Halo 3 Beta and New Vidoc “Is Quisnam Protero Damno!”

The new ViDoc has been released. If you haven’t had the chance to watch it, i highly recommend that you do. Lots of great information inside the seven minute video. First look at the bubble shield at work, the trip mine, the reason for bringing the Halo1 Rifle back and much more. The Halo3 hype machine is back and its fully functional.

NOTE: All of the game footage in this doc was taken during the Alpha stage and isn’t even representative of what you’ll see in the Public Beta, let alone the final game. You will see frame rate skips, unfinished animation and graphical features that will change come Fall. All the footage is clearly marked Alpha. You’re looking at the features here folks, not the final quality bar – which we’ve set pretty high. Your next taste of that will be in May.

With that, Halo 3 has been officially announced and it is set to open on May 16 12:00 AM PDT and will be running until June 6th. Blasphemy you say? I agree, but what can we do? The beta that everyone has been waiting for is only going to last less than a month and i see many sleepless nights on my calendar.

In this short period you will be able to test:

  • 3 new maps
    • Valhalla
    • High Ground
    • Snowbound
  • A variety of gameplay types both familiar and new
  • A new grenade type
  • A completely different class of weapon
  • Some of the enhanced online functionality they plan to bring to the game
  • New guns
  • New vehicles
  • The mysterious “X-Button” function.

So those of you who were able to secure your invite into beta, be it by purchasing a specially marked copy of Crackdown, Rule of Three or Halo3 Beta Sign up. I will see you online.
