Halo 4 Remastered Arrives on PC

Posted on November 17, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in PC gaming, Xbox with 4 Comments

Microsoft last night quietly released the remastered version of Halo 4 to the Microsoft Store, Steam, and Xbox Game Pass for PC/Ultimate.

There’s no official announcement as of yet, but the firm posted a wordless tweet indicating its availability.

With the release of Halo 4, Microsoft has fulfilled its promise last year to ship remastered versions of all of the games in the Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the PC by the end of 2020. The games were completed in chronological order, with Halo Reach being the first in December 2019, followed by Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and now Halo 4.

On the PC, Halo 4 provides the single-player campaign, the Spartan Ops co-operative missions, cross-play multiplayer with Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S gamers, 4K and ultra-wide display support, mouse and keyboard support, and more.

And as with previous games in this series, Halo 4 is available as a standalone title for $9.99 or as part of the $39.99 Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the Microsoft Store or Steam. It’s also available as part of your Xbox Game Pass PC or Ultimate subscription.

    The MCC is probably the best value in games I have ever shelled out money for. So glad I got to experience most of Halo for the first time in such a positive way.

    I read that cross-play is not for the Coop modes. Do you know if this is something that is planned? I don't like playing against my son, he kicks my butt. I'd rather play with him.

      It's not clear, sorry. Seems like the type of thing that could/should work.

      In reply to BeckoningEagle:

      Cross play for coop would be great! Full screen each.


      I tried cross play the other week for halo 3 so the kids and I could get more screen size (three of us playing so they can have the big TV and I'd use the laptop). No luck, but maybe it'll work for halo 3 now? (of all the halo multiplayers, we find 4 to be our least favourite)
