Microsoft has found the perfect way to blend Halo's old and new with The Master Chief Collection

Later this year, Microsoft will be releasing a new collection of Halo games for the Xbox One. The Halo brand has been a cornerstone to Microsoft's success with Xbox, and back when the original Xbox launched, Halo: Combat Evolved was a must-have game. With the Xbox One, Microsoft will be bringing back a few of the Halo classics under the banner of the Master Chief Collection and thanks to some leaked content, there is an awesome rendering trick included as well.

A video has surfaced from the Halo panel at Comic Con in San Diego this week which shows that during gameplay, you can switch the rendering engine at any point to make the game look like it did when it first launched. The video highlights this feature that allows you to bring back the nostalgia at any time while playing.

The entire collection has been redone to include new high resolution textures, but we suspect that many of you will likely want to see the game like it was originally created many years ago.

The game collection will launch later this year -- November 11th, to be precise -- so expect more of the game to be revealed as we get closer to the launch date.
