Microsoft and 343 Industries have launched the closed beta phase for Halo 3. As such, we’ve decided to capture some screenshots in 4K and on Max settings, and share them with you. These screenshots will give you an idea of the PC graphics that you can expect from this native PC version of Halo 3.
In Halo 3, players will experience the gripping conclusion to the Human-Covenant War as Master Chief returns to finish the fight. Earth’s defenses are all but crushed and Master Chief’s AI companion, Cortana, is still trapped in the clutches of the Gravemind. Amidst the chaos though, the Covenant occupation of Earth has uncovered a massive and ancient object beneath the African sands; an object that can turn the tide of war.
Players will battle online with fellow Spartans in a multiplayer experience that became a global sensation. Players will also fight across 24 legendary maps, create new ways to play with the iconic Forge tool and utilize theatre mode to capture and share your favorite moments with the community.
Halo 3 PC will include up to 4K UHD resolution and HDR. Furthermore, the PC version supports mouse and keyboard, as well as other native PC features (like a FOV slider and uncapped framerates).
To be honest, I thought Halo 3 PC would look more dated than it actually looks. While the game did not receive any Remaster treatment like the first two Halo games did, it can still look good in 4K and on Max settings.
There is currently no ETA on when Halo 3 will come out. However, I’m certain that PC gamers will be able to play it later this Summer (once its beta flighting has ended).
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
