It appears that the first photos of what could very well be Bungie’s last Halo game, Halo: Reach, have been leaked onto the web today, via the MLG Message Board.
User “Tom Morello,” just recently started a thread showing off the blurry photos. He continued to update the thread throughout the day, showing a variety of weapons, thought each pretty blurry and containing the same username branded watermark.
A few of the weapons shown appear familiar, such as the needler and plasma pistol, however, some aren’t as familiar, like the Needler rifle thing for example. Morelle also made a few comments about the HUD, which appears to be a completely new one, stating that it “lists teammate names as well as shows what “perks” players are carrying. In a later post, Morello said he was carrying three of these “perks” when he took the photos: “sprinting”, “cloaking”, and “hologram.”
When asked by another user as to where he managed to snap these photos, Morello responded by saying “at Microsoft HQ, btw, in a office.” Then went to explain his motives for taking the photos were simply to show the MLG community the Battle Rifle, which failed to make an appearance in Halo: ODST.
Morello had a few interesting things to say about this particular photo.
“This is what the HUD looks like. In the bottom left, you can see your squadmates health and names. Right above the radar shows what perks you are carrying. When I played there were 3 perks-sprinting, cloaking, and halogram. The sprinting makes you run when you hold LB, cloaking makes you invisible (when you cloak your radar jams and you can’t really hear anything around you). The halogram creates a hologram of yourself, so enemies will shoot at both.”
Looking at the screens, do you guys think Halo: Reach is much different than Halo 3 in the presentation and look overall? Comment below, no registration required.
