Everyone of you have probably seen the Halo 3 ad, and thanks to the XCN, we can now offer some high quality pictures of the mysterious and very detailed scene. Inside you'll also find some more info about the creation of it.

Very detailed and impressive as such. As for any other opinions i might have, i guess i'd better shut up to avoid flaming ;)

this is a nice piece of artwork. my favorite aspects are the smoke, fire, and muzzle flash effects. I think the Believe campaign is a great marketing tool, and i hope we get to play out this battle in the game.

I'm a big fan, but this doesn't do it for me. The ending to the commercial was nice, though.

It looks very good, quite an attempt to be dramatic.
I just don't understand the 'believe' phrase in regards to the series. 'Finish the fight' makes much more sense to me. 'Believe' just seems like it's being taken from NeoGaf. :-/

Well the whole thing was amazing, but the music was a bit pessimistic...Personally i thing it would be better, if the music was from a band named...Diorama...

I think the Diorama works perfectly for this series; i mean they're really trying to make the player care for this whole situation and frankly, no one ever cared for the campaign before...

halo 3 is cool

What an incredible piece of artwork. I love this quote right here:

"Uniquely, the campaign experience does not focus on 'Halo 3’s' graphics or gameplay, but instead looks at the themes that lie at the heart of the tale that spans the entire 'Halo' trilogy: duty, sacrifice, and most importantly, heroism."

Such a true assertion that so many critics fail to realize. The story of Halo is one of the best Sci-Fi tales created. And because it's a game and not a novel or a movie, you not only are told the story but you are directly involved in the unravellings of the story. This series has captured that aspect of emotion and drama that few before it has and that is the reason why Halo will go down in history.

First off..Halo was famous because of it's multiplayer, but now..They are using the storyline and actually selling it. I've read all the books and to think that the game might finally have a good single player storyline..makes me jump with joy. Co-op HERE I COME!

I would love to get into gaming ''the tabletop'' - but with these larger figures - outdoors! and use airsoft weapons on 'em!

About the game


What's up?
  • HR2
    HR2 @KORNdog: the graphics style and the camera angels remind me of The Order 1886. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog some raw "gameplay" [url] (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog [url] planet of the apes game looks so bad. (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: oh, i didn't know about the app. But I know that it's their way to go against piracy. (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts For 1080p, you need the "4220", "5400" or higher Video Bitrate options. It's a very well know restriction that has been like this for many years. You can Google about it if you want. (17 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But shows like Orange is the New Black, Iron Fist, and a few others I tried this time around only have the "2740" or "3000" Video Bitrate options, meaning 720p resolution. (17 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If you need to check what resolution you're getting, just press "Ctrl + Alt + Shift + D" for the A/V Stats screen to come up. You can override/force quality with "Ctrl + Alt + Shift + S". (17 Hours ago)
