Microsoft has announced that Halo 3 will be arriving on PC via The Master Chief Collection from July 14. Today, via Youtube, an official Master Chief Collection trailer promoting Halo 3’s release premiered, as seen below.
The game has been optimized specially for PC, including 4k UHD and 60fps support. Furthermore, there’ll be customizable support for mouse and keyboards, ultra-wide support, and FOV customization.
Halo 3 was released on Xbox 360 back in 2007, some thirteen years ago. For those who remember the original fondly, they’ll be able to reminisce with all 11 missions in this new reimagined version for PC.
As for multiplayer, players can look forward to exploring 24 individual maps, and an advanced progression system from Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Also included are Forge and Theatre.
The complete Master Chief Collection on PC will include six games. Four of these are currently available: Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, and Halo 2: Anniversary. As for the final three, Halo 3 now has a release date, whereas Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4 are due for the end of 2020.
A recent Reddit post appeared to spoil a key plot point from the forthcoming Halo Infinite. An image from the Mega Construx Halo webpage appeared to show a figurine (apparently Hyperious), sporting an axe and Jameson Locke’s helmet on one shoulder.
The community director at 343, Brian Jarrard, clarified via Twitter that the image was in fact not a spoiler. In his statement, he confirmed that all “products appearing now are all expected and part of the road map.”
He added: “We wouldn’t intentionally spoil key game details so don’t read too much into anything. Not every collectible is a literal tie-in to the game.”
The Xbox Series X is expected during the 2020 holiday season, and Microsoft intends to release Halo Infinite at the same time. The game is in further development for Xbox One and PC.
