Halo Might Not Be Out Of Reach For PC Fans
Except Halo has been out of Reach for quite some time.
To the best of our knowledge, Microsoft isn’t bringing any more Halo games to the PC. This sucks for anyone who may have enjoyed the first game on PC or suffered through that mess of a port that was the second.
Microsoft may not be supplying fans with their fix, but that’s not about to stop Spartans from appearing on the PC.

In order to bring the multiplayer of Halo 1 to 3 to the PC, devoted fans have been working on their own project by the name of Installation 01. This project has been built as it’s own game, making use of Halo assets to try and replicate the popular game-play of the series.
While there doesn’t seem to be a dedicated team behind the project, it looks like it being made by Halo fans from around the world. They are trying to release the project within 12 months but obviously the scope of this project means it could quite possibly take a lot longer.
The first thing you’re probably asking yourself is if this is even legal. Well, it turns out it is as the developers are abiding by Microsoft’s Fair Use Policy and Game Content Usage Rules.
“Everything in the game is fan created and can be legally downloaded and distributed in accordance with the Game COntent Usage Rules. We are not out to make any money, even to cover costs. The work is all a labor of love, our team gets nothing in return except the satisfaction of making the ultimate Halo tribute, and some portfolio building. “
In its current state, the project looks to be coming along quite nicely but it’ll be interesting to see if Microsoft decides to comment on it. While the developers may be playing by the rules, I wouldn’t be surprised if Microsoft wanted to instagib it.
