Halo is back guys. Just follow this post to kill some spartans!
Are you serious?!
You heard me correctly. If you haven't been living under a rock you would of heard about a little game called Halo Online, a free to play Halo game that runs on a heavily updated Halo 3 engine which is currently ONLY PLAYABLE IN RUSSIA. But modders over a 4Chan have successfully stripped down the game, essentially removing all micro-transactions, giving the game Halo 3 esque menus, and most importantly... making the game playable anywhere in the world. The mod is called ElDorito.
Awesome, so how do I install?
The process is relatively simple, just go to reddit.com/r/haloonline and you will see a sidebar to the right of your screen. You'll see a quick links section. Read through all of that, but most importantly, follow the steps in the Useful Information Google Doc, as this is where the instructions to install the game are found.
So I have the game, how do I get into a server?
When you get onto the main screen of the game where it says Halo 3 (Because the game is in an alpha state, it uses old logo's and assets) press F11. Then the game will hide itself and bring up a server browser. After this, pick a server and fight!
Is the game compatible with controllers?
Yes! Including your Xbox 360 controllers. I use a mouse and keyboard though, so go ask on Reddit for an answer for this one.
I have other questions!
Go to reddit.com/r/haloonline. The developers of the ElDorito mod and other users will be happy to help you there!
Have fun everyone and enjoy!
