Halo Online is a free-to-play multiplayer-only Halo game that will be released exclusively in Russia. The multiplayer mode is based on a modified version of Halo 3’s engine and will feature several classic weapons, vehicles, and maps, in addition to some new maps. Match player counts can vary between 4 and 16 players. This is the first Halo PC game since Halo 2 Vista, which was released in 2007, and only sees around 16 people playing on average today.
FAST FORWARD TO TODAY:
Have any of you played it? It’s supposed to be in a closed pre-alpha stage as we speak, but because this is the internet, anyone can get their hands on it now. Some of those hands happened to be modders. With their magic, they were able to “fix” the game (forcing English language, cracking the online checker), and you can play online using a VLAN service, (such as Tunngle, or Evolve. … no not the game.)
