Halo The Master Chief Collection on PC: Everything you need to know


Translation: Reach is coming first, followed by Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, ODST, and Halo 4.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection was originally released in late 2014 for the Xbox One, giving gamers access to Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo: Nightfall, and as of the PC launch, Halo: Reach. One specific game had yet to make the collection, but that's about to change when Halo: Reach releases on both PC and Xbox One.

According to the Steam listing for the MCC you'll need an Xbox Live account; this is most likely so your profile is integrated into the Halo ecosystem that now exists on console. The company made the announcements during its Inside Xbox video stream.

On PC, Reach will be the very first Halo title from Master Chief Collection to be released at some point "later this year". One title will be released at a time until this entire gathering of Halo titles is available in-full - campaign, multiplayer and co-op modes alike.

"For us it's really exciting to finally bring this saga to PC in a meaningful way, in the right way".

Xbox Game Pass holders, of course, get all of MCC content (including Reach) for free.

In order to celebrate this announcement, Microsoft has also released a new trailer dedicated to the PC version that you can find below.

Instead of controlling Master Chief, Reach had players assume the role Nobel Six of "Noble Team" and is a tragic prequel of sorts to the Halo franchise.

Halo Reach is also coming to Xbox One. With Microsoft reportedly planning on bringing its Netflix-like streaming service Project xCloud to Switch as well, it's all part of Spencer's vision for bringing the company's games for a wider audience.

With the move to PC, there will likely be many players jumping into the action whether that's new players or returning players who want to see what the game is like on PC.

"We're embarking on a journey with our community to build a PC experience that delivers on PC gamer expectations", community director Brian Jarrard said.
