Halo 3 Joining Halo: The Master Chief Collection July 14
No price for adding Halo 3 to your copy of the Master Chief Collection has been listed yet
It’s time to finish the fight. Again. In 2020. Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been a fantastic way for fans of the series that have since moved on to use the PC as their gaming platform to re-experience one of the most beloved franchises in gaming, but it’s been missing one critical piece. Halo 3, the series’ swan song, has been absent from the collection, until now. The final piece of the original Halo trilogy is heading to Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC in just one week, on July 14.
What we know about the upcoming addition to Halo: The Master Chief Collection pretty much starts and ends there. Halo 3‘s addition was revealed through a Tweet on the official Halo twitter, along with a teaser trailer on Youtube. The trailer recreates the iconic opening of Halo 3, showing Master Chief barreling towards the Earth while glossing over the weapons of the game – the battle rifle and assault rifle.
While we have the date that Halo 3 will be joining the MCC, we don’t have much else. No pricing has been listed yet for the additional campaign, although on Xbox’s site other Halo campaigns are being sold individually for $9.99.
Admittedly, I don’t have Halo: The Master Chief Collection in my Steam library yet. I’ve played through the other Halo titles enough for one lifetime. But revisiting Halo 3 on PC at a higher framerate isn’t something I’ll be able to turn down. The real question here is whether or not developer 343 Industries will add Forge Mode to the game. When I was a young teen, Forge Mode and the game types that would come out of it fuelled hours upon hours of fun in the game with friends. Here’s hoping it makes a return when Halo 3 joins the remainder of Halo: The Master Chief Collection July 14.
