Who’s ready for some shiny new Unreal Engine 5 remake action? Of course you are, that’s why you’re here, and oh boy is that a good one.
As reported by DSOGaming, indie developer Gearshift Media has released a wonderful demo of their Halo 3: ODST remake, that, yes, you can actually play and experience for yourself. The demo was titled drop zoneand is completely free to download.
Or, if you want to see what it would look like if you changed Master Chief to God of the wartake a look below (and prepare for chaos).
Gearshift Media has also released a trailer for the demo, so if your PC isn’t powerful enough to handle running the real thing, fear not. New Mombasa has never looked better, and we can only hope that if the game is officially remade, it will look as good as this one. Take a look for yourself below.
“drop zone is a 15-30 minute narrative and exploration experience that lets you explore a never-before-seen piece of New Mombasa,” the description reads. “As an ODST, you can explore and find the narrative behind the environment, or just wander around and take in the atmosphere. It’s your choice! Put on headphones, sit back and enjoy an immersive experience through a reimagining of one of the best sets in video game history!
While there’s no combat included in the demo, there are apparently a bunch of hidden items you can collect as you experience the story. Either way, it’s certainly worth half an hour of any Halo fan’s time, so be sure to give it a try if you’re interested – you can download it from the developer’s Itch.io page, here.
If you can’t get enough Halo in Unreal Engine 5, you can also check out The Zeta Halo Experience, which is a fully explorable level that you can download and play on your own. The creator, Infinite Forges, said: “The story behind the level [is that] at an unknown location Zeta Halothe leader was sent to search for the spine of the ring now visible due to the destruction of the ring, hoping to discover [more] about this ancient alien technology. You can download Zeta Halo here.
