halo 3 co-op with a friend.

Mega-hyped for this as a longtime Halo fan. Only ever played Halo 1 & 2 so this will be great.

FYI, you can sign up to beta test here: https://www.halowayp...ty/halo-insider

Apparently it’s all ready to go—-they’re just waiting for enough people to sign up. Pleasantly surprised—-when they said “2019,” I figured that meant we’d get the first game in October or November.

Considering how much we PC gamers pushed for it and it took this long even though it's basically guaranteed income, I wouldn't hold my breath on a Mac version.

This is a dream come true for me, I can't wait. I've been divorcing myself from consoles as much as possible after going mainly console in '07, and between Destiny and Gears going PC, and now Halo, pretty much everything I played on console for still is now PC, or will be. Happy days.

You can do that on PC as well though. Just in 200 FPS instead of 30.

Hi mom!

I am extremely hyped for this. Halo 1 on the PowerMac G5 was all I played back in the day. CTF on Blood Gulch on the 1EV server. Literally played every day for a few hours. I am also looking forward to being able to play coop with my dad and brothers. We all played coop Halo back in the day and it'll be nice to be able to do that again.

Watch that its announced on Steam, and gains hype, then the dippopsnizzles make it Epic store exclusive only, and piss off everyone who got excited about it.

They’re using Steam for the test flights later this month, so I doubt it. And it’s certainly not leaving the MS store. Not that I’d use it.

But no marathon TC on unreal engine 4 or unity 2019? I know there was one for UT99 but still.

Got into the beta going on this weekend. The mode available for testing, Firefight, is a bit mindless, but fun for brief periods. Looked great and played flawlessly at 4K with my 970. Looking forward to the full release.
