The Next Halo Title is an Arcade On-Rails ShooterJason Love

The game is set around the time of the original Halo: Combat Evolved and puts you in the boots of an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper (ODST). Along with Master Chief and the rest of the UNSC, you'll be fighting Covenant forces on the "Alpha Halo" ring. As far as the action itself goes, it looks like it'll be a pretty straightforward on-rails shooter in the same vein as titles like Area 51 or Time Crisis.

The title was originally released as part of the "Xbox Play Anywhere" program, which meant that if you picked it up for the Xbox One or Windows 10, you automatically could play it on the other platform at no additional charge. While many of these titles also supported cross-platform play, curiously, Halo Wars 2 did not. That oversight will be corrected once the new update arrives sometime before the end of October (no specific date was given).

First up, Halo 3. Originally launched in 2007, it was the first installment from the Halo series to make it to the fairly new Xbox 360 (which originally came out in ‘05). The game featured the aspects that players had grown to love but with the new hardware and Xbox LIVE becoming easier to jump into on the new console, this game was a must have from the start. It marked the end of Master Chief’s (initial) trilogy, but also the start of Halo games being known for pushing graphics, gameplay and online firefights to the limit.

The way Xbox Game Pass works is that for a monthly subscription fee ($9.99) you are free to download/play any of the titles available via the program. If you let your subscription expire, you will no longer be able to play the games (unless you already own them, that is) until you renew your subscription. You find out more on the official site, which also includes a list of all title available (there's also this hand searchable list on Eurogamer).

The expansion, titled "Awakening the Nightmare," will shift the campaign over to Atriox and his Banished forces as they fight off everybody's favorite Halo enemy: the Flood. From an overall story perspective, these events take place a few months after the conclusion of the main campaign as the Banished are now desperate to take control of the Ark. I get that desperate times call for desperate measures, but unleashing some zombie plants doesn't seem all that smart.
