For those of you who have played Sanctuary in Halo 2 you will remember how great of a map it was. I quite enjoyed it. Well recently GameTrailers released a video of a bunch of gameplay on it. You can see the scale of the objects very well if you take the time to constantly pause and observe them. Also the first thirteen seconds of the video hint at a MASSIVE expanse that we may be able to forge on around the Forerunner tower that is always in the background. Now we get to see from the top of the Forerunner tower down. Do you think we will be able to forge around there or is that just a cinematic view? Also if you take a look to the right of the shot from above the tower you can see a HUGE grassy area with trees everywhere. It is quite a site:
The Cage Gameplay
This video that I am about to show you is much longer and also helps with the scale of the objects in Forge World. This map is of the new map called The Cage that is similar in style to Lockout, Guardian, Blackout, etc. It gives you a good sense of how big the blocks that they are giving us are and how wide the ramps and what nots are. It is off-screen footage that was captured at Comic-Con I believe. Also a video that hasn't been seen by many.
So there was this big fiasco yesterday about some MLG guys getting Halo: Reach as of a couple days ago. While reading through this big fiasco I found these two videos done by the guys who call themselves the Hidden Masters. They seem to have their own copies of it. They released two videos yesterday that they called "First Looks". The first was of a little preview of Cage and Pinnacle, which is all pretty much the same except that they go into forge mode on Pinnacle and actually move one of the structures. The other video is of them placing down hologram and drop shield on Pinnacle and showing them off. If you have seen the other two you probably haven't seen these.
These guys are telling us that if we request something they will try to show it to us. So if you want to request something go to this channel and comment about what you want to see. I posted that I wanted to see the full forge lists scrolled through to give us an idea of object limits and budget costs. I also wanted to see gametype settings. While this may be a fluke the videos have never been seen before and they look legit so it's worth a try. So repeat what I say on the page or request something new. The more the better.
Alright so all this info about Reach... what are you truly looking forward to? Bottomless clips, nudging, rotation snap, phasing, forge world, armor abilities, no jump height, etc. I want to find out what you guys are looking forward and I will partake in the discussion.
