Halo 3 Beta on May 16!

Halo 3 Beta on May 16!

Bungie announced just a few minutes ago that the Beta of Halo 3 would be available on May 16. And just because they can, they also released this new Vidoc. Be aware though that this video is from the alpha build, the beta should already look quite a bit better.


Vidoc #2: Multiplayer

saw this earlier on Live, awesome indeed. Looks to be running pretty smooth considering it's from the Alpha version.

I think I just crapped my pants! Loving the shader work on the snow level and this is just the alpha build.....

I know it's an Alpha build, but it looks far from 'wow'...

There are certain details that look really great, but in general everything looks very familiar.

I'll reserve judgement until I see some final single player footage. Need Halo 3 now!

My comment refers to the snow level only. The other levels seemed okay to me but I know this is just alpha so Im sure (or should I say, I hope) it'll look a LOT better.

Yeah the snow looked great.

I just hope the multiplayer isn't a huge visual downgrade like the first GRAW, otherwise it will feel just like an upgraded Halo 2...

It's strange that bungie keep showing really early builds of halo 3...it's like a completely opposite approach to what they did with halo 2. Even in that brute doco thing they released before, they showed footage that was from a build months before that. There must be some reason for it.

May 16th is the week before my crucial exams, i've won a competition for my beta aswell as own crackdown for it, and im not even going to get to play it =/ Great :(
Commented on 2007-04-10 14:51:35
Well that settles it. I need to finish all my games before the 16th, and Guitar Hero will have to wait until summer.

I can't frickin' wait.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Destiny 2 comes out in September and they haven't even announced it. (2 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: Really looking forward to RDR2 but it's odd that we're like 7 months after the debut trailer and nothing else. Really wonder if they actually launch it this year too. (12 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Activision doesn't "own" Blizzard Entertainment. Activision Blizzard owns Blizzard Entertainment. They didn't buy Blizzard. That was a merger. (45 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There's a lot of internal politics at play at ActivisionBlizzard. I doubt killing the battle.net brand was a unanimous decision. (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's not like the sell it anymore anyway. "Very generous" seems a bit overstated. And what we know of their "free reign" is probably less than informed than you think. (47 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Blizzard giving the original StarCraft for free is very generous of them. Weird to think Activision owns it, even though Blizzard has free reign. One of the best onwed by one of the worst. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered's additions - more in the article - and the fact that Blizzard will make the original StarCraft free, and let players of the original play with those of the remastered is great. (4 Hours ago)
