Very melancholy and, especially because those missions had some of the best tracks in the series. Easily the best part of any Halo campaign, in my humble opinion.



Never forget.

yup the vistas in high charity were crazy on the og xbox.

As unlikely as this is, I'm also hoping for something like this. The small number of remastered maps is the only thing that's keeping my hype from killing me.

Superior Sword Base is back in CE. Then again, maybe it would actually play better with faster mechanics like CE's. Many of the maps in H3-Reach would have been great maps if they were in earlier games.

Well looks like I'm buying an Xbox one this November.


It would be cool if they ported over ODST as DLC.

I would definitely buy that!

I'm a little sad that we're not getting a remastered version of Halo 3 since that's my favorite game in the series, but really, I shouldn't complain with everything we're getting. 60fps though, can't wait to play it.

I have such a weird relationship with MS and Halo. I have a personal preference for Sony's systems overall...but I've always had personal love for Halo specifically. And not even the multiplayer (with the exception of CE on the PC), it's the single-player campaigns I enjoy - especially co-op. Nothing from's Sony's camp has managed to give me the same amount of enjoyment; not Killzone, Resistance, etc.

Basically what I'm saying is this collection will likely be the thing that convinces me to get an X1.

There has been a twitter post saying that there will be a way to play competitive multiplayer matchmaking for your specific game. The pictures in the OP say differently though.

whats gonna be the deal with splitscreen? Can we still matchmake with guests?

I know i may be in the minority, but i loved splitscreen halo online with a buddy. 2-4 friends being able to go across all multiplayers would be a big thing for me.

I'm really happy with what they're doing. This is how you show fans you're listening. AND no armor abilities in Halo 5 means that glimmer of hope remains that they will abandon Halo 4's every-gametype-is-fiesta randomness mentality. Just need to hear ordinance drops are either removed altogether or completely rethought and reworked and we'll be peachy. (Please 343, nothing compares to just having the weapons spawn on the map. It's part of Halo's dynamic gameplay for map control)

You are not in the minority. Halo was made for split-screen. Everything that was there from the original will be there with the exception of system link (possibly)

I've been wanting online Halo: Combat Evolved (on a console) for a decade now.

So glad. Now all I have to do is try and get my friends and brother to all play at the same time so it can be like how it was before we all moved away from each other.

343 just posted in a blog post that Tombstone and Desolation WILL be included in the Halo 2 Port (not Anniversary.)

Previously, we’d told you Tombstone and Desolation were not included, but the good news is that those are going to be in the game along with their counterparts, Hang ‘Em High and Derelict. Basically, every single multiplayer map from Halo 1-4 is included in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

So even local campaign support???

Ohhhhh budddddy.

This just worried me:

Dan: We're gonna have [online co-op] in particular for 2, 3 and 4. We're gonna have those across the board which is going to be a tremendous amount of fun. Similar for Forge as well. You're gonna be able to Forge on 2, 3 and 4.
Frank O'Connor: (from GAF): Only in the new h2 anniversary mp mode. But yes.

the addition of the 'online' made me thing it was holding back local or something.

Weekends with friends are going to be just looooost to this game.
