The Halo series is a beloved, well received, and commercially successful franchise with a huge fan-base, and a rich lore; but Halo 3, ODST, and Reach don’t get any special accolades for graphical fidelity; which is fine, that’s what series like: Uncharted, Gears of War, Killzone, Battlefield (PC), and Crysis are for.
And sometimes certain qualities compensate for other deficiencies, so while Halo may not be the most attractive lizard on the lot, that doesn’t really matter, since all it takes is a dedicated community to mod Halo’s Master Chief into Crysis 2, and suddenly that washed up whore has a whole new coat of makeup to hide behind.
Continue reading for 6 development photos, and info on the surprisingly deep story mode the modding community is incorporating into this Halo Crysis 2 mod.
“…the goal of Venerance is to create a very immersive first-person experience in the Halo universe, based heavily on the events that occurred on Sigma Octanus IV as seen in “The Fall of Reach” by Eric Nylund. You will play as a member of Blue Team during those events, groundside. The mod will be geared towards very high-end gaming PCs, and will place the priorities of quality and zero-financial-cost over the priority of how soon it is finished.
Venerance is for the fans, by the fans, and in tribute to the human beings that brought and bring us the Halo universe we know and love, Bungie Studios and 343 Industries.”
The mods story specifically will follow the Halo novel “Fall of Reach” chapters 19-22.
