In an early morning announcement, Ubisoft said today that the much-anticipated title will arrive in just four months with a Mature rating.
This game is long on my pre-oreder list. I have full faith in devs ;)
4 months... *sigh*
play GTA 4 for another 2 months and then buy Haze. However GTA will last me at least 6 months
It will be delayed....again...
It better not get delayed again. I'm getting sick of it.
hahaha, it wouldn't shock me if it was delayed again but hopefully this will be the actual release date but this is exactly why I don't get excited about games until about 2 weeks before the release.
This is actually a TV ad letting the public know the game is coming in May, any further delays would mean extremely poor sales especially after you've notified the general public.
it will release the same time as MGS4....doesn't look good for HAZE to put it up against that monster.
Great day for them. GTA will have been out for a month or so and R2 is still a ways off. That should be more than enough to make a decent shooter.
Is it just me or do the graphics seem better than the original footage?
It had better be!
I agree with the poster above. They've had what... almost an extra 8 months to finish the game. I hope they used teh time wisely!
I'm sure it's using some of the original footage. The graphics have always been that good, but there are loads of videos in crap quality so people thought they must be bad.
But the game looks largely the same as it did. And by that, I mean it still looks average.
May is less than three months away, not four.
i saw that too... I am guessing it was a typo on IGN's part.
What is this game again?
Well at least it's launching after GTA4 and before MGS4 and NG2. So it might just have a chance. Prime time for launch would have been next month or in April before GTA4 though. If it's ok I'll get it anyway the extra development time should have been kind to them, 4 player coop ftw.
already go it pre ordered for quite a long time now, the hype is kinda gone but i think its still going to be a great game
Funny, I actually forgot all about haze. It reminds me of lair with all the constant delays. I'd be surprised if it ended up being anything more than mediocre.
You know Lair was awesome , people (or shall i say noobs, which includes u darlin) hated it because they couldnt handle the beast properly , and its a human nature wen u suck at somethin u hate it and b!tch about it ... nff said so get over it
lol lair sucked and it had nothing to do with controls. The level design, how the missions were set-up, the lockon system, and the 3.5 hrs it took me to beat the game all added up to sub-par experience.
Sorry to break it to you but Lair was complete crap. Theres a reason it got the reviews that it did, and I'm glad I rented it before buying. I had sky high hopes for that game to be the first aaa title for my ps3 and it was a steaming pile of garbage. It had great visuals but thats it. Not only did it control like crap, the combat sucked, the gameplay was repetative as hell and the game had no structure to speak of. Only the most diehard blind sony fanboy at this point would stick up for that tripe.
Mature rating, AWESOME. I hate those games that censor blood and gore to get T (cough Blacksite cough Call of Duty 2 cough Heavenly Sword...)
Funny, I don't even notice the lack of blood most of the time when I'm gaming. I also think more artistic games like heavenly sword are sometimes better off without blood. For fps games though blood is a must.
I don't fully disagree with you but I'm a gore hound and huge fan of blood and gore. Plus, blood and gore is ALWAYs awesome. Just look at God of War.
COMES IN JUNE WIT DS3
Can't these SIMPLETONS count? MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
You know, its not easy to set a release date for a game..
uhhh.. resistance 2... killzone 2... yeah.. this was a buy last year.. this year.. not so much
I'm getting all three this year;)
hey don't forget about me. I have Vegas 2 an, er wait so do you, and well I have. um Gears of War 2!?..does that count?. I know its not an fps but hey at least its got blood and thick brutes and Cliffy B.
Nice, I'm glad it's being released closer to summer then closer to fall. Of course with my backlog of games I might have time to play it in till the fall.
in may and MSG4 in June I will be getting it for sure. This gives Ubi enough time to help hype the game up again and if it drops when no one else is, even better. I have faith in the dev's and I don't blame them for Ubi pushing it back. I for one can't wait to play it and I think the design and concept of the game with shine through. It shall be judged.
That was the S***
sweet, u can hear the new Korn song in the background lol
sounded terrible, like usual.
just doesn't have taste... I don't listen to Korn by the way. Listen to Muse.
so is it 3 months or 4? Godamnit Ubisoft, delays after delays after delays now you can't evern give us a specific month? I'll believe it when I see the game on store shelves, stupid French
I hope Ubisoft follows up on this so we can play this great game.
honestly I don't care anymore. I was hyped, but now its almost dead to me. I understand delays when its metal gear or final fantasy when its pushing the system or trying something new, but this is just a FPS. Not a good sign its getting delayed so much.
Im still gonna buy it thou. 2 months delay i can handle, but this is sick... I hope they have spent the time well.. Edit: it will be refreashing with a coop game and 4player splitscreen online, that has been missing.
the funny thing is. while my ignorant army desperately scrambles around a goldeneye port for XBLA, something that MS apparently is incapable of getting the rights to. the guys that actually made the original Goldeneye are busy creating what could end up being one of the better games of the year. Its just for another system. too bad for my owners.
Between two of the biggest title this year, ppl won't even have the time to play it let alone buying it.
Please keep with this new release date!
They better keep the new date! This game has been delayed WAY too much. It's my most anticipated of 2008 and I'm really hoping it will deliver.
ABOUT TIME! >_>
If this game came out at its scheduled release time, everyone would have been up in arms about what could of been, and potential, but it was rushed and is a piece of crap. They delay the game to make it right, and everyone complains that they should release it already and "I don't even care anymore" comments start flying around. Either way, people are bashing them. It is one way or the other! Relax already! Judge the game when it gets here. It seems solid enough, and if the gameplay lives up to what we've all seen, it should be good.
You are absolutely right. Look no further that AC. That game could have been great and by all means wasnt bad. The missions themselves needed TONS of work. It was too repetitive and the game itself didnt involve the player enough. That game could have used another 6 months IMO.
is this for stateside release or europe im supposed to be gettin this game on 3rd of march in ireland
so accordin to you guyz everygame has to be jaw droppin ? & amazingly Graphical?
This video was so tough. Don't mess with HAZE. I want this more than MGS4
atleast it's dated, so people don't wine that ps3 doesn't have any games in mid 2008. it's just builds up ps3 library none the less with decent shooters or good shooters, nobody really knows.
maybe ill wait awhile though.
as long as this game comes out in May im deffinatly getting it, but seriously ubisoft, delaying a game for over eight months is ridiculous, if this game isnt amazing, i'll personally show up and start an angry mob to take down ubisoft (well, most likely i'll send an angry letter which wont be replied to for years lol)
Yo i dont care how long its taking them that just shows its gunna be a better game and they even said their self that because of the delayes the game looks alot better. MAY is my Bday!!!
May is a good release date for this. Any later it wouldn't stand a chance with MGS4 and other titles coming up around that time period.
never took Haze off pre-order got 3 mates coming round to play the 4-player co-op with booze and grub- it's gonna be great
will this game have online co-op?
'JUST 4 months' ? I remember when this game was supposed to come out in November.
if it does, then i'll buy it
at least now there is a defenite month, now all they have to do is stck to that
@ Izkyd1331 yes it does have co-op. It's actually called hot swap co-op because you can jump into/out of an already in progress game with your friends. Should also mention it's 4player online co-op.
when Bungie, Bioware, or Valve announces their next project, people cream their pants, hoot and cheer and what have you. why is that? because those companies have a track record for delivering a quality gaming experience every time. *HOWEVER, when Free Radical announces *THEIR next project (in this instance, Haze), they are met with scorn and derision. i mean, it's not like Free Radical made Goldeneye on the N64, Perfect Dark on the N64, the Timesplitters series, and Second Sight, which has one of the best stories of the last generation of games. hell, Goldeneye was the game that *PROVED a console FPS with multiplayer no less, could work. 10 years ago. but no, just dismiss Haze as another generic FPS. considering Free Radicals track record, i'm not expecting Haze to revolutionize the FPS genre, but i'm expecting it to be a fun game (like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, and Timesplitters), and have an excellent story (like Second Sight). give the guys at Free Radical a break. not every game has to be 100% innovative and revolutionary to be a good time. you gamers are too god damned spoiled and jaded. expecting gold with every single game release. not everybody can be a Square-Enix, or Kojima, or Team Ico, or Shigeru Miyamoto. i imagine most of you guys gaming libraries are very, *VERY small, if all you do is wait for the AAAAAAA quality titles to release. they are very few and far between.
Yeah, man. Everybody seemed to forget Free Radical's accomplishments. I know Resistance 2's 60 player will be hard to beat, but Haze is going to a different direction with its Nectar gameplay. I'm still looking forward for this game even if it comes out along MGS4. I'll just buy 'em both. Problem solved.
I must admit that I am starting to come around to the point of view you just described. I was HUGELY skeptical of this game last year and I agree that it wont revolutionize anything. However, I do think it will be fun. They have been given an extra 8 months which can only mean more improvement. If I had to guess the extra 8 months (give or take a few) was done to develop the engine and graphics. 6 months ago I didnt and wouldnt give this game a chance but the more I think about it the more I think this game could pull off a unique (however, not revolutionary) FPS experience. My guess is that it will be fun but nothing that sells bunches of systems. My guess is that it will get a meta rating of around 8.4.
I completely agree with you (although the team from Rare 10 years ago isn't identical from Free Radical, it's close enough we can see from the results of Timesplitters). I get irritated by the "just another FPS" drivel, it gets old after someone rips apart a single screen shot and already talks as if they could write a 4 page review on the games mechanics.
The graphics do look a lil better....
Looks like conflict denied ops will have company if this ever comes out this year.
Looks like timeshift and not that good.
HURRAY, ive been waiting for this game foreverr
