Halo: Reach is coming to Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One and PC, and now Microsoft has shared the first image of what the game looks like from the main menu. Microsoft shared a work-in-progress version of Reach in the campaign section of MCC on Xbox One. As you can see, it’s left of Halo: CE, as it’s a prequel to that game.
Halo: Reach is expected to come to both Xbox One and PC later this month through its first «flight» AKA beta test. To get in to the test, you need to register to become a Halo Insider, which you can do here. For PC, you’ll need to upload your DxDiag and link your Steam ID.
The number of people who signed up already «blew away» Microsoft’s expectations, the company said, so it further warns that it «simply cannot accomodate everyone.»
On PC, each title within the Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be sold individually, but the «flights» are free, if you get in. And in a big change for the series, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be available through Steam.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection originally launched in November 2014 for Xbox One. It faced serious and significant server issues at launch that made the title basically unplayable for some. Microsoft improved the experience significantly over time, and today the title is mostly stable and highly populated with players thanks in part to its inclusion with Xbox Game Pass.
