Halo SPV3 has now been released


Over the past number of years, people have been crying out for developers to create a game that plays like the FPS of old, non-linear, campaign focused and created with replayability in mind. Recently Games like DOOM and Wolfenstein: The New Order has been able to scratch this itch somewhat, but if there is one game that PC gamers want to see return to PC it is classic Halo. 

This weekend Halo SPV3 has now been released on PC, bringing an all new Halo experience to PC with 21:9 and 4K resolution support, improved visuals and a lot more gameplay variety. 

We have spoken about Halo SPV3, Single Player Version 3, before and since then I have been able to play an early version of this game and have personally had a lot of fun playing it. The team behind this mod has worked tirelessly to bring

Halo SPV3 - The Halo CE overhaul that fans have always wanted


Players that are interested in playing Halo: Combat Evolved's SPV3 mod will need to have Halo: Custom Edition installed on their PC, a standalone, multiplayer-only expansion for Halo: Combat Evolved.   

This is an unsupported version of Halo PC which was released by Gearbox Software back in 2004 which allowed users to play custom maps and for users to create single-player campaign mods.  

While this version of Halo is a standalone free product it does require a Halo: Combat Evolved Key in order to run, though the program has been updated so it won't require the use of an Original Halo: Combat Evolved CD in order to run, which is great news for those of us who no longer use DVD drives.  

Copies of Halo Combat Evolved can be purchased for as little as £3 here in the UK now from retailers like CEX, through less legitimate means can be used to get a working Halo: Combat Evolved CD key. 


Installation Instructions

1. Run the Halo CE installer, and enter your CD Key when prompted.

2. Copy the Halo CE 1.10 patch to your desktop, and run it.

3. Run the Open Sauce 4.0 installer. Make sure you have the latest .NET Framework via Windows Update before installation. 

4. Take the folder "Halo Custom Edition" and place the files in it into the "Halo Custom Edition" folder located in 
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games. It will ask you if you want to overwrite existing files, hit Yes.
