Now for that PC port…
Just like that, nearly every Halo title is available through Xbox Game Pass. Today, Microsoft revealed what has been expected for many months: That Halo: The Master Chief Collectionis coming to Xbox’s monthly subscription service.
Master Chief Collectionis made up of Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4.Halo 5: Guardians, Halo Wars, Halo Wars 2, and Halo: Spartan Assaultare already available on Xbox Game Pass. Further, Halo Infinitewill be included with Game Pass the day it launches (whenever that may be). The only Halotitles omitted are Halo: ODST(which is DLC for Master Chief Collectionthat can be purchased) and Halo Reach.
The addition of Master Chief Collectiongoes into effect on September 1, and Microsoft has a handful of new enhancements to go along with it. As outlined on Xbox Wire, there’s “improved matchmaking, offline LAN, customizable installation options, and faster load times.” Also, Xbox One X gets the added bonus of 4K UHD resolution.
There’s a bit of interesting-but-tangential Game Pass news alongside the Haloannouncement. Microsoft has created an official Xbox Game Pass mobile app for finding and queuing up games. It’s in beta right now. Android users can download it here, and iOS users can register here.
