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?
