These are the official Halo Reach screenshots and concept art posted by Bungie.

The story is too old to be commented.

These are what people have been waiting for!

Looks how detailed the Marine is in this picture!

I have to admit, it looks great so far. And is it true these are just pre-alpha or alpha screens?

MerkinMax3243d ago

Bungie confirmed it on Twitter and on their Forums.

Halo: Reach, it only does everything

Looks awesome. I really like this screenshot
A lot more dynamic lights are being used and I think that will really add to the atmosphere.

Skip_Bayless3243d ago

Modern Warfare 2 still looks better and it's multiplatform. I don't care if it's pre-alpha. Developers can say anything. Given there track record they haven't proven me anything.

gamer20103243d ago

There is no way Modern Warfare 2 looks better. The textures and lighting are both superior in Halo Reach.

Halo Reach
Modern Warfare 2

Don't get me wrong Modern Warfare 2 is one of the best looking FPS, but Halo Reach is simply more graphically advanced.

No, MW2 looks better in those pics. Halo Reach ground textures are mediocre not even average. And the spartans(or whatever they are) are bland with not that many colors. Halo has always had lighting and Halo 3 was one of the most glossiest games, so what do they bring to the table this time with Halo Reach?

This game looks old school lol

Disccordia3243d ago

This has potential but the problem I have with all these screenshots (and I really don't know why NOBODY has ever mentioned this) is that whilst they are claiming to be using the game engine, none of them are actually in-game shots; There is not a single photo with a HUD and a gun. A couple blurry said shots popped up a few months back and they looked not much different from what we've seen before and until I've seen something official, there's no way I can judge what this will end up looking like..

The difference with Killzone 2 was that, although screenshots like the above are so called 'bullshots' (just like these Halo: Reach pics in this article), they went on to prove that in game graphics were of a similar quality. Bungie haven't proved any such thing yet so I think it's reasonable to say KZ2 still sets the standards for FPS. Lets just wait and see..

@ heroprotagonist

Thanks for making such a great post, dude.
All your points are factual and your logical arguments are well constructed.

I agree with your screenshot comparison too... the textures in kz2 in those screens really tell the story... and it ain't what's been perpetuated by the sony fanboys.

ON topic:
These Halo reach screenshots look absolutely fabulous in HD.
I am reaaally looking forward to this game.

No doubt there are over 10+ million others just like me.

Look at the fear Halo Reach creates for pre alpha screens, now imagine that fear close to release.

starchild3243d ago

Good observation. They know Halo Reach looks incredible and they know the kind of quality Bungie is known for; that is the only reason they are acting so defensive.

Anyway, right now I am waiting for Mass Effect 2 to get here and Halo Reach feels so far away in comparison, but I know that it is going to be one of the standout games of the year and I think it is already looking amazing.

The Halo series finally looks like a true current-gen title.

muDD3242d ago

better lighting, textures, shadows... it's just a darker game. A game for grown folks... This looks really promising. Haters wanna hate! there is no reason to bash this game fanbois....

SilentNegotiator3242d ago (Edited 3242d ago )

These are "in-engine"
But not being rendered on a 360.

LOL @ any disagrees.
If you seriously think Reach will play in native 1080p with that much Anti-aliasing, you're nuts.

jjohan353242d ago

Could this be the first console FPS with native 1080p?

Great screen shots right there. If we can choose which character to use in the Story mode I want to play with the Skull head guy.


GR8 13243d ago

The detail is absolutely phenomenal.

gamer20103243d ago

Yep, Halo Reach is going to be a beast.

SilentNegotiator3242d ago

Yep, that's what Halo Reach would look like maxed out on a PC.
But not rendering on a 360.

life doomer3243d ago

the guy with the black armor looks like a tank, so [email protected]

ukilnme3243d ago

Looks great. Hopefully the gameplay will be great too. I have no doubts, it's Bungie and Halo.
