Halo Becoming First-Person Shooter?
8:47 AM | Charles George | Comment on this story

Today Bungie Software confirmed that their hotly-anticipated squad based shooter had moved from the third-person perspective to the first person shooter style when outside vehicles. This information came via the new video shown at Microsofts Gamestock show yesterday. The Video displayed a combination of vehicular combat from the third-person perspective and shooting sequences in the first person. After years of shots showing a game played from the third person, as well as movies and live demos with this perspective, few seemed to believe that the game had undergone this transition. When asked about whether this change was permanent Bungie representative Matt Soell had this to say:

"That's probably the way it will be in the final game, though as always we reserve the right to change our minds."
First Person fans often cried out for Halo to be viewed from the first person; it looks like they'll get their wish. If you feel you need to cry out, be sure to visit the IMG forums and yell away! Halo will be released in the fall for the X-Box and then shortly after for the Mac and PC.
