The Master Chief and all his guns, friends, and enemies are heading to personal computers. Halo 2: Anniversary Edition releases on PC this week.

This isn’t the first time Halo 2 has appeared on PC, but that was a strange port that also used some weird tech that let you play it while the game was installing. Remember that? This new version of Halo 2 on the PC is part of the Master Chief Collection and includes the remastered campaign and multiplayer maps.

I’d dabbled in joining a random Unreal Tournament server here or there, but Halo 2 was my first real online game. The concept of lugging a console upstairs next to the modem and plugging it in was so foreign to me, but I did it for an afternoon with an Xbox Live trial, after a few hours I knew that console was going to stay right there until it died or I moved.

I’m not sure how the multiplayer’s going to work on PC. The lack of an ADS is really going to be hard to get used to, I think. But if the experience is otherwise the same, there may be many long nights of Team SWAT in my future.
