Windows versions support: If the Microsoft Store version of Halo: MCC will only work on Windows 10 PCs, the Steam version will support both Windows 10 and Windows 7, with Windows 8 "still being investigated".
There are now 73 games in the Xbox Anywhere program.
Finally, 343 confirmed it will hold a Reddit AMA on March 19 where it will answer questions about Halo: MCC on PC, the newly announced Halo Insider Program, and more. By opening up the program to PC players, Microsoft hopes it will have the same effect on the Windows experience. If you are accepted and are called upon but do not participate, it would mean that 343 Industries may not invite you back on future testing periods. An integration of mod support in this scenario could really open up the possibility for a second-wind of creative content in Halo. "Ultimately we want to get these games into player's hands as soon as possible". But the "will have more to tell" team is closer to the release of the collection. Of course, a PC release will also happen at around the same time.
Meteor blast over Bering sea packed quite a punch without being noticed
NASA was reportedly alerted about the December 18 blast over the Bering Sea by the US Air Force. The space rock exploded with 10 times the energy released by the Hiroshima atomic bomb.
Each game will have a customisable field-of-view slider, although the options will vary depending on the game. Microsoft often skips the Valve-owned storefront for major releases, especially at launch, instead opting for the Windows Store, so why is this game on Steam?
It's also been revealed that 343 Industries will allow Field of View (FOV) sliders and unlocked frame rates in all games in the Halo: The Master Chief Collection, while a wide range of aspect ratios, such as ultra-wide 21:9, will also be included. Disappointingly, Halo: Reach's single-player campaign and Firefight horde mode will be offered as paid add-ons, with only multiplayer being free.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is gearing up for its long-awaited debut on PC, but developer 343 Industries has indicated that it won't be a Play Anywhere title. The Halo Insider Program will overarch the program to support all Halo services, titles, and products.
