If you don’t know, ElDewrito is a community-made project for Halo Online, standing as a mod that allows multiplayer games to be played in player-hosted servers. ElDewrito also aims to restore removed features and will bring mod support, and all of this will go live for PC on April 20th.
The Halo games are still going ever since the first implementation to the series that is Combat Evolved. However, some folks still want fresh Halo experiences while they wait for Halo 6.
Well, ElDewrito is a community-made mod for Halo Online, a Halo 3 derived free-to-play online FPS that didn’t get past closed beta testing in Russia that will be coming out in the next few days as ElDewrito 0.6.
ElDewrito allows multiplayer games to be played in player-hosted servers and is said to restore removed features, fix bugs and glitches, and offers full on mod support.
Multiple server browsers will be a thing, player and emblem customization is said to work, stat tracking is functional, and ranked and social servers — as well as an in-beta ranking system — will be in the game, too.
You can check out the newly posted release trailer for ElDewrito right here, showing various things in version 0.6.
The devs noted that anyone can host custom servers — as a host player, or with a built-in dedicated server functionality — along with map and gametype voting functionalities.
Folks following this very project will finally be able to give the whole thing a shot less than a week’s time from now, which means from the 20th on out it will only be about improving the mod’s experience through feedback.
Halo Online will be releasing for PC on the late afternoon of said date. If your curiosity has been piqued, and you wish to learn more or download the game at launch, you can head on over to eldewrito.com.
