A milestone. Both the game, and this release on the PC. If you want to know what all the fuss is about Halo, then Halo 2: Anniversary is in the house and ready to answer your questions.
Microsoft has been doing a swell job bringing its gaming library to the PC platform.
This newest release is part of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and up until now this remake had been exclusive to Xbox One. That all changes now, as the game has launched for PC players, no matter where they game.
From the Microsoft Store to Steam, and everything in between.
You know, things like Xbox Game Pass for PC.
Anyway, we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. Let’s talk about the game first, which arrive only a couple of months after Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary marked its appearance in the set. There are more tiles promised to complete the collection, and they are being readied.
But if you want to get your hands dirty with Halo 2, this is what you will get if you make the jump:
Halo 2 was originally released in 2004 for Xbox, and was then ported to PC in 2007. It continues the Master Chief storyline, while adding a new perspective to the mix.
This remake, however, is really well done. And comes with a range of enhancements, starting with a complete graphics and audio overhauls, as well as new cinematics, to go with a toggle to switch between the original and remake versions while playing.
Not to mention, this PC version comes with additional improvements like an uncapped frame rate, FOV adjustments, keyboard and mouse support, and a bunch more features.
If you’d like to get your hands on the full set, then Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC is now available to purchase on the Microsoft Store and Steam for $39.99. However, you also get an option to just Halo 2: Anniversary, which will run you $9.99.
Oh, and as mentioned, above, Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers also have the game available now in their library.
Great time to be alive!
