Halo: Reach Multiplayer Tease

IGN: Bungie loves to tease us. Countdowns are its forte. Weekly updates with snippets of hints that could mean anything are common. In fact, just today we got another near meaningless hint in the studio's weekly update. It seems the team has recently gone through a group-wide multiplayer play test. Naturally, nobody is willing to talk about it. Those expecting something new for Halo: Reach's multiplayer, however, might have reason to get excited.

Tease- "to irritate or provoke with persistent petty distractions, trifling raillery, or other annoyance, often in sport."

sounds about right

Three REAL Halo games in 8 years, and that is milking? I don't think anybody really considers Halo Wars anything more than a way to make an RTS, except for people who want to get upset about a successful franchise.

Oh my god, what are they going to do next, re-release all of the Halo games together in one set? Oops, sorry, that is God of War 3. Which the first one came out in 2005... just sayin'...

edgeofblade3272d ago

I have high expectations for Reach, if only for them to provide something new and unique beyond the standard Halo mechanics we have seen so far. They need to raise the bar again... and the only way I can see that happening is if they introduce some hybrid style of game play no one else has gotten right yet.

Maybe that will be some sort of MMO-ish structure... or an RTS-ish structure blended with the trademark Halo mechanics. Either way, don't kid yourself into thinking Bungie will just let the Halo name sell this. Microsoft might be willing to, but Bungie knows better...

Can't wait to see how full of fail it is.

rukia_chan3272d ago

another overrated halo in space of 1 year...


Mr Face Creamer3272d ago

Says the console with 5 SingStar games a year, three God of War games and a disc set for a chance to get more cash in 4 years.

Meanwhile... There have been 3 halo games, a DLC disc, and a Halo RTS not developed by Bungie.

Pathetic slaves. Phony can't program a droid for sh1t.

chrisulloa3272d ago

Well said Mr Face Creamer. This game is going to be amazing.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3272d ago (Edited 3272d ago )

Uncharted 2 1 million, Killzone 2 1 million, GTP the PS3's most popular "demo" talk about fail. I wonder how long it would take the PS3 to reach 10 million of anything and 8 million online gamers in one single game.

Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 multiplayer room 1:

Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 multiplayer room 2:
Same people (((crickets)))

Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 multiplayer room 3:
Same people (((more crickets)))

Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 multiplayer room 4:
Same people (((more damn crickets)))

Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 multiplayer room 5:
Same people and 3 of them are Nasim multi accounts (((f**king crickets)))

Halo multiplayer room 8,554,228 online

PS3 owners waiting in blockbuster line to buy latest Blu-ray movie 25,666,487

The PS3's most popular game is only about 10% of Halo's worst game in popularity.

Just how much better can they make the graphics? Bungie hasn't been known for pushing the visual envelope. And though, I don't really care about graphics, Halo's multiplayer has remained consistently similar each iteration, so unless they make a drastic change in gameplay, then all I can imagine Reach being (in it's multiplayer mode) is a graphically better version of Halo 2 & 3. I really want to see screens.

SixZeroFour3272d ago (Edited 3272d ago )

they are using a totally different engine than they used with halo 3, odst and i think halo 2 and they have been working on reach since the release of halo graphics wise is all up in the air with what they can possibly do

as for has changed a bit, from original CE, to dual welding, car jacking, new grenades and weapons in halo 2, to equipement more weapons, and more vehicles in halo 3...but also, why change a gameplay that was IMO very well balanced and enjoyable?

and yes, i too, at the very least would love to see some screens, or even a teaser trailer of cgi about what it is actually about (before, during or after the fall of reach i mean, IF fall of reach has anything to do with it)

Ugly American3272d ago

Yes, Bungie HAS been known for pushing the graphics envelope. In 2001, Halo was THE best looking game available. When Halo 2 came out in 2004, it took the graphics to another level. When Halo 3 came out, again, the graphics were the best available. They certainly haven't aged well since ODST looks like Halo 3, but Bungie has not been slacking in that department.

givemelbpbetakeys3272d ago

you are just not ugly but blind 2

kaveti66163272d ago

Relax fellas. I've played Combat Evolved. Even in 2001 it was not the best thing out there. I thought Halo 2 graphics were great, but again, I'm talking about pushing the envelope. In 2007 when Halo 3 came out, it didn't look as good as Gears of War, which came out in 2006, so Halo 3 was not the best looking game in 2007. And as for ODST, I thought it looked better, but the problem at that point is art style. By using the same color palette and vehicle designs, Bungie is essentially giving us the same visual experience each time but with slightly better lighting and texture resolutions. So, I hope Bungie departs from the bright blues and purples and makes a grittier game with Reach. Art style should be different, story should be a bit more character-centric rather than plot-centric.

edgeofblade3272d ago (Edited 3272d ago )

I say, don't break what works, but I do agree that it's time Bungie moved forward with something new.

But I don't want to see drastic changes, like some games make. Sometimes sequels in some games are indistinguishable from their predecessors. THAT is "milking" the name for a completely different game... so much more than Halo does.

Hideo_Kojima3271d ago (Edited 3271d ago )

I don't see why they wouldn't be able to.

flirt_games3271d ago

Yep... at 640p.... it is pushing the envelop for graphics...
