HaloMCC

We've rounded up all the big news in once place here to give you a quick look at all the big news announced during the Inside Xbox briefing. 343 Industries will release each game one by one so that there is less time to wait and players can jump into the Halo series on PC right away.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection was originally released in late 2014 for the Xbox One, giving gamers access to Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo: Nightfall, and as of the PC launch, Halo: Reach.

The games will also be more than just a basic PC port, according to 343 Industries' community director Brian Jarrard.

Honoring the iconic hero and his epic journey, The Master Chief's story is brought together with a total of 67 campaign missions plus more than 120 multiplayer maps (including the original Halo Combat Evolved maps) and Spartan Ops maps. The announcement confirmed months of speculation and rumors about a Halo MCC PC release and will allow PC players a chance to experience the full breadth of the franchise in one package.

"We are laying the groundwork for PC native features such as excellent mouse and keyboard controls, support for multiple resolutions and aspect ratios, field-of-view sliders, and adjustable framerates, to name but a few". The games will be released in an unusual staggered fashion, with Reach coming out first.

Backed fighters make slow advance into ISIS pocket in Syria
Bali said that "if as we advance, we notice there are civilians, we will do all we can to evacuate them from the battlefield". But beyond Baghouz, IS retains a presence in eastern Syria's vast Badia desert and sleeper cells in the northeast.

Reach's multiplayer will be included for all owners for The Master Chief Collection, while the campaign and Firefight mode will be available for purchase. The exception is for Xbox Game Pass subscribers who will get all Halo: Reach content under that plan. In addition to this, Halo: Reach would be added to Halo: The Master Chief Collection for Xbox One.

Halo Reach is also coming to Xbox One. The company has yet to say how much each game will cost.

You won't have to buy the whole collection if you just want to play certain titles, as you'll be able to buy them individually as they become available, per Xbox's post.

Also, this isn't Microsoft's first attempt at wooing the PC crowd this generation.
