Halo Gets Updated With Better Visuals Thanks To Its Modding Community

DSOGaming writes: "The following video shows off the new graphical features that Halo modders have managed to implemented, such as updated bitmapping, shaders, better particle effects, and higher-poly models. In addition, the video comes with scenes from the vanilla version in order to further wow us with the overhauled visuals." (Halo: Combat Evolved, PC)

An unfair comparison.

This one is an old game with improvements from modders who only have love for the game and dedication to back them up. They did this for free in their spare time.

The other one is an old game with a lot of polish from a game company with the backing of millions of dollars and tons of staff. They did this for money and guess what: they might do this all over again for X Box One.

Modders continue to do great work, though I can't say this is a title I'd expect them to focus on.

Honestly, I thought it looked pretty bad, oversharpened textures everywhere make it an eyesore.

Awful and far too long video, but good work. I wish Halo PC was more active.

X game gets better visuals thanks to it's modding community. I, being a person that owns a real crappy PC, does not play games on it, but I never understood fan graphical updates. I feel like they often stray from the original art style of the game, but some are done by really dedicated fans that keep the art style fairly close to how it was; this one seems to be well done.

And if you still have windows 98 for some reason, you can play also.
