343 Industries, the developers of Halo has today announced that they will be launching a closed beta for Halo: Online in Russia, but only in Russia.
The developer didn’t reveal an exact date for the launch, but did note that the closed beta will be available sometime this spring.
They also said the following in their announcement post on their blog.
Halo Online is powered by a highly modified version of the Halo 3 engine and optimized for smooth performance on lower-end PCs. While there’s no campaign mode, Halo Online is set on a secret UNSC space installation called Anvil, where Spartan-IV soldiers train together in war exercises to sharpen their battle skills and test experimental technology.
During the Halo Online closed beta, we will continuously adjust and modify gameplay, features, and the in-game economy. We’re looking forward to getting feedback from gamers living in Russia when Halo Online enters closed beta later this spring via Innova’s 4game platform.
As of yet we also don’t have much information as to what Halo:Online will look like or how it will work, however 343 did answer a few expected questions on their blog post.
As soon as we find out more we will let you know.
In the meantime you can find out more at the source link below.
