Halo: Combat Evolved remake coming to Xbox 360

A high-definition remake of the original Xbox launch title Halo: Combat Evolved has been confirmed for a release this November, sources close to Joystiq have revealed. With Bungie out of the Halo picture, Microsoft has passed the torch onto Saber Interactive, the team responsible for TimeShift, while 343 Industries will be overseeing development.

Combat Evolved will be more than a resolution bump - art assets will be completely redone, though the original audio is apparently remaining intact. Boasting a resolution of 1080p and support for the latest wave of 3D televisions, the remake is sure to shine on the latest home entertainment setups, but with backwards compatibility working fine with the original game on Xbox 360, it might be a harder sell to the more casual fan that's satisfied with their copy.

In terms of gameplay, little has been confirmed so far, but online co-op will be making its way to the final version, as well as more recent control configurations from newer Halo games. To satisfy fans of the original, it's doubtful that we'll see any radical gameplay changes. Considering the fact that the original holds a score of 97 on Metacritic, any changes to the critically-acclaimed gameplay formula would have to be minor to avoid any backlash from the community.

The remake of Halo: Combat Evolved is expected to launch November 15th of this year, ten years after the original.

With Microsoft as publishers... highly unlikely.

Yeah I know, but they advertised the new PSP (NGP or something?) on the XBox 360 dashboard the other day, so one can always hope, lol.

I don't own a 360, but if I did I would consider picking it up. I would love to be able to play the original Halo MP online.

About damn time. I can wait several months after the release and buy it used for $20. Hell, I waited this long. The first Halo was the best Halo IMO.

jasonon said,
who needs this? the classic is always the best. wouldn't people rather just buy halo reach?

I may be interpreting you wrong, but it sounds like you didn't buy Reach.

To put it simply, Reach was kind of bad. Take Halo 3, remove characters with any depth, and you have Reach. The storyline was a bunch of spartans you saw individually in one or two levels before they got killed off in their own heroic (or not, see: Kat) way. I really don't remember much of anything about Jun other than he was there for that nighttime sniper mission.

As for multiplayer, it was cool to use jet packs and forge for a while, but I eventually just found it to be the exact same thing every time. The only objective is to grind away for credits to spend on armor no one really looks at. It was just repetitive, and once you've done it x amount of times... I dunno, I guess it just got too over-hyped and ended up being too much of a disappointment for me.

CE, on the other hand, built it's own reputation. Which I guess could make all the difference.

I find it pretty funny that some people posting in this thread seem to have the notion that their sarcasm is engaging and playfull and that their opinion (no matter how mis-informed or misguided that opinion is) is superior or of higher value than anyone else's opinion.

This clearly shows a lack of respect of other people in general, and especially to those that have differrring opinions than theirs.

The other possibility is that some of these disrespectfull persons are nothing more than trolls, and as such deserve even less respect for those that they have for the preople they are trolling.

The trolling going on in many of the threads here these days has actually reduced my activity on Neowin's forums. Things like civilty and courteousness have gone out-the-window "just for the lulz".

As for the re-release of H:CEl; with up-to-date graphics & rendering to exploit the 360's hardware would be a nice treat, and adding Co-op and HaloCE would add a new dimmension to gameplay, and IMHO would be even more fun than the original release...and yes, that's my opinion and it's just as valid as everyone else's opinions.

Halo CE online Co-Op, I'm sold. Halo CE had the best story mode by far, because that's all they had going, no Xbox Live.

Agreed. The CE storyline was the best told out of any of them, probably because it was the first, lol.

I hate the new control schemes in the Halo games. Just leave the remake with the original controls...now if only they would rerelease the Duke controller.

It's ages since i played halo 1 on xbox so can't remember the control schemes for it but reach have control schemes that are like both halo 3 and 2 (with slight modifications to fit the abilities and so on of course) as well as a bunch of other ones, i would guess this remake would do the same

ahhell said,

Well.. they needed to be adapted with the 360's controler.

Reach's default controller is the adaptation between Halo 3 and Halo 1 and 2...

I would love to see some of the madness games remade, like the original Midtown Madness and Motocross Madness series. There are a lot of great games that deserve to be updated.

So true. I almost forgot about them. With the current technology they could really be awesome but... Publishers are evil!

Except this is... a completely different game, in a way.

I wish they'd rerelease all the old xbox games on the 360 so we can play them again with nicer graphics... people who say why redo it, if you dont like it dont buy it... heck I was happy Nintendo redid the original side scrolling mario games for mario all stars... should I of bought a NES and all those games just to play them when they made them a lot nicer looking on the SNES? seriosuly?

Agreed, there are a lot of great classic games I'd love to see remade. I just finished the new Monkey Island SE remake a few weeks ago, even though I have the original DOS version. The only thing changed was the graphics but it's still incredibly worth it, though according to Debbie Downer up there I'm a chump for wasting my money on the same game.

You are. Although let me elaborate slightly. There is a distinction between remaking a classic, and remaking a game that isn't that old. Halo isn't that old. I wouldn't even lump it in the same category as Monkey Island or any of the Mario's pre-n64. Interesting that we all have differences of opinions. Isn't it? Debbie Downer. *snicker*

No I'm not, if I enjoy the remake it wasn't a waste of money. You're trying to push your "opinons" as fact. The only thing I'm wasting is my time responding to an ignorant troll.

So stop responding? I'm not pushing anything. I made a statement. If you feel like it's being pushed upon you, maybe you might consider what the real issue is. It certainly isn't that I have a different opinion than you. Because that's really all it is. I'm sorry you feel more important than that.

The reason this will probably do well is simple...

Online Co-op and Online Multi-player.

There is a part of the Halo community that would love to play the original multiplayer maps with the original weapons and weapon settings on XBox Live.

Indeed, and right now they are probably all holding their thumbs pretty hard they won't screw up weapon and map balance for the remake

If I buy the game it will be because of this.

If they were to put new maps, and stuff like that... I will consider it buying it... (Although I don't have the two first Halo, always played at a friend's.)

It amazes me that the original game got 97 on metacritic... who really ever thought all those levels with the flood were actually fun?

Tk1917 said,

I personally found it utterly boring. I got the game in a bundled, wasn't interested at all. Played again after I found out it was a good game. Still does not interest me. Guess you can't please everyone. Not sure about multi-player, but nothing in Single player ever remotely made me interested. Maybe is just the way the game went where they had many very well armoured enemies that took too many shots to kill. Back in the day I replay everything, I never wanted to touch it again. But it scored 97 metacritic. Guess I just missed the fun.

How you approached each situation and used different weapon sets to defeat the AI in varied encounters was were the fun was. It was unpredictable. Playing on harder difficulty made it even better. Each to their own though.

If they released it on the PC I would be tempted, but have all Halos already on the 360 and don't really feel the need to play through Halo 1 again no matter how good it was the first couple of times.

You're wasting your breath. Regardless of what you (or I for that matter) believe, people are stupid enough to buy "the exact same thing" over and over again even if the difference is ridiculously small.

Although I do like the idea that the game is being upgraded to HD, I certainly wouldn't bother spending the money on it again. No reason to pay twice for the same game. It's like buying both the Full Screen and Widescreen editions of a movie seperately. It's just silly.

I absolutely loved the game. I spent so many hours playing it but I only bought it a couple of years ago because I never had my own xbox (a buddy had one) and so I would never buy it again especially since theyre probably gonna charge $70 for it

Did you buy a 360? OMG why, you could have just stayed with the original XBox, or the NES. You are seriously gonna waste money to have better graphics? Come on!

That is not the point. The point is, the game will be the same.

Graphics these days have minimum requirements, we expect a game to take advantage of its hardware. Personally, the original Halo was quite average. Single player mission seems long by placing the same obstacle 3 times. It was almost bad as Oblivion and their very varied design of Dungeons.

I personally can't be and will not be bothered by remakes of games on Xbox or PS2. Hell, the way prices are going, it may not actually be that much more expensive to buy the console and the game. Least you will have access to other great games that is not re-maked because developers actually want to make new contents instead of a cash cow.

Eddo89 said,

Just how do you know this? Remakes are usually much more than just graphics. Look at Tomb Raider Anniversary for example. To say it's going to be exactly the same with nothing more than new graphics, you don't know that at all. I'm quite sure it will have a lot of other improvements.

Second as others have repeatedly pointed out to you, not everyone has played the original Halo yet. Now what do you think makes more sense for these people, digging out an old XBox and buying an old copy of the game, or just buying a modern version of it for their 360?

At the same time there are plenty of people who love the original game and would be thrilled to have a modern remake of it to play. If you don't want to buy it no one is making you. It's existence doesn't have to affect you at all so I'm not sure what all the complaining is about.

No one is complaining. People are just simply expressing their opinion. It just so happens, that opinion is not in favor of a remake. No one is forcing you to read their opinion, in fact I'm pretty sure their opinion doesn't effect you at all.

You're complaining about them remaking the game, complaining about how "stupid" people will go out and buy it, etc. Do you think they're going to stop the remake because you don't like it?

A person is not stupid for buying a remake for better graphics. I still have the original game and I'm very much looking forward to this being released.

That would be expressing an opinion. Not complaining. Nowhere once have I said, "Oh dear gosh golly me. I don't think my life could go on if they remade this game! I'll complain about it until the sun comes up 73 times!". What I did say however, is that I think it's silly and the people that fall for this unnecessary cash grab, are stupid. It's quite possible you have a reading deficiency. You might want to get that taken care of. There is a huge difference between complaining and expressing an opinion on a subject.

If you're unable to differentiate between the two, that's certainly not my malfunction.

Personally, I consider it much in the way of movies. There was VHS, and then people bought the same movies again, but on DVD, and now people are doing the same yet again with BluRay. I did enjoy the Halo series, and would love to play it again, and the added feature of online co-op is what makes it appealing to me. If they didn't mention the online co-op, I would probably have waited for it to arrive in a bargain bin a couple years after release.

Looks like some people are also stupid enough to whine about what other people enjoy.

I think it's a great myself, especially for those who have not even played the original. There is nothing wrong with remaking a game to update it to modern standards. There's also online play, you do realize that the original Xbox doesn't work online anymore? Either way I the changes will be much bigger than you think.

I can compare your claim that anyone who buys this is stupid to one made recently on my facebook wall that being a Republican has made someone successful and Democrats contribute nothing to society. Generalizing half a nation is as stupid as saying everyone buying this is an idiot.

PERSONALLY, I may buy this game. I never had the first for xbox. I'm like thousands of others who have downloaded the demo (and then borrowed the full game) on my PC, and I thought the MP (and SP for that matter) for it is great. We still go LAN in school during my online block when everyone's bored and finished with work. Having this on Xbox not only brings me a good game that looks better that I never had, it's quite likely this will run better than the original one since it's made for a system with better specs. Throw in that I prefer controller gameplay than computer (which a lot of people do), and you get people everywhere who would want to play online on xbox again. Do you recall the story of the people who left their consoles running for days after server access was shut down, just so they could play this? Then there's the fact that it's highly likely the new developers will be adding more to the game. Whether this comes in the form of maps, guns, whatever, I can't say, but I have plenty of legitimate reason to want to buy this.

The more you're trying to come out as being the fair one here, the more you're digging yourself down to look like a pompous a**hat. It's my sincere wish to see all towers like yours fall with the occupants in them.

nekkidtruth said,

You guys do realize that there could be online multiplayer (not over XBC), right? That's mostly the reason anyone is excited for this. We all know that Halo CE exists. But we don't all still have our original Xbox's to play on, and we sure as hell aren't going to use the laggy software emulation on the 360. Most definitely, it's been 10 years. All of us have grown up and don't have to time to go to LAN parties.

Halo Reach failed a lot of us, at least in the competitive community, so having a game that was renowned for competitive play redone for our day is awesome.

Perhaps one should learn to read. I mentioned Halo in one of my posts. I'm curious where you get "strawman arguments", since I'm not arguing anything. I simply expressed my opinion. Interestingly enough, many find my opinion different from theirs. Hence all the foot stomping and arm flailing.

Whats wrong with you? Halo is the one game that deserves a polish. Their the reason Xbox is so great, this is the one game with an intense story line, especially with all the books and concepts made for the past 10-15 years from Bungie. I love Halo and i'm trying to figure our which Spartans are still alive, and who's going where, and all this captain key's mambo jumbo from reach, so SINCE THERE IS A GAME BASED ON BEFORE HALO 1..it's reasonable to remake halo 1 to make it suitable.

That's the point, unfortunately. It's easy money for the company. No thinking involved - they already have the game, all they have to do is remake and profit from it.
And look at all the people lined up already willing to give their money for it... it's a no-brainer from a business point-of-view.

See now if you had said that in the first place instead of calling everyone stupid, folks wouldn't have gotten so annoyed at your comments.

Of course it'll be an easy cash-in for Microsoft, but that doesn't make it bad. Plenty of folks loved that game, and will gladly pay for it to be rebuild for HD with new online functions. Surely it's no different from re-releasing DVDs in Blu-Ray.

And if this remake includes Multiplayer over Xbox Live... it'll be more than worth a $20-$25 price tag.

You're confused. It is my opinion that people are stupid for buying this. The issue isn't that I think people are stupid, the issue is that people have taken offense by my calling them stupid. Which is fine, as I would too. Doesn't change my opinion though.

Nope, only consoles I own are the NES and XBOX 360 Slim (Which I got on the release day). So I haven't been able to play Halo 1 and 2. This remake would be nice for people like me who are "late in the game", so to speak.

I really like the idea of reviving amazing games such as Halo. Even though its just a cash in (imo), i dont think games like this should ever be allowed to be forgotten.
