New Halo Info and Screen Shots
2:40 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

While Microsoft continues to tout their X-Box at the Gameloft 2001, more information has been released about Bungie's greatly-anticipated action game, Halo. Included with that information is a new set of screen shots. The images also unveil a new alien character, previously not seen by the public. Of course the shots were taken from the X-Box version, using nVidia's special unannounced card, which is surely as powerful as the Geforce 3. Here are the details:

Huge weapon variety: Vanquish your enemies with a vast array of Human or Covanent weaponry ranging from the stealthy (semi-automatic pistols, alien plasma swords) to the fierce (rocket launchers and flame throwers).


Vehicle & foot-based action: Tackle missions anyway you choose--be it storming an enemy base or taking the wheel or gunnery position of a variety of powerful vehicles. Vehicles range from stolen Covanent flyers & hovercraft to Human buggies, tanks and more.


Indoor & outdoor combat: Fight seamlessly in Halo's ultra-realistic indoor and outdoor environments as you hunt the Covenant in dozens of single player missions and multiplayer battles.


Intense multiplayer shoot-outs: Form a team, choose a role, and fight cooperatively with your friends, battle it out Deathmatch style via intense split screen combat or fight co-op with a friend through the single player missions.


Incredible mission variety: Fight the Covenant in dozens of missions as you uncover the dark secrets of Halo. Among your many objectives - attack enemy outposts, raid underground labs for advanced technology, rescue fallen comrades, steal alien vehicles and weaponry and snipe enemy forces.


Reality-bending special effects: Halo features the most advanced graphic system on the most advanced gaming platform in the world. Gunfire rips off the screen, explosions light up a living room, and environments blur the line between your couch and fantasy.


Rich sci-fi experience: Halo transports gamers into a science fiction universe fresh out of a Hollywood movie. With a detailed twisting story-line, complex characters and cunning enemies Halo will fulfill every sci-fi enthusiasts dream.

For the rest of the info, head over to the X-Box page now and have a look. VoodooExtreme has also scored a couple of new Halo shots, if you're interested. There is no firm date as to when Halo will be coming to the Mac, but it's assuredly after the X-Box release date. Stay tuned as we'll keep you posted on any new information that becomes available.
