Halo Summer Celebration Announcements – Backwards Compatibility, 4K Update, and More

E3 2017 has reached its close, and with other events like RTX and Gamescom ramping up with more news and announcements, it seems expected that 343 would release a few updates related to the series in this season. Halo 5 will be receiving a 4K update for the upcoming Xbox One X release, ramping up the title’s already gorgeous graphics to put it on par with the PC port Halo 5: Forge. Halo Wars 2 will be finishing off Season Pass content this August. July will bring an old character by to the limelight, the deceased AI Serina, and new campaign missions under the banner of Operation: Spearbreaker; August will put forth an entirely new leader, Yapyap the Destroyer. And finally, exciting news for backwards compatibility on Xbox One, four brand new Halo titles will be available through the backwards compatibility program this year. Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, and Halo 4 will complete the library of Xbox 360 Halo games playable on the Xbox One. All DLC for the Xbox 360 Halo games will also be available for free as part of this celebration.

While this is the major news to come out of the Summer Celebration blog post, there is much more to get excited for, and all of it can be perused on HaloWaypoint.com.
