Images and artworks of Halo 3

Images and artworks of Halo 3

Here is a bunch of stuff from Halo 3, where mostly of it should be named as "old". Even though, I think you can find some interesting stuff in there. We got some high-resolution versions of the "old" multiplayer images, some high-quality TV ad captures and a pile of player models and artworks inside.

Concept art for the auto-turrets on Snowbound.

It looks to be an upgraded version of a Covenant artillary placement. Remember in the 1st Halo? The grunts used to sit in these things and fire at you.

they are auto-turrets which are on the outside area of that snow map... I assume they shoot you if you go out of bounds.. nothing crazy but seems interesting.

Thanks for the high res images guys, I love working on these.

Is that a spike-granade flying through the air in mp-pic 2?!
Looks very brute-ish!

They should use more polys, cuz bump-maping does not replace them!!
Environment looks edgy!

Lighting and normal maps will flesh it out a lot more.

something that might be cool would be if you used the mongoose's speed to outrun the turents laserblast as long as you could the record i think might be..hm. 1.2 seconds?

Hmm is that a nuke mushroom cloud in the first and last picture ? Or maybe something to do with that huge device buried under the earth in the first trailer...

Save all the visuals for later. Gameplay is all I'm interested in right now. There are too many awesome looking games with gameplay that doesn't match up. I hoping Bungie is innovative enough to be able to come up with really unique gameplay for the game. Maybe they should make it 3rd person and include cover and blind fire... ok, I was just teasing.

Isn't that the Spartan Laser?
Commented on 2006-12-13 20:36:30 In reply to darkc
Spartan Laser. Vehicle Destroyer (mostly). Takes a few seconds to charge once you pull the trigger, then blasts a lethal (but short) laser blast with near pin-point accuracy. Apparently it kills anything it hits.

This is MY boom stick, to go along with my Anti-SoB stick.

Nice images. hadn't seen the last artwork before.

Multiplayer looks like Halo 2. :|

I have to say, after Halo 2 being pretty much a huge letdown, I'm not as excited about this as I could be
They better pull all the tricks out of the hat for this supposidly last installment of the series
Also I know everyone may jump on me about it, but the game didn't have the lifespan as Halo 1 nor the sheer amount of fun the first had as well. The first one didn't even have online play and I enjoyed it a lot more
They got too involved in creating dual wielding and a good online ranking system, and forgot the core game in my opinion
It was a good solid game, but nothing stood out
Commented on 2006-12-13 20:38:43
Also in the interview on Joystiq I believe it was, they said they werent even sure if the Spartan Laser was even going to make it to the final game since it's a pretty cheap gun as it stands now

Thats just the 'nothing is final until its final' line. They're going to be continually tweaking the way the game plays over the next 11 months or so until it goes gold.

If they find that something just ends up being sucky or useless and they take it out, they're protecting themselves from people after launch saying 'where is this <insert gun/vehicle etc here>, you PROMISED it would be in the game!?' they can then just point out that they never did promise that and even said 'it may not make it into the game.'

Its really just bringing the realities of game development to the lay-man, who often expects that if they see something in a picture or trailer way before release, it will definately be in the game. Which is most often, not the case.

btw, Tinks, i'd be willing to bet that most people played Halo 2 more than they did Halo 1, but all that playing was compressed into a shorter period of time.

not to flame or anything, but i can help but disagree with you. Maybe Halo2 didn't last long for you, but for the general public, the ones who are still making it the number 2 most played game on XBOX Live, the lifespan has been longer than Halo1. The single player admittedly wasn't as fun as Halo1, but multiplayer, even offline, upped the bar in many peoples opinion. As for the "core" gameplay, in my opinion it hasn't changed much. fall damage and shield has been updated. other than that the core remains the same. The updated sheild has been copied by countless games already. Halo2 was far from a letdown in my book. Alas, this is all a matter of opinion.

I'm with you here. I hear this pretty often, that Halo 2 was some sort of step backwards for bungie, but I think Halo 2 stands on its own pretty well. Great level design (mp), the best and most important XBL game (maybe ever) and a compelling campaign..great game.

I hope we'll see some gameplay videos soon, perhaps with some more graphical effects turned on?

the gun is reminiscent of the RCP90
Commented on 2006-12-14 05:15:59
BTW, Bungie stated in one of their weekly updates that they are still mostly using placeholder textures from Halo 2.

So you can pretty much expect the final game to look much, much nicer.

    Tiz I love em both to be honest. When I start playing either of them, I'm glued for a while albeit for different reasons. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz As someone who has a fair amount of hours in both Halo & Overwatch, I'd say they both scratch different itches, but Overwatch has the broader appeal. (1 Hour ago)
