Bungie at E3
July 9, 2007, 9:01 pm
Filed under: Campaign, Halo, Halo 3, Multiplayer, News

It’s coming. E3 is nearly upon us.

But what are we expecting to get out of it this year in Halo terms? What is it you’d most like to see?

Single Player Campaign?

More Multiplayer Maps?

Elites? The Flood?

New Vehicles and Weapons?

Personally, I’m hoping for a bit of everything, and expecting nothing. That way I can’t fail to be blown away. I guess we’ll see a bit of single player, perhaps in demo rather than video form and hopefully a little more multiplayer too showing off the new next-gen Elite models.

Lets not forget Halo Wars either, which was recently announced to be being shown to the press behind closed doors at the event.

What are you expecting from Bungie this E3?

The countdown has begun, so let us know your hopes and expectations below.

Comment by kenney727

no single player, i want that 2 be a suprise. prob just multiplayer stuff and confirmation of “speculated” elements such as the 4 new armour types

Comment by trigger happy mole

I hope they reveal what the hornet is.
Also, some new multiplayer maps, new equipment, weapons, armour, etc.
And maybe a new trailer to hold us to September.

Comment by D-thunda

yea no single player but multiplayer stuff and some info on more equipment they said they have in the game

Comment by kenney727

I agree wit everyone more multiplayer, and i’d like to see what the elites look like in MP as well.

Comment by BigRedz

i would like to see new weapons

and maps
i want to see how many NEW weapons there will be
=(
i want h3 soooo bad

Comment by ian

The guys at Bungie really needto siff up the Single player campaign….In the wake of a number of FPS being showcased on the show,Halo 3 Single player campaign might just get an overtly Rudeshock from Irrational’s Bioshock,Valve’s Episode 2 and Crytek’s Crysis…hope they show the medai they have to offer a lot beyond what everyone is actually expecting to offer….I heard that the HAlo 3 presentation is going to be best In Microsoft’s presentation…hope they actually live upto the fact…cause the competititon is certainly stiff

Comment by Neelesh

Can’t wait. Halo 3’s going to have an epic campaign that will make you feel proud and sad inside that you Finished the Fight. Very dramatic game.

Comment by DEL360X

I can’t wait!!

Comment by Master Tricks

bungie.net and xbox.com will have some cool stuff for us on the iNteRnEtZ!

Comment by DEL360X

The Hornet was basicly the human version of the ghost

Comment by 071823

it be awesome if they made some new multiplaya maps. I’d be happy if they made single player awesome to…just for a surprise. But multiplayer gaming is sumthing im looking forward to.

Comment by Karbon

Isn’t the hornet a human ghost vehicle thing?

Comment by Karbon

i thought it was like a pelican but smaller

but in the multiplayer vidoc u can see it i think and it looks like human ghost

Comment by ian

also i have confirmed that Warthog Inc is an actual level

look in the multiplayer vidoc and u can see a picture of a warthog on like a racetrack or highway

and also in the multiplayer vidoc i saw the pregame lobby thing and it said

Select Mode
“SOMETHING ELSE” (I forgot what it says.)
Map: Warthog Inc.

i think

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

OMG! That new Halo 3 was awesome! Someone send me an mp4 video download link for my PSP, Please!

Comment by DEL360X

My xbox 360 is getting repaired so I cant download the trailer yet

Comment by DEL360X

Ok, I just kind of did a review on the latest video. This is what I saw:

Fuel Rod Cannon,
New Warthog (There is no turret, but it has back seats to hold more teammates.),
UNSC ship (It looks like a jet.),
Detachable elite turret,
Brute sniper rifle,
Covenant ship upgrades (Scarab, Shadow, etc.)
What the Elite will look like,
Large Covenant Mortar gun,
Gravity Hammer,
Radar Jammer,
Jet packs (debatable)
Covenant weapon you may have seen in the “ET tu Brute” ViDoc (Description: Long, pointy, and purple.),
Hunter (enemy) upgrades/changes,
Drone (enemy) upgrades/changes,
4 grenade types (Look for it when the drones come, and later on [It looks like a jelly bean but brought out on the ends some.),
Brute Chopper in action,
Some kind of new equipment that looks like a half circle with a vertical line through it. (I don’t think it is Radar Jammer, but who knows.),
Possibly drivable Pelicans (Pelicans also have some minor changes.)

That is about all the new things to Halo 3 that I could find, that weren’t also in the beta.

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

for the new equipment i mentioned i meant the symbol it shows when u pick it up not the equipment it self

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

The jet was a longsword, the last grenade is probably a smoke grenade, and the ark is very big (Seen from space big….)

Comment by 071823

I also remember seeing evry odd markings on the earth, the jackal sheilds look diffrent, you will also see npcs (not mariens or coveanant, people), a holographic prophet.

Comment by 071823

and grunts can drive ghosts too.

Comment by 071823

grunts drive ghossts on halo 2 n00bieface lol

i saw the prophet thing but idk wtf it was so i didnt mention it
and jakal shields arent important unless i can use them lol but i would have a bubble shield anyway lol i

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

That was pretty damn kool man. Cant wait till september…

Comment by BigRedz

smoke grenade? hmmmm….. i dont know, might ruin the whole fast pace of halo and a smoke nade isnt an offensive weapon unlike frag, sticky and spike. mind you, we thought that equipment would ruin the game and it just made it that much more cooler!!! i say, go Bungie!

Comment by trigger happy mole

also, just noticed from a new campaign screen in 1st person, he has AR and Pistol as secondary. possibly the standard mission loadout?

Comment by trigger happy mole

in the video, at 1 min 12, there is new equipment. it looks sorta like a grenade with half a shield around it. possibly radar scrambler, but i dont see how that would be usefull in campaign. so it is something unseen before. hmm……

Comment by trigger happy mole

arby and chief, side by side. wooooo hoooooo!!!!

Comment by trigger happy mole

can anyone please upload a link to download the trailer in mp4 format? Please!

Comment by DEL360X

Wow that was amazing

Comment by Master Tricks

Stuff i noticed in frame 00:00:49.307 you can see that a brute has a strange gun on his back and he is dropping a red orb piece of equipment.

In frame 00:02:11.723 you can see so far away that the forerunner ship is in view and in the top left of the frame you can see a covenant ship that is moving and it has to be miles away. The environments are huge

To those who say it looks like halo two I suggest going to frame 00:01:00.507 and look at the detail in the buggers. They have WAY more polygons in them than they did in halo 2.

Other things I noticed are;

Frame 00:01:13.107, what is the piece of equipment the chief is rocking in the upper left hand corner?

Frame 00:01:15.382, look at the bad arse hologram of the prophet on the left. Also we get to see the 4th grenade emblem in this frame.

Frame 00:01:27.982, what is the strange blue thing with and odd yet symmetrical black triangular top coming out of the planet?

Frame 00:01:39.707, warthog with 4 seats.

Frame 00:01:42.157, is just simply stunning; the lighting on the base to the right is amazing! Move slowly ahead you see that we have a new scarab, 2 banshees, some strange new craft, 3 warthogs and a ton of guys in or on each all fighting at once!

Frame 00:01:44.607, shows the arbiter on top of this same scarab with a new gun laying waste to the troops on top.

Frame 00:01:46.707 we see that to the left of this same battle we also have 3 covy drops ships , 3 banshees and what looks like some kind of human battle ship. Keep in mind this is obviously the same place that frame 00:01:42.157 was going on at and the angle was different so that would put 5 banshees, 3 drop ships, the new scarab (with a deck full of guys), 3 warthogs (with 2- 3 troops in each) Some kind of battle cruiser, the strange new craft between the 2 banshees from the right, the chief and the arbiter all in one place all fighting with zero frame drop. SCALE is what halo 3 is obviously about.

Comment by Virus e

if u have a book about halo equipment, it has a similar item, it is a flash grenade with spark, thats what i think it is…

Comment by mastercheat117

or a napalm grenade would make more sense because of the game achievements.

Comment by mastercheat117

i found 00:38 it looks like a brute throwing someone wearing the E.V.A armour Check it out..

Comment by BigRedz

wow not EVA armor u dumbass

its a wormen with a hard hat u jack ass

wow u r retarded

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

Can anyone convert the trailer into .mp4 format for me please? Thanks in advance!

Comment by DEL360X

“Your World shall crumble!”

Comment by DEL360X

O shit sorry my cpu is on the fritz

Comment by BigRedz

I think I saw a chaingun mounted on a Mongoose.

Comment by DEL360X

u mean a turret on a mongoose!?!?!?!?

yay!!

i hope u saw what u think u saw
cause that could be so tight but it seems like it would be a bit too heavy for a small vehicle like a mongoose

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

wor[k*]men
i meant workmen in that previous post

and i didnt mean to be mean bidredz

also–del360x i can try to find a format for u but i cant do it myself but if u have a 360 u can get the video on the marketplace and then hook up ur hard drive to ur pc which is kinda hard but u can find a tutorial on youtube

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

and is it just me or have not fulfilled more of my diary…

they havent had a new post in a few days…
=( i need my info…and halo 3

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

QUOTING: Virus e- “Frame 00:01:46.707 we see that to the left of this same battle we also have 3 covy drops ships , 3 banshees and what looks like some kind of human battle ship. Keep in mind this is obviously the same place that frame 00:01:42.157 was going on at and the angle was different so that would put 5 banshees, 3 drop ships, the new scarab (with a deck full of guys), 3 warthogs (with 2- 3 troops in each) Some kind of battle cruiser, the strange new craft between the 2 banshees from the right, the chief and the arbiter all in one place all fighting with zero frame drop. SCALE is what halo 3 is obviously about.”

ok i think that mysterious new flying vehicle is actually just a drone…idk why it would be bby itself but when i saw it i thought t was some kind of new weird ship…maybe it is a hornet, but i think it is a drone

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

I have an Xbox 360 with Xbox Live but it’s getting repaired. I’m viewing this site with a PSP. Thats why I would like a .mp4 format video. Please don’t make it more than 20 MB. Thanks!

Comment by DEL360X

That marine in the beginning of the trailer was brave to take on a brute, but if you see some twice your size trying to kill you then I would run. Except if I was Master Chief. PS: Can anyone tell me what the voice says? I think that voice is Gravemind but it sounded different. His voice was a bit more light.

Comment by DEL360X

no prob HMF xxRebornxx, i was just flipin through, and like i said cpu is on the fritz. Thought it was E.V.A armour lol, my mistake complete and totally mine.

Comment by BigRedz

I think the voice sounded like Truth. It sounds like thing he would say.

Comment by Nero_LInk

What did truth say? Remind me please.

Comment by DEL360X

Did I just see Master Chief stick a Magnum in the Arbiter’s neck in the trailer? Heroes meet!

Comment by DEL360X

The trailer shows a new grenade type, a new piece of equipment, the first level (it was a jungle!), co-op and many other things!

Comment by D-thunda

the guy at the beginning of the trailer says..”You are all of you vermin. Cowering in the dirt, thinking what? That you might escape the coming fire. Your world will burn until its surface is but of glass.” I dont think its truth, but it might be.

Comment by BigRedz

“Untill it’s surface is of glass”? Earth is a Halo?

Comment by DEL360X

dont know but in the trailer when the pelicans drop from space their is an object in the distance that kinda looks forunner

Comment by BigRedz

i hope the put in 4 coop on live it will be so fn sick.

Comment by spartanized

i still think the graphics can be improved a lot more. gears looks better. i think they’ll surprise us when the game comes out

Comment by spartanized

the person talking is either a brute or gravemind

Comment by ryguy

I watched the trailer and if Cortana dies in the game IM GONNA BE PISSED!!!

Comment by jaysonfire99

Yeah, you can tell something happened to Cortana. I think the voice is a mix of Truth and Gravemind. “Your World will burn untill it’s surface is but glass.” I think the 3 Arks Burn/Destroy the Ground untill it reveals the exterior of Halo Instilation 001 – Earth.

Comment by DEL360X

3 arks? i thought it
was one what the hell are u talkn bout?

Comment by spartanized

Go to the Achiements & Campaign levels found topic on this site and view not4angel’s comments.

Comment by DEL360X

how does he know for a fact that theres 18 levels and that there are three arks on earth? also how does he know that earth is a halo and all the other stuff he said?

Comment by spartanized

NOOB

Comment by Master Tricks

do u ever think were gonna “finish the fight” with the covenant and not the flood?

Comment by jaysonfire99

I think everyone is going to die

Comment by DEL360X

lol

Comment by x_kenney_x

no mc is gonna sniped in the face and that will be it…
lolz

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

hey i wonder if master chief is gonna die and maby thats when they show his face?

Comment by jaysonfire99

Frankie said that it’s not that important to the story to see his face. Suspicious? Also Ske7ch got sniped in the face by a Jackel Sniper in the “Sierra 117” level in the Halo 3 Campaign Demo that Bungie showed to the press behind closed doors.

Comment by DEL360X

Comment by jaysonfire99

http://s209.photobucket.com/albums/bb60/loganpierce/?start=al%20l

here is a great site for some pictures and confirmations of halo 3

look at them kinda blurry though

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

What magazine is that? I need to know? Cool pics though.

Comment by BigRedz

good find reborn

Comment by x_kenney_x

I cant stop lookin at’em. I am trying to get the blurry to go away, but its no use. My Cpu is kinda fritzy tonight. Do ya think its a gamer pro mag or somtin? I think we’ll be seeing this soon, in stores.

Comment by BigRedz

reborn the site is down what happened and how did you find them

Comment by x_kenney_x

in the mag (link above) lots of info is revealed:

On this site, the post excavator uncovered (by me, none-the-less) is wrong.
that is the ‘mauler’-a brute shotgun weaker than the human shotgun, but dual wieldable!
like the shotguns in marathon.

The hornet is indeed a human banshee, with a driver, and it can carry 2 passengers on the sides.

The gravity hammer CAN be used, and lunges like the sword.
Except it can smash vehicles anbd send them flying and knock grenades away (maybe even equipment!

Speaking of equipment, we have 4 new ones.
the regenerator (which heals shields)
The flare (which blinds anyone who sees it when deployed.
Invincibility- self explanatory but VERY rare.
and the shield- one of the stationery jackal shields.

A new level is guardian (found in the beta code) which is the spiritual successor to lockout

More new vehicles are transport warthog (in the e3 trailer), the prowler which is a brute hog and the elephant, which is a 3 story tall vehicle!
So far, it only appears on sandtrap, and is a mobile base that ANYONE can drive!

those cool things people found in the custom games for customization-confirmed.
halo 3 features the single most customization EVER in an fps.
Voi is mentioned, so the code was right (which means the flood show up in the 5th level.
Also mentioned is the fact that a second player will play as the arbiter in co-op, and sadly, co-op isn’t confirmed…yet! it’s mentioned though!
The meta-game sounds neat-you get points for killing enemies, the cooler the kills, the more points!
Skulls are back and all their effects can be active at once effectively making the game impossible!
At no point you play as arby in single player (unless in co-op) so that gives us a good idea.
in the preview gravemind is mentioned, but it is cut off-if anyone can read this, please tell!

So a basic story:

chief siezes a covenant ship, etc.
gets new armour, crashes into a jungle.
Makes his way to the ark.
then he goes to high charity (to see gravemind?) then he goes back to halo.

Finally-Forge: the halo 3 map editor

When I heard this i thought “ZOMG!Halo 3 is gonna teh suxxorz!” but no- forge allows you to alter the placement of weapons and vehicles in halo 3.
So it’s gonna be great!

So this is all the info I’ve found-post if you find more!

Comment by HUGE NEWS! MUST READ- from D-thunda

Damnit , everywhere i go to look at this , its allready taken down , how did u find this shit ? this was pretty top secret ,it is no where to be found , if u can find a secure link send that

Comment by distinguish

i got the link!!! i got the link!!!! check it out

http://weskeruk.blogspot.com/

Comment by distinguish

soooo!!!! cooooool!!!!

Comment by trigger happy mole

i wish they were more clear so i could see them. I do like the info, thankx to all that found it. Be on the look out for more.

Comment by BigRedz

Hey, if you go to “distinguish”s link, check out the page with the custom variants displayed. In one of the Spartan Variants you can see the “mauler” being held… it’s what we thought was the “excavator.” Also if you look at one of the custom elites on that same page, he’s holding a HUGE cov. weapon… it looks like a big plasma rifle and it’s firing a big blue burst. Maybe THAT is the real excavator. It’s kind of hard to see. Can anyone tell me what the real deal is there? Great link, by the way, Distinguish.

Comment by K-Bizzle the Dizzle

thank you , i am really wondering what the top right spartan is holding? , and the middle elite? , they are huge weapons

Comment by distinguish

i found all the pics that u cant c on the site distinguish gave. Its from thefinalfight.com. heres
the address http://www.thefinalfight.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=955
dont know how to make it a link.

Comment by spartanized

o nvm it did it by its self

Comment by spartanized

ummm so i wish there was a better pic of the brute mauler , and any pic at all of the unsc elephant, that sounds really cool , imagine a moving forrtress loaded with ammo , and u respawn there , i still wonder if the phantom will scamp its way into multiplayer??? same with the pelican

Comment by distinguish

i cant wait to see the new lockout and use all the new weapons/vehicles/variations on the game

halo 3 is going to be better than i thought lol
way good lolzorszzzzzz

Comment by HMF xxRebornxx

If anyone’s seen the new magazine witht he Hornet and prowler and Mauler… there’s a unkown map in there that definetly looks like the new Lockout.

Comment by JBEAU117

Dude JBEAU,in one of the articles underneath the picture of the new Lockout it says “This is Guardian, the spiritual successor to Lockout”

Comment by LiQuiD 0v3rkiLL

i swear some people just dont pay any attention , if he would have read earlier posts he would have seen alot of shit including the level gaurdian, some people just come and post stuff without reading , and then they look dumb , i see this all to often

Comment by distinguish

My bad guys, I haven’t even read the mag yet, just saw pictures. I heard the name but didn’t remember it when i wrote that.

Comment by JBEAU117

wat mag? waz up every body

Comment by BigRedz

thats pretty good , a lil slow moving to me , u can just stop it when ever u want by rolling your mouse over it , so whoever made it should have added some RPMs to this thing, but on other thoughts.. i am really liking the idea of the regenerator.. imagine your team just survived a battle soo u drop the regenerator and bam your whole team now has overshields, your an unstoppable force unless they have the power drainer lol

Comment by distinguish

THE FLOOD! YAH!

Comment by mono20

r we getting an update any time soon? where did he go (7th)?

Comment by spartanized

what is happening i sent tons of updates to this guy where is he!

Comment by lou is da bomb

He’s probably chilling with his wife-to-be, right? He’s getting married and stuff. At least we know when the update comes there’ll be a lot of new information on Halo from the E3 thingie.

Comment by K-Bizzle the Dizzle

omg u guys this dood had better cum back bc this syte is so bad omgggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg i want updatez for realz

Comment by Jim

7th, WHAAER ARTE THOUS!

Me want update

Comment by Samieo

…you don’t suppose he died?

Comment by K-Bizzle the Dizzle

he died and a rabbit came over and stabbed a carrot through his noggin

Comment by Master Tricks

I can assure you all, I am not dead. Apologies for the lack of updates, i’ve been busy sorting out new work commitments that can only be classed as ‘really fucking cool’.

Update on it’s way. Thanks for sticking with us.

Comment by 7th Columnist

more new h3 leaked scans. we get to see the elephant, some green equipment and much more.
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/usermovies/87896.html?playlist=featured

Comment by spartanized

that leaked shit was kool, likin that elephant!

Comment by BigRedz

yea someone needs to analysis it

Comment by spartanized

Dude that elephant was completely awesome. It’s smaller than I expected but the open top makes it a fun banshee target I’ll bet. Hot damn. Those brute shotgun things look pretty schweet, too.

Comment by K-Bizzle the Dizzle

I only speak english, but I got some info. from that.
Of course we get to see the elephant (which is NOT available in forge).
no idea what that green equipment is.
They mention co-op but that will just be about how the second person plays as arby.
they mention 2 levels, ‘Tsavo Highway’ which is the first vehicle based mission in the game.
‘the storm’- i believe this level is where you encounter the new scarab.

If someone could post a link to download that vid, or get pictures of the pages, post a link please.
Also if you speak those 2 languages that they are in, or you know someone who does, translate them.

Note:Prowler, mauler and personal shield shown.

Comment by D-thunda

I heard the level “The Storm” is something to do with the flood, also. It may be a biblical reference since the game seems to be a loose metaphor for the Olde Testament Noah’s Arc thingie. The Storm would be the flood in the metaphor… makes sense that they would put flood in that level. I heard somewhere that this is where the flood first appears on Planet Earth and in the Halo 3 game. This game looks pretty fun, can’t wait until the 25th of September. Wooooooooo!

Comment by K-Bizzle the Dizzle

that green piece of equipment from those foreign mags. is the regenorator. it was in the egm this month.
