Halo 5 getting 4K update plus other Halo games will be backwards compatible

07 Jul 17

Microsoft has announced some great new things are coming to Halo fans. Older games will be Xbox One backwards compatible plus Halo 5: Guardians will have 4K on Xbox One X. 

The Xbox One X console is not out until this November, but more news about the 4K update for Halo 5: Guardians should be shared later this year. 343 Industries promises it will bring a true 4K experience. Hopefully 343 is able to make the game native 4K at 60fps like Forza Motorsport 7. 

Furthermore, many Xbox 360 Halo games will be Xbox One backwards compatible later this year. The games include Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: CE Anniversary.

The best announcement is the fact that every Halo map pack will be available free of charge. This is to ensure you get the full online multiplayer experience. The population for the games should be healthy since Halo is still played by many people around the world.
