    Very much looking forward to this! I've never been much into FPS games, but Halo is one of my exceptions.

    What I want to know is, why is an XBL account required? Yes, I know it's free, but why isn't Steam DRM enough? But hey, the no. of reasons to own an Xbox just went down to zero :creep:

    Eyyy, that's a pleasant surprise, lmao. Been wanting to check out the Halo series, but never wanted to buy an Xbox for just that, so now I don't need to worry too much. :)

    They already admit up front that only one of the games will be available when it launches on the service at first. Bet they'll want another $80 for each game to be unlocked, depending on how many left-over Bungie douche-bro's are still at 343.

    but given that 343 has never released a PC game? I'm already anticipating the worst of the possible PC gaming sins. Everything including but not limited to:
    • 20fps lock
    • zero customization options whatsoever
    • crash unless a controller is plugged in
    • crash unless specs match or are better than base xbox one
    • day one patch is 3tb
    :whip:

    So there was an ama on reddit for it https://old.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/b2yhk8/mcc_pc_halo_reach_and_halo_insider_ama/, there's probably a better organised list somewhere.

    But looking to support uncapped fps, will have fov sliders etc, all the things you would expect. Will work on windows 7 which is suprising. Crossplay between win 10 store and Steam, crossplay with consoles being looked into to. Play anywhere being looked into, but nothing confirmed yet.
