onPause Writes: "Along with the announcement of when Halo: Reach beta will start Bungie has also released three brand new screenshots."
How about a gameplay video, Bungie?
One is coming later today from what I know. onPause will post it once its released!
There's a ViDoc coming tomorrow. Lets hope someone will leak it today!
Beta is just around the corner
Please don't tell me Halo still isn't going to jump up to 720p....
The details are all there and every thing is nice and sharp. Still, too early to get excited.
If you play FPS games based on their looks & resolution you should get Crysis for PC. I'm not that impressed by these screenshots from a graphics standpoint but that's not why I like Halo. The only important graphics factor imo is the framerate.
No reason we can't have both. You'd think the 360's "Supreme" GPU could handle it.
I must say this screenshots look pretty impressive, taking into account that Halo does have split screen, 4 player campaign coop over live and a bunch of Ai running around with terrain vehicle as well as air vehicles. I'm pretty impressed with the amount of details put into this game. Bungie has done it again. Bungie has the screens in higher resolution http://www.bungie.net/News/...
This is really starting to look good. Halo has always had color, but this is just the most color I've seen in a FPS this gen. So far the graphics for this game is a solid 9/10 and they still have time to bump them up even more.
"Bungie has the screens in higher resolution" Pre-rendered 1080p. yeah.
The Screen shots look good. Very Sharp. I love the colors. but wait....... what's this....... 1024 X 576 That's NOT HD. but if they continue on this path the game should look great.
Reach is looking pretty damm good. Its going to be a long wait for this beast. JOY
I'm sorry, do you really think that Bungie would put up "prerendered" 1080p screens, while providing these external sites with 1024x576 versions of the same screens as if they were the real resolution? That makes absolutely zero sense. Even Halo 3 was higher res than 1024x576 - as with previously released assets for Reach, it's more than likely that websites are receiving lower res versions of the media, while Bungie keeps the higher res media on their own site. Even previous screens were 720p - the resolution that I'm assuming Reach will be released in.
Looking good. Video please.
posted some effing awesome screens of reach on neogaf, it seems like they added grass to the flat green and brown texture of the ground really makes it pop, it looks gritty, I CANT WAIT, they also showed a multiplayer map that has a highground feel to it, really awesome stuff, man fall cant come soon ENOUGH!!
Cant say bungie didn't disappoint those people who thought this was going to have amazing graphics after all that talk about complete new engine.
Looks gorgeous. It has an almost painterly feel about it. I can't wait for this game.
These screens look amazing! I can not wait to try the beta!!!
much better than the pre-alpha stuff.
Wow screens look great definitely an improvement over Halo 3 or ODST
They are. I'm glad they didn't go gears of war and wash out the color. http://farm5.static.flickr....
Not as gritty looking as I hoped it would be, still looks very similar to H3 to me. Maybe it's not such a bad thing, Bungie's work has always had that super clean look (objects seem brand new, a absence of wear and tear, very straight clean lines) almost to a fault. But being a pretty big Halo fan, I still have faith that Reach will be awesome, it may not turn out be the graphical powerhouse many of us are hoping for, but in the end I know the game will be an amazing gaming experience.
keep in mind that this is prolly part of the demo/beta campaign being released on may and most likely the early levels of REACH...they said that we will basically see the destruction of reach, so i expect your "gritty" level design near the end of the game, which they arent showing
I want to see the game in motion.
its the same as halo 3. nothing impressive.
This game hasent even been released and it murders all ps3 exclusives already!
just enjoy the game as it is coming
the background is so bland.
I'm not really sure how you could improve what's shown with these shots.I mean the materials all look like what they should I do like the darker direction in terms of general palette and i have faith this should be the bang we want Bungie to go out in with Halo Video would be real nice but i'm just going need to be a little patient
Ya going by the trailer I thought it was going to be more dark, and the graphics in trailer look better. Still, it looks 100 times better than Halo 3 and thats all that matter. And WEHERES THE GAMEPLAY?!1
Trailer was during the night, look at the screenshot with the rain it looks pretty dark. Im glad the are still using colors, i dont want halo to look grey like GoW2
Wow i didnt know Bungie had it in them, glad to see their actually makeing Halo look next gen
I am talking about graphics...not MP gameplay...look at COD..crappy glitchie gameplay thats very popular. I am not a Halo MP fan..I just like Hal SP and CoOP Regardless my comment about graphics still stands..
These screenshots look like they were taken from Halo 3. WTF ? Bungie and there BS promises [url] http://www.bungie.net/image... to this [url] http://www.bungie.net/image... Its E3 2K6 all over again. F*ck you Bungie you lying b*stards!
Your links don't work...smart one
Its early, but I have yet to see a screen that impresses me. Most def we have already seen better in released games. Released is the key word
Cool story man....did you realize that many of those already released games still aren't played as much as Halo 3 multiplayer?
yet none are as complete as a halo game... i like how bungie has never been scared of using color. i just hope that they make the graphics a bit more gritty but keep the explosions and gun fires just as bright and colorful..
you have to compare to halo 3. This is definatly a worthwhile upgrade.
Troll???? Anyways i loooove halo but i dont see much of a difference.
that really didn't help prove the game looks better lol those look exactly the same and here is the really sad part that is a halo 3 multiplayer shot which looks worst then the single player. so reach barely looks better then the multiplayer of one of the worst looking games this gen. you just showed everyone reach isn't impressive at all congratulations.
Sigh... such biased and blind fanboys. The difference is huge. Halo 3 was already a nice looking game.
Thing is guys, you likely don't actually care about this franchise one little bit True Halo fans can see great potential in a more fully realised Halo world in the form of Reach and the info so far on it It's about these greatly realised worlds with a gameplay to match- that's what it's always been about with the fans A gameplay video would be real nice at some point so fingers crossed
3rd Screen is the best of the bunch, texture work much better than Halo 3/ODST. Some footage wouldnt go amiss.
What's more is how there is now twice as much to process in terms of AI on screen and a huge step up in polygon pushing So yes i think it looks particularly good all things considered
WTF?! MAG looks better than this sh!t, what a joke. :D
Yeah right. MAG looks like dog sh*t rolled in horse sh*t. Halo Reach is leaps and bounds better looking.
Bungie continues to impress!
early beta images you jackazz
xaviertooth has been in every x10 post so far using all of his bubbles, talk about MASSIVE damage control.
You're right - I thought he was telling the truth, and then I clicked on the images. WOW!!! This looks like Donkey Kong 64.
I think the game looks great and will be the next great halo since 3..
graphics are better, pretty sure theyre still working on the background stuff
Looks good... Looks real good, actually. Not the biggest fan of FPS or the Halo saga but they really stepped it up in terms of visuals since Halo 3 I think. Not as good as Killzone 2 but it's still early days... Good on them guys.
Alot better than halo 3. Hopefully improvements such as a run feature would be in halo reach. No perks. Terrible.
I see same old Halo here. My goodness, the 360 is getting really old really fast.
First off, the game is looking incredible graphically. Secondly, the 360 is getting old? I guess all the AAA titles that have been coming out recently dont mean anything? please.. go cry me a river. I guess you were the same one crying about how the PS2 was getting really old really fast?
Don't mind frankymv. He is one of the most flaming PS3 fanboys on this site. You can't take anything he says seriously, because he is always saying nonsense just to get a rise out of people. Halo Reach is clearly a very graphically advanced game and it looks significantly better than Halo 3.
Don't blame the console for the graphical shortcomings. It boils down to the integrity/laziness of the developers. They could push the 360 if they wanted to. Some just can't. I'm a Nintendo fanboy not a Microsoft one, so don't. It's all about the gameplay with Halo anyway, and besides that, for a HALO GAME, this looks pretty decent. It's still early though. Could get better, could not.
The graphics are not really mind blowing, but they do look nice, especially compared to halo 3. Looking forward to the trailer.
Holy shi- http://www.bungie.net/image...
I know what you mean. That looks stunning.
Wow, look at the wood textures http://farm3.static.flickr....
can't wait!! bungi went all out with this one! then again if its ur last halo might as well make it remembered! Guns r beast! I like the fact that u can roll and get jump packs!!! Halo:ODST was boring, easy, and Just bla! same goes 4 halo3
