Halo developer 343 Industries has released Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary on PC through Steam, the Windows 10 Store, and through Xbox Game Pass for PC. The game costs $10 by itself, although you'll get it automatically if you buy or have bought the full Master Chief Collection bundle.
The game includes the same content that the original game for the Xbox 360 did, including a remastered Campaign that overhauls and modernizes Halo: Combat Evolved's visuals as well as Matchmaking multiplayer and Custom Games. There's a new progression system as well which makes use of the Master Chief Collection's season system. You earn experience by playing the game, and each level up gives you a point you can use to unlock the next item in the season pass (which is free to access).
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is available for $10 on Steam and the Windows 10 Store. The full Master Chief Collection is available on the same platforms for $40.
