For fans of Xbox’s favourite franchise, the X019 announcement that Halo: Reach will be making its way to PC via Game Pass complete with updated visuals and 4K support was one worth celebrating.
First released back in 2010 for the Xbox 360, Halo: Reach was and still is by some considered to be the high point of the franchise and was a prequel to the original Halo: Combat Evolved.
This was also the last game developed by Bungie, so it holds a special place amongst many fans hearts.
I personally have Xbox Game Pass for my Xbox One and at first, I was certainly a skeptic. One monthly fee for access to over 100 titles? They had my curiosity, but after using Gamepass for a while now they have my attention.
The service works much like Netflix for video games (except you download the titles to your console as opposed to streaming) and there are some truly stellar titles available, and now that we will be getting even more Halo games it is certainly worth a look for anyone that was on the fence.
Not only that, but several other new games coming to the service were also revealed. Some highlights include games available right now such as Rage 2 (console & PC), Remnant: From the Ashes (console) and Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition (PC), — and –, while there are some great games to look forward to in the coming months including almost every game from the Final Fantasy franchise, Yakuza franchise and Darksiders 3, The Witcher 3 and honestly heaps more. Check out the full list right here.
If you haven‘t tried Xbox Game Pass Ultimate yet, Xbox currently will give your first 3 months for just $1.
Halo: Reach will be available from December 3rd as part of The Master Chief Collection via Xbox Game Pass for both Xbox One and PC (through Steam as well).
Will you be revisiting this classic title, or are you excited for some of the others? Either way, it’s becoming more and more difficult to deny the incredible value in Xbox Game Pass.
