Those interested in reliving Bungie’s Microsoft high days in Halo: The Master Chief Collection will probably enjoy the four different videos the company released for the compilation. Footage details the changes made to Halo 3 and 4, as well as showing gameplay from Halo 2: anniversary in singleplayer and multiplayer.

Notable changes for Halo 3 and 4 are mostly set on hammering the 1080p resolution that runs at 60 frames per second (fps). This, in turn, makes the gameplay more fluid than before, which is admittedly quite noticeable when looking at the video. There is some more detail when it comes to environment and lighting. Also, Microsoft is candid about changes being less thorough than the older iterations that are getting full overhauls. Honesty is appreciated.

In the first clip for Halo 2: Anniversary, we go to Cairo Station in the campaign mode. We see some shootouts taking place, grenades being thrown, environment getting tossed around; the usual carnage. Some guns pack quite the punch. Gunplay is mostly short range for the tight corridors of the station, but there’s a glimpse of longer range as well.

For the second round of footage, the location shift to the more open ruins over at Delta Halo. This is where you go to if you want to see how sniping has adapted to the new style. Also, the mostly brown, earthy environment may become a bit more vibrant with natural overgrowth everywhere.

You probably are most interested in multiplayer though, because why wouldn’t you be? Well, if both Zanzibar and rocket launching weapons sound good to you, this is going to be pretty great. There is definitely some scoping in this industrial expanse as well. Of course, it wouldn’t be a multiplayer reel without going over multiple vehicles, so that’s in there as well. It’s definitely where Halo shines.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection releases on Xbox One on November 11, 2014. Sadly, it doesn’t include Halo Reach or Halo 3: ODST. You’ve got four games to revisit though. That should keep you busy.
