For the Halo fanatics out there, the next 12 months promises to be one of – if not the – most exciting years in the franchise's history.
There's a TV series backed by Steven Spielberg, an entirely separate online live-action series called Halo: Nightfall produced by Ridley Scott, the highly anticipated launch of Halo 5 and this game – Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
This Collection is quite possibly the best-value game package available this side of Christmas. It features all four Halo games that star the iconic Master Chief – Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4.
The package features the remastered version of Halo (which was released for 360 in 2011 as Halo: CE Anniversary), and a complete remake of Halo 2 for the first time.
Players can switch between all four games' multiplayer at ease and also access the Halo 5 multiplayer beta.
