Maps that were once exclusive to the Windows PC version of Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 will appear in the HD anthology Halo: The Master Chief Collection when it launches for Xbox One on Nov. 11, developing studio 343 Industries confirmed.

Halo: Combat Evolved for PC and Macintosh released in 2003 and included six maps not available on the Xbox version: Timberland, Death Island, Gephyrophobia, Danger Canyon, Ice Fields and Infinity. Halo 2 was ported for use on the Windows Vista operating system in 2007 and it featured the maps District and Uplift.

Additionally, weapons that were left out of both games on console but included on their PC ports will be made available in The Master Chief Collection. These include the Fuel Rod Gun and the Flamethrower. Console fundamentalists will be able to filter out these weapons by choosing a "classic" weapon option during matchmaking.
