Microsoft and 343 Industries made several massive announcements earlier today and I’m happy to reveal them to all of you.

First off, current owners of Halo 5: Guardians for the Xbox One will be happy to learn the game will be upgraded to natively support 4K displays when played on the upcoming Xbox One X console.  This puts Halo 5 on the list of Xbox One games (including Gears of War 4) that will offer enhancements when played on the Xbox One X.

Secondly, Microsoft has announced they will be offering Xbox One backwards compatibility with the Xbox 360 games Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary.  This means Xbox One players with original copies of those games will be able to play the original versions of those games on the Xbox One without having to buy Halo: The Master Chief Collection.  While Backwards Compatible users won’t be able to play against Halo: MCC players, they will be able to play online multiplayer against Xbox 360 players. The best part of this announcement is Microsoft now intends to offer all the games’ DLC (including the multiplayer map packs) for free.

Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is out now on the Xbox 360.  Halo 5: Guardians is out now exclusively for the Xbox One.
