Halo 2 Anniversary edition getting multiplayer modes from other Halo games
During a recent panel, David Mertez, lead designer for Halo 2 Anniversary (which will be part of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection), revealed that the game will include some fan favorite modes from other Halo games into multiplayer.
The modes are as follows:
SWAT: The popular no-shields, no-motion-tracker mode had been expanded in Halo 3, and Halo 2 gets an upgrade.
Ricochet: One of the newest modes from Halo 4, where players have to get a ball into the enemy’s goal. Think Halo basketball.
Infection: The popular zombie mode from Halo 3 owes a Halo 2 custom game credit for its invention… and now, it’s coming to Halo 2 for real.
Race: Straight from the original Halo: Combat Evolved. Get in a vehicle and hit all the checkpoints.
The game will also have a new vehicle – the M274-M Ultra-Light All-Terrain Vehicle.
The collection, which releases on November 11, includes Halo 2: Anniversary, along with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 4, “Halo: Nightfall” (a new digital series), and access to the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta.
