Halo 2: Anniversary now available on Steam, Microsoft Store, and Xbox Game Pass

Just as Microsoft promised, another title has reached the PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, this time delivering Halo 2: Anniversary to the platform for the first time. The remake has been an Xbox One exclusive until today and arrives to PC players only a couple of months after Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary.

Originally released in 2004 for Xbox and ported to PC in 2007, Halo 2 continues Master Chief's storyline and also adds a new perspective to the mix. The remake comes with quite a lot of enhancements over the original experience, bringing complete graphics and audio overhauls, new cinematics, and even a toggle to switch between the original and remake versions while playing, among other benefits.

The PC version, of course, comes with additional upgrades like uncapped frame rates, keyboard and mouse support, FOV adjustments, and more features the rest of the collection already shows off. Also, for the first time since Master Chief Collection reached PC, Theater mode has been officially enabled for Halo 2 and Halo: Reach, though Forge needs some more development time.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC is now available to purchase on the Microsoft Store and Steam for $39.99. However, purchasing just Halo 2: Anniversary is an option too, coming in at $9.99 on the aforementioned stores. Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers now have the game available in their library as well.
