Today during the XO19 celebration in London, Microsoft dropped a launch trailer and confirmed that the PC version of Halo: Reach will be out on December 3. Additionally, for owners of MCC on Xbox, Halo: Reach unlocks tonight.
If you aren’t sure what Reach is due to the series long hiatus from PCs, Halo: Reach is the prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved, and was the fifth game in the Halo series. It’s shaping up to be good PC port, and it’ll be the first installment of the long overdue Master Chief Collection on PC. Master Chief Collection includes Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 3, the first game to be excluded from PC over a decade ago.
The PC version comes with some important updates to the 2010 original. 343 Industries says it will support 4K UHD resolutions, should run at better than 60 fps, and include native mouse and keyboard support.
It is available for pre-order on Steam for $9.99, or $39.99 for the entire collection, as well as on the Microsoft Store.
For those who already own a digital key for Master Chief Collection, Bonnie Ross confirmed at SXSW earlier this year the game will not be a “Play Anywhere” title, meaning you’ll have to buy it again.
