If you can't wait for The Master Chief Collection to come to PCs and you happen to have an Xbox One, it's now available on Xbox Game Pass for just £7.99 or $9.99 a month. It is named the "Halo Insider Program", and, as Microsoft describes it, fans will have a new way of working alongside developers from 343 Industries to improve new Halo releases by merely testing them before they are launched.
Following the announcement of Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC, many wondered if the title would be included in the Xbox Play Anywhere program.
At the Halo Invitational finals at SXSW over the weekend, community manager Brian "Ske7ch" Jarrard revealed that the first test will be starting "sooner than people realise". If you want to sign up to be an Insider, you can do so here.
First of all, we learned that the PC version won't support cross play with Xbox One at launch. Want to discuss a possible story?
But he did share some helpful insight into a number of other topics players asked about on Reddit today. And I think there's two different discussions there. That being said, Ross teased that those who buy it twice may get some bonuses.
Microsoft says the collection will be released in stages.
As for the cross between the PC and the Xbox. The same makes the gamers love the game more every time they play it. But right now, we really need to focus on getting these PC products out the right way. Whether it's for console or PC. When Halo Reach launched back in 2010, it expanded on the Halo sandbox mode Forge, which allowed players to build their own maps and in turn create their own custom game types. "Mid mission saves will be unique to each platform and can not be shared", the team explained. This replaces the previous preview program for the MCC present on Xbox One.
"Xbox Game Pass subscribers will have access to the entirety of Halo: Reach within MCC as part of their subscription".
"While MCC shipped before the XPA Play Anywhere, we are exploring ways to make sure that we show our appreciation and recognition for the support we've had from the unbelievable fans on MCC and we'll have more to announce as we get closer to launch". But the "will have more to tell" team is closer to the release of the collection. "Flighting will be critical to help us get these titles to a great place and depending on how that goes, it could lengthen or extend the release cadence".
