Halo: Combat Evolved offers the players a unique experience of battling their way through aliens that are ready to tear to shreds anyone that gets in their way. The game launched for PC not too long ago, and players are delighted. Although it was initially released 17 years ago, Halo: Combat Evolved went through some big changes during the 2011 Xbox Anniversary remake, and therefore it features new and updated graphics. We have to admit that nobody nowadays likes 2003 graphics for a game.
Developer 343 did a surprise launch of the game for Steam and without any lead-up announcement. You can buy the Master Chief Collection for $40, or you can choose to buy individual games for just $10 apiece. This version of Halo: Combat Evolved supports high resolutions up to 4K, has an unlocked framerate, and FOV options.

As you can see, the system requirements are not high for a game capable of running the 4K resolution. The description of Halo: Combat Evolved on Steam puts it very clear:
“Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary comes to PC as the second installment of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Now optimized for PC, relive the spectacularly remastered edition of the original Halo campaign, created in celebration of the 10th anniversary of one of the most beloved franchises in gaming history. After crash-landing on a mysterious ringworld known as Halo, the Master Chief is tasked with helping the remaining humans survive against the overwhelming Covenant forces. While doing so, he and Cortana uncover Halo’s dark secret and fight to protect all life in the galaxy.”
