Will I need a copy of Halo CE to play?
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.
Will the mod support modern operating systems?
One of my major concerns with this mod was that it was based on a game from 2001, which could experience some issues when running on a modern OS like Windows 7, 8.1 or 10.
I have raised this concern with the mods lead developer and he has assured me that their play testers have experienced no difficulties running this mod on modern operating systems and GPUs.
When will the mod be released?
The mod will release on June 25th for free on the mods official subreddit (r/halospv3). The mod will be less than 2GB in size, which is pretty astounding for how good this game can look. You can see the mods release trailer below.
