Free-to-Play Halo Online Announced for PC, Is Exclusive to Russia

By   /   Mar 25, 2015

343 Industries is hooking up with Russian developer Saber Interactive for Halo Online, a free-to-play title exclusive to PC and which is currently being planned to launch in Russia only.

According to the developer, a closed beta will take place soon, and any plans for a release on Xbox One or outside of Russia will be considered once the PC release is taken care of.

Currently though, Halo Online looks to be just for that specific region, which might make fans of the series disappointed or curious in whatever way you might look at it.

Halo Online is said to be built on a modified Halo 3 engine and will consist of 4-16 player multiplayer action. There will be various classes to choose from, and each will undergo a deep progression and customization system.

From translated texts being shared on NeoGAF, Halo Online will include perks similar to Call of Duty. Players will be able to perform special attacks when approaching enemies from the back with stealth.

There will be special weapons scattered around the map, such as a Bazooka, that will replace the pistol slot upon wielding. A total of five slots will be present for each class. Different armor pieces will have different attributes, such as shoes giving movement speed and gloves improve recharging rates. Halo Online will feature a lobby system, where players can gather with friends for matches.

You can rest assure that more information will be revealed once the closed beta takes place.
