If a new trailer, gameplay and concept art for Halo: The Master Chief Collection aren’t enough for you, YouTube user 0iah recorded the whole panel for your perusual.

The video includes a through overview of the game’s menus, including the control settings, that can be deeply customized separately for each game of the collection.

We also get some details on the improvements to Halo 2: Anniversary.

Modernization means taking advantage of things available now that simply weren’t ten years ago, like improved spawns, more robust feedback system and more power to customize games.

The assault rifle wasn’t in the multiplayer game, so they added it in the Director’s Cut alongside other weapons, since there was a lack of mid-range weapon options. The Magnum also has been tuned, meaning that the damage has been upped a little bit, and it “worked out really well.”

The Mongoose and Gungoose (which is basically a Mongoose with guns) have been added, and some additional vehicles that will be talked about at a later date. The Gungoose will be central to a completely new mode named Gungoose Capture the Flag.
