Halo Sequel Trailer Released
8:23 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
While the original game is still making its way to the Mac and PC, Bungie fans have written in with word that the first trailer for Halo 2 is now available. If you haven't played the first game in the series, you might want to hold off watching it for fear of spoilers, but others might be interested to see hints of where the storyline is headed. While the original version of the trailer was released as a Microsoft Windows Media Player 9 file, Bungie.org quickly scored various quality versions in a more Mac-friendly QuickTime format. A number of mirrors are now listed on their page in two resolutions at 27MB and 17MB.
For those interested in a behind-the-scenes look at how the trailer was made, Bungie.net has posted the first of a two-part series, talking with Joseph Staten about making the video. He discusses their strategy for moving forward with the trailer, the number of revisions needed, and the process for putting it all together. For the full scoop give the interview a read, and also watch for the second part to be posted soon and discuss the trailer's audio.
The original Halo is still on its way to the Mac via porting house Westlake Interactive and should be available some time next summer.
