Halo:MCC to Steam, Hollow Knight physical edition, more



How is it going everybody, Adrian Simple here from The Gaming Observer, and this is your Daily Gaming Update for March 13th, 2019. Head over to thegamingobserver.com for links and a transcript of today’s report.

Halo: Master Chief Collection going to PC/Steam. Halo: Reach added

The Halo: Master Chief Collection is coming to PC, and it’ll be on both the Microsoft Store and Steam. Can you believe it? Not only that, but Halo: Reach is being added to the collection as well. Now, the way this is going to work is a bit different. On PC, what’s going to happen is that the game releases within the collection are going to be staggered. So Reach is coming out first, and then in chronological order it’ll go from the first game to Halo 4. What’s different, is that each of those games can be bought individually, though I would imagine that they’re also going to provide some kind of full-collection price.

This version of the game is being worked on by Splash Damage, which is working on Gears of War right now, as well as Ruffian, which just finished up with Crackdown 3. Now, for those of you playing on Xbox you’ve got a bit of a different story. When Halo: Reach arrives to the game, you’ll be able to play the multiplayer for free, but if you want the campaign or Firefight modes then you have to pay for some DLC. You can get that for free if you have the Xbox Game Pass. Anyway, this is really cool to see one of the most influential FPS’s actually getting away from console exclusivity, and I look forward to what the future of Halo can bring.

Hollow Knight physical and special edition announced

Back in November, Team Cherry announced that the physical edition of Hollow Knight needed to be cancelled due to some complications with their publisher Skybound Games. Well, the opportunity to buy it has arisen once again. They are now accepting preorders for both a collector’s edition and a standard edition for the Switch, PS4, and PC. If you’ve never played Hollow Knight before, for the love of good gravy please just go and do that right now. It is probably my favourite game of all time, and boy do I ever wish I wasn’t a struggling University student right now so I could actually buy the collector’s edition, it looks super pretty. Regardless, check that out if you’re interested, and I can’t wait to play the sequel to this game.

Dragon’s Dogma gets a Netflix anime show, much like Castlevania

Following in the success of Castlevania, Netflix has announced a new anime based on a video game, it’s something you may have heard before, called Dragon’s Dogma. I haven’t played the game myself but it is certainly on my backlog. It has a Switch port due for April, and the director Hideaki Itsuno has expressed interest in creating a sequel as well. So anyway, if you’re a fan I encourage you to check out the new TV series that is coming.
