Watch gameplay of Halo 2 on Lockout remastered and in 1080p


Destiny and Sunset Overdrive will be two fun games on your Xbox One in the near future, but Halo: The Master Chief Collection is the game that has me hyped the most. Today Microsoft revealed Lockout as the next map in Halo 2 that will be remastered. Check out this gameplay footage for some beautiful Halo action.

Don't fret over the falling ice in the gameplay video, you should know that's a game mechanic that can be turned on or off.

Here's Certain Affinity president Max Hoberman on the new Lockout:

"Lockout was hands-down the most popular small arena-style map in Halo 2. We're thrilled to be bringing this fan-favorite back, and are paying close attention to the details and subtleties that made the original great while also making a couple of very careful, very calculated enhancements. Most prominent among these are a bit of cover added to the 'Elbow,' the long walkway connecting the grav lift to the sniper tower, and a dynamic element that should help counter an entrenched group of enemies. Of course this can be disabled in Forge for players who want a near-match of the original experience."

There will be six remastered maps for the anniversary edition of Halo 2 included in The Master Chief Collection. So far we know of Ascension, Coagulation, Zanzibar and Sanctuary. The sixth has yet to be revealed, but we're wondering which Halo 2 map you'd like to see remastered?

I am pretty sure I read an article similar to this that was detailing how Midship had been remasted? So I guess that is the final map?

Awesome! I can't wait for this, so many memories with these games, brining my Xbox over to a friends to have a LAN party. Good times, good times.

I really gotta be honest, I'm not that big a multiplayer... Unless the competition is greatest deaths, then I lead anyone as far as respawns =s

That's what turned me off to Titanfall. It seems like an awesome game, but I got tired of being so bad at multiplayer that I put it down one day and never picked it back up. I think the matchmaking was poor in the beginning. I'd always get on teams that truly sucked. There should be an area/mode for people like us so we can play against others that suck.

Omg that video was f'n sick! The memories of dominating in multiplayer just came flooding back to me. I so can not wait to play this game! You all better hope you're on my team : )

They're not going to do it for the Master Chief Collection. Probably saving the Halo XB1 for Halo 5 next year.

Considering they've already done about three or four different bundles and it hasn't even been out a year, I'm pretty sure they are going to bundle this... And every other game that comes out.

I can see them bundling the game. No doubt. But I think he was referring to an actual Halo-themed-XB1 ala the Call of Duty XB1. They haven't announced one yet but I guess anything is possible.

Aha, I understand now, then I agree, I'd say halo guardians will get the unique console treatment. Hopefully they utilise Kinect in the next halo too.

You and me both. From your fingers too Microsoft's eyes. I would finance one today if it were themed, include a 1 terabyte hard drive And come with a Kinect! I also agree with you MaulerX. As much as I want one now, I think the Halo console will be when 5 drops.

Looks so beautiful. :) can't wait to play this game, I have this and Destiny Pre ordered, probably gonna get Overdrive too and Borderlands Pre Sequel.

that may be true, or not. I did factor in the other possibilities of what he/she/it could've meant, and i therefore replied to the worst assumption that i've concluded to...

I don't really care about multiplayer, but I'm excited to finally play the Halo series. And apparently the main character has a Windows Phone with Cortana.

Halo doesn't reuse the same storyline all the games are a part of the HALO storyline. The storyline is amazing and expands beyond to some really great books... This is beautiful can't wait to play..

So much win, THE best campaign of the 4 halos. I hope I can buy Halo 2 Remastered Seperately for my 360 since I already own all the other halo games .3. and I mean ALL, including an original game of the year labeled copy of Halo CE for Xbox.

So here is a question. If I never played the Halo franchise but am a COD player, is it a game worth trying to pick up? Not a fan of getting thumped so badly that the game is no fun, but willing to put in a little time and effort.

Question: Will the entire single player campaign of Halo 2 be remastered, or just multiplayer maps? I don't care much for multiplayer, but I bought the original Xbox for Halo, and I might just buy Xbox One for this collector pack.

I wish they'd do something about the one-shot-kill Jackal snipers in the Halo 2 campaign. Hated those little sods back in the day.

Still don't understand how people enjoy fps with a controller, it's horrible compared to using a mouse and keyboard. How I wish it was possible to use a mouse and keyboard for fps on the xboxOne.
