Halo: The Master Chief Collection will keep the games' original multiplayer glitches

Halo: The Master Chief Collection's makers want to remain faithful to the way the four included games — Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4 — played, so they're planning to retain whatever glitches may have appeared in the original multiplayer components of those titles, co-developer 343 Industries said during a panel today at Comic-Con International 2014. "Bluntly, that was a difficult conversation internally, in the first place, because for every person irritated [by a glitch] there are five who love that stuff," O'Connor said. "So education will have to be some of that process." O'Connor was responding to a fan who coyly asked if any infinite ammunition glitches in the original games' multiplayer would be fixed for the re-releases. "Would that be the rocket infinite...

Halo: Nightfall's Agent Locke is playable in Halo 5, and other details from Comic-Con

Halo: Nightfall, the live-action series that will serve as a prologue to Halo 5: Guardians, will be set on a broken fragment of a halo ring and tell the origin story of Agent Jameson Locke, who will be portrayed by actor Mike Colter. At a Halo: Nightfall panel at San Diego Comic-Con today, 343 Industries' Kiki Wolfkill and Frank O'Connor were joined by executive producer David Zucker and actors Mike Colter and Christina Chong to show first footage from the show and reveal more details about its setting. "Setting it on a halo is a pretty big statement about the scale of this project," O'Connor said. "This is a partially functioning fragment of the halo ring and its nature and functionality play a role in the fiction." Given that it's set on a damaged halo artifact (with a functioning...

Your first look at Agent Locke in Ridley Scott's Halo: Nightfall

The first image from the upcoming Ridley Scott-produced Halo: Nightfall was released this week, introducing the new Spartan Agent Locke. The picture, which was leaked in an accidental post by Variety that has since been taken down, features actor Mike Colter, whose previous work includes roles in The Good Wife and The Following. Colter was previously confirmed as part of the cast; however, while initially the actor was believed to be playing a character called Marlow, sources confirm he's in fact set to play the new Spartan assigned a role in Halo 5: Guardians.

Halo 5's secret Spartan is Agent Locke, and his story will be revealed in Halo Nightfall

Halo 5: Guardians' mystery Spartan is Agent Locke, and the solider's story will be told in producer Ridley Scott's episodic series Halo Nightfall. When Microsoft released the first image of Halo 5: Guardians (above), the Spartan with a blue visor appeared as if reflected above Master Chief.

Locke will play "a key role in Halo 5: Guardians," general manager and 343 Industries studio head Bonnie Ross said. "We're using Halo Nightfall to basically tell his backstory and tell his origin story," Ross said during a Halo-themed meeting at E3 2014. "You don't have to watch this, but knowing this will kind of tee you up for all the new things that are going on in H...

Halo: The Master Chief Collection brings four Halo games to Xbox One Nov. 11

Master Chief's journey on Xbox One begins, as promised by franchise steward 343 Industries at last year's E3, later this year. But maybe not in the way many thought.

Everything will run at 1080p resolution and at 60 frames per second. Dedicated servers will power the collection's multiplayer component. The game will offer...

There and back again: the games returning to E3 this year

But seeing a game at E3 is no guarantee that you'll find it on retail shelves or in digital marketplaces the same year. Or, in some cases, the next. As games get bigger, development timelines get longer, and some games make more than one appearance at E3. Here are the games we've seen before, set to return to on stages and booths this week in Los Angeles. BAYONETTA 2 Bayonetta 2 has been around and unreleased for almost two years years. First revealed in September 2012, we learned last year at E3 that the Wii U exclusive is scheduled for a 2014 release with a two-player mode. We also went hands-on with the game at a pre-E3 event last year, so be sure to check out our impressions of Bayonetta 2, which is headed to Japan this summer.
