Halo 3 was first released in 2007 and continues the story of the two previous titles in the series.
To refresh, the Xbox website lists the summary as follows: “Experience the return of the Master Chief to end the struggle between the Covenant, the Flood, and all of humanity in this dramatic, vibrant ending to the original Halo trilogy. ”
The fate of the galaxy is in your hands when the Master Chief returns to uncover an ancient secret. This hidden secret, hidden in the sand of Africa, could be the key to saving humanity – or destroying it.
PC-specific functions for Halo 3
Halo 3 has been fully optimized for the PC, so you can finally play Halo 3 with your mouse and keyboard. Halo 3 supports up to 4K UHD resolution with 60 FPS for the best gaming experience. Ultrawide support and FOV customization will also be part of the PC-specific functions.
Halo 3 contains all 11 missions that fans will know and love from the original Xbox 360 2007 title. Multiplayer features 24 cards and an updated progression system that has already benefited other titles in the Master Chief Collection.
Overall, this is the Halo title you fell in love with all those years ago – but with some additional improvements. Many people will only want to learn this for the pleasure of playing an FPS with a mouse and keyboard. Unlike other titles, this is less a remaster than an improved port. So if you have a bit of nostalgic itching, Halo 3 is the perfect way to scratch it.
