Multiplayer-only Halo Online headed to Russia


You know what's good? Money

Halo Online sounds like something you'd see scribbled on a homemade DVD complete with copyright-infringing cover art but, no, it's a proper PC game in development at Saber Interactive.

Granted, it's a free-to-play, multiplayer-only title that is exclusively releasing in Russia, but it's still officially sanctioned. In terms of graphics and setting, Halo Online is based on a modified version of the Halo 3 engine and takes place on "a secret UNSC space installation called Anvil."

On two separate instances in the Q&A, the game is described as "a learning opportunity for us as we explore ways to welcome new fans to the Halo universe." A closed beta will launch this spring.

As for Halo Online releasing in other territories, maybe? "Theoretically, any expansion outside of Russia would have to go through region-specific changes to address player expectations."
