Last night, fellow Windows Central staffer Sam Sabri and I hopped online to Twitch stream Halo: The Master Chief Collection for Xbox One. We were lucky enough to play competitive matches in all six Halo 2: Anniversary maps, closing out the night with a visit to Beaver Creek, a classic map from Halo 2. See this story for videos from the stream.
Tonight, Sam and I are dishing out one last preview of the Master Chief Collection, this time by playing campaign missions from Halo 2 and 4 in online co-op! Join us at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch at 8pm Central (6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern) for a final early taste of the greatest Halo game/collection of all time.
Update: The stream is over. Congrats to the winners!
Halo: the Master Chief Collection is a collection of all four Halo games that starred the Master Chief, now remastered for Xbox One. Tonight's event focuses on two select campaign missions from the collection:
- Halo 2: Anniversary: Prophet of Regret
- Halo 4: Forerunner
Join us at 8pm Central (6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern) 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. Annoyingly, you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.
Feel free to show up a few minutes before the stream starts to help with testing. The stream should last about 90-115 minutes. And don't forget to leave a comment on this and all of our Xbox One gaming stories!
One more Halo: The Master Chief Collection stream coming next week!
If you're dying for more Master Chief Collection footage and impressions, don't miss our previous streams:
Once the game comes out, we still have more in store for you! On Tuesday the 11th, we'll have a full review of the game AND another Twitch stream. Our launch day Twitch stream is special because we'll be inviting our viewers who own the game to play with the Windows Central staff!
Join us in my channel at 8pm Central (6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern) for your chance to watch and play with Daniel Rubino, Sam Sabri, Seth Brodeur, and Paul Acevedo (me!).
Finally, regular readers and viewers know that we usually Twitch stream a downloadable game for Xbox One on Saturdays. Due to the close proximity of our Halo streams, we'll be taking this Saturday off. You guys get some gaming of your own in this weekend, and be sure to join us for next Saturday's stream on November 15th!
Check back after the stream ends to see tonight's list of prize winners.
