Halo: Reach on PC finally has a release date on PC, after being teased for months. On December 3, the first part of Halo: Master Chief Collection will be released on:
Steam Xbox Game Pass for PC Microsoft Store Halo: Reach can be purchased separately (it is listed on Steam as a DLC). Or it can be purchased a part of the Halo: Master Chief Collection as a bundle with future game release dates to be announced for Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4.
It wil be interested to see how the Steam version will interact with Microsoft services, as it will require a Xbox Live account to play the game.
Since inception, one of the most criticized elements of Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform is the lack of support for file modification. After many years, it seems Microsoft is finally changing their tune. In the current build of Windows 10, Reddit user Pycorax has found a folder with an interesting name in their Program Files directory, titled “Modifiable Windows Apps”.
Microsoft’s official webpage provides more information, shedding light on the folder’s purpose.
While modding was definitely possible (albeit difficult) on UWP applications,
Microsoft finally supporting file modification will alleviate what is perhaps the most controversial issue plaguing the Universal Windows Platform.
