Becoming somewhat of a tradition at the annual Rooster Teeth Expo down in Austin, Texas, 343 Industries has let fly a few new details for the upcoming Master Chief Collection due out on the Xbox One this fall.
While details are slowly being released, we now know that “Coagulation” is one of six maps picked to be remastered in the game. So far, Coagulation is the second announced remastered map joining up with Ascension. If you’re like me and it’s been a long time since you’ve touched Halo 2, Coagulation was a remade version of the wildly popular Blood Gulch map from the original Halo. It’ll be interesting to see how 343 manages to revamp the map further but for now, here’s a piece of concept art for it.
In addition, the Mongoose, Halo’s ATV style vehicle, is also getting revamped. Called the “Gungoose”, these vehicles will come strapped with a machine gun on the front of the vehicle, now giving drivers the ability to go on the offensive or being able to defend themselves from attacking enemies. To go along with this change, a new multiplayer mode called “Gungoose CTF” is being added as well.
Lastly, remember those cryptic and hidden terminals from certain Halo games? 343 confirmed that they’re definitely in Halo 2 Anniversary as well, but instead of unlocking a motion comic, these Terminals will touch on the story line in Halo 5 from The Arbiter’s point of view. Pretty interesting if you ask me.
There’s still a long ways to go so expect more and more details to slowly reveal themselves as we march towards release. Halo: The Master Chief Collection can be yours on November 11, 2014, for the Xbox One.
