About Us

Installation 01 is a fan-made Halo game being made by Halo lovers working from around the world. We aim to build an artistic tribute to Halo that recreates the multiplayer experience of the Bungie-era games. The game will be free to play on all PC platforms, including: Windows, macOS, and Linux.

We operate very carefully under Microsoft's Game Content Usage Rules. All of Installation 01's assets are either created from scratch or obtained through the Unity Asset Store. We currently maintain a level of contact with Microsoft Studios and 343 Industries, which you can read about here.

The game is a combination of what we believe to be the best parts of the classic Bungie-era Halo games. While we mostly focus on recreating the Halo 2/3 experience, there are also elements of Combat Evolved and Reach sprinkled in. Features from later 343 Industries Halo games can be enabled in Custom Games, but will not be a part of Matchmaking or official playlists.

Installation 01 is built on top of the Unity engine. It can run smoothly on even some of the lowest-end hardware while still looking beautiful on high-end machines. Here are the minimum and recommended specs as of August, 2017. They may change in the future.

Minimum (DirectX & OpenGL)

Pretty much the bare minimum specs. We wouldn't recommend going any lower, but that doesn't mean you can't try.

  • Intel Core 2 Duo / AMD Athlon 64 X2
  • Nvidia GTX 260 / Radeon HD 5670 / Intel HD 3000
  • 4GB of RAM

Minimum (Vulkan)

The actual minimum required specs to use the Vulkan graphics API, and a good middle of the road choice.

  • Intel Core i3 / AMD Phenom II X4
  • Nvidia GTX 660 / Radeon HD 7770 / Intel HD 4000
  • 4GB of RAM

Recommended

If you want to have the best possible experience, pick up the latest hardware and at least 8GB of RAM.

  • Intel Core i5 / AMD Ryzen 5
  • Nvidia GTX 1060 3GB / AMD RX 570
  • 8GB of RAM
