Halo: Remastered

Ten years ago, I was reintroduced to the joys of first person shooter games by Halo: Combat Evolved. At the time, the game was revolutionary in its graphics, concept, and overall scope, but it sure looks rather dated compared to today’s offerings, like Halo: Reach.

Well, fans of the Halo franchise received some unexpected news today by way of the E3 expo. After ten years, Halo: Combat Evolved is being completely remastered. Though the game is receiving a complete visual refresh, the developers have promised that it will play and feel exactly the same as the original, and nostalgic gamers will be able to switch between the original and remastered graphics at the push of a button.

Oh yeah, there’s some news about Halo 4 too, but I’m obviously more excited about the remastered first game. Wouldn’t you be?

  1. WOW!!!!!!

    I only picked up an xbox a couple of years ago and Reach was my first ‘Halo’ game but this does look pretty damn good but why are all these games out in Novemeber (well apart from the obvious xmas push)

    Grrr more money to be spent

    1. Yeah, when I first got my Xbox, I purchased Halo: Reach and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 with it. It looks like I’ll be buying yet another Halo and Battlefield game. Time to save up. 🙂
