Halo 5 is Getting a 4K Makeover for Xbox One X

With that being said, if you're looking for a Halo fix, today 343 Industries announced that four Halo games will be joining Backward Compatibility for the Xbox One! It was odd to many, that Phil Spencer didn't mention Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection at E3 when the Xbox One X was officially revealed.

Also, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: CE Anniversary for Xbox 360 are all coming to Xbox Backward Compatibility. Seeing as Halo is one of Microsoft's flagship franchises, it's no surprise that it will be one of the first titles (even if it's an older release) to showcase some of the power of Xbox One X.

As with other Xbox One backward compatible titles, the original Xbox 360 game discs will work just fine.

Although 343 studios is mum on the details, they promise to reveal more as the release date approaches.

343 announces 4K update for Halo 5. Halo 5 now features dynamic resolution scaling (up to 1080p) to ensure that it runs at 60 FPS.

Along with the campaign and multiplayer, LAN play will be supported, especially when playing between Xbox One and Xbox 360.

On top of all of that, 2017 marks the ten year anniversary of Halo 3.

Thanks to the Master Chief Collection's various issues (some related to matchmaking problems, some related to how limited character customization became) fans have wanted these options for a while, and it's great to see it finally happen.

Called the "Summer Celebration", 343 Industries has some fairly big news pertaining to past Halo installments.
