Halo: Reach's countdown clock on Steam is approaching zero. PC players will be able to purchase the DLC soon. The Halo: The Master Chief Collection will also arrive to Steam in its entirety during 2020.

Halo: Reach will launch for PC on 3 December. Xbox Game Pass For PC Twitter account just sent out a message saying "Halo: Reach. Your PC. Tomorrow.". 

Safe to say that people are excited as the tweet is blowing up. The game will be dropping on Steam tomorrow and players will join the Noble squad to travel to the planet of Reach (roll credits) to fight back against the Covenant and grant the mankind time to rustle up a defence. 

Master Chief will, sadly, not be making an appearance in the upcoming re-release Nevertheless, Halo: Reach will be added to the Master Chief Collection when it drops.

Microsoft made an announcement earlier in 2019 that PC players will not have to wait much longer to embody the Chief. Other Halo games will trickle on in during the coming months and we will see the full Halo Master Chief Collection at some point in 2020.

Buyers beware - Halo: Reach will not arrive on Steam in its finished form. However, the developers have announced that they will be rolling out numerous updates to remedy the server lag for the mouse and keyboard inputs as well as the multiplayer part of the game.

"We intend to have several improvements made before December 3" says the statement from earlier this month, "but since we feel this is an area that can always be improved on, we’ll continue listening and chasing down reports and doing additional work as needed". We leave it to your discretion to discern whether this means Microsoft are aware the PC version will have input lag at launch and are easing players into it or if they are delivering a finished product and genuinely looking to bring superior experience.
