Written by: / / 2 Comments

After a raft of (very accurate) rumours and reports, Microsoft and 343 Industries have today announced Halo: The Master Chief Collection, a compendium of games including Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4, complete with the multiplayer maps and modes ‘that you remember,’ all presented in 1080p running at 60 frames per second on Xbox One.

Here’s the blurb straight from the teams:

“For the first time ever, The Master Chief’s entire story is on one console. Featuring a re-mastered Halo 2: Anniversary, along with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4, new digital series, Halo: Nightfall, and access to the Halo 5: Guardians Beta, this is the definitive Halo experience.

“To launch the Halo: The Master Chief Collection at E3, Xbox and developer 343 Industries recreated one of the most iconic moments in the newly re-mastered Halo 2, with a twist by revealing that what the audience is seeing is a holographic projection that is being watched by a new and pivotal character in the Halo universe: Agent Locke.

“The more Locke studies Master Chief, the more the audience gets glimpses of Locke, and the dynamic between the characters is gradually revealed, a dynamic that will play out in the soon to be released Halo 5: Guardians.”

Agent Locke? So that’s who is on the cover of Halo 5
