Halo 2 multiplayer came to an end when Microsoft closed the official game servers in February 2013, or so we thought. Thanks to a community initiative called “Project Cartographer” Halo 2 multiplayer is now a thing again for PC players.
Some benefits of the system include:
- Dedicated Servers
- Peer Hosted Games
- FOV changer
- Mouse Fix (no more mouse lag or slow sensitivity)
- Custom Resolution support (includes 4k)
- Xbox 360 and Xbox One Controller Support
- Controller Remapping (Duranzo)
- New launcher
More features are promised but they are being added over time, the player base is still relatively small for a AAA title, but at approximately 100 players the community effort to bring Halo 2 multiplayer back to life is off to a promising start.
