Halo Reach multiplayer will be a free add-on if you already have MCC. Reach campaign and firefight will be purchasable DLC.

Not good, it's going to split up an already small playing population.

This is brilliant news, finally I can Halo on my PC!

isnt it cross play?

Pretty excited for this, even though it'll be like my third time buying these games. Got some friends on PC who have never played it.

I just hope it has a relatively smooth launch. MCC was a mess when everyone was running the same hardware. Throw in the infinite variety of PC hardware combinations and it could be ugly again.

isnt it cross play?

So far I haven't seen details about cross play, but I would suspect not. At least for competitive multiplayer. PC just has too much of an advantage.

Campaign/forge/custom games cross play would be great, but I'm not sure if they'd bother to integrate Xbox and PC just for that.

What I mean is, the population on actual halo reach standalone is going to be split up between it and MCC. I figure a lot of people who play it online right now only have an xbox 360 and not an xbox one. So if the xbox one population flocks away from standalone halo reach and plays MCC halo reach it will have less people on both servers.

This is going to eventually kill the ability to even get a game on standalone Halo Reach. It's already pretty slow.

What would be really cool though, is if they let us finally have halo reach powers on halo 2-3 maps. If they can work something like that, then I would suddenly be a fan.

I would assume it will be a "play anywhere" title meaning that as long as you own it then you can play it on Xbox or PC. I don't think they have confirmed that yet, though.

EDIT: play anywhere only applies if you own the digital version, though.

I don't think that will be a problem. I think with backwards compatibility being around for as long as it has, very few people are playing Reach on an actual 360. If they are then it's simply time to upgrade.

Xbox 360 still has nearly twice the install base of the Xbox One. I realize most Xbox 1 owners owned 360s though. Anyway I guess I'm just sad to see them kill off one of the last of the active 360 games. Without even doing a proper remaster no less. And people are probably gonna be able to weasel their way into using mouse and keyboard on PC through some kind of cheating which will end controller-based Halo as we know it.

A gloomy take but whatever man. Halo on console/controllers isn't going anywhere.

Posted March 12th by Vandy

It won't go anywhere but it will become obsolete and k/d will suffer substantially because mouse and keyboard is objectively better. Except for me because my wrist sucks and using a mouse competitively hurts like a motherfucker. My wrist hurts so much all the time that if prosthetics ever become amazingly accurate I wouldn't mind just chopping off my arm and getting a metal hand instead.

This is great news, I wanted to play through these again without getting a new console.

"Not good, it's going to split up an already small playing population."

I'm pretty sure it'll have cross play. MS has been pushing crossplay pretty hard so it would be silly for them not to include it in their own game for their own 2 platforms.

"Anyway I guess I'm just sad to see them kill off one of the last of the active 360 games. Without even doing a proper remaster no less."

4K resolution and 60FPS is pretty good considering the original Halo Reach rand under 720p at an average of 20-25 fps. The game was already gorgeous looking textures and polygon wise so there probably wasn't that much more they could have down to improve it besides lighting and shadows.

While Halo Reach is not my favorite Halo game in the series, I do look forward to see it run in a much better framerate at true HD resolutions. I also thin the firefight mode in reach was better than the Warzone version in Halo 5.
