Halo Online Discussion

Recommended Posts

In a recent press conference for a Russian developer "Innova" it is launching, in partnership with 343i, Saber Interactive, and Microsoft, Halo Online. HO will be a free to play multiplayer shooter for the PC, exclusively in Russia for the time being.

Above is what appears to be an early build of the interface. Which is reportedly being run off the H3 engine. Where as the source says it's a multiplayer experience, it also states that the events of the story take place in the time period between H3 and H4. Visually running off the H3 engine, the interface seems very H4-esque.

 

 

According to a NeoGAF thread the specifics are as follows:

 

4-16 players

Graphics on par with Halo 4 based on Halo 3 engine
Power-ups and weapons pick-ups on the battlefield
Rich visual and gameplay customization of weapons and armor
There will be vehicles.
f2p is about weapons, armor and power-ups
Right now developers said nothing about story mode and there is likely the game will be MP-PVP only

 

 

Nothing is too specific in the article, and as far as I can tell there hasn't been any confirmation from Microsoft or 343i.

This is from attackofthefanboy. Looks like 343 wants to let out all of their immersion fantasies in one game.

I really hope a similar game like this comes to North America. More of a CSGO model than anything.

Free to play game exclusive to Russia, that many in North America would pay to play. 

 

Makes sense to me.

So, I always wanted a side game where they could do all of this. I'll play as soon as I can get my hands on it, but really only because of my love for delving into the intricacies of Halo #lore. I've always wanted to be able to customize my spartan with armor that had a real effect on the game. Sorry, saw the post and had to nerd out.

Well after reading the details they can keep that shit. That's literally the embodiment of everything I never wanted in Halo

I found a leaked screenshot showing someone using the Assault Rifle.

 

343 are really putting their mark on this.

Dat moment when only Russia gets a better Halo game for free than the $400+ we spent for MCC 5 months later.

A F2P title filled with microtransactions that affect gameplay?

 

Nah.

If it doesn't that could be cool. I mean... interaction between community and developers for skin contests, armor designs... stuff like that. As long as it doesn't affect gameplay. I'm all against microtransactions that changes the gameplay.
