Bungie.net has a new feature on the Warthog in Halo 3. New screens, specs, and remarks from the field after the jump.
Oh, and by the way, here's the cryptic message found in the Quicktime animation:
x.xx.713>ghost.713/non-aut h/activity ongoing
As to what it actually means is anyone's guess.
maybe some big announcement on july 13th?? that would be my guess... maybe the start of the beta, but that seems a bit late considering they said spring. Anyhow, the screenies of the warthog at the bottom look a helluva lot better than those shots we saw from the prealpha...
This is what people are supposed to spend $120.00 on? please...
Doesnt spring end in August? This really doesnt say anything different from what everyone knows... Except the whole Snow one and the 4 passanger... Hopefully I dont see that on Skirmish only in bigteam battle... I dont wanna see a whole team in one Hog someone shoots a rocket and gets a killtac.... It would be dumb... I dont like how they keep saying alot of info I would rather have no clue going into halo3 of what to expect but what can you do...??
Last time I checked, August was the end of Summer, and the beginning of Fall.
As for the ghost thing, maybe you're right. I remember ghosting operating systems onto PC's from a network when I was younger. Maybe they'll be ghosting the Halo 3 Beta onto our HDD's? ;)
The Snowhog and the passenger Hog were old prototypes that Bungie revieled long before Halo 2's release, sadly (along with the ATV) never served a real purpose gameplay wise in Halo 2, so they removed them.
Hres the old render.
I didn't know that the weapons on the Warthog were going to be detachable. That is pretty cool. And I wonder what the wench on the one version would be used for? The pics of it look realllllly good though. (drool) MMMmmm...
One word: awesome.
The Grunts better run, lol.
about a Micro$oft game, DAMN unbelievable. 8~0
looks pretty snazy, still need to see it in motion though. Also I hope they have different skins for different environments like snow and jungle. This one would just look out of place.
My guess is that they'll keep showing little shots and tidbits like this till E3, were they'll show ANOTHER INGAME trailer.
One could only hope, eh?
Hopefully we'll have the Beta before then, though.
Didnt you hear July 13th is the day of the MS E3 press conference :p
On a different note, the graphics on the warthog render have come a LONG WAY! looks way better than the warthog in the pre-alpha screens. This is most promising
IF you read the article it CONFIRMS the warthog variations slated for Halo 2 in Halo 3 (passenger hog, ice hog and jungle hog as well as the guass and LAG hog)WOOOO!
I want to bust heads and kick @$$ in right now...this very moment...fellow Halo gamers who's with me!?!?!?
Am I the only one who thinks detachable turret = walking around with the Hog's chain gun/gauss cannon? F*ck yeah!
I love my 360 but this game blows dirty man stick!
Can't wait to see some in-game footage. I want to see how it looks in action, pictures are meh.
I'm gonna get so bashed for this!
Halo 3 will be the most overhyped game of all time! Halo 1 and 2 weren't mediocre enough for you people? You want more of what's already been done? FINE! Bring on the mediocrity!
This game will suck! It might be pretty but thats it. The gameplay will suck like one and two. Can I get an AMEN!!
Becuase last time I checked Killzone was overhyped to death.
ignorant buddy can suck on my man pole! LOL ;~)
yeh what did they say about killzone? that it would kill halo 2? HA look how that turned out!
as the new Warthog, WOW! :~D
Ya gotta love the Warthog.
"Now if only there was some way to make them indestructible… "
X button? haha i wish! i can dream :P
...it would be cool if you could have some kind of shield for your Warthog like u saw Master Chief had in that commercial in december. That was some kind of shield grenade though...and a shield for a whole moving warthog sounds a bit hard to to and a bit strange...I would get it if the covenant had that technology for their tanks or something..
But a way to make the "hog" indestructible for 10 seconds or so could be fun.
It looks awesome.
game any longer. Let's get it out.
