1. Not on steam

Yep, go madsmiley.png yourself Microsoft.

1. It's on steam. Here. http://store.steampowered.com/app/277430/?snr=1_4_4__105_1

2. Requirements: Vista or newer.

3. Agree frown.gif
Oh, well, thanks for clearing that up.

I only read the OP and saw a glimpse of one post that linked it on the Windows Store.

EDIT* From the video it looks like it will just be an over-the-head type of shooter like Alien Swarm...This is still disappointing.

This game has been in the windows 8 app store since it launched, so I doubt this is what they were talking about when they said they'll put more focus on pc. At least I hope this isn't what they were talking about.
Well It Works...

I actually enjoyed Halo on the PC when it came out... maybe I'm a minority? As for this Halo... meh. Give me all the old Halo games on PC so I know what's going on and then i'll consider buying it.

Of course my Halo fix was met mostly by reading the available written media for it. A good, or at least eventful story kept me satisfied smile.gif

I really don't understand why people seem to hate it so much.

Maybe it was bad servers, or maybe my PC wasn't good enough, but my experience with halo PC was AWFUL. Everything felt different, like it was floaty, sluggish, delayed, laggy, weird collision, etc. Shields seemed to not light up sometimes, rockets would fly through people, but then teleport back and kill them. Snipers would appear to miss me by a mile, but the shot would skill kill me. Camo sometimes made people MORE obvious on low graphics, when they could turn a bright solid color.

The gameplay felt like a poorly done fan mod of some other game. I didn't have anywhere near an XBox comparable experience with Halo PC.

I will prolly get flammed for this but I'd prefer it on origin, i actually like it better then steam but that's just me... To be honest other then forza not much else of M$ IP's I'm crazy for , maybe a true anniversary Halo 2 that is the original with improved graphics not that garbage halo AE they made on 360...

Give us Halo CE Anniversary Edition, Microsoft...

Do it. Don't think. Just do it.

I suppose they will sloooooowly introduce new Halo title's to Steam over the next few YEARS.

By the time we get it the actual games we want, the nostalgia will be COMPLETELY gone and no one will give a crap. mad.gif

And I almost didn't play 2, because trying to get Halo 2 to work on Win 7 64-bit is nearly impossible unless you spend a boat load of time troubleshooting and researching the depths of the internet on info on how to. Ha, I even wrote instructions on a text file on the steps to get the game working for next time.

This game is ehhhhh. Still haven't gotten around to playing all after 2. Hell I still havent gotten around to even playing the console I just bought 2 months ago. I would like to see Halo Wars brought over. I never was interested in it when it came out but now I want to play it.

Yeah same, I bought a X360 just to play the rest of the Halo games (although you found a much better deal than me, I bought a new X360E 250GB and all the games new, now its just collecting dust lol).

This news makes me feel somewhat validated in doing so though, doesn't seem like they really care about bringing an actual game to Windows.
