Halo: The Master Chief Collection is a compilation of FPS games from the Halo series, developed by studio 343Industries, who are responsible for the brand. The set debuted in 2014 on the Xbox One console, and it consisted of the following items: Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2 (also in Anniversary version), Halo 3 and Halo 4; over time it was enriched with Halo 3: ODST. Almost five years later, the package also appeared on personal computers, and developers added Halo: Reach to the package; owners of the Xbox One version were then given the multiplayer content of the latter, while its feature campaign and the Firefight cooperative module were made available to them as a paid DLC.

Plot

The games included in the Halo: The Master Chief Collection compilation take place in the distant future. The main character of the series is the Master Chief - an elite earthly soldier equipped with a powerful armour, which is helped by Artificial Intelligence called Cortana. The first three editions of the cycle (as well as Halo 3: ODST and Halo Reach, in which we can trace the fate of other characters) tell the story of war waged by people and a federation of foreign races, known as the Covenant. Halo 4 begins a completely new trilogy in which the hero has to face his own destiny and the ancient race of precursors, which is a threat to the whole universe.

Mechanics

In the games forming the Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the action was shown from the first person perspective (FPP). The pillar of each of them is a mission-divided fictional campaign, in which we carry out the tasks set before us and eliminate hostilities of opponents, making use of an extensive, futuristic arsenal. The fun is diversified by the possibility of using a wide range of combat vehicles, headed by the cult Warthog.

Game modes

In addition to a fictional campaign that can be completed on its own or in cooperation mode, each of the games that create the following Halo: The Master Chief Collection has a rivalry-based multiplayer mode that includes all arenas that have ever appeared in a given production. In the case of Halo 2 players can choose whether they prefer to have fun on all the original, slightly refreshed maps or on selected but thoroughly modified arenas.

Technical aspects

All productions from the Halo: The Master Chief Collection compilation work in sixty frames per second. The Halo 2 stands out from the crowd, which has undergone a grim refreshment of graphics; just like in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, players can switch between the original and upgraded version of the luminaire at any time.

It is worth noting that on personal computers, individual elements of the set were made available gradually, starting from Halo Reach, which is the prequel to the next installments of the cycle.
