Surprisingly, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary edition has arrived on PC via Steam, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is also being offered at the digital distribution service. Developer 343 Industries and Xbox Games Studios did not announced anything about releasing their game on Steam, but this would surely please the Steam community.
“Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary comes to PC as the second installment of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, chronicling the rise of the legendary Master Chief.”
A brand new trailer has also release in celebration of the release:
- PC Settings/Optimizations: Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is now optimized for PC and looking better than ever at up to 4k UHD and at 60+ FPS. Other PC native settings include customizable mouse and keyboard support, ultrawide support, FOV customization, and more.

- Anniversary Features: Toggle between the remastered graphics in the Anniversary edition and the graphics from the original Halo: Combat Evolved campaign.
- Multiplayer: Continue your Halo adventure with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary’s iconic multiplayer featuring an updated progression system and over 19 unforgettable maps.
Players will need to have a PC with at least an AMD Phenom II X4 processor, or an Intel i3350, and a AMD HD 6850, NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 GPU in order to meet the minimum hardware requirements.
This unorthodox move to send a classic emblematic game from the Xbox franchise to the competition might be the eagerness of Xbox to reach the 2 billion gamers in the world. Halo is a synonymous to the Xbox franchise, and Microsoft wants to increase its brand exposure.
