Halo Historic Scenes was a community project where UNSC and Covenant fanatics across the world came together to recreate iconic images taken directly from the annals of history. Using just the Halo 3 engine, these screenshots were carefully remade in Forge, matchmaking, and custom games, all in the easily recognizable Halo style.
