Halo: Combat Evolved is now available on PC.
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary launched on Tuesday. The game is available on PC through Steam, the Microsoft Store, and Xbox Games Pass for PC. The game follows Halo: Reach, which released on PC last year as part of the Master Chief Collection. Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is a remastered version of the original shooter. The game allows players to switch between the game's classic graphics and the fully enhanced version. The game will run at 60 fps, and will have 4K UHD support, control rebinding, native mouse and keyboard, new features, optimizations, and customizations for PC.
Combat Evolved Anniversary will also feature improvements to Spartan customization. Microsoft also stated that it has introduced community-requested features, such as the option to use the game's classic audio in multiplayer. There will also be updates to the game's matchmaking options, as well as a number of improvements and bug fixes. Players will also find an update to Halo: Reach's matchmaking as well.
Combat Evolved Anniversary will be available as part of the Xbox Games Pass on PC. It can be purchased as part of the Master Chief Collection for $39.99 on Steam and the Microsoft Store. The game can be purchased on its own for $9.99, just like Halo: Reach. The rest of the games in the Master Chief Collection, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4 are all expected to release before the end of the year. All of these titles can be purchased separately for $9.99 when they release, except for ODST, which will retail $4.99.
The latest Halo title, Halo Infinite, is expected to release sometime this year. The game will launch for PC, Xbox One, and the upcoming Xbox Series X. With the launch of the Series X getting closer, we may hear more about the upcoming title soon.
