After recently celebrating its 13th Anniversary, a Halo 3 Playlist has been added to Halo 5 to kick off the celebrations.
As it stands, Halo 5: Guardians currently has a playlist titled Halo 3 Classic Throwback for players to get stuck into. It features a number of Halo 3 maps that have been faithfully recreated using Halo 5: Guardians’ forge tools. 343 Industries have also tweaked the gameplay a little bit in an effort to make it feel more like Halo 3 again.
If you’re not a fan of sprinting, this is the playlist for you! That’s gone too.
Halo 3 Playlist Also Has Double XP
If the idea of falling comfortably back into the warm, comforting embrace of Halo 3 wasn’t enough… There’s also a Double XP event running alongside this playlist. @Halo tweeted the following in their announcement of the playlist earlier this week:
In the replies, some fans hounded @Halo for a Halo Infinite release date, while others cried out at the fact that the words “Halo 3″ and “Anniversary” were placed together. Sadly, this isn’t the Halo 3 remaster everyone wants…
But Halo 3 is on the Master Chief Collection! It also has some new cosmetics… So it isn’t all bad. You can read about what Season 3 brought to the Halo: Master Chief Collection below, if you don’t know already.
