My eyes are raining: The Halo 2 Anniversary Cinematic Trailer looks absolutely gorgeous

Halo fans everywhere gave a collective cheer when Microsoft and 343 Industries announced Halo: The Master Chief Collection at E3 2014. The game will bring the storied franchise to the Xbox One, and encompasses the entirety of the series from Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary right through to Halo 4. While the original Halo previously got the Anniversary upgrade, Halo 2 will also be getting the same refresh, graphics and all, and the first preview of this was unveiled earlier today with the Halo 2 Anniversary Cinematic Trailer. Note: Make sure you watch this in 1080p!!!

The cut-scenes included in this trailer were worked on Blur Studio, and you can really see the striking difference that 10 years has made in terms of graphical prowess. I’m particularly impressed with the upgraded facial animations (Sangheili included), but it’s hard to point out anything that isn’t incredibly impressive about what’s in the trailer. Cinematics aside, I can’t wait to see how the updated graphics look in the actual game. The Halo: Master Chief Collection is due to be released on November 11th, 2014 and will be a joint release with the Halo: Nightfall mini-series that was teased yesterday.

What do you think about the Halo 2 Anniversary Cinematic Trailer? Does it bring back fond memories for you? Let us know your thoughts.
