Halo 4 finally has a release date for Steam players, completing the Master Chief Collection’s arrival on PC. Halo 4 officially joins the PC Master Race on November 17 and with this news comes a brand new trailer.
The PC release of Halo 4 takes the 360 title to the next level with customizable keyboard and mouse support, a beautiful 60+ FSP, and revised settings specific to PC. Take a look at the video below to see it all in action:
“Now optimized for PC, experience the fully remastered campaign to embark against new foes, dust off some orbital drops in Spartan Ops, or dive right back into the multiplayer,” reads the video’s official description.
According to Halo 4’s Steam page, below is what fans can expect when the game arrives later this month:

Microsoft has been lessening the gap between console and PCs for a while now, but that extension into the Steam library has been a massive game-changer for players. Being able to play beloved Xbox staples in a more customizable way on PC has been a treat, especially with franchises like Halo and Gears of War. With a move to Steam also means mods and as we all know, I’m a massive fan of any type of moddable content.
Now we just need 343 Industries to add Halo 5 to Steam …
