Yesterday, we discovered that Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition could be released soon in the PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. But we didn’t expect “soon” to mean “the day after.” Still, the remastering of the original Halo is now, in a surprising release, available on Steam, the Microsoft Store and Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Game Pass subscribers and Halo: The Master Chief Collection owners now have access to the game.
You can also buy it as a standalone title for $ 10, the same price as Halo: Reach, which was the first remastered game in the collection to be available in December 2019. Since then, the PC edition of the Halo collection: The Master Chief Collection consisted only of Reach, and players looked forward to the remaining games, which will be added piece by piece. Halo 2: Birthday, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4 are still coming to the collection.

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition is the first time since 2003 that Master Chief’s inaugural adventure comes to PC games. This version updates the original Halo campaign with the performance expected from modern table games. It supports high frame rates (60+) and variable frame rates. If your computer can handle it, it will also work with 4K Ultra HD resolution and ultra-wide proportions. It is complemented with updated textures and shadows.
The game also features native keyboard and mouse support and a customizable field of view. This will help PC players feel at home with their controls while immersing themselves in the original campaign or competing online with other players on the many classic PvP cards.
