Halo 3?

Rumors fly about name change, co-op mode.
by Charles Onyett

March 16, 2006 - Though this could very well be a stinking pile of garbage, a post by someone named DM Duo Maxwell on Xbox.com claims he transcribed an upcoming Game Informer article on Halo 3. According to the post, Halo 3 won't be called Halo 3. Instead, the title will be called Forerunner. Again, this could be total trash. When contacted for a comment, Microsoft unloaded the standard, "Microsoft doesn't comment on rumors or speculation." Make no mistake, this information is entirely speculative, as no credible sources have yet come forward to back the post up.

The only thing that makes the post notable is the level of detail. In addition to the different name, Forerunner will feature large-scale environments, open-ended mission designs and support cooperative play for up to four players. Master Chief is still in the game as well, according to the post, and functions as the main playable character.

Since all of this could be false, that's about as much as we're going to say. We'll have any concrete information as soon as it's available for this highly anticipated game, be it Halo 3 or Forerunner or whatever else happens to get churned out of the rumor mill.





OH MY GOD. four player coop would be the final touch on what will turn out to be one of the best game series' ever

Psyche! Halo 3 it is!

Please watch the trailer. It probably wont mean as much as the rest of you as it will to someone who has played halo 2 addictively for a year, but this, this is incredible.

Nice in-depth Q&A, Bungie:

Q: I noticed the Master Chief's armor was scraped and damaged, what happened to him?

A: Lots of things.


on a side note, any guesses to what the structure is? building another Halo?

I think I read that if you play three hours of Halo 2 online between Feb. 1 - 3 and then sign up at Halo 3.com and are one of the first 13000 or so - which should be about as easy as getting one of those Xbox systems was at Amazon - then you qualify.

I think i'd rather get Crackdown. I've been looking forward to that game as it is, so here is just another reason to buy it.

Just got done watching a 7-minute video about multiplayer and I am already convinced - after seeing the bubble shield, trip mines and the return of the original assault rifle - this is going to be one of my favorite games of all time. I can't see myself leaving the house, signing on here or anything else in the months following release.
