343 Industries announced that the public beta phase of Halo 3 for PC starts next month. More specifically, this phase for the classic shooter will start in the first half of June.
343 Industries said: ” Halo 3 will be Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC. We are already in the stage where early tests are conducted in the framework of the Ring 1. Next week we aim to pass is fully prepared for testing the Assembly in the hands of our partners, which is much earlier than usual. Our goal is to start public testing of Halo 3 in the first half of June”.
It is worth to note that Halo 3 in Halo: the Master Chief Collection is a remaster. In other words, don’t expect the same graphical modifications, which the audience got with Halo Anniversary and Halo 2 Anniversary. In addition, unlike Halo and Halo 2, it will be the first official launch of Halo 3 on the PC.
In Halo 3 the war reached its climax. The flood continues to increase the number and strength of their troops; the army of the Earth was scattered and almost destroyed, and the Covenant threatens to activate the Halo Ring, which is able to destroy all life in the galaxy. The objective of the Master chief is to stop the Covenant, destroy the impending Flood threat and ultimately save mankind. This is the final Chapter of the original trilogy of Halo.
After the release of Halo 3, the developers at 343 Industries are going to focus on Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4. This will be the last two games that will be released on PC: until now, the company has no plans to release on computers single-player campaign of Halo 5.
