Halo 3 beta trailer

Halo 3 beta trailer

As you may already know, that little game called Halo 3 will be available as a beta in 5 days now. Part of the gaming press should get to play it starting today, but it doesn't seem like we will have the chance to be selected, so we will have to live with this nice trailer! I still have no news of the 100 invitations for the beta, please stop contacting about it.
Update: Looks like I've spoken too quickly since I'm downloading the beta as we speak. Expect lots of images and videos later tonight!

The game has great multiplayer but I'd like to see some campaign footage for a change.

looks fun. but seriously where is the single player and co-op? thats where all the fun i had was from. just hope after this beta comes out they will be releasing single player information and not just more multiplayer.

Considering what is going on (multiplayer) this looks awesome. The graphics aren't final and will get better according to Bungie. But MP graphics are always "Dumbed down" compared to the campaign (see GRAW, R6V etc).

The graphics are very good imo, you shouldn't be comparing this to GOW as they are totally different. GOW is awesome looking, but the maps are very small and even online it's only 4v4.

Compare this to Resistance: Fall of man online and I think Halo beta comes out on top, let alone the final product. Look at how Forza 2 graphics improved over the final few weeks of polish!

Can't wait personally :)

GoW looks better and thats a much older game

Out of sight. Same as they did with Halo 2, you saw nothing on Campaign until the preview the month before release.

Am I the only one that thinks this looks identical to halo 2? Aside from a few new additions, everything looks like it did in H2. The graphics, gameplay, music, etc.... all look identical to me. Granted I thought Halo 2 was an average title at best, so I dont exactly play it a lot, but I just dont see anything new here. Not like I was expecting atleast.

I agree, the graphics isn't bad but it's just not "good enough" as a sequel.
I think they need to fix the graphic more if they want to attract non-halo fan.

I applause bungie for keeping the core of halo gameplay with alot of new feature but the texture of the environment need some fixing, IMO.

Look realy awsome, but not stunning ...
Commented on 2007-05-11 10:17:40
OMG, is getting better and better each time they release new videos.
Yesss sir, this is good!
Commented on 2007-05-11 10:53:08
You guys know that the graphics for single player and multiplayer are a little different right? They lower the polys and effects so they can keep a solid framerate during chaotic multiplayer.

When the single player info starts to come out, You'll all shit your pants.
Commented on 2007-05-11 11:08:46
I think it looks fine, I am sure it will look better in motion. I hope they bring back the option to turn on infinite grenades like in halo 1, I don't think you can do it in 2.

Never was like "HOLY F*CK, HALO 3!!!!". But after seeing this.. it makes me wanna play :). Funny ending of the trailer ^^.
Commented on 2007-05-11 11:39:58
looks great for multi...loving the man cannon
Commented on 2007-05-11 12:04:45
Looks verry nice... Gameplay seems to be just awasome! Can't wait for the beta!
Commented on 2007-05-11 12:15:13
sticky grenades look a little too fast.....will sticking someone lose its appeal int he next gen>>
Commented on 2007-05-11 12:17:43
Looks fantastic, it has the same colour scheme and artistic style as Halo 2 because its a sequel but you can see the great improvements in lighting, texture work and level detail. Plus it really seems like all the additions on the weapon front are really cool and add to the game instead of being gimmicks.

It's the music.

You can't help but get the hairs on the back of your neck raise up..and scream

About the game

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (6 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks @MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (6 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (7 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (7 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (8 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (8 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (8 Hours ago)
