Halo: Reach for PC and Xbox One, Microsoft: Monumental Launch


Microsoft is satisfied with the results achieved by Halo: Reach PC launch

Halo: Reach has recorded almost three million players on PC and Xbox One during the launch week. In a post published on the Xbox blog, Microsoft expressed satisfaction with the results obtained.

Halo: Master Chief Collection was also the most sold on Steam in the first seven days, recording the best debut for an Xbox Game Studios title on the Valve platform, as well as the most-watched game on Twitch on day one.

Overall, almost three million hours of Halo dedicated streaming were broadcast on the platform during the launch week. We recall that by purchasing the Halo: Master Chief Collection for PC you have immediate access to Halo: Reach, while Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4 will arrive in 2020.

In our review of Halo: Reach for PC, Simone Tagliaferri wrote: “Halo: Reach remains a shooter in the first person still very valid today. Of course, many of those that were new in 2010 is not anymore, but the great narrative awareness of the single-player campaign and the very solid overall realization, tend to make the elapsed time appear much less than other games.

Remarkable also the work of remastering that, despite not having transformed Halo: Reach, however, has rejuvenated it just enough not to make it unpleasant for the modern public, between textures in high resolution and additional effects. In short, the Halo series made its PC debut in the best possible way. “
