It’s the first day of E3, and Microsoft has started with possibly the biggest announcement of E3 2011.

During their conference, everything went quiet.

Halo 4 has been announced.

Okay, I’ll give you a few seconds to take that in.

You ready for the next part?

A complete HD remake of the original Halo is coming as well.

OXCGN gives you a rundown of how it all happened.

Be back soon, dying of excitement

We all thought it was over at Reach.

We were wrong.

The lights dimmed.

The crowd became surreal.

The chanting we all know (oooooohhh ooooohhh ooooooooooohhhhhhhhh) came on, and the crowd went wild.

Halo 4 is coming out in fall of 2012, and is the start of a new trilogy.

And then we were left with our minds wandering.

And that’s not all. Shown earlier in the conference, Halo is coming back. But in a different way.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of Halo: Combat Evolved‘s release on the original Xbox.

Coming this fall, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is the HD remastering of the title, available to all.

High-definition remastered visuals in a Reach-esque engine, four player cooperative play in the campaign, and seven multiplayer maps all redone will combine to have an epic experience.

November 15, 2011 will be the date we get our hands on this masterpiece. Check out our screencaps!


What do you guys think?

Is Halo 4 a good thing?

Or is it going to be some of the worst to come?

And do we really want to buy a game from ten years ago again, just prettied up a bit?

I'm an American from steamy Louisiana, one of the most electronically deprived areas of the United States. I've gamed since I was four years old as a result, and plan to do it onto my deathbed. I discovered I could write in June of 2010 when I started a little site called Fans of The Genre with a few friends, and that eventually collapsed three months after due to social lives kicking in. No less than two weeks after that I discovered OXCGN via the community gamer gab competition, and become a staff member shortly after. In February of 2011 I was welcomed to the Editorial staff, then in March of 2012 I was promoted to co-owner... and here I am!
