12 years after Halo 2 Vista, Halo is back on PC

The game has also racked up over 100 000 players, which is frankly nuts - especially if you consider that as a Microsoft game, it's part of the Game Pass for PC subscription too. You can buy it (and play it) through either Steam or the Windows Store.

Halo: Reach launched on PC yesterday, and just within the first hour of its launch players flocked to the game knocking some big names down the ladder of Steams most-played.

Microsoft says that it will continue to release the other titles in the Master Chief Collection-Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4-on PC throughout 2020. You can grab Reach over on on Steam and the Microsoft Store as a standalone for £7/€10/$10 or with the whole Collection for £30/€40/$40. For a limited time, you can get 3 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for just $1, which will give you access to Halo: MCC on both Windows 10 and Xbox One. "With Halo: Reach, players can experience the heroic story of Noble Team, a group of Spartans, who through great sacrifice and courage, saved countless lives in the face of impossible odds". The game is a bit different from other Halo games featuring Master Chief. The Halo Sticker Capsule was also added to CS:GO, making the tactical FPS all the more sci-fi. Instead, developer 343 Industries has opted for a staggered release model, publishing one game at a time in chronological order. Majority haven't been on PC previously, though, and the ones that have ran through the late, wholly unlamented Games for Windows Live, making them effectively unplayable now-if for some reason you happened to be struck with an urge to play an 18-year-old shooter.

343 Industries recommended that players back up or make copies of files they modify to simplify the transition between the modded version of the game and the original.
