Does anyone know when HALO will be out on the PC? I can't wait any longer!!!!
Well looks like your gonna have to. It's not uot untill the Third Quarter 2003. I couldn't find an actual release date so i don't know if their is one as yet!
I had heard that it would be Summer, (but this was way back at the official press release).
It will be coming for PC and Mac simultaneuosly and will not just be a straight port. They will be adding a whole bunch of online options. I'm hoping for co-op multiplayer games over the web!
Great news sweetmate
Personall I can't wait for this... it should fill the gap until Halo2... going on Halo online, on Xbconnect just lags tooo much.
I was okay with it before but then I played some Live and just can't cope on connect anymore.
Agreed, XBconnect just doesnt cut it anymore (and I can't face running up and down the stairs from pc to xbox!)
If they get the difficulty right (aiming will be more precise and pc-style so the gameplay will need a fair bit of tweakage) this could be an awesome MP PC game.
It's reported to have a modified engine, with rewritten pixel shaders for DX9, rewritten network code with support for 32 players and new maps.
I'm still hoping for co-op multiplayer, ie being able to play through the campaign with other people (2 player co-op on a projector was the best way to play Halo on xbox) but I'm not holding my breath for it.
Halo 2 will be co-op online, just grab some buddies from your XBL friends list and all kick covenant ass together. Ahhh, it's good to game.
