Halo 3: ODST Hits PC on September 22

The city of New Mombassa will finally see the light of day on PC. In a Tweet earlier this morning, Microsoft announced that Halo 3: ODST will be joining the PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection on September 22, 2020. In a really nice touch, this is exactly 11 years to the day since its original release on the Xbox 360 back in 2009.

As with the other PC ports of Halo titles, ODST will feature mouse and keyboard support, uncapped framerates, higher resolutions, and 21:9 ultrawide options. While the first couple of PC ports were less than ideal, Halo 3 really shook things up. ODST will likely be similar, offering the definitive version of this fan-favorite side story.

If you’re an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, you’ll get access to ODST immediately when it releases. The title will also be available from the Windows Store and Steam on PC, so you have some options for getting it. We’re still waiting on news of cross-platform multiplayer support, but that does seem likely to happen before the end of 2020. 343 Industries has been cranking these ports out rather quickly and will continue to improve them over time.

I’ve never actually played ODST as it didn’t quite interest me at release. I was a bit burnt out on Halo, a series I never quite had a deep connection to, so I skipped it over. Featuring a noticeably darker tone than the rest of the series, I feel like I made a big mistake all those years ago. At least I’ll be able to rectify that soon.
