Halo: Reach returns in Halo: The Master Chief Collection for the Xbox One and PC. You have the chance to return to a highlight in the Halo franchise that took place immediately before the first game, Halo: Combat Evolved.
The game has 10 missions for players to play by solo or with friends. The entire campaign could take you eight to 10 hours to complete. However, this depends on the difficulty setting. It could take a bit longer if you play it at the highest difficulty, Legendary, rather than the easier settings. The more you play through the campaign, the less time it takes to complete overall.
You can further vary up the gameplay in Halo: Reach by adding skull modifiers before starting a mission. These modifiers include increasing the enemy’s health, giving them a higher rank, or removing the motion tracker on your map. You can pick up to 10 different ones to change your score or choosing non-scoring options, like having a birthday sound happen whenever landing a headshot on a grunt.
It also helps to have reliable party members rather than standard AI who are aimlessly shooting. If you’re on a PC, you can’t play any local cooperative gameplay, but you can party up with friends online, granted they also have the PC version. The Xbox One version does have local split screen, and the online features.
You can play through these missions as many times as you like. You can try to achieve a higher score, and compare it with your friends to see who can receive the highest on your favorite missions. Make sure when you jump into Halo: Reach‘s multiplayer mode you rank up in the first season with Season points to unlock armor and prepare to fight in the Invasion mode.
