As expected, Halo was in action at E3 2014 during the Microsoft press conference. But while you might have been expecting the next game in the series, Halo 5: Guardians, it was instead the announcement of a new collection called Halo: The Master Chief Collection that took the spotlight.
The collection will include the original game, Halo: Combat Evolved. It will include Halo 2, which is getting the 10-year anniversary HD makeover treatment. It will include Halo 3 and Halo 4. It will include all multiplayer maps and levels, and everything will be unlocked from the start if you wish to jump right to a certain chapter from the get-go. And it will include a live-action series produced by Ridley Scott titled Halo: Nightfall. All on one disc; all running at 1080p and 60 fps; and all for the single-game price of $59.99. A pretty incredible deal if you’re a Halo junkie.
