Today on Inside Xbox, it was revealed that Halo: The Master Chief Collection (MCC) (Halo: MCC) is making its way to PC, thanks to the efforts of 343 Industries and its partners, Splash Damage and Ruffian Games. The game will arrive on PC via the Microsoft Store and the competing Steam platform, and will be optimized for PC with enhancements and tweaks.

The JeM had taken the responsibility of the attack in the view of which tensions between India and Pakistan flared up. New Delhi has heavily criticised Islamabad's failure to rein in militant groups operating on Pakistani soil.


According to the Steam listing for the MCC you'll need an Xbox Live account; this is most likely so your profile is integrated into the Halo ecosystem that now exists on console. "We're not only going to be true to the base games, but add in PC features like mouse and key board controls, FOV sliders, Ultrawide resolution, remappable keybindings", 343i's Brian Jarrard today said. It'll be available on Xbox One and the newly announced PC edition. Each game will be available for individual purchase.

Nintendo says they use "basic VR technology to create a simple and shareable virtual reality experience for kids and families". That kit goes on sale 12 April and will cost $40; no word on United Kingdom availability and yet.


The games will start dropping one by one later this year, so that the development teams can faithfully transfer each title to the PC and let gamers begin enjoying them right away. On Xbox One, the multiplayer (including Forge and Theatre) is free, while Microsoft will charge for the campaign and Firefight mode-pricing has yet to be divulged. Xbox Gamepass subscribers will get the full remastered Reach package for free. According to Microsoft, the bundle will release in stages for PC in order to give developers time to bring each title to desktop without forcing players to wait for the entire batch to reach completion. Additionally, Halo: Reach is also being added to the MCC on Xbox One, and will receive support for 4K HDR and 60 frames per second (FPS) gameplay. Through the Xbox Play Anywhere program, several titles such as Quantum Break, Sea of Thieves, and Gears of War 4 have graced Windows 10 PCs via the Microsoft Store with varying degrees of success. The less said about the non-event of Halo 5's multiplayer launch on PC (nobody even remembers it), the better.
