343 Industries will be delivering the final game of Halo: The Master Chief Collection to PC next week, with Halo 4 now slated to arrive on November 17. The Insider tests for the title and several new features ended only last week after an extension, and it seems the studio is confident about their current states to plan a release so soon.
Much like the previous ports, Halo 4 on PC comes with a range of enhancements over the original Xbox 360 version, including up to 4K resolution support, uncapped frame rates, FOV sliders, native mouse and keyboard support, advanced graphics settings, and more. The complete campaign, Spartan Ops co-op missions, as well as multiplayer with 25 maps are included in the package.
In addition to Halo 4, 343 Industries was also testing PC and Xbox console cross-play capabilities and region selection in its latest Insider sessions. There's a good chance that these features will be introduced to the Master Chief Collection across PC and Xbox with Halo 4's launch. Also on November 17, the studio will be delivering the Collection to Xbox Series X|S consoles with enhancements.
Here's how the Microsoft Store describes 343 Industries-developed game's setting:
Witness the Master Chief’s triumphant return to battle an ancient evil bent on vengeance and annihilation. Shipwrecked on a mysterious world, faced with new enemies and deadly technology, the universe will never be the same.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection owners across Steam and Microsoft Store will be able to begin their Halo 4 journey starting on November 17. The game will also be available as a standalone purchase on the same platforms for $9.99 on release. As usual for Xbox Game Studios titles, Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers will gain access to Halo 4 on day one as well.
