343 Industries has teamed up with Saber Interactive and Innova Systems to launch an all-new free Halo multiplayer game on PC. Dubbed Halo Online, the closed beta period of the multiplayer-only game will launch this Spring, but only in Russia.
“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.”
According to 343, Halo Online is a learning opportunity for the company in targeting new fans to Halo universe. The game was built specifically for PC and there’s no plans to bring the game to Xbox One.

The game is also unlikely to make its way outside Russia since its requires the game to be modified to meet “region-specific changes to address player expectations.”
