At this years Gamescom, 343 Industries have announced the Halo Channel. Set to debut this November exclusively on the Xbox One console, the channel has been described as the 'Home For Halo' by it's creators. 'It will be your destination for all things in the Halo Universe.' 343i stated.

We were also treated to a small glimpse of the future of Halo, with Xbox releasing the following video, 'Halo 5: Guardians Beta First Look'.

Here we learn that Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta is set to release on December 29th and continue through to January 18th, standing for a total of 3 weeks. You can customize your Spartan, as they set to battle focusing on 4 vs 4 game types, with smaller maps and identical loadouts. This will give you, the player, the chance to get hands on with the future of Halo for the very first time, and give feedback directly to the creators themselves. You'll be granted access to the Halo 5: Guardians beta by purchasing Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

But, That's not all! 343 also announced another one of the six re-imagined, re-mastered maps that they have been creating for Halo 2: Anniversary, part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection - 'Sanctuary.' This map will be playable at Gamescom all week. So if you are attending this years event, be sure to stop by and be one of the first to explore the game!

This classic Halo 2 map has been made to perfection, with plenty of TLC 343 Industries have done a fantastic job of keeping the maps classic feel whilst packing a host of new awesome features, Sanctuary is visually flawless.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been in high demand since 343 Industries announcement earlier this year at E3 2014. And Halo fans in the UK have something to be extra excited about. Video game retailer GAME have announced an exclusive 'Mjolnir Edition', and it certainly packs a ton of Halo awesome. Included in the Mjolnir Edition is a 12-inch posable fully armored Master Chief statue, a physical map book including all the maps from the game, the Grunt funeral DLC Skull (YAAAAY!) and an exclusive Halo: The Master Chief Collection steel book case including your copy of the Halo collection. This will set you back a whopping £169.99.

If that isn't your thing, you can also opt in for the Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Limited Edition. This includes all of the above minus the Master Chief statue. So you still get the Halo steel book case, a physical map book and the Grunt Funeral DLC Skull. This will be retailing at £52.99.

Whilst these currently remain exclusive to GAME UK, It's not yet known if they will become available worldwide at a later date. It should also be noted that the Grunt Funeral DLC Skull will become available to everyone in the future.

343 Industries have released a new trailer for Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

'The Halo journey begins in 2014 by remembering and celebrating our past. This holiday, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will launch on Xbox One, marking the first time the entire Master Chief story will be playable on a single console. Included with Halo: The Master Chief Collection is Halo: Nightfall an original live-action digital series that introduces a pivotal new character in Halo 5: Guardians. In December, the journey continues with the competitive multiplayer beta of Halo 5: Guardians, leading up to the fall 2015 launch alongside the Halo television series.' - 343 Industries 


Remember that quad from Halo 3, the Mongoose? Well, you'll be pleased to know it's set to make a return in the Anniversary edition of Halo 2. 343 industries have newly named the vehicle the 'Gungoose'. And looking at the picture, i'm pretty sure you can hazard a guess as to why! Halo 2 is just one of the four games that will be included with Halo: The Master Chief Collection arriving on Xbox One later this year on November 11th.

343 have also been working on arguably one of the greatest Halo multiplayer maps of all time, Coagulation is a Halo 2 multiplayer map that was a remake of the Halo: Combat Evolved multiplayer map, Blood Gulch. It stands as a huge valley with image identical bases at either end, it's certainly one of the fans favorites.

Coagulation was first announced at the Rooster Teeth Expo last weekend as one of the six Halo 2: Anniversary maps. These maps run at 60 frames per second and will hopefully run at 1080p resolution. These pictures of new concept art were released, along side this RTX video footage.

With Halo: The Master Chief collection arriving on Xbox One later this year, which Halo title are you most looking forward to playing? 

As always get in touch!

343 Industries have been quiet, maybe a little too quiet. And today we can see why, At this year's E3 2014 Microsoft Media Briefing 343 announced Halo: 'The Master Chief Collection.' which will contain remastered versions of Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4, and will also include the entire back-log of each games DLC on one handy disc. this November 11th, on the tenth Anniversary of Halo 2's release.

Each Halo title will undergo a sweet 343i makeover for the Xbox One console, and will run a sexy 1080p at 60 frames per second. The new Master Chief Collection will allow you to jump between the original and new graphics. The gameplay will be almost identical to the games as they were originally released.  

All missions in The Master Chief Collection will be unlocked right from launch, and a brand new interface will let you jump between missions much more quickly than before. Purchase Halo: The Master Chief Collection and this will gain you access to the Halo 5: Champions multiplayer beta (YES YOU READ RIGHT! BETA!!!) which will be landing on the Xbox One console this December. And if that isn't enough to get your Spartan senses tingling you'll also get full access to Halo: Nightfall, a Halo video series created by Ridley Scott and Alien director. New episodes from this series will be launching weekly, and is promised to be longer than a feature film when placed together. This series is not to be confused with the Steven Spielberg created Halo TV show, which is still very much in the making and is set to launch in later 2015.
