New Halo Reach Mod Enables Third-Person View in Campaign
A new PC Halo Reach mod uploaded on NexusMods by user AkFumbles enables third-person view in the game's campaign mode.
In order to do so, you'll have to go into your game's installation folder, move into the maps directory and replace the original map files. As always in these cases, it is a good idea to back up those files somewhere else before performing the Halo Reach mod for third-person. Of course, you'll also need to launch the Anticheat disabled version of the game.
Sadly, it is unlikely this will be ever possible on multiplayer maps made with the Forge tool. That's because, according to the author of the mod, the map files have to be tweaked individually in order to work in third-person view and to do so would be simply impossible given the number of multiplayer maps made with Forge. However, AkFumbles promised to release his Halo Reach mod for the Firefight co-op maps; there is no ETA on when they'll be available, though.
This isn't the first mod released by Halo Reach, even though the game only launched on PC in early December. We've already covered the character customization unlock mod and the maps megapack/Reach Evolved overhaul, and this is just the beginning of the modding scene. Stay tuned on Wccftech for more great Halo Reach mods.
