Who’s surprised? No, us neither. Halo: Combat Evolved was a seminal game in its day though and the thought of replaying it again, along with online multiplayer and HD visuals, is very enticing indeed. The online mode incorporates cooperative play as the whole campaign could be played with a partner. There will, of course, also be competitive multiplayer modes.
It all looks rather lovely. I expect Alex will be all over any game time he can grab with it. The game is expected on November 15th, presumably the US date as it’s a Tuesday. That’s remarkebly close to the Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 release dates. Multiplayer could suffer, maybe? We can’t wait to find out!
