Halo 2: Anniversary is a gloriously remastered version of the original Halo 2 (2004), initially released on Xbox One with Halo: The Master Chief Collection in 2014. Similar to Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, players can play through an enhanced version of the Halo 2 Campaign that features updated visuals and audio along with new Blur-created cinematics. Halo 2: Anniversary also includes an updated multiplayer experience featuring remasters of 7 iconic Halo 2 maps which include several different weapons and power-ups compared to the original game. Or, if you prefer to kick it oldschool, you can battle through the original Halo 2 campaign or jump into classic Halo 2 multiplayer across a total of 25 maps.

Halo: Reach Will Be Added to Master Chief Collection on December 3Jason Love

Things will be handled a little differently based on platform, so we're breaking this out from here on out.

The announcement came during the latest "Inside Xbox" episode from Microsoft and it not only revealed the new platforms, but that another Halo title would be added to the bunch: Halo: Reach (also coming to the Xbox One version). Best of all, it's not just the campaign that's being added, but the very fun "Firefight" mode, too, which originally debuted with Halo 3: ODST and has been conspicuously missing for some time. One of the things that Microsoft focused on during this announcement was how this wasn't just a port of the Xbox One version; they've spent time rebuilding the thing to provide keyboard/mouse support (including custom keybindings) and a variety of graphics options.

The update is available now and you can check out the official post on the Halo Waypoint site for all the details on what it includes (such as visual enhancements if you're on the Xbox One X, "intelligent delivery" so you can choose what to install, and faster load times), but the real highlight here is adding LAN support. This means you and your buddies can all get together with your individual TVs and Xbox Ones, connect them to a network hub, and game together without needing any Internet connection at all. Per 343, here's how you set that up:

Perhaps the biggest "fix" though is the addition of Halo 3: ODST, the entire game, available to download for free for those that purchased the game before December 19th, 2014. If you didn't purchase the game then, the content is just $4.99 to download.

The White One is available in limited quantitiies in the US later this month.  For $349 you will get a download code for the increasingly old Master Chief Collection, which has updated versions of even more increasingly old games.  At least this is a collection of classic Halo games and we gave the Chief a very impressive 4.5 out 5 as you get a whole lot of game for your money.

The Microsoft Store is clearing inventory it seems with plenty of deals on Xbox One games. We've spotted a few co-op deals you might want to consider. There might be more we missed buried, and most of the deals offer free shipping too.   Borderlands: The Handsome Collection - You'll get Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel i...

The campaign will hit sometime this May, tacking a few more gigabytes onto an already massive chunk of your hard drive.  Luckily, though, the campaign will be free to anyone who picked up the MCC on or before December 19th of last year.  Those who purchased the game after that point will be able to acquire it for an as-of-yet unspecified cost.

If we want to keep the metaphor going, the last month and a half would be the point of the movie where he's helping the town doctor save young Tommy, who he inadvertently caused to fall down a mineshaft for some reason.  By that, I mean that 343 Studios has been hard at work trying to fix the horrendous online issues plaguing the game.  Patch after patch has been released, but none seem to have the effect the developers intended.

While the game is mostly better now, 343 understands the frustration that many have felt. While we've already seen formal apologies, now the gifts are going to begin flowing.

While our team works on continual improvements and towards solutions, my commitment to you is that we will take care of all owners of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.  Our primary and continued focus is first on fixing the issues at hand.  Once we’ve done that, we will detail how we will make this right with our fans. On the matchmaking front, we have encountered unexpected issues that were not apparent in our internal test environment and that have resulted in a frustrating experience, including long matchmaking times and low session success rates.  Within 343 Industries and Xbox, I can assure you that resolving these issues is our #1 priority.

In an age where purchasing an entire game costs near $100 (if you include all of the post release DLC) it's rare to find true value for your hard earned money. And while we've seen plenty of HD remakes and re-packaging of classic titles over the years, we've rarely seen one go to the depths that Halo: The Master Chief Collection does wi...
