Master Chief Collection is coming to PC and Steam

First released for Xbox One in November 2014, Halo: The Master Chief Collection now includes Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4. In other news, we've just received word that Hell is starting to look a little frosty today. PC gamers will be able to get their hands on the collection via Steam and the Microsoft Store, but there's a catch that might disappoint some players. One specific game had yet to make the collection, but that's about to change when Halo: Reach releases on both PC and Xbox One.

Microsoft and 343 have yet to reveal when The Master Chief Collection will land on PC or when Reach will be added, but they promised that more information will be divulged down the road. We also don't know if the Microsoft Store version will support Xbox Play Anywhere and cross-platform multiplayer between Windows 10 and Xbox One, but 343 Industries will likely share more details in the coming months. With the latter poaching indie games - and a few big names - left and right, I wouldn't blame a few Valve employees if they breathed a sigh of relief that Halo went to them. Halo: Combat Evolved was released on PC a short while after the original Xbox, while Halo 2 was a Windows Vista exclusive - but beyond that the series has always skipped PC. Anyone who owns MCC will get the multiplayer content (including Forge and Theater) for free, but you'll have to pay for a "premium digital add-on" to get its central storyline and Firefight.

Kyle Kuzma , the Lakers' second-leading scorer with 18.8 points per game, also is out this week with a sprained ankle. The Lakers (30-36) have a month left to play in the regular season and sit seven games out of a playoff spot.

It was also noted that the Master Chief collection will not be arriving all at once on PC, but instead will take a slower approach and debut in installments. Microsoft is releasing each title within the package individually for download and purchase, beginning with Halo: Reach. The company has yet to say how much each game will cost.

"The team is passionately committed to ensuring that all of the features, bells, and whistles expected in a modern PC title are included", Microsoft added. MLG has also shown an inkling of interest in Halo esports on PC.
