343 Industries has released more information surrounding their remake of the Halo Combat Evolved which is now officially called Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary.
Bring it chief!~
Agreed! Can't wait for this puppy!
can't wait don't really care about the multiplayer but to play the game and see what was awesome scenery made into HD on reach engine will be awesome
do we know if co-op is offered via xbl ? screw the multiplayer co-op 1,2,3,or 4 players would be sick as hell and highly welcomed
there is co-op over xbox live they stated that on g4 during their showcase
since it isn't a remake, i'm guessing it'll only be 2 player co-op. good enough for me though. CE was such a great game...can't even count how many times i played through that game with my roomate in college. load up the bong, and play Two Betrayals on Legendary. quite possibly the most fun i've ever had in gaming. Cortana: "You have no idea how this ring works, do you? Why the Forerunners built it? Halo doesn't kill Flood, it kills their food. Humans, Covenant, whatever. We're all equally edible. The only way to stop the Flood is to starve them to death. And that's exactly what Halo is designed to do: Wipe the galaxy clean of all sentient life. You don't believe me? Ask him!" (Points at Spark.) Master Chief hesitates, and then turns to 343 Guilty Spark. Master Chief: "Is it true?" 343 Guilty Spark: (pauses) "More or less. Technically, this installation's pulse has a maximum effective radius of twenty-five thousand light years. But, once the others follow suit, this galaxy will be quite devoid of life, or at least any life with sufficient biomass to sustain the Flood." (Pause) "But you already knew that... I mean, how couldn't you?" Cortana: "Left out that little detail, did he?" 343 Guilty Spark: "We have followed outbreak containment procedure to the letter. You were with me each step of the way, as we managed this crisis." Cortana: (alarmed) "Chief, I'm picking up movement!" 343 Guilty Spark: "Why would you hesitate to do what you have already done?" Cortana: (urgently) "We need to go, right now." wow, can't tell you how excited i am to play this again!
this needs its own multiplayer for me to invest. i'm not a fan of reach at all
Retailing for $39.99. Ultra mega win.
Not remaking the original MP is a huge huge missed opportunity. The shooter market is so riddled with all these fancy additions now that bringing it back to basics with nicer visuals would have been a breath of fresh air.
But Sidewinder with the Reach engine...OMG!!!
This is a homerun for Microsoft. It's an easy, guaranteed mega hit for them and I for one will be right there in line, first day with everyone else. I know people like to hate on Halo, and a lot of them have pretty good points to make, especially with the later games. But the first Halo was a masterpiece and I, for one, am excited to get back into it.
yeah, it's only gonna sell a billion copies! can you tell i'm excited? =P So many great great looking games coming out at the end of the year (Skyrim, Deus Ex, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, Resistance 3 (that's a lotta 3's), etc..), and none of them have me worked up quite like this.
