Halo Master Chief Collection: H1-4. H2 full remaster. 1080p60. $59.99 Nov 11 Xbox One

So that's 87 all together including the halo pc maps

Add the 6 new ones and that still only 93...soooo...we are somehow missing some :)

Who knows. Maybe they're throwing in some forged maps as default variants that are being counted. Seems unlikely that they're including Reach multiplayer maps from what has been said thus far.
 
I must say frankie, it isnt Halo 2 unless Super Jumping is in it.




I remember discovering it, I could have very well be one of the first but who knows..




I miss the community that Halo 2 had
 
Dang, okay yeah. Like I was saying, I'm seeing conflicting reports everywhere.

I really do hope that means Infinity. (I'm happy about the other PC maps though)

Infinity was huge, gonna miss battling on those three walkways.
Hope one of the two vista exclusive maps get removed for the rest of the PC maps

That list left out the 4 different Forge maps in Halo 4. Ravine, Impact, Erosion, and Forge Island. They are all in the game I'd assume.
 
Here is the press conference MP footage, off-screen, at 60 fps:

Neat.

Looks like shield clarity isn't a concern in multi.



UI and art has a H4 aesthetic which I don't care for but that's just me.

Well, there's still sometime before release. Ideally it would be nice if ALL the PC exclusive maps were included. So I remain hopefully optimistic.

Infinity is such an awesome map, those huge walkways, the variable terrain.
The scope was huge and the battles even bigger. So I remain hopeful that Infinity makes its way in.

I think these remastered maps are doing what Halo Anniv. did for MP. Basically, like how HCA did MP in Reach's engine, I'm betting that H2A remastered MP maps are in the Halo 4 engine, but as long as all of MP is available in a single playlist, I also think that switching between engines won't be a huge deal and will probably be seamless.

Maybe they will change their minds, but Infinity was confirmed not in the collection

So that's 97 then.

Counting variants in the math is a possibility, then. Such as if there's five different "on-disc" Impact variants each being counted as its own "unique" map for purposes of saying the game has 100+

So is this 100 maps all playable in halo 2 multi style or just halo 1 online, halo 2 online, halo 3 online and halo 4 online?

Oft hope is born when all is forlorn.

lol someone please make a FAQ in the OP. Looks like we really need it. People seems to be confuse and asking same questions over and over.

Rewatching the reveal, I would like to point out that the sound is incredible. I can't wait to crank up my sound system playing this.

I wish there was a console rental service. I just want to play every campaign again and that's it. Not willing to spend $500 on the xboxone yet.

Someone please clarify. So is Halo 2 the only multiplayer? Orrrrrrrrr.. All 4 have their own respective multiplayers? All the maps on Halo 2 only? I'm confused about that.

And if they're separate.. The multiplayer will be the og multiplayer?
 
Darn
Rip Death Island or Danger Canyon or Ice Fields

If two Halo 1 PC exclusive maps had to be removed, I'd have to pick Timberland and Infinity. Timberland because fuck Timberland, and Infinity just because it was so strange. I actually really like Infinity, but it's true that it was very large and awkward. Better for really long full games or for general hijinks.

But Timberland is confirmed to be in unfortunately for me. So which two of these are getting the axe?

Death Island
Danger Canyon
Infinity
Ice Fields

I'm thinking Infinity and Danger Canyon simply due to their stranger map design. If they remove Death Island I will freak out, but if the banshee isn't included then I can see them removing it as it was a staple of the map.

I dont know why they'd leave two out, though. If theyre using the original engine, isnt it about as simple as dropping another map file on the disk?

There are six PC maps including timberland and gerphyrophobobiarbiarphyrbr.

And what about banshees in multiplayer, as in H1PC?
 
CEA for single player and original for multiplayer.

TImberland was in Halo 1 remake so yea its included
Gephyrophobia has banshees in it though which was confirmed in the remake.

It's weird when the selling point is nothing has changed in 10 years.

Considering thats exactly what fans wanted its not all that strange.

But then again, even with Microsoft doing exactly what the fans want I can guarantee you my fellow halo fans will rant and rave about how "343 ruined it" or "its not halo"

The Halo community can never ever be happy with a Halo game. The grass is always greener. Personally I'm happy to be able to enjoy all the campaigns again on my Xbox one in 1080p. I mean don't get me wrong I can't wait to get stuck into all the multiplayer again, but its the revamped artwork for the campaigns that I'm looking forward to

It is all OG multiplayer. The game will allow you to switch and it will seamlessly load the engine.

343 is kinda using this as a way to see what Halo players want out of their multi.

So much this.

Halo 3 is an incredibly beautiful game, held back by its awful resolution and lack of aa and af.

It will shine in full 1080p.

It's basically like playing it in photomode.
