It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 15 years since Halo: Combat Evolved debuted on the original Xbox, but to celebrate the momentous occasion, developer 343 Industries has a special event planned for today.
For starters, 343 will host an anniversary live stream on the official Halo Twitch channel, complete with giveaways and surprise “goodie bags” for viewers. The event will fittingly begin at 3:43 p.m. PST.
If just watching the celebration unfold isn’t really your cup of tea, you can dive into a special “Anniversary Throwback” playlist in Halo 5: Guardians. The limited time multiplayer mode will include fan favorite maps from the original Halo title that have been remade by the Halo 5 community. Players will even begin each match with the iconic pistol from the original title.
