if I buy just Reach will the rest of the collection then be $30 when I decide to buy it?
Does anybody else know? I'm considering gifting Reach to a friend but if the bundle doesn't scale its price accordingly and it remains $40 for MCC vs $10 per game a la carte, I may as well gift the whole thing.

On Steam the collection is still showing at full price for me.

I really hope this is good, I played the original Halo but that was it due to not owning an Xbox but I loved the gameplay. I'm very worried about the quality of the ports so I'll hang on for reviews, but £30 is a great price so I'll pick it up if it turns out to be solid.

Do we know what the Xbox One X versions runs at as far as Resolution and Frame Rate?

Can we switch the aiming reticle to the centre of the screen now for the MCC games on Xbox? I remember them changing it after Halo:CE and disliking it, didn't make any sense to me.

Anyways very excited to be playing this shortly!

It's currently configured as a package (as opposed to a bundle) on Steam, which means you'll see no discount for the collection if you already own one or more items in the collection.

This might change later on as new games are released however. Whatever the case may be, we won't know for sure until Microsoft/343i clarifies this.

Ah, thanks for the clarification.

Will MCC on Steam be like Gears 5 and allow us to earn XBL achievements as well as Steam achievements?

I got the notification ’Reach is ready to start’ but it does not show up in the campaign menu

I'm really curious what kind of numbers this game does tomorrow on Steam. It's been a best seller pretty much since it was available to preorder.

Why isn't there preload on Steam? That's big sad.

Ah gamepass only lets you install 10 MB as well. Wtf. It's 24 GB, let us preload 343!

I can't believe these mad lads have me excited about playing Reach, the worst of Bungie's Halo games.

But I'm still gonna have a blast in co-op with this on KB/M and a properly centered crosshair.

I keep trying to preload on Game Pass on PC and it says 24 gig to begin with then only downloads like 10 meg. Anyway to preload the full game now?

I was wondering why the game won't unlock for me until 11 hours from now... until I realized that I have the US as my region (since we don't have game pass here).

This is going to be my first time playing Halo. Is Reach the first in the story chronologically?

Yes it is.

EDIT: Above is right, I forgot all about Halo Wars. Wars occurs in 2531 while Reach occurs in 2552

So your order is, if I'm not mistaken

1. Halo Wars (2531)
2. Halo: Reach (2552)
3. Halo: CE (2552)
4. Halo 2 (2552)
5. Halo 3: ODST (2552, during the events of Halo 2)
6. Halo 3 (2552)
7. Halo 4 (2557)
8. Halo 5: Guardians (2558)
9. Halo Wars 2 (2559)

Yes, and following titles will also be released chronologically story wise:
  1. Halo: Reach
  2. Halo CE
  3. Halo 2
  4. Halo 3
  5. Halo 3: ODST (even if this will take place between H2 and H3)
  6. Halo 4
(then I suggest all PC friends to pick up an Xbox and continue the story with Halo 5).

Prepare for a Legendary journey (that will lead to Infinite)!

Halo 3: ODST story takes place before Halo 3.
