Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is set to release for Xbox 360 on November 15, a report said.
The game is set to receive a Skywalker Sound upgrade and the studios Certain Affinity and Saber Interactive, with inputs from 343 Industries, has worked to keep the feel of the original game, which was released in 2001, alive.
Officials from 343 Industries, in a statement, said that the old controls and gameplay have been maintained but will still feel like a new FPS (First Person Shooter).
The new re-mastered version has been modified to fit widescreen monitors and an option of switching to the ‘Classic Mode’ has been included where the new enhanced graphics will make way for the original 2001 game. The multiplayer mode, which is based on last year’s Halo: Reach, will have seven maps from the previous Halo games.
The game will also provide the player with up to 1,000 new achievement points and a new two-player cooperative mode playable over Xbox Live.
The developers also discussed about the upcoming Halo Fest which will start on August 26, at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle. The Fest will feature contests and tournaments and will provide the latest information about the development of the game. The famed Warthog vehicle of the Halo series will be shipped over to the convention center to attract crowds.
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary will be available for $39.99, the Game Hunters website reported.
