Halo Channel revealed at gamescom

By -

Today at gamescom in Cologne, Germany, we announced the Halo Channel. Debuting this November exclusively on Xbox One, it will be your destination for all things Halo Universe. We have a video that offers just a peek at some of the incredible original content, interactive features, and unlockable treats that await you.

Observant fans will note a very familiar looking map is being developed for Halo 5: Guardians in the below video. Spoiler alert! It's Midship and it's being honored as the beloved home for small team, arena battles it's always been known for. Want to learn more? Watch the video!

That's not all! We also announced another one of the six re-mastered, reimagined maps that we're doing for Halo 2: Anniversary in Halo: The Master Chief Collection - Sanctuary. If you're at gamescom this week, you can be one of the first people ever to explore the verdant ruins of this iconic map.

Of course, all this week we'll be at gamescom, but the home team is going to be part of the fun, too! On Friday, we'll do a live stream of our pro team on Ascension and Sanctuary. We'll let our hot-shots give you the first-person tour of these maps to whet your appetite for the finals direct from the Halo: The Master Chief Collection Gamescom Showdown on Sunday.
