Mac Halo Total Conversion In Development
7:52 AM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story

A small group of Halo modders have teamed together to create a new mod for Windows and Mac versions of Halo. Open Rebellion plans to be the first Halo mod that includes a believable storyline to go along with the modifications. At a basic level, this total conversion will allow players to play as the Covenant on the single player maps. However, the long term plans are much more ambitious. According to the lead developer every map and item will be converted, with the addition of several new weapons and items.

Here's what the team leader had to say about new items:

Among the imense amount of conversions we are making, we are also adding new items. This includes existing Covenant weapons such as the energy sword, and new ones like a Covenant sniper rifle and a powerful pistol, indeed equal to its human counterpart. This gives you, the player, much more capability. Why be restricted to a plasma rifle and needler? Well, with this mod, you don't have to.
If any Mac gamers are wary about other mods that have been limited to Windows users, don't worry:
Our mod will be 100% compatible with both Mac and Windows versions of Halo, giving everyone a chance to easily experience this modification.
