Feast your eyes on greatness
Even though this was kind of leaked prior to E3, knowing that this is real and will be released November of this year still fills me with excitement. In the past we’ve done a few screenshot comparison pieces specifically with Halo 3 vs Reach vs Halo 4 and it was interesting seeing how Halo had evolved on the Xbox 360. Now with both Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 receiving the Anniversary treatment and Halo 3 and Halo 4 receiving bumped up textures and frame rates, we thought we’d do another screenshot comparison with the old and the new.
We’ve grabbed the screenshots we’ve used for the previous articles since no new Halo: Combat Evolved screens were released. Seeing as both Halo 3 and Halo 4 won’t be receiving the anniversary treatment, we can still compare both titles and the graphical leap that came from both games, being developed by two different studios as well. (Ed Note: PS: Yes, Master Chief is spelt incorrectly in the URL. Editing error on my behalf, and if changed will break various links around the web. Simple error easily dismissed, enjoy the screens)
Halo: Combat Evolved Original vs Anniversary
Halo 2 Original vs Anniversary
Halo 2 Original vs Anniversary Multiplayer
Halo 3 Original vs Halo 4 Original
Halo 3 Multiplayer vs Halo 4 Multiplayer
Once screenshots are released for both Halo 3 and Halo 4 receiving some bump up in textures and frame rate, we’ll definitely compare them with what we’ve got to see the improvements. For now enjoy the screens and in case you missed it, here’s the trailer that was shown during Microsoft’s Press Conference. Also it seems that The Master Chief Collection will be receiving a tonne of new features whilst including everything that made each game great back then. I seriously cannot wait.
