An amazing chapter in Halo history is about to appear on even more platforms and get the sort of respect it deserves. Among Microsoft’s X019 announcements was the reveal that a Halo: Reach remaster is about to touch down. Xbox One and PC owners will be able to return to Reach on December 3, 2019.
That prompt release date isn’t the only good Halo: Reach remaster news. First is that it will be an Xbox Game Pass title. While this would probably have been a given, considering how Microsoft makes the effort to have its first-party releases appear at launch on the streaming subscription service, that reassurance is always appreciated.
This comes with other pleasant news about the game. On both the Xbox One and PC, there will be multiplayer support. That means people will be able to go through modes like Firefight, Generator Defense, Headhunter, Invasion, and Stockpile. Also, while this is probably obvious to fans of the series, this is the first time the game will appearing on PCs.
Here’s the new Halo: Reach remaster trailer.
Halo: Reach originally appeared on the Xbox 360 in 2010. The Bungie-developed FPS is a prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved and follows the events on the planet Reach when the Covenant is first discovered there and before things start to go horribly wrong.
