One of the year's biggest exclusive Xbox One games launched this week: Sunset Overdrive. We went all out for it, providing an early review and hosting a multiplayer Twitch stream on launch day. We even have a review of the Sunset Overdrive white Xbox One console coming up on Thursday.
Awesome though Sunset Overdrive is, we still have one major Xbox One exclusive to look forward to in the weeks ahead: Halo: the Master Chief Collection. You can count on Windows Central for plenty of excellent Master Chief Collection coverage, including two Twitch preview events!
Our first Master Chief Collection Twitch stream starts at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch tonight at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific). Join us for a first glimpse at missions from Halo and Halo 2 running on Xbox One. We're also giving away some great prizes, so this is one stream you won't want to miss!
Update: The Stream is over. Thanks to all the cool people who joined us and congrats to the winners!
Halo: Combat Evolved
Tonight's Halo: the Master Chief Collection broadcast
Halo: the Master Chief Collection is a collection of all four Halo games that starred the Master Chief, now remastered for Xbox One. Tonight we'll be looking at two games from the collection, with the other two games featuring in tomorrow's broadcast.
Tonight's event features the following missions (and no others):
- Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary – The Silent Cartographer
- Halo 2: Anniversary – Gravemind
Join us for this stream and you can win some tasty prizes. We'll be giving out three codes for $10 of Xbox Live credit as well as a grand prize code for a 3-month Xbox Live Gold subscription.
How to view the stream and enter the contest
To enter, just follow me at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch and tune in during the stream. You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream chat to have a chance at winning. We'll deliver codes to the winners via Twitch message (PM) during the stream. No code begging!
What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Sadly you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.
I'll be available for a few minutes before and after the stream if you have any questions or just want to say hi. If you enjoy the stream, I'd love for you to tune in to future streams. For now, we'll do one every weekend, with a few non-contest streams throughout the week.
More streams to come this week and beyond
Don't forget, we'll be streaming Halo 3 and 4 missions from the Master Chief Collection on Thursday, October 30 at the same time: 8pm Central (9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific). There's plenty more fun to be had and prizes to be given out!
This Saturday, we'll also stream an indie Xbox One game called Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition. It might not be as high key as Halo, but smaller games make for great viewing while you chat with your fellow viewers. We'll be giving away Xbox One, Playstation 4, and WiiU codes, and the odds of winning are fantastic.
Join us and see why this classic game is so fondly remembered more than 20 years after its first release!
