Halo: Reach - Fall 2010

OUT NOW!

New details: Holograms in Multiplayer and Forge World!



First let’s talk hologram. It’s simple to use – point your reticule where you’d like your holo-self to run and then press the left bumper to activate it. A spitting image of yourself, sporting the exact same armor, colors and weapon, will emerge and run directly to that point and persist for about 10 seconds or until killed. Your hologram can also do fun things like take a man cannon which can result in some crazy shenanigans. Holograms can be used in multiplayer, which has become one of my recent favorite things to do, in addition to tricking the AI in campaign or Firefight. The other day we played a game where pretty much everyone used holograms and it feels awesome to trick someone else but damn does it feel stupid when you fall for one yourself. I hear one of Sage’s tricks is to point straight down so his hologram stands perfectly still but then HE runs in a perfectly straight line to dupe his opponent.
Forge World:

Lots more info about Forge World @ http://www.bungie.net/News/content.a...ink=BWU_072310

All of the Special Edition Halo Reach items, including the Halo Reach Slim 360 Edition:

Amazon has the system for Pre-Order already: It's $399.99 and comes with the Limited Edition Slim System, 2 Limited Edition Controllers, a head set and the Standard Edition of Halo Reach (Weak. Come on MS, at least throw in the Limited Edition of Reach to keep the Limited Edition theme of the bundle going). The System also makes Halo related noises upon start up and when the disc drive opens.

Can't wait for this one, especially playing thru the main game on CO-OP and getting into Forge World.

Trailer dropped.

I can't wait for this one. I really enjoyed ODST so I'm looking forward to this.

I wonder if that is in-game or rendered.

I love all things Halo, but I really hope that was in game, which means they are working on a new engine. The old one is really showing its age.

Re: Halo: Reach - Fall 2010

Well it's about time they made a Halo game with good graphics! Honestly though, with games like Gears of War and Call of Duty, Halo really isn't much of a thought anymore. Most people, at least the ones I know, play it just because they feel they have to...it's Halo. I think we all played ODST like once and never touched it again, same with Halo 3. They really need a re-boot to get some fans back.

Bungie themselves say it's a in-game cutscene not CG.

Creative Director Marcus Lehto, and his Halo: Reach team knew it was gonna be a challenge to get it into fighting shape in just two months time, but they didnít want your first look to be CG footage.

You demand more from Bungie. So youíre getting a snippet of a cinematic.

False on pretty much this entire post.

Cut scenes are nice but gameplay is all that matters. Let's see some in game footage then we'll talk.

Is this going to be squad-based?

I know it's just a teaser trailer but that looked kinda boring. It did nothing to wow me into being hyped up for the game. Maybe once we see some gameplay vids i'll be more interested.

Right. Cut scenes don't tell us jack. Cut scenes almost always look better than the actually game play so there's no way to know what the actual game will be like.

I agree. Even though it was impressive that it was in game I really thought that there would have been some game play footage not just in game engine footage.

Hopefully there will be perks and customizations and levels in the new multiplayer. After CoD it's sometimes hard to go back to Halo.

Re: Halo: Reach - Fall 2010

I'm the opposite, I got really excited after watching the teaser trailer. It's just a cut scene so you can't say anything about the graphics but I loved the music.
That's going to be my most expected game of the fall/last third of the year. Right now I'm only focusing on Bioshock 2, I'm looking for something between Bioshock and Reach

"Spartans never die, they are just missing in action." Loved that line from the trailer. I'm also looking forward to fighting some Elites again.

So the USNC & Spartans lose Reach, how will that play out in a game? In the end, you can't win so what gives?

Maybe you have to fight through waves of Covenant to get to the evac point?

Re: Halo: Reach - Fall 2010

Was Master Chief involved at all in Reach? according to the books?

It would be great if somehow he shows up at the end...

Edit: I just checked this: http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/John-117 , the answer is yes.

Re: Halo: Reach - Fall 2010

Is Reach a FPS like Halo 3 and ODST or is it different?

Re: Halo: Reach - Fall 2010

I read that this is going to be the last Halo game. That can't be true, can it? I can't imagine Microsoft killing off their cash cow when they could still milk it for several more games.
