Reach Vidoc: Once More Unto The Breach Released

Here's Bungie's first propaganda piece video documentary for the Halo: Reach game we are all dying to see and play. We can play the Beta on May 3 but till then we have to make do with the glimpses that the vidoc gave us.


It's got a lot in it - shots of new weapons, a small sense of scale of the game, all the new lush detail - lots of polygons eh? Check out the bit where the player shoots the wall and the sparks fly. It's attention to detail like that that make Halo games so awesome.





The ViDoc also  provides a wee glimpse at the huge battles Bungie has been touting that the upgraded graphics engine can handle. There's also news of Spartan customization and few things to look out for include a grenade launcher, stealth kills (awesome assassinations not melee like H3) and a Spartan actually sprinting down a path. So no more lumbering from one battle to the next....


Here's a really bad shot I took of the grenade launcher:




You'll not the video game footage has been tagged with 'Reach Alpha Work In Progress' this is to show that the footage is part of the build still in development and is not final game play footage. The tag is to try and cut down on people whining that Reach doesn't look so hot. You know, the  Halo haters...


Did you spy the Lost Calico Cat is still missing?


So what did I miss?

Brutes and engineers were spotted on various screens at the studio. Speedy shotgun too.

I personally love the badass convoy. Even textureless it looks so inspiring. I can't wait to see that scene in the game!
