A still from the teaser ad. Scroll down to story images to see the new pic.
If that is what the game will look like I am sold. I have never played a Halo game even though i owned a XBox, but this looks awesome. I hope it is a Gears of War killer in the visual department, because GOW is a visual feast, I have beat the game 4 times just to go through and look at all of the scenery and visuals. Truly next gen
It is a CGI trailer, not actual gameplay.
That is just rediculous. Utter beauty. and i do think it is CGI, but bungie says it will still look similar. this picture rapes anything, CGI or not. Andd the grass is actually grassy. woow.
fall for these as well? lol
This is the first time Bungie has EVER used CGI. HAlo 2 used in-engine displays to create the cutscenes and everything.
This isn't the first time they released non-gameplay pics to hype their product.
I shooting for al least 70% of this still.
1.1 you see the power of it though, 90% of consumers will have the same reaction as #1 is't how Sony won last gen it'll be interesting how far MS and Bungie will push the 360 to get as close as they can to this because it's microsofts style to strive for the impossible.
This has to be CGI, it just look too good and cinamatic, but hopefully they will pull off MC looking like that.
It is CG but it uses Halo 3 Models.
But who cares this still looks freaking awesome, My New Desktop background.
Best pic yet!
If you look at images of GOW back at E3'05 and look at them now there's a huge difference on the visual side! Now if you look at the Halo scans this month you can already tell they look way better than the 1st GOW shots and will only improve over time! Don't be surprised if that screen above is what the game will actually look like because bungie doesn't do the cgi thing! The 360 is a beast and if developers keep on pushing it we will see things that just aren't possible on other consoles!
They should make the Halo movie using CGI!
Master Chief has *gasp* BATTLE DAMAGE!! He's all scratched up. :-O
well the trailer I heard was gonna be CGI, if I'm wrong correct me, and that's okay because it's bungie. Considering the E3 trailer was 100% gameplay, and that looked amazing. Now the game will ship about 1 year and 5 months later, how can you be dissapointed with that.
Actually I was under the impression that the trailer was to use in-game engine but was to be scripted much like the GOW trailer that is all over TV was. The net result is the trailer would look better and smoother but graphically should be similar (but not exactly) as what actual game should be like. If I can find the link I will post it.
well yah actually I was hoping it'd be cutscene material. That's basically what you described, it's somewhere inbetween. For example the gears commercial has the guy make facial expressions and stuff that couldn't be done ingame.
FYI its a CG trailer created by digital domain and will air on tv starting december 4th during an NFL game. It will shortly be put on the marketplace. Bungie didn't have time to make a trailer using ingame engine so they let digital domain create one as you see with the halo wars trailer they are good.
Shotty you are correct. As I recall now they let DD have in game assets to use, etc... but it is CGI.
Its CGI!!! You guys can hope and pray all you want but Gears of War is going to reign as the best looking xbox360 game for a long time. Especially if the screenshots of the game in that egm were any indication. Also the in-game pic they showed from single player is so inferior to this its not even funny. Now the game is definitely going to be amazing but give it a rest guys Gears for the Graphics Halo for the Gameplay.
well gow is the best looking game out right now, without a doubt. But the whole GOW comment is just to instigate so go away, your pathetic. You've obviously haven't seen Mass Effect or Assassins creed.
""because it's microsofts style to strive for the impossible." HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA oh man that was the best comment i have read in ages thanks for that.
Wouldn't it be funny if Halo 3 was crap? (It probably won't be)
"It is CG but it uses Halo 3 Models" That doesnt mean a thing. Im going to try to explain why first I work as a 3D artist at a Ad Agency. The software I use is a combination of 3Ds Max and Maya. I just got done making a model of a human body that shows the effects of Crystal Meth on the brain this was for a website so I did it very low poly. Now this week we want to use the same model for a TV commercial but its going to have to look a lot better so im using the "Same Model" but using smoothing modifiers and V-ray it looks about a 1000 times better than the web one. So sure they are probably using the bungie model with the kinetik system that is already built in to it but they are upgrading everything from the polygon count to the actual rendering a 100 time over the in-game model.
Mass Effect and Assasins Creed look awesome definitely next gen stuff but come on Gears is just awe inspiring its so good looking. Assasing Creed and Mass Effect are more amazing for the leaps they are taking with gameplay and character interaction.
And..Im not bashing Halo the first two games are incredible and this one is definitely going to be too. Im just saying keep the hype in check and try to use more facts.
how many developers they have working on the game? I bet it's larger than any production in South Dakota...probably 121 or more.
yah actually I was astonished to see how Gears had a MIcrosoft studios intro in the beginning like they had their own people help make the game. So since microsoft owns bungie now I wonder, but it hardly matters because you know this game is gonna be insane.
This game will push the 360 to the limits.
The wire cable reel on the front of the Warthog looks shoddy.
That the trailer is CGI, just to clear up all the confusion. Just check one of the previous Weekly Updates.
It's ok man 99% of the people on this site knows bungie anounced this was comming and going to be CGI for the purpose of telling the story better. You come in here trying to prove a point that doesn't make sense. A couple of people didn't get the CGI news and a couple of people are stoked about Bungie saying they'll do their best to include some of the graphical bliss in this ad in the HAlo game. Why are you so angry? anyways i'm glad you ran out of bubbles.
i think im in love
