The rumors were true. How could they not be? Master Chief, John-117, will be devolving back into combat later this year with Microsoft and 343 Industries' remake of Halo: Combat Evolved. The now classic (?) first-person shooter is getting a high-definition facelift for release later this year.
Master Chief's original fight will be getting a visual upgrade along with a host of additional improvements. Classic multiplayer over Xbox Live anyone?
As someone who's grown a little tired of Halo and its brand of "shoot, grenade, melee" gameplay, I can't say that I'm all that excited by this remake. Of course, I lugged TVs all over the place and ran cables all over houses for several LAN parties with CE,so maybe Microsoft will change my tune once Game Revolution gets further impressions later this week.
