Halo: The Master Chief Collection video shows overhauled Halo 2 cinematics

Undoubtedly, one of the biggest draws of Halo: The Master Chief Collection is the full restoration that Halo 2 will receive. 343 Industries and Blur Studios have been hard at work to give the 2004 classic the full Anniversary Edition treatment that was similarly given to Halo: Combat Evolved and the fruits of their labor are being shown with a new cinematic trailer revealed at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.

The trailer below will show off a number of classic Halo 2 cutscenes, reconstructed from scratch to fit a more modern aesthetic, looking far closer to what's been on display in more recent Halo games. This is among the the many upgrades that 343 has promised for Halo 2, having previously mentioned that Halo 2 will contain "additional fiction" to help flesh out Master Chief's story further and even offer some hints as to what's coming in next year's Halo 5: Guardians.

Watch the whole thing below and remember, if you don't like it, there's always the option to use classic graphics. Halo: The Master Chief Collection will arrive on November 11 on Xbox One.
