This weekend Matt Soell of Bungie Studios kept his promise to keep gamers informed on the development progress of this long-awaited title which is still quite far from completion. Without further ado, here an excerpt from the update he posted to Halo.bungie.org's forums:
- We're nailing down the final elements of the game - lists ofHalo should be released for the Mac at some point after the shooter's release on the X-Box console.
characters, weapons, net game types and options. The weapon list is
pretty extensive; players should have fun finding their favorites.
Things are still uncertain enough that giving out an actual number would
be premature, but I think it's safe to say you'll have a nice friendly
double-digit figure when you add them all up. And those are just the
ones players can use.
- Jaime is speccing out the various net games as completely as possible.
Again, we can't say too much here because who knows how many of them willactually end up in the game. We're trying to cover all the usual basesbut there may be some unusual (read: brand new) game types as well.There are also some interesting ideas being tossed around for how toscale net games up for larger numbers of players, though exactly how many players we're talking about is still entirely up in the air.
