The main element of each title is the story campaign, in which we complete various missions and tasks on alien planets, although it's also worth mentioning that the Halo series also features a great multiplayer mode, which used to reign supreme on the Xbox 360 console. All the games have been properly refreshed to look good on modern displays despite their age, with Halo Combat Evolved and Halo 2 getting a major graphics overhaul.
What makes it worth playing?
Halo is a true classic and a hero as iconic as Lara Croft, Sonic or Doom Marine. It may be nothing new to Xbox veterans, but with this collection, PC gamers finally have a chance to get acquainted with this one of the most famous game series. Master Chief's set plays a symbolic role on this list, because of the number of games in the bundle, as Game Pass subscription includes the latest installments, such as Halo 5: Guardians, the RTS spin-off Halo Wars, or Halo Infinite. If you get involved in the adventures of the elite soldier, grow fond of the voice of Cortana or driving the Warthog – you're in for a treat and many, many hours of fun.
