I thought this was cool too: "Each of these games will include campaign and multiplayer, and will even support LAN play on Xbox One – including LAN play between Xbox One and Xbox 360!"

Why is every Halo cover having Chief turn more and more clockwise?

Halo: Reach has been backwards compatible for over a year. Go wild!

"To give you a full 360 view of what it's like to be the Chief."

Happy to hear about the FREE DLC! I already have most of it, but don't think I ever picked up Halo 4's.

Is Halo 2 already backwards compatible? I feel like I'm missing something.

I never knew Halo 2 wasn't released on Xbox 360. I never played until the MCC so I assumed Halo 2 was on 360 since Halo: CE was.

Awesome! I need to go back and clean up some of the older games. Especially ODST which has been sitting at 42/47 achievements for years.

Halo 2 was an Xbox Original game. These are all 360 titles that are now backwards compatible. I think the confusing part is that Halo: Combat Evolved was given an anniversary release on the 360 and the anniversary edition of Halo 2 was part of the Master Chief Collection.

Halo 2 was for the original XBox, not the 360. It'll most likely be one of the first original Xbox Compatibility games when they start getting released.

Nice! I almost bought the Halo Wars stuff recently, and finally just used it for my Bean Dive. I would have been sad if I'd bought them

I just only bought the DLC for Halo: Reach at the beginning of the year as well and also bought the DLC for Halo Wars when it had it's permament price reduction. Oh well...

Hey 343!!

Any chance you can fix this achievement in Halo: Reach?

Halo: ReachA Storage SolutionThe A Storage Solution achievement in Halo: Reach worth 7 pointsUsing the File Browser upload a file to your File Share.


Oh and can you fix the servers on Halo 2 for GFWL please? - Halo 2 (PC) Achievements

That would be very decent since we never knew they we're shutdown until it was too late. Thank you.

A PC GFWL version is available but MP has been shut down for a. Few years

You should edit the article to note that the DLC is already free on the marketplace. https://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Search?query=halo&Dow...

Even the Halo Wars and Reach DLC is free, except for the Noble Map Pack. I'm assuming that's an oversight.

I think it's a little weird that they're making hay about system link. Wouldn't it be news if it didn't work?
