Playing Halo Will Turn Back the Clock for PC and Xbox Gamers

Hi guys! I want to introduce to you one of my most frequently played games, Halo on PC. Halo was originally an Xbox game (which I played as a child), but since the release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, I have been playing the game on PC. Halo: Master Chief Collection includes 6 great Halo experiences. Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4. I will mainly be focusing on the Master Chief Collection in this article!

Halo changed the way 1st person shooters were made when it was released with the Xbox back in 2001, with a wide range of tactical weapons and methods introduced. Halo: The Master Chief Collection, available on Steam, is now optimised for PC and looking better than ever at up to 4K UHD and at 60+ FPS. The Master Chief Collection offers players their own exciting journey through the epic saga. Starting with the incredible bravery of Noble Six in Halo: Reach and ending with the rise of a new enemy in Halo 4, the Master Chief’s saga totals 67 campaign missions over six critically-acclaimed titles.

In my opinion, the best Halo PC game in the whole collection is Halo 3. Firstly it brings back my childhood memories as I remember playing it with my cousins. Halo 3 bought something innovative and new to the table. It was the forge and custom game modes that players could use to create content for personal use, but as the game grew and players got more and more creative, Bungie started implementing the player created content into the multiplayer matchmaking and breathed new life into the game.

On the note of multiplayer, I love that the game is multiplayer and I can play it with my friends on PC. We would spend hours clearing missions and checkpoints. What’s cool is that we can even use ‘skulls’ to customise each game. Skulls are gameplay modifiers. Of course, my favourite skull is the Grunt Birthday Party Skull, where Killing Grunts with a headshot causes an explosion of confetti, which can damage nearby enemies.

Each of the six games in The Master Chief Collection brings its own multiplayer maps, modes and game types. There are more than 120 multiplayer maps and countless ways to play with community-created Forge content. The Collection has the most diverse and expansive Halo multiplayer experience to date. On my PC, I still occasionally use my controllers instead of my keyboard and mouse, bringing back all my childhood memories.

On technical specifications, playing the Master Chief Collection on PC requires a 64-bit processor and operating system and at least 43GB free space. The whole Halo: Master Chief Collection is available to purchase and download on Steam for S$49.99, or individually at S$15.00.
