New details for 'Halo 2: Anniversary' emerge

Ever since Microsoft announced "Halo: The Master Chief Collection," there hasn't been many details released about the long-awaited "Halo 2: Annivesary.' Despite the fact that most of the recent information regarding Halo has been about their new live-action series, "Halo: Nightfall," that doesn't mean they're not aware of the high demand for more info about the remastered collection. Most recently, new details have emerged on the Halo Waypoint website regarding "Halo 2: Anniversary."

According to Halo Waypoint, "Halo 2: Anniversary" will feature a redesign of the (arguably) fan-favorite map, "Zanzibar." This map was first introduced in the original "Halo 2" for Xbox, and was then re-released for "Halo 3" on the Xbox 360, and is now making another comeback in "Halo 2: Anniversary" for the Xbox One.

As the title suggests, "Halo: The Master Chief Collection" is going to include all four games in which Master Chief is the main character. The games will run at 60 frames per second in 1080p, and will include every DLC that has been released, all on a single disc. Additionally, the remastered versions of Halo 2, 3, and 4 will feature the Forge map editor. The collection is going to be released on November 11 for $60, and is available for pre-order at many retailers.

I just really want them to include a patch or something to make the original Halo's multiplayer playable online. Original Blood Gulch and Battle Creek with the pistol before it was nerfed in Halo 2. My dream come true...

Excellent. Lockout is next.

Lockout has been my favorite map so far. I believe 343i and Bungie love it too, since there have been adaptations going on in Halo 3, Halo Reach, and Halo 4!!!

Another Microsot ad that is not disclosed as being payed. New details emerge for a map, not even a new one, just rehashed, and there's a link to the game bundle preorder.

That or this is a very dry Microsoft news day.

First, it's very likely they weren't paid for this. The only revenue is from ads on the page.

Second, there is not a link to the game bundle preorder. It's a link to another Neowin article about the pre-order. It's very normal to link to past articles.


That or this is a very dry Microsoft news day.

It's the weekend. Neowin is always slow on the weekends. Most of the news is posted during the week. It's just part of the normal rhythm of things.
