The Halo Trial is the demo version for the popular Halo: Combat Evolved, for both PC and Mac. It features the campaign level, the Silent Cartographer, and the multiplayer level, Blood Gulch for online play.

Campaign

Only the Silent Cartographer mission can be played in the Halo Trial. Similar to Halo: Combat Evolved, the level features similar environment, weapons and enemies. However, players would not be able to save the level, as doing so will restart the level.

Multiplayer

Blood Gulch is the only map featured in the game with the capability of hosting up to sixteen players per game. In contrast to Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo Trial's version retains similar weapons and vehicles but features low graphics settings, as players are encouraged to buy the full version. There are only two gametypes: CTF Classic (First to 3 Flag Captures) and Free-For-All Slayer (First to 25 Kills).

Trivia

  • When the player closes the demo, an advertisement for the full Halo PC appears, which features Sergeant Johnson telling (almost ordering) the player to buy a copy of the full version. However, one can simply bypass the advertisement by pressing Alt + F4 or Ctrl + Alt + Delete and ending the program, or by using the -novideo command line parameter on a windows. On a Mac, the player can just press Escape or Enter. The video can also be removed by deleting the demo.bik file in the program files.
  • The demo contains all of the weapons from the full version. Fuel Rod Canons & Flamethrowers for Multiplayer and Snipers are only in Multiplayer. It also contains half of the vehicles of single player, but has a Rocket Warthog and Banshee for Multiplayer matters.
  • Halo: Combat Evolved Trial has maintained incredible popularity since its release in 2003.
  • Players can join Blood Gulch maps with different gametypes hosted by players with the full version even though the demo allows the player to make a Slayer and Capture the Flag server only.

A Trial is a type of mission arc that is similar to a Task Force/Strike Force but with fewer missions. Trials contain unusual encounters with enemies that require a high level of cooperation between team members to conquer. Special rewards are given at the end of trials, such as respecifications or enhancements that affect multiple attributes. Most contain a timed finale mission.

Types of Trials

Trials can typically be categorized into three types:

Standard Trials

Standard trials consist of only 1 or 2 missions. The first mission is typically a hunt task (Defeat X), and the second mission is the trial proper.

Respecification (Respec) Trial

Respecification trials typically consist of 3 missions. The first two missions are standard missions (Defeat <boss> and his crew, Defeat X Enemies, etc.). The third mission is the trial proper, which involves defending an objective (heroes) or defeating an objective (villains). These are the only trials that can grant a Power Respecification upon completion.

Supergroup Trial

A Supergroup Trial is performed by a supergroup in order to obtain an Item of Power. These Items of Power give a global benefit to all supergroup members until it is lost in a base raid or the Item of Power expires (up to 30 days). Supergroup trials are currently inactive due to flaws in the base raiding system.

Trial Requirements

Each trial has a minimum team size and a maximum level cap. Trials cannot be outleveled because high level teammates are automatically exemplared down. Special contacts are required to begin the trial but anyone of the proper level with the proper size team may talk to the contact. The trial will spawn enemies at the maximum level every time. They may be run multiple times.

While running a trial, none of the team's other missions are available to them. Once the trial has been formed, you must continue to run the trial until you finish it or drop from it.

Trials have badges associated with them and often have unique mobs, maps, or both.

Rewards

Each team member chooses a reward upon completion of a trial. The respecification trials offer the options of a Pool D Recipe drop, a respec, or one of the usual origin-appropriate enhancements. (The respecification option can only be selected 3 times per character). The other trials grant other choices, including recipes from other tables, "monster" enhancements or the standard single origin enhancement. Monster enhancements are not available choices for characters exemplared to the Abandoned Sewer Trial.
