Halo: Master Chief Collection is 50% off ahead of Halo Infinite’s release

The Steam Summer sale has begun, bringing huge deals on several PC games. One of this year’s headlining discounts is Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which is on sale for 50% off on Steam right now.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is a bundle that includes six classic halo games, including Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: Reach. The collection has been optimized for PC with 4K graphics and 60 frames per second. It faithfully preserves the single-player campaigns and multiplayer modes of each game. Online play is available for all games in the bundle.

The 50% price cut takes the package down to $20 from its usual $40 price tag. For those who don’t want to buy the entire package, each individual game is discounted to $5. Those who are only itching to play some good old-fashioned Halo 2 can simply grab that title carte blanche instead.

It’s a bit of good timing, as Halo Infinite is right around the corner. While the game still doesn’t have an exact release date, Microsoft recently confirmed that it wll launch sometime this holiday season. That means we could see it as late as September, so The Master Chief Collection is a good way to kill the time until its release.

Developers recently revealed that they’re experimenting with upping the collection’s team sizes as well. Producer Sean Swidersky teased that team sizes may be increasing to as high as 60 players down the line, so it’s a good a time to get reacquainted with the multiplayer classics.

The Steam Summer Sale runs from now through July 8. Halo: The Master Chief Collection will remain 50% off until then, so there’s time to decide.

How to get into Halo: Reach beta

Microsoft continues to blur lines between its Xbox One and PC players with the Xbox Game Pass, and no reveal signals this change more than Halo: The Master Chief Collection finally coming to PC. With Master Chief’s tale being exposed to a new audience, the developers are adding a chapter that was missing from the collection with Halo: Reach coming to both PC and Xbox One players. For those awaiting the release, 343 Industries previously said it could go live for select players later this month if “everything goes according to plan.”

But it appears those plans could be changing. According to a new blog post by 343 Industries, the flighting for Halo: Reach may take longer than initially anticipated. Earlier we reported that flights could happen as soon as this month but there's a possibility that might not be the case. The developer explains that while the version geared for Xbox is "looking and playing great already," internal builds for PC still need some work. Bugs and the full UI/remap key functionality are currently on 343's list of items to address before the Halo: Reach beta launches to the public.
