Introduction:Installation 01 is a PC-exclusive Halo game being developed by a small, talented group of fans. Our goal is to return Halo to it's core, arena-based multiplayer, finding the perfect balance between Halo: CE, 2 and 3. However, make no mistake: we have an intricate story-mode planned for the lore-lovers, as well.
What is Installation 01?Installation 01 is a PC-exclusive Halo game that will be 100% free-to-play. Our goal is to deliver a true Halo-experience on the PC platform that will be accessible to as many people as possible. The game is extremely early in development, so there aren't many details I can share with you. But you can expect me to update you along the way. A public beta is planned for the future. Date undetermined. Truthfully, this game is made FOR the fans. Our 19-man team is extremely talented and dedicated, and are making this game with a unified love of Halo.
Plans for the future:Like I've said, we are extremely early in development, but we do have some sort of layout planned for the game. In terms of gamemodes, you can expect your beloved Campaign, Multiplayer and Firefight options all available to you. For multiplayer, the standard CTF, Slayer and KotH game modes all make a return.
We also have multiple series planned on our YouTube page, such as:
-"Making of 'Installation 01'" - A series dedicated to provided our fans with gameplay updates on a bi-monthly basis to show progress in development. This will be extremely cool when the game is fully released and you can watch them all one after the other and see the gradual progression of the game. Should be 1-2 minutes in length, each.
-"Music of 'Installation 01'" - A series which purpose is to release the game's soundtrack to the general public. Descriptions of each composition will include the usage and placement of the song. For example, if you're playing the third level of the campaign, and you hear a song you really enjoy, you can find it in the description of the video, saying "This song plays in Mission 3 of the Campaign - Checkpoint Beta". For a reference, I, the primary composer have released this to showcase what the soundtrack will be like.Into Dust - Installation 01 Track
-"Developer Diaries/Video Documentaries" - Pretty much your standard videos you see developers upload. The rate at which we upload these will increase as we get closer to the launch of the game. Look forward to updates from me about this!

A: Free. We're not legally allowed to make a profit off of this, and why would we charge you in the first place? This is our gift to the Halo community.
Q: What game modes will be in Installation 01?
A: Currently we have a campaign and multiplayer, and firefight-esque mode planned. Things can always change, but these features are basically set in stone. If you were referring to gametypes, expect standard Halo gametypes such as CTF, Slayer, ect.

A: It is an early build. None of this represents the final product.
Q: Will the campaign be canon?
A: We have some of the top Halo-experts working on the campaign to ensure we don't break any of the established canon. Stay tuned for story-related details!
