Bungie has just released ten all-new screenshots from its upcoming game, Halo : Reach.
A batch of new screens has been added to the original link.
I'm really looking forward to REACH. I love the darker, grittier feel, the weapons look so much better than Halo 3, and graphics are looking best of this gen.. Halo Reach you get a massive, always evolving, always different battlefield with you, your squad, and 40ish enemies as opposed to like 5 bad guys on screen at once. reach= best graphics to date in fps IMO.
GOTY 'ONLY' on the Xbox360
more detail etc makes it look like armor and less like plastic can't wait for this better
I hope that they have 2 disks, 1 for single player and another for multiplayer, so i don't have to switch disks or better yet make the multiplayer disk downloadable to Hard Drive. This game is 720p and a huge improvement from ODST & Halo 3 hence multiple disks are needed because of Higher resolution and texture detail. I might have to get another Xbox360 for this but i'll wait until E3 to see if the slim rumors are true :-)
Reach doesnt need 2 discs. each of the multiplayer levels is in the single player campaign, meaning no extra room is needed for multiplayer maps. ODST was not on 2 discs because of space. it was on 2 discs because if it was only on one, it couldnt have included Halo 3s multiplayer because you CANNOT play 2 different games with each other online, meaning ODST players could only play online against other ODST players, not Halo 3 players. by including Halo 3s multiplayer on a second disc, it is essentially Halo 3 to the xbox (just without the single player), so you can play it with genuine Halo 3 players.
Color me excited for the beta. It sounds like it will be a good mix of weapons and game modes to really try to get the balance perfect.
pretty spiffy.... finally a really good looking halo.
Really nice work, Bungie. Looking forward to the beta.
Huge jump from Pre-Alpha. Anyone remember when Fanboys were screaming that Bungie was lying about the Graphics getting better in the Beta. And Lehto announced today that their going into Polish mode now, meaning things will get even better. I hope this has taught some people to keep their filthy traps shut and come down on the weight of evidence. Roll on May 3rd. Day One!
@ knightdarkbox IMO doesn't work when facts exist such as KillZone 2 being the best looking FPS on consoles. If a fact exists then opinions don't matter. And please stop trying to act deluded cos this comes nowhere near the best. If you have played KillZone 2 you will know what a battlefield actully feels like, I mean you can feel whats going on on the other side of the map...can't discribe it but feels epic, unlike MW2. Im not saying Halo Reach is a poor looking games or anything, im actually thinking of getting 360 and this when price drops but stop being lost on a straight road you look stupid.
flopzone 2? yeha... /s imo flopzone 2 is not spectacular. They get so boring. And the graphics is so grey and blurry. FACT.
I don't know what you guys are seeing. It looks the same to me. Same stubby knee caps. Same texture mesh.
I am of one of Bungie's old fans who lost faith in the company. After the release of Halo3 and all of its promises of visuals that it never met, and that awful excuse of a new game that was ODST to make some easy cash, I'm going to keep bashing Bungie until I see the game for myself. They're just way too lazy of developers to not have created a better engine until now, especially since the company had more capital and resources than any other devs out there. They print money. So now they want to show all of these new screenshots, though quite impressive, and want the fans to forgive them for their shortcomings of Halo3 and ODST. The models and textures definitely rival Killzone2. I hate to use that as a reference, but it seems to become cliche to say things like that nowadays. Still aint buying this game until after its review. I waited for the midnight launch for the others, except ODST. I also won't be buying another game with a broken multiplayer that's full of online cheaters and bugs that the devs know exist. C'mon Bungie, we all know that most of those exploits were put into your games on purpose. You know that cheaters are a demographic in their own league. Don't [email protected]$k it up this time, ok.
"The models and textures definitely rival Killzone2." Please stop what you're doing. Seriously.
the models and textures are far better than those of Killzone 2. killzone 2 had horribly low-res textures hidden behind a grain filter and excessive amounts of motion blur and fancy lighting. the character models were also very low-polygon.
I've just added new screens from Bungie. Nice work indeed.
Who the hell plays Headhunter with a rocket? That's one weird screenshot...
it comes out in may? doesnt alan wake, also??
yes Alan Wake comes out in 18 May 2010, and Halo Reach Beta comes out in May 3rd, but its just a multiplayer beta not the whole game.
oh ok, thanks 4 clearin that up for me. actually, even if AW didnt hit in may it would still be a bad choice since Battlefield came out last month and its still relatively close to MW2. i'm sure M$ will capitalize on the right release time though. they always have. (with ODST being a notable exception)
I'm sick of Halo, don't disagree with me, I am, I am sick of Halo. I'm expressing my opinion, that's all.
I'm sick of people b!tching about being sick about Halo. Don't disagree with me, I am, I am sick of people b!tching about being sick of Halo. I'm expressing my opinion, that's all. People who are anticipating this game don't need your opinion. OT: Did anyone see the camo on the armor plates? Designs as well as colors and emblems makes for some pretty unique combination's.
lol, of course you're gonna get disagrees you fool. You say you are expressing your opinion but it feels more like you're trolling. But anyway, if you're sick of Halo, why are you checking out an article about it? Oh wait you probably didn't, right?
Then why did you comment in a Halo Reach article?
The definition of a troll is someone who comments negatively about something or expresses disinterest in a thread that is about that particular thing. For example: "Hey guys, I'm really not looking forward to this game at all. In fact, I am so disinterested in this game and think it is so bad, that I am going to log in and post a comment on this thread about how disinterested I am. Don't hate me, it's just my opinion." Since when did having an opinion mean that you can't be judged for your opinions. I'm not saying you're right or wrong. I'm just saying you're an annoying tool.
jet packs....cant wait to play it..brings back ol Tribes memories graphics to me are meh though, but Halo gameplay is where its at..
grenade explosions look better in motion, thats where wel'll most likely see the beauty of this game, while we are playing it
A little better than Halo 3.
@Disagreers aka die hard Halo fanboys: Look at these, those are promotional screens published by Bungie before Halo 3 came out: http://static.4players.de/p... http://www.firingsquad.com/... So, you're trying to say the Reach promo screens look a lot better? Where?
Actually if you look closely, you can tell they are a lot better. Let's compare Halo 3: http://www.firingsquad.com/... with Reach: http://img1.livegen.fr/00/0... As you can see, Reach has more hi-res textures on the armour and the lighting in the game has improved greatly since everything feels more real. Also, the amount of detail on the armour and environments have increased a lot: http://img1.livegen.fr/00/0... Just look at the helmet and gun. The Assault Rifle is much more detailed Halo 3's.
Ceekay, assuming that the promotional screenshots for Halo 3 were somewhat bullsh*tted, then it's a great accomplishment that Halo Reach gameplay shots have surpassed the bullshots.
I think you need a halo reach pic first :/ not to compare 2 pics from halo 3.
@ceekay - you think these look just a little better? reach - http://www.live360.fr/news/... halo 3 - http://www.bungie.net/image... the terrain, character models and vibrant colors, and foliage and textures look a lot better than halo 3
Can't wait for the beta to start!
It does look better -still nothing amazing or particularly special about the graphics - but then it's the playability halo fans love isn't it i think
Well, i don't own a 360, but i must say i'm impressed over the improvement from Halo 3, now we just need to how it perform real time and which resolution it runs in.
why do we need to know the resolution? oh please, that's the single must used and most dumbest thing sony fanboys say. like resolution really matters when a game like this is aesthetically beautiful already just by looking at it
I meant no offense, i never said anything about sony so i cannot see why you call me a fanboy, resolution does matter, however the screenshots clearly indicates they are 720p, sorry i did not meant what it seemed you took it as, i am still impressed, especially because of the number of players in it, was it 32 or 64?
tobebech Bio: "I'm gaming on PC, have plans on buying a PS3 and no interest in 360. I don't hate any of the game platform, but i hate fanboyy who just post crap without meaning". Dude, we know you have an agenda... The screen looks great and millions of people are going to love it.
Having no interest in the 360 doesn't mean he has an "agenda." I have no interest in the Sony PSP, but that doesn't mean I hate it.
@tobebech - i think the max is still capped at 16 (8v8) for big teams...on campaign is where you get the "vs. 40 AI or 20vehicles"
but looks good
I don't know why you got disagrees. Well, I do know but I think you're right. The game looks significantly better than Halo 3, which means the developers haven't just been sitting on their hands for the past 3 years. But the game doesn't look jaw-dropping. Crysis looked jaw-dropping, Reach just looks great.
i agree, the game is no jaw dropping, but what is trying to achieve is impressive, 60 AI and 20 vehicles at once this while on split screen (MP and SP), four coop players. I think the graphics are great for what is trying to achieve.
Another freaking child. You need better read before you calling Killzone 2 is a flop. Killzone 2 looks far better than that, that doesn't mean that Reach is bad but only not compare with Killzone 2 graphics/visual and more. Gameplay,story is a another question. So, you are only freaking 360 fanboytard kid with no PS3 and no Killzone 2 and yet you are justified Killzone without any knowledge. Fact!!!!!! is that no single 360 game can match with PS3 games in terms of graphics/visual/physics/lighti ng and 720p/1080p resolution.
But the key thing you left out is gameplay. There is not a single PS3 FPS that can match the gameplay of Halo plain and simple.
knightdarkbox HALO REACH BEST LOOKING GAME OF THIS GEN? HAHAHA u need glasses! CONDUIT 2 LOOKS BETTER THAN REACH
Fall 2010, I know where i'll be
WOW! this is just multiplyer and MP always looks worse than SP and these look damn good.
Why does screen 2 look good at the top (helmet) but a bit meh down below(legs) ?, tell youy why cos its photoshoped to bungie standards ( 50 %)
Awesome screenshots. I cannot wait to use the jetpacks. The crouching shield armor ability looks really cool as well.
im only touching the lockdown AA for small maps, that way you can get backup before the shield drops...lol, other than that, you are literally a sitting duck if you use that AA
True. It still looks sweet though! I'm sure it will come in handy for several maps and gametypes.
Pure pwnage! Get ready for the Halo Holiday. Nothing else is coming close to this.
Hey it looks like Halo 3, what's up with that? I'm scratching my head trying to figure out why?
