Halo: Reach, Bungie's latest Halo game released on the Xbox 360 back in September 2010 is relaunching today on Xbox One and Windows PCs. Exclusives can boost storefronts-witness the success of the Epic Games Store-but Microsoft's implementation of Universal Windows Apps complicates things for mods, overlays, and other external tools. It revolves around the story of Master Chief John-117 who is a supersoldier belonging to a group codenamed as Spartans.
Microsoft says that it will continue to release the other titles in the Master Chief Collection-Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4-on PC throughout 2020. At the time of writing, the game had crossed 160k peak concurrent players and it was fourth in the list on Steam Stats.More news: The Rock opens up on painful divorce
Reach is also available via Xbox Game Pass on PC, and while we don't have player counts for that platform, Microsoft's heavy promotion of the service likely means there are quite a few players there. "This will allow you to play around with campaign and customs but not allow you to play any match made games". 343 is taking the unique needs and desires of PC players into account with the MCC's PC version, so a slower, more methodical approach to development is necessary. If you buy the collection now, Halo: Reach's Campaign and Firefight modes will be included. Don't fret if you bought the game on Steam, but your friend bought it through Xbox Game Pass on the Windows Store. Even the game didn't get the proper remaster treatment like Halo 2 did a couple of years ago, the PC version supports 4K UHD graphics and lots of customization options.More news: No Time to Die poster shows Rami Malek as villian Safin
