Halo Summer Celebration event announced

New Halo games coming to backward compatibility program, and more news

Posted on

Microsoft and 343 Industries have announced the Halo Summer Celebration, a series of news and events across the Halo franchise.

The major news is that four games are coming to Xbox One as backward compatible titles: Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: CE Anniversary. Each of these games will support campaign, multiplayer and LAN play on Xbox One – including LAN play between Xbox One and Xbox 360. Once these titles are added to the program, you’ll be able to pop in your original disc or purchase a digital copy of the game via the Xbox Store and jump right in.

Additionally, every Xbox 360 Halo add-on map pack in the Xbox Store will be made available for free, ensuring you have everything you need to achieve maximum enjoyment in online matchmaking or custom games.

343 has also announced that Halo 5: Guardians will receive a game update to support true 4K with the release of Xbox One X later this year.

Once the Season Pass wraps up in August, Halo Wars 2 developers plan to release a new premium expansion, Awakening the Nightmare, which includes a new campaign from the perspective of The Banished, the return of the Flood, two new Banished Leaders, and a brand-new multiplayer game mode Terminus Firefight. The DLC is set for Fall release.

In the coming months, the 343 Industries team will be attending a handful events to promote the Halo brand and meet fans, including RTX Austin 2017, HCS Summer Finals at DreamHack Atlanta, ChinaJoy and gamescom.
