At GAMINGbible, the ingenuity of modders never fails to astound us and we simply must share this stunning creation that puts you literally in the driver’s seat of the iconic Warthog run in Halo 3.
This is the work of Reddit user Dyortos who received a raucous reception when they uploaded the gameplay to the series' subreddit. “A gift from the gods?” mused one. “All anybody wants out of life is to play Halo in VR,” added another. With this mod, the chaos of the run is elevated to a new level as the player’s view shakes from explosions and the sheer speed of the vehicle.
You are right in the thick of the action as panels clatter into the air like kitchen tiles and smoke obscures your vision, and the unmistakable theme punctuates this do-or-die moment with desperation and optimism. This is Halo 3 like you’ve never seen it before.
We got a chance to chance to Jeff Steitzer, the voice behind the series' incredible announcer, about the video game industry and representation across the medium. Check it out here!
While it is possible that players will get a proper virtual reality release for the Master Chief Collection, Dyortos is pretty pleased with their efforts. “It was by far the most intense Halo experience I think I've ever had. This is the closest thing to Halo VR currently,” they said, explaining how they had managed to recreate the pivotal scene in virtual reality. This is the game running in a program called vorpX, which does sound like something from one of the Matrix movies.
Supporting over 250 titles from Grand Theft Auto V to Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, it was then the task of this modder to modify the map files to put the player into a first-person perspective on the Warthog, and the tracking lets them look at their surroundings in a naturalistic way. This recipe for success immerses you in the action of this scene and even lets you notice new details. Like, did you know the dashboard actually records the speed of the vehicle?
