Halo: Reach is Now Available on the PC

Halo: Reach is now available on the PC for the first time as part of Microsoft’s reissuing of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Halo: Reach officially joins Halo: The Master Chief Collection with Xbox Game Pass and for Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, and Steam,” a Microsoft representative told me. “With Halo: Reach, players can experience the heroic story of Noble Team, a group of Spartans, who through great sacrifice and courage, saved countless lives in the face of impossible odds.”

Microsoft announced back in March that it was bringing the entire Halo: The Master Chief Collection series to the PC, and that it would do so over time, with each game being released according to their fictional chronology. So Halo: Reach is the first title to ship, since its storyline takes place before any of the other games in the series.

Like most Halo games, Halo: Reach was never made available before on PC. (The original Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 both shipped on PC long ago) But it’s not just on Xbox Live: You can buy the game on Steam as well, either as a standalone title for $9.99 or as part of the entire Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which costs $39.99.

Microsoft says that it will continue to release the other titles in the Master Chief Collection—Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4—on PC throughout 2020.

    <p>I haven't played Halo since the original Xbox, but this is something that I've been looking forward to. It seems like a great way to catch up on what's happened in the franchise over the last 20 years.</p><p>Will probably wait until next year to buy, when all the games are completed. I'm not big on throwing money at things that aren't done yet.</p>
