9:23 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story
GameSpy has been given the chance to play the PC version of Halo: Combat Evolved, currently being ported to the PC by GearBox Software. Their hands-on experience with this version of Bungie's highly acclaimed Xbox game ended up in two preview articles, one focusing on singleplayer and one on the multiplayer aspect of the game.
They have confirmed there will be some changes in the multiplayer game, such as the addition of six new maps and tweaks to the vehicles.
From the multiplayer preview:
On the topic of vehicles, two significant additions being made for Halo's multiplayer. The first is the Rocket Warthog, which is basically your standard M12 LRV Warthog with a mounted missile launcher in the back instead of the usual M41 chaingun. The other big change: you'll be able to fly the Covenant Banshee fighter in multiplayer, something you couldn't do on the Xbox.There is much more to read about this game in the full previews, just follow the links provided below.
The PC version is feature-complete, according to the articles, and it is expected to be out by late summer for PC. The Mac version is being handled by Westlake Interactive and will hopefully be out just a short while after the PC version. The Macintosh version will be published by MacSoft.
