TA Playlist for August 2018 is Live with Halo: Combat Evolved

By Mark Delaney, 20 days ago
Somehow, August is here already. That means a new month of TA Playlist has begun and this month we're going back to where it all began for the Xbox brand with Halo: Combat Evolved. You could play along with an original Xbox copy of the game, of course, but we expect most of our community will be playing from an achievement-enabled version. In that case, that means both the last gen Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and the current gen Halo: The Master Chief Collection will count toward participation, though in the latter case it'll be just the original game's achievements that earn your badge.

We'll be discussing at length how crucial the series was to kickstart the Xbox brand, how the game holds up both in story and multiplayer, and we'll be making up some game sessions to play with the community too. Come along with us over to the TA Playlist Hub where we'll have our usual busy month of forum chatter, achievement popping, and video sharing.

With July in the rear-view, that means we are just days away from the next episode of the TA Playlist Podcast in which we'll wrap up last month's game, Fallout: New Vegas. That episode is ready to go and you'll find it on site or in your favorite podcast app this weekend. In the meantime, strap on those iconic helmets and drop into Halo with us!
