If you want to have a chance at participating in future flights for Halo 3 and the other Halo games being added to the Master Chief Collection, we highly recommend signing up for the Halo Insider Program. All you have to do is provide 343 Industries with some PC specs information and the permissions that allow it to send you test builds, and you may get selected to help the developer find and fix bugs by playtesting. Becoming a Halo Insider is completely free, too, so there's no reason not to sign up.

If you want to hop into Halo right now, look no further than Halo: The Master Chief Collection. It has all of the pre-Xbox One Halo shooters in one bundle at an awesome $40 price, making it an excellent purchase with a ton of value. It's available on Xbox One and PC (both Steam and the Windows 10 Store). Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4 haven't released on PC yet, but Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, and Halo 2: Anniversary are available.
