... Only in Russia. And made by Saber. (Apparently 343i thinks they did a real swell job with the MCC.) Also, it's PC exclusive.

Not that surprising given games like Call of Duty: Online, which is in China. Still funny, however.

It's like they want to cheapen their franchise.

Eh, I mean, Call of Duty: Online has been around for a while. I actually don't see that big of a deal with them exploring this option, but that's just me. If they bring it over here though, I agree with you.

What I do have a problem with, however, is them testing out F2P mechanics. Because you certainly know they're going to see what sells then see if they can bring it over into mainline Halo games.

Worth pointing out however is that this follows the time honored trend of 343i copying whatever Call of Duty does.

The fact that this leaked less than 24 hours after its announcement is pretty insane.

 

Game runs really well, seems tailored to mid/lower tiers rigs.

On the bright side, you can still super bounce in Halo: Online.

Featuring better multiplayer than Halo 4 and 5.

I may or may not have tried this out, and also got an overkill on Valhalla in the banshee by bombing a full warthog and splattering a spartan in a nice lag free server browsing experience due to the beta mod being released by a group for this alpha halo 3 pc build. Quite amazing what a group has accomplished in their free time. They just got forge working to save custom maps and game types now and it usually has about 60-100 people on so it's only getting bigger and better in the future.
