Reach for the stars in this gameplay clip as the Halo franchise ventures out into the realm of space combat!
It looks like a totally different game! Will this be implemented into multiplayer?
Oh man, that would be kind of cool actually. If there was a mode focused around this. I doubt it though. Can't wait for Sept 14th =D
You mad, you can't play it. :p
You aren't a very good troll.
@Lionhead you never know they might implement a new gameplay mode just for air combat, maybe assault and defence.
Doubt it's coming to Multiplayer, but note that we haven't seen much of the Single Player. I am sold on the multiplayer, but I want to see them pulling out all the stops for this game. Heavy GOTY 2010 contender next to LBP2 for me. Wish they showed some SP at E3, some actual single player content. Was so upset to see Bungie/Halo pretty much ignored for Kinect.
Who knows though they add great new game modes and features in every Halo Forge and Firefight are amazing additions to this gen of Halo. I remember seeing that video with the chess game mode, even though it was a joke, that would have been awesome IMO haha Glad there is finally Spartans v Elites though, epic Big Team Battles are to ensue =D
they said that the space combat was only one part of the campaign AND ONLY ONE PART :( (no backtracking) and it WONT be in multiplayer...however, there is RACE as a new multiplayer gametype apparently, which checkpoint style racing...might be able to use hornets and banshees in there as well EDIT: btw, those graphics were marvelous...i have a small feeling that they are trying to gain experience with spacebattle for their next ip with activision..they almost never do anything "new" (in relation to their own games) without implementing it if future games, even if it doesnt have to do with halo...i think they did the same with their previous ip's, and added those features in some way to halo games I cant wait to play that with 4 player coop on legendary...one of the employees said he took 5 hours alone and couldnt beat it in the last weekly update
Oh alright, thanks. It's still in coop though I assume
Finally some more gameplay of this. EDIT: The enemy doesn't put up much of a fight...
Bungie said so space combat in multiplayer.
Probably a super secret game mode they will drop a bomb with right before release.
This would be a heavy "Game Of The Year 2010" contender if they used this in multiplayer. It would offer some diversity, so that it wouldn't get boring fast... not that a Halo game could anyways :-)
with regular multiplayer, firefight, and race...i think there will be plenty to do in reach...ESPECIALLY when its all customizable (but prolly not matchmake-able when in custom game) i know for sure im gunna have plenty of fun with invasion and firefight for sure
No it wont heard at E3 it will be coop though.
They already said it's 4 player coop.
Wish they showed some SP at E3, some actual single player content. Was so upset to see Bungie/Halo pretty much ignored for Kinect. Did you even watch Microsoft's E3 presentation?..the single player is ALL the showed on stage. That was the first time we even saw the space footage. They even had a seperate show for the game..and showed Firefight 2.0 on the floor for the media outlets. Halo Reach was given the same amount of time on this years E3 stage as any conference in the history of E3. Just like Gear of War 3 etc..just because they had a big presentation for Kinect that doesnt change the fact that it was shown.. As for everyone else..i'm with them..the space battle would have been an amazing addition to multiplayer..but I'll take everything from the Beta and Firefight 2.0 just fine.. Evil
Looks and sounds really good. Can't wait!:)
Absolute Day 1 Purchase!
Serious GOTY contender. Looks to have heaps of variety.
I disagree.Mass Effect 2 easily took the cake this year at the first month
Definitely not a GOTY contender. -_-
ME2 was good, but Halo is way out there. That said, my 2 favorite things about a video games is customization and FPS's. I think with Halo Reach, LBP2, SMG2, RDR, GoW3, and possibly others ME2 will be lucky to be nominated.
There is pleny of good games coming out that could easily be GOTY.
huh i am not impressed,it's casual fight,nothing what i didn't saw in some another space games
Yeaaah no. Truth is, Bungie's first attempt at a flight shooter will be better than 90% of games in the genre.
It looks ok. I am not flipping a lid over this. But the change of scenery is great. And a MP mode with dogfights in space would be awesome. These space fights don't feel epic though. They look like regular flying levels, but in space. Kind of a mini game between planets. Don't stealth troll me, I'm getting it. It's just not making me cancel any preorders for this.
Reach is looking refreshing,very good
Wow, the backdrops look mesmerising. Kind of looks like the Rachet and Clank: ACIT space combat gameplay. Also wouldn't it be cool if you could play this in co-op? Awesome....
You can...it's a part of the coop campaign
Seriously?! If its true then I'm freakin gonna buy a 360 just for REACH!!!
if you meant coop with friends, then yea...its one part of the campaign, so you and 3 other friends will be in your own ships (and can dogfight against each other for fun after killing the enemy if you want) but if you meant coop multiplayer matchmaking, then no, its not gunna be a multiplayer gametype
hmm this can't be GOTY contender lol,just tell me what's so special in this game??
Have you played it yet? Yeah I thought not. I'm not a big fan of Halo myself but it's looking more likely I will be picking this up, looks 100x more fun than Halo 3 already.
I dunno, looks like star wars Bf2 which was kinda boring and repetitive, it's too slow paced, I would prefare enemies to take less bullets for space combat Graphics are wonderful though Edit: It would be nice to use a full on cruiser like the fall of reach book
that came out a few years ago called Warhawk that makes that look like turd now!
Really? So you're telling me a whole game dedicated to this type of gameplay is better suited for space combat than a game that has it in one level while the rest of the game it isn't even mentioned..... That's shocking
but Starhawk (Warhawk's upcoming sequal) will look alot like this so when it does come don't say they copied it, especailly when they do a better job.
but nice trolling attempt there. Sage, the sandbox director at bungie was also a lead on the crimson skies game for the original xbox. And trust me, that game already made warhawk look last gen.
I was thinking of Crimson Skies too
Who says "turd" but a child.
It would be nice if this was incorporated in a way that Battlefront 2 did it, where you could fight on the ground and in space, all in one match.
Yup, i was just going to say that it looks EXACTLY like Battlefront 2 space battles. If you could go into the ships and blow shit up it couuld be really fun. Thinking about it, i really want a new Battlefront game...
This is awesome! Reminds me of the space station Assault level in UT2004!
Man Gotta buy Halo: Reach, Fable III, Dead Rising 2, Crackdown 2, Castlevania, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, "something special", Metroid: Other M, and Donkey Kong Country: Returns. Let's see here, I still need to beat Fatal Frame IV, FFXIII, WKC, Yakuza 3, Lost Odyssey, Red Dead, and Mass Effect 2. Most of these games are long RPGs which sucks. Hopefully I can get these done before September because I don't want to get clustered with a lot of unbeaten games.
LOL, okay, bungie, the game looks decent, polished even, but it looks boring, At least in Battlefront you can dock into ships and blow them up from the inside. Even on the psp. Well, to those that are hailing this as a GOTY runner up, I hope you guys enjoy this game. It does seem a little underwhelming if you ask me.
Bungie has stated that alot of content from that stage was removed for Demo purposes, there will be alot more to the space combat in the final game.
THIS doesn't look boring. it looks freaking awesome, we need more next-.gen space dogfights!!! starfox HD isn't coming anytime soon, so this looks very very cool!
It's looking superb. I couldn't agree more - the whole generation could do with more space dogfights. Able to Upgrade weapons - Freaking big laser weapons - Massive enemy ships to blow the crap out of - Upgrade craft/ship - Motherships - Space stations - Exploding planets - Meteor showers - Black holes - Hyperspace. Imagine it...
It does look awesome to me, especially for it being only a small part of the campaign :)
NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN N NNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO O OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO O OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! ! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNN N NNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG I IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What are you doing? I hate this type of combat. >_<
looks quite good! saw it on gametrailers earlier since the space dog fights was the only thing in the trailer that caught my attention, and im impressed =) now make Halo:Universe = an open world game where you can fly in space AND have ground combat semi-open world game!! travel from planet to planet fighting a new threat TOGETHER with the covenant!! - like some mentioned LIKE BATTLEFRONT 2!! i would buy a 360 for THAT! =D still, looks great! =)
They where going to do that (ground, to air to space battles) for the new Battlefront 3 until it was canceled for some reason.
Pretty cool! -End statement
shows the others they are still playing catch-up!!!
Not bad Bungie, not bad at all.
Wow, it looks absolutely mental! And that's coming from a PS3 owner.
PEW PEWPEW PEEEEEEWWWW!!
graphics look frikin crzzzzzzzzzzzzzzyyyy like a total different game !!
And I was reading a bunch of comments on the "The Halo Franchise is Getting Boring" article on N4G where a bunch of PS3 fanboys kept saying that Halo "Offers nothing new each time around". I don't care what anyone else thinks, Halo Reach is a MUST buy for me. Disagree all you want, Trolls.
