No need to rehash the intro, let’s get right to it!
Halo: The Master Chief Collection reactions:
“Almost” you say? Of course! What kind of Halo fan would I be if I didn’t gripe about something trivial during a franchise high point?
Hyperbole aside, I’ve tried to let this announcement sink in since E3 2014 and I’ve come to the conclusion that yes, the nostalgia is strong with this one.
But I think there’s more to it then that, and you can find it in the definition of the word:
pleasure and sadness that is caused by remembering something from the past and wishing that you could experience it again
Here’s the thing: Halo: The Master Chief Collection will let you experience it again.
And not just that – your fondly remembered past just got better:
- Halo 2 Anniversary
- All the maps you remember (hello Midship!)
- Some you’ve forgotten (Colossus, I’ve missed you and didn’t even know it!)
- Remastered Halo 2 soundtrack
- New cinematics
- New terminals for Halo 2
But it’s not just your Halo past that’s getting a swift kick in the butt from the boot of awesome – your future is looking bright as well:
- “Halo: Nightfall”
- Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta access
(There were a lot of great details I left out, so head to VentureBeat for more.)
This really is a package that has it all. I was planning on waiting until Halo 5: Guardians to purchase an Xbox One, but this Collection has me budgeting a little sooner than expected …
Suit up people – the best of your past and the start of your future hits November 11th.
