    -= Halo 2 Anticipation Thread =-

    Discussion started by Crimsøn - May 14, 2004

    I thought about makin this earlier instead of posting
    this shit in whatever video game thread was around...
    and Weapon X pushed for it so here we go...

    8 min Halo 2 trailor, fresh from E3
    This video also appears are newly made Halo discs, (in high res)
    replacing the game demos...also has making/commentary videos.


    Multiplayer videos, featuring Elites, duel wielding, and formentioned commentary videos
    Sorry mac users, only comes in windows format

    New features for Halo 2
    • Improved graphics, physics
    • Vastly improved AI (Elites won't just stand around waiting...they will HUNT you, move objects, scale walls, etc...Marines will also be much smarter, you can command them, make them drive the vehicles, send squads, etc..)
    • Dual Wielding (Check the video above)
    • Virtually everything will be destructable and can be used for cover (Different
      materials will provide longer cover [i.e. a wooden table vs a totalled car])
    • In multiplayer you can choose to be a Spartan (Master Chief) or an Elite
    • The warthog will have different turrets mounted (rocket, chain gun, etc)
    • You can lower your gun and run twice as fast
    • New covenant Species and weapons
    • OSDTs (BAD ass marines) and new human weapons
    • EVERYTHING else in the game will be much more fine tuned

    Now for some pictures....

    The ATV

    The all new Battle Rifle
    (The battle rifle. When in normal mode, it fires short bursts of fire, but zoomed, it fires single rounds, reminiscent of the pistol. One weapon with two distinct modes adds more strategic stuff than you'd expect.)

    Pfftfft, don't be bringing that jazz up in here,
    that's not what the threads about foo.

    Playing as elites in multiplayer is gonna be
    great...plus energy blades...fuuuuun.

    The story of Halo 2 takes place after Halo (duhhh)
    when Master Chief arrives at Earth he looks out the
    window of his ship only to see a scarred Earth being
    bombarded by Covenant forces...so he opens the hatch
    (the air pressure's blowing all crazy like) and he just
    fuckin jumps out the ship and free falls.

    ^ The Halo 2 trailor linkage )

    So yea, Covenant are fucking up Humanity and
    you have to come save the day.

    Halo 2 will also fully utilize Xbox live, so you can play
    around the world, or around the block.

    That's it for now...

    So, the game launches on November 9th, 2004, but we bet you can't wait until then to check out what the special, limited collector's edition looks like, so, here, for the first time ever, are pics of the box prototype.

    Halo 2: Release Date and Collector's Edition Unveiled
    Halo 2 will be available in stores on November 9, 2004. That's the long and the short of it. You'll be playing Campaign, multiplayer or both on November 9th. And if you pre-order, you'll have the chance to purchase an extra-fancy collector's edition in a metal box.

    More news from E3...
    During E3 Bungie set up a special room to
    test out Halo 2, and a few lucky bastards got
    to play each othet for 30 minutes each


    The game is going to have all the stuff you'd expect. It'll support voice communication, you can even leave voice messages when you're trying to set up a game. You can form clans - your can customize emblems - custom colors - a blue metal suit, with yellow secondary colors. Being able to customize your player is kind of awesome. Naturally, Covenant Elites can do the same thing.

    The players also figured out the new tracking rocket system. A locked on rocket can follow a speeding vehicle in a vicious arc, It's pretty depressing when you think you're safely out of range and you hear that "WHOOOOOSH!"

    But boarding was a hoot. It makes those close up vehicle skirmishes all the more frightening. If you try to smash another player against a rock wall, there's always a danger he could jump up, board you and kill you with your own ride. We also watched a new phenomenon - the Rocket Hog parasite. Since you can board any part of a vehicle, a red player can board the rocket turret of a Blue-driven Hog. The blue player's only recourse is to abandon the hog, or drive the enemy rocket jerk somewhere he can do less damage - then of course they have to square off against each other. Results can be hilarious.

    Those pictures won't look as good when they're on a television at 60hz interlaced running at less than half the resolution they're posted at here.
