Back in March 2015, we informed you about an official free-to-play online version of Halo 3. This project, called Halo Online, targeted Russian gamers and was officially coming from Microsoft. However, in August 2016, Microsoft announced its cancellation.
As you may have guessed, this did not stop PC players from unofficially restoring its content and features. Thus, ElDewrito was born. ElDewrito is described as a community-made mod for Halo Online allowing multiplayer games to be played in player-hosted servers and aims to restore removed features, fix bugs and glitches, and add mod support.
ElDewrito has multiple server browsers, player and emblem customization, stat tracking, ranked and social servers (as well as an in-beta ranking system). Anyone can host custom servers – as a host player, or with a built-in dedicated server functionality, along with map/gametype voting functionality.
This mod will be releasing April 20th and the team shared a brand new trailer in order to celebrate this announcement.
