We all knew it was coming, but I'm still pumped.

Lukewarm reception at the PC, IMO. 7 maps... Why only 7? Hope these are the 7... Battle Creek Blood Gulch Sidewinder Wizard Prisoner Boarding Action Longest

Also, kinda weird it wasn't explicitly stated there was online multiplayer.

Battle Creek
Blood Gulch
Sidewinder
Wizard
Prisoner
Boarding Action
Longest

I'm wondering the same thing. That cuts out six maps from the original.

Overall I'm cautiously optimistic. I know how liberally the term "enhanced and optimized" gets thrown around with remakes.

That's because the maps are remakes for Reach. Notice the assassination on the Damnation in the trailer.

I'm concerned with the framerate, and MC looks kind of funny. MC looks like one of those SquareEnix Spartan figures they're bringing out.

Overall, awesome. I can't wait to play coop with a full HD screen online. Day one for me.

Sure, ignore my topic. :( Online co-op is good. Hope the framerate gets fixed, though.

Horrible framerate issues. Yuck.

Definitely using the Reach engine, though.

So... it's just a remake of the campaign. This sucks.

Classic mode, winning!

"Halo CE Anniversary is being developed in conjunction with Timeshift developer Saber Interactive and Certain Affinity, known most recently for their work on the second Map Pack DLC for Halo: Reach. Anniversary uses the Halo: Reach engine to present an updated look for the original campaign, as well as a Classic mode featuring the original assets from Halo: Combat Evolved.

Six multiplayer maps from the original Halo: CE are making the jump to Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, along with "Damnation" from Halo 2. Multiplayer will feature the full sweet of options that players have come to expect from the series - including Firefight mode."

I don't know if this article has factual information in it or not -- Damnation is a Halo 1 map. Also, based on this article, Classic mode is just going to be the campaign with the original assets. All the multiplayer maps and footage shown in the trailer are from Reach. There's no online Halo 1 multiplayer, Classic mode or otherwise.

EDIT: Cocop, don't tease Classic mode unless there's something worth teasing (hint:
Spoiler
).

Lots of stuff on our site here: http://halo.xbox.com/en-us/

I'm not sure what all we have up there.

Well, online co-op is really nice.

Do we know if it's supported for the Classic mode?

Also, are the maps just tacked on to Reach? That's what it looks like judging from the trailer, which is kind of really shitty.

Well, now I'm significantly less excited. Also, apparently its going to be $40.

If it was a full game I wouldn't care, but this is sounding less and less like what we were expecting...

This is the worst game ever unless it contains a re-made Chiron TL-34.

This preview shows classic mode.

Like I said, it's just for the campaign. There is no Halo 1 multiplayer mode in this thing.

Van, I always appreciate your humor, but they blew their whole load on the Halo 1 remake, and there's no Halo 1 multiplayer in it, so I'm going to be bitter no matter what. It was basically the only thing I cared about, and now it's something that will probably never happen in my lifetime.

Yep, no Halo 1 multiplayer confirmed. It's a Halo 1 inspired map pack of 7 maps for Reach.
