Halo Reach Lands on PC Today
Peter Donnell / 11 months ago
It’s been a long time coming, but the Halo Universe has finally come back to the PC. We’ve not had a proper Halo release from the FPS series since the first couple of games. Heck, one of them even required Vista, that’s how long it has been.
Thankfully, one of the finest entries in the series, Halo Reach, launches on PC today. What’s more, it still looks and feels like the original release, but with some notable improvements. 4K resolutions, unlocked frame rates, ultrawide support, and so much more. It’s Halo, but it’s better than it has ever been. Of course, it lands on the Xbox One with some big improvements too.
Not only that, but it’s just the first to come to PC. The rest of the Halo: MCC games are being filtered out over the coming year.
How to Play
You’ll be able to play from 13:00 EST or 18:00 here in the UK. The game is available as part of the Xbox Games Pass, or on PC with the Game Pass Ultimate on Windows Store. It’s also available on Steam too.
