IGN’s coverage will begin on October 6th with content every weekday and on Oct 22nd they will have a livestream with Halo 2’s original multiplayer lead designer Max Hoberman.

Along with this announcement IGN posted a trailer which had a few seconds of new remastered cinematics for Halo 2 Anniversary.

We get to briefly see Sergeant Johnson delivering the scorpion tank during the Metropolis mission, followed by Tartarus using his Fist of Rukt gravity hammer to capture 343 Guilty Spark after Arby killed the Heretic, and then finally Master Chief running outside of the temple after killing the Prophet of Regret as a Covenant fleet fires upon the temple.

Now Blur Studios is in charge of remastering Halo 2 Anniversary’s cinematics for the Master Chief Collection. The remastered cinematics won’t be a 1 for 1 recreation of the originals but that’s because Blur has added their own tiny spin to them and they’ve been extended bringing the total length of the cutscenes to around 1 hour. There will also be brand-new prologue and epilogue cutscenes that will act as bookends and these will provide some details and story elements for Halo 5: Guardians.

Blur Studio has worked with Halo in the past, producing Halo 4’s Scanned Trailer and the cinematics for Halo Wars.

Now when you pick up Halo: The Master Chief Collection and go to play Halo 2 Anniversary’s Campaign you will have to make a choice of which cinematics you want to experience – original or remastered – so choose wisely as you won’t be able to switch between them on the fly like you can with the graphics and sound.
