Cool mod! Really enjoyed of my spartans being killed XD

Cones2002 @cones2002

Been really enjoying it. What's the next step with this mod or has it finished development?

efrenespartano @efrenespartano

The next step is to add more weapons and missions. We are currently working on a new, two-stage mission to replace the Spirits on Capital Ship assaults. Something like the Truth and Reconciliation mission!

Eventually, on the future, more Covenant units will appear, like Brutes and Hunters.

GlaiveSilver @glaivesilver

I got linked this by some folks in my stream server, and I'm *seriously* loving it even though it's still super early in development. Really looking forward to seeing how this progresses!

efrenespartano @efrenespartano

Tell your folks "thanks!" :D

The progress here is easier due the smaller scale. Our goal will be always a fun and fast paced game, focused on combat. So, don't worry about difficulty and intricate story arcs.

Go and make the Covenant pay for every inch of land in Reach!
