What you need to know
- Halo: Reach is coming to Xbox One and PC natively on December 3.
- If you're planning on buying it on Steam, you won't be able to pre-load it.
- The file size isn't expected to be that big so it shouldn't be too much of a hassle.
Halo: Reach is coming to Xbox One and PC on December 3, and many gamers wanted to know if it's going to be available for pre-load on Steam. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like that's the case because 343 Industries' Tyler Davis, better known as Postums, said that it wouldn't be. You'll just have to buy it and install it on that day.

Launch is 12/3 10AM PST
🍍 is best on 🍕
Halo: Reach isn't expected to be an absolutely massive file so it shouldn't be that bad. However, it would've been nice to have the option on Steam. Are you considering buying the game on that platform? Let us know.
