Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC with Reach

On Tuesday, the games' developer 343 Industries announced that Halo: The Master Chief Collection was arriving to Windows via both the Microsoft Store and Steam. But it's not just coming to the Microsoft Store - Halo is coming to Steam, as well.

On PC, Reach will be the very first Halo title from Master Chief Collection to be released at some point "later this year".

You won't have to buy the whole collection if you just want to play certain titles, as you'll be able to buy them individually as they become available, per Xbox's post.

So far, we have confirmation that the PC version will support all of the features you would expect, including higher resolutions, 21:9 ultrawide, remappable keys and various graphics options. The announcement is one of two pieces of good news - the company is also adding Halo: Reach to the MCC.

You can get a peek via the trailer above. However, on Tuesday, 343 Industries said it was also bringing Halo: Reach to the Xbox One collection as downloadable content.

While Reach probably isn't the top Halo game on many lists, the idea of eventually including every iteration in the Collection is an incredible idea. Halo: Reach will come first, then the other games will follow after an undetermined period.

At long last, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to Windows PCs.

The Halo games will be released slowly, one at a time.
This is something that the community has practically begged for, and Microsoft and 343 Industries granting them their wish should be commended. On Xbox One, the multiplayer content will be free for everyone who owns Halo: MCC, but the campaign and Firefight modes will be available as a paid DLCs (all content will be available for free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers). It contains Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, and arguably the greatest Halo game ever, Halo 3: ODST. Additionally, Halo: Reach is also being added to the MCC on Xbox One, and will receive support for 4K HDR and 60 frames per second (FPS) gameplay.
