Well, well, well… it all seems to be true.
Scans from the upcoming issue of GamePro magazine hit the web today showing new pics of many of the forthcoming features we’ve been talking about here at 7th Columnist.
Not that we ever doubted ourselves, but some of our readers certanily did.
Check out all the lovely scans below, we’ll be updating this post with higher quality images the second we can.
Custom Spartan Armour
Just as we reported, new custom armour types will be available for use in mutliplayer.
The Brute Chopper is an evil looking machine that packs two cannons and its spinning blade will destroy anything in its path.
Big and bulky, the Wraith looks to be quite similar to how it appeared in Halo 2, except featuring second turret for additional players.
The Energy Sword has undergone two significant changes to help with balancing issues. Bungie has added a weapon switching delay when equipping the Sword and it will also run on a battery.
The Magnum too has undergone some changes. It now holds eight rounds to a clip, still doesn’t include a scope, shoots slower, but each shot will bring on more damage. A siginificant upgrade to its Halo 2 counterpart.
When deployed, this equipment item will cause all nearby players radars to go nuts. Showing those little red dots everyhere!
“A UNSC battle cruiser looms menacingly over Shrine’s sprawling sand dunes. Shrine is the largest map ever to appear in a Halo game, so Bungie put a key emphasis on vehicle-on-vehicle combat. Shrine has few ties to older Halo 2 maps, but its massive size recalls Relic.”
“Epitaph is an arcane Forerunner cathedral-like structure that towers above the surrounding wasteland. The central killing floor is crisscrossed with elevated walkways, exterior hallways, and lifts. It’s a spiritual successor to Halo 2 maps like Colossus, Gemini, and Midship.”
“Zanzibar, one of Halo 2’s most beloved maps, has been rebuilt and rechristened Last Resort for Halo 3. This industrial site is almost twice as big, with a less cluttered internal layout and more paths into the flag room.”
So there you have it, it’s beginning to happen. Halo 3 is edging ever closer to release and details/rumours are coming to fruition.
Hopefully this will help add weight to our findings here at 7th Columnist as we’ve still a thing or two left for your enjoyment and shall be posting more on this soon.
In the meantime… get very excited.
