Alright,shoot.


Breakdown:
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.


Few more details:
Game was presented by 343 themselves
Closed Beta will start "very soon"
Team Slayer and Assassinations modes confirmed
Backstabbing confirmed
There will be trials and missions like "kill 30 enemies today". Typical f2p fashion.
Microsoft is co-distributing the game here in Russia
One of the game locations is Russian city



HALO ONLINE IS A FREE-TO-PLAY PC SHOOTER COMING ONLY TO RUSSIA
437 It even includes a new MP map set in Russia.
More Halo Online details were just shared on the Halo Waypoint blog.

Halo Online will launch this spring, only in Russia. It's designed to run well on lower-end PCs. There's no campaign mode, but the game is set on a secret UNSC space station called "Anvil" where Spartans train together and test new technology.

During the upcoming closed beta, the developers will monitor and adjust gameplay, features, and the in-game economy.

There are no plans to bring Halo Online to the Xbox One.

Original Story: In a move that nobody could have predicted, Microsoft has announced a new free-to-play, PC-exclusive Halo game for Russia only.

It's called Halo Online, and it runs on a modified Halo 3 engine. IGN Russia attended the reveal event and learned that Halo Online will take place right after the events of Halo 3. It will also include classic weapons and vehicles, fan favorite maps (and a few new ones, one of which includes a Russian town), and it is, of course, optimized for keyboard and mouse controls.


Matches can handle 4-16 players.

Saber Interactive, the developer that worked on Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, will lead the project. 343 Industries, the developer that worked on Halo 4 and the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians, will serve as a project overseer.

The game will be published and operated by Innova Systems, a Moscow-based company that operates well-known MMOs in Russia, including Point Blank, Lineage 2, Aion, and APB Reloaded.


While this announcement might seem strange, it's not unheard of for major franchises to have online-only game variants in non-Western countries. Another great example is Call of Duty Online, which launched its open beta in China in January.

Microsoft has announced no plans to bring the game to non-Russian territories. We've reached out for additional clarification.

Going to be typical F2P garbage. I'd rather play Monster Hunter Online because that has potential. Or hell, give me back Shin Megami Tensei Imagine. That was one of my guilty pleasures.

Here's another interesting picture and from this article I read from google translator:

Seems like I can't post image, here's a link :

http://i09.kanobu.net/r/2b120294ad3a8999cb73ff6584aff89e/1040x-/u.kanobu.ru/editor/images/47/ea6aeb0b-ef1f-478d-ba3e-3ba694b3cd89.png

Maybe we'll be able to hack into the game and mod it or at least use the assets for the modding community.

We can also hope it to have firefight, that'd be interesting...

Are you kidding me? Modding improves the lifespan of a game. With the halo 3 engine on their hands + modding tools people playing on pc could make stuff much better then what is on xbox. They would definitely not include modding tools and If they do they will probably be bad.

It's an F2P game, there won't be any editing kit, they must be the only one able to provide content to the game so they can ask money for it but some people with Reverse Engineering skills could hack into it and make some tools...

This is the closest we've been to finding a future for our kind community and yet, we're so far away. Right engine, Low PC requirements, Online mode... but Crappy free to play, Russian only and obviously no editing kit...

M$ just stabbed a knife in the heart of many Halo fans now

They didn't stab us in the heart, they dangled the carrot (virtually) close to our face but took it to the russians.

This is probably just a test to see how the game does in one of the most pirating countries around. Then again, the game is free so... wtf MS.

As they said, this is also a test of Halo PC interest among community. The way they made it sound had me thinking, we should probably Ask for an editing kit, make ourselves heard. There is a window of opportunity right now and we have to seize it

I don't understand why you keep saying that, it's a free game.

All you have to do is fiddle with the menu buttons until you get the game to work.

... or learn Russian.

Let's be honest though, what we really want to see on PC is solo or at least Firefight and I'm not sure if they're ready to give this to us...

This does not make sense. This takes place after halo 3 and before 4 so shouldn't their be no Promethean weapons? You can see a spartan pointing it at the sword guy.

Who plays Halo for single player? I haven't played Halo for the single player alone since 1. The multiplayer is where it is at.

And you think that other countries will get access to the game files / download link?

That's why I keep saying that :P

I used to play the Russian beta of warface when that was a thing. Someone was even able to make a full translation for that. Won't be suprised if people do so for this.

Also H3 engine, most likely uses .maps, inb4 Latino halo online maps

That's why i love VPN's and if for some reason idk if it will be but if the game is in .maps most likely since it's made off halo 3 adjutant can extract the files and possible someone can take the Russian language and change it to english (unless it's in a different format) like what was done to warface before it released in the US cause it was out for almost a year in Russia before it was finally released in the US

Also if adjutant could also support for repacking of the .map then if and when we get a hold of halo online files you could possible replace weapons or parts of armor with other pieces from other halo games or custom textures...ect, it was done with titanfall cause it supported source engine and people did that by taking models from cod ghost and porting them into titanfall.


But nonetheless if something like a english conversion can't be done i'll still be playing it via a vpn like i do call of duty online and watch a tutorial on youtube on what's what in the menu and then work out the rest on my own.
