PC exclusive maps from Halo 1 and 2 to be added to Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Halo: The Master Chief Collection will have even more content to check out than previously thought as Microsoft's 343 Industries has revealed that all the multiplayer levels included in the PC versions of Halo 1 and 2 will be included in the upcoming Xbox One port of Halo 1-4.

That means the game collection will include nine more levels, including Timberland, Death Island, Gephyrophobia, Danger Canyon, Ice Fields and Infinity from Halo CE, and District and Uplift from Halo 2. In addition, the two exclusive weapons made for the PC version of Halo: CE, the Flamethrower and the Fuel Rod Gun, can also be used in the Xbox One port. Die hard Xbox Halo fans can choose to filter those two weapons out by selecting a "classic" weapons set.


Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which will also allow owners access to the Halo 5 multiplayer beta when it goes live in late December, is scheduled to ship on November 11. Are you happy that the PC content in Halo 1 and 2 will be in this game?

  • Halo Master Chef Collection for PC when? =P
  • Maybe after the next Gen Xbox is released and all of those Steamboxes fail.
  • Is this collection being released for PC? When??? Is this a mistake or what? Haven't seen this news before :/
  • No, they said its possible, but the console release is their first priority.
  • Oh might buy it for the fuel rod gun!
  • Awesome. Really wont be playing much else when this comes along :)
  • Great great great
  • Can't wait for this watch it get pushed
  • Hasn't this been confirmed for a really long time now? I'm curious if the Halo 2 forge they implemented is also similar to H2: Vista's map editor.
  • It has been confirmed for a really ling time, but hasn't been broadly addressed. Most articles I saw didn't indicate the PC maps were coming, but commenters to those articles pointed out that they were. Somehow most/all of the articles missed this fact around the announcement, so WPCentral is in good company.
  • The map part has been confirmed for a long time.  I don't think the weapons part was though.
  • Bloodgulch? :O
  • This'll be so awesome! Can't wait! Though schools keeping me busy sadly.
  • Anyone know if I can charge my Lumia 930 with a cable AND a wireless charger in the time?
  • Still charges at same rate. Wrong place to be asking though...
  • I'm not happy with Microsoft not bringing Halo 3 - 5 to PC, although they claimed to have a new focus on PC gaming.
  • They have a focus on selling Xbox One's more.
  • Especially halo 3.... The end of 2 seems just looks like saying "this is trial of halo. If you want play more, just buy Xbox and halo 3"
  • Once Microsoft begins to release their PC & Xbox console games on the Microsoft App Store- maybe then you'll see Halo on PC.
  • Aside from Dead Rising and Ryse coming to PC. As well as letting Minecraft stay.
  • Now if they can add Xbox exclusive parts from Halo 3, 4, 5 to PC, that would be great.
  • Yes
  • Actually Halo MCC won't have more content than expected, they announced the PC maps would be in the game back when they announced the game. They literally said EVERY map that has ever been in a Halo will be here. This isn't exactly news, but I'm sure this has slipped by a few people, so this is a good reminder.
  • Can't wait!
  • Hmm.. If I dislike MP, can I still enjoy the MCC ? (Never played Halo before, and I'm only interested in the campaign)
  • Sure can.. Not played halo 4 yet but the first 3 are really good single player games.
  • Yup. You have access to the campaigns of Halo 1, 2, 3 and 4. You can choose to play them in order, or in curated playlists. One playlist is all the ending missions of every campaign. All the missions are unlocked from the start since a lot of people will probably have already played one or multiple campaigns from the series.
  • I played the first two games on PC. I barely managed to finish the first due to the repetitivity and I never managed to finish the second one due to it being extremely boring and uninteresting with a plot that goes nowhere. They are crap. Except for the pompous music (it's trying to make the game more epic than it really is), the games are total average borefests. Can't talk about Halo 3 and 4, but the first two are a total waste of time.
  • Couldn't disagree more. Campaign co-op over split-screen makes these games amazing.
  • These games are so much fun! Have beaten all the campaigns and definitely wouldn't mind going back through them on the One. I can't wait!
  • Can't wait! They are throwing a phenomenal amount of content on the disc.
  • Bring on hang em high!!!!
  • This will be fun
  • I don't feel exclusive anymore.
  • This begs the question: when will we get a Halo game for PC?
  • Would be nicer if they allowed uploads of custom edition pc maps
  • Nice! Keep adding more value to the best bang for your gaming buck this year
  • Nice!!! Now the whole package is here
  • I can wait too! But it's hard. ;-)
  • Only a little more than 1 month!
  • Should be fun. Might tip me over the edge to finally getting the One.
  • Shouldn't they also be on the xbox!
  • Still waiting for a Limited edition Halo Xbox One like the one for COD.
  • This amazing package, just keeps getting better.  What next?  A chance to win a walkon part in the next live action Halo project?
  • So excited for Master Chief Collection. It's coming to Windows Phone too right?
  • I hope they move a few million of these. Epic collection.
