PostSubject: Halo Reach Blowout!   Fri Jul 23, 2010 12:31 am

Quote :
Halo 3's forge mode - the game's editing suite - is in for a serious revamp when Halo: Reach is released in September.

As Mike saw earlier today at Comic-Con, Halo: Reach has replaced Forge with Forge World, a vastly improved editing tool that not only lets players craft much larger maps, but also have a much more detailed method of interacting with them.

As an example, there will be multiplayer maps shipping on Reach's disc that were created using only Forge World. And that's from a dev team under crunch to get a game shipped. When the community get their hands on it, I expect amazing things to happen.

At Comic-Con today, Microsoft revealed a Limited Edition Halo: Reach bundle, packing two controllers with an Xbox 360 Slim, all in special silver casings, for $399. A copy of the game is also included. It's available Sept. 14.

The bundle will be available on Sept. 14, when Halo: Reach also launches. It will cost $399. It includes the standard Xbox 360 S configuration inside the Limited Edition, UNSC-stamped silver housing, the two silver controllers, and the game.

Xbox Live's Major Nelson added later via Twitter that: "The Halo: Reach console makes a Halo inspired sound when you turn it on, and another one (shield power up) when you eject the drive."

Bungie brought the latest features for their latest shooter, Halo: Reach, to Comic-Con, including all-new multiplayer modes, new maps and a new vehicle. Finally, you will be able to drive a futuristic forklift in a Halo multiplayer.

For the developers final Halo game, Bungie will be adding to the popular Firefight mode by adding a few new options. Developers showed off a new Firefight options, including a new game type, Gruntpocalypse, described as "All grunts, all the time. Aim for the face," and deep, easily accessible customization options.

More warmly received by the hardcore Halo crowd was Halo: Reach's new Versus Firefight mode, which lets you play from both the Spartan and Covenant perspective in the popular cooperative mode. In the gameplay demo shown during Bungie's panel, a two-player match between Elites and Spartans went down, with a wave of Covenant soldiers warping in against a lone Bungie developer playing as a red Spartan soldier.

We watched from the perspective of a Covenant Elite armed with an energy sword. (In this one on one match, the remainder of the Covenant swarm appeared to have been AI controlled, by the way.) He showed off new, unique assassination animations for the sword weapon, vicious looking attacks that pulled out the camera to third person for cinematic effect.

Halo: Reach's New 'Firefight' Covenant Mode, Forge World, More Debut At Comic-Con

Bungie also showed off Halo: Reach's newest multiplayer vehicle, a forklift. It controls awkwardly (intentionally) and features a fully working klaxon while in reverse.

Similarly impressive was the new Forge World. Bungie revealed it by showing off Halo: Reach's remake of the map "Blood Gulch," a classic arena now known as "Hemorrhage." While exhibiting the map, an up-rezed version of Halo 2's take on "Blood Gulch," Bungie showed off a bunch of new editing tools, designed to make creating custom Halo: Reach maps easier than any other game in the series.

Those new tools included minor things, like choosing custom colors for lights, to more powerful tools, like the ability to better create and control objects, apply custom physics types to those objects and scale items like teleporters. Players can snap rotate objects, have objects phase through other objects (and the world) and easily undo changes.

While cruising through the "Blood Gulch" recreation, Bungie devs took to the skies to show us what we were really looking at: Forge World. Going "beyond the canyon" the crowd realized the "Blood Gulch" map we were seeing was just a small slice of a much, much larger environment. Forge World was actually a huge map comprised of much smaller ones, with islands off shore, cliffs and ridges cut into a huge mountain and pre-constructed areas built into rock.

Players can define the playable borders of their Forge World map and customize it, making Forge World a map editing playground, with amazing opportunities. The developer released a new Vidoc of the tool on its official site, which shows in great detail what Forge World is capable of.

Bungie also showed off the new Xbox 360 Halo: Reach edition, the new sleek, silver hardware that sneaked out earlier today. They unboxed one onstage, then gave it away to a lucky fan.

Halo: Reach is out September 14 for the Xbox 360, with plenty of support after the fact expected.

Idk, I don't get how something is sought for just because it is rare, or at least something intangible. A Ferrari is completely different.

True, it will be less similar but we can't think of Halo as just jump and shoot. We have to think of how it can go forward and Bungie has definitely done that for us. It will be awesome!

Well, I got it on the 14th and I am amazed by how awesome this game is. Certainly not the best game ever but arguably one of the best Halos ever. I think it deserves more than a 92 on metacritic though.
