QUOTE (Poster from original site I found it on)
Unless you mean, "Wow, you really can't tell anything from these screens since they're blurry cropped pics from a phone" I don't follow. These screens don't look like anything more than Halo (insert number here), and don't mean anything since these are shots of na alpha version anyway.

I'm more interested in the weapons and HUD elements that are being shown in the screens. The needle/carbine hybrid looks interesting as well as the ability to view your squadmates' status in the bottom left corner. It would also appear that a health bar has made it's return to Halo.

New Carbine
new carbine that shoots needles, and explodes when 3 needles are hit

BR

it is a one shot battle rifle with 12 rounds, pretty powerful and effective long range.

Perks

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.


It's been out a while,

Leak

On November 5, 2009, several video game websites reported that several fuzzy screenshots, supposedly from Reach, were leaked on the Major League Gaming forums. These screenshots allegedly showed a new needle-firing carbine, a 12-round rifle, and a new HUD showing the names and current health of squad mates. Microsoft, owner of the Halo IP, declined to comment.


I didn't know about it until now, but for those who still haven't I might as well bring it to your attention.

The weapons look awesome, I'll give it that.
Not really an uber-halo fan or anything but I liked ODST because it's more realistic than Mister Chef jumping around with double SMGs and being impossible to kill.

Though I'll probably still get this even if you go a Spartan in it, I guess.

Not confirmed (as of I know of) but there will be Spartans mentioned. I don't know whether you play as a Spartan or a Marine
QUOTE (Wiki)
    "I need you in that fight, Noble One... Noble One, come in... Noble One, do you read me?"
    —Unknown UNSC commanding officer[1]

Noble One (true name unknown) was the term of address for an unknown person involved in the Battle of Reach.

In the Halo: Reach announcement trailer, Noble One is repeatedly hailed by his/her commanding officer, but does not respond: eventually, the transmission is interrupted when Sierra-259 calls the officer.

By the look of that you could be either. But Halowiki says...
As suggested by the License Plate Eggs in Halo 3: ODST, Noble One might be a Spartan, numbered 220.

And Team Squad commands or something, (as seen in second pic)

Eventhough I enjoy playing a game of Halo now and then with friends (but beware: after one or two matches I'm sick and tired of it)... I really hate the fanchise. I doesn't appeal to me and frankly I think it's rather garbage. This is what you get when you balance things too much which isn't good in my opinion.

But anyways, this looks promising. Weapons look somewhat more appealing. Though they lost my interest when I read about perks. Call of Duty got influenced over the years by Halo (regenerative health/*inser more HALO console FPS influences*). But now it's the other way around. I think they don't like the fact that MW/MW2 is so popular on the consoles.

Anyways... might be fun online. We'll see it's way too early to make these speculations I guess.

Ah, these screenshots have finally made it to GTAForums. I saw these a while back. Screenshot 6 looks like a cross of the carbine and needler.

Looks f*cking awesome, I was already mildly excited about Reach, and now this just doubles that anticipation. It's so awesome seeing that they've added new weapons as well, the old Halo standards we're getting old as it was. Hope they can reinvigorate the series with this one.

There will definitely be Spartans, since Sierra 259 says "we've got Spartans on the ground sir, we're not going anywhere" at the end of the trailer.

Back when Halo 2 was popular this would have made me super excited. Halo 3 ruined the franchise for me. Halo 2 just had...something... that made it tons of fun online and offline. Halo 3 was lacking in both those aspects imo.

These have me very excited. inlove.gif

Thing is though, are these not going to be older weapons than the ones in ODST and such?

Another average FPS game that will win GOTY has the video game industry lost its originality?

Halo with lack of originality?

Your a f*cking 2 ton rambo Megaman fighting against blindly religious aliens on a crusade because the Aliens don't know that they will kill all life in the galaxy by activating a massive Doughnut planet created by a bunch of extinct older aliens who died fighting a parasite.

And thats not even getting into it.

No PC version, then it suck! But if they make a version for PC but only for Windows 7 (like they did in Halo 2 for Windows Vista only), then it still suck! mad.gif

Cool trailer, looks good.

Halo is literally made for the 360. Halo 2 Vista was an unoffical port (not from Bungie). You wanna play Reach, get a 360. Simple as that.

News on Halo 3 says there's gonna be footage of Reach on some TV show or something. Check it out if you've got Halo 3

The trailer is up on Waypoint and I probably watched it 10 times in a row, haha. I'm such a Halo nerd. That bit at the end is odd. I don't remember Elites having those spiky teeth. I'm looking forward to fighting them again, though.

If you want Bungie's official version (you know, HD, not blurry, etc), check out their site.

All of the Halo campaigns were kinda lame, well except for ODST. ODST brought a new light to the franchise.

Hope the Reach campaign is interesting. Thank god we dont have to play as Master Chief again. Hes the most overrated gaming hero of all time.

Yes you are, I've seen a couple dozen of your posts in the Official Halo Topic, hopefully soon I'll get my new computer and that much needed better and faster Internet so I can actually play online (7 years too late to do so in fact blush.gif )

Apparently, EB Games accidentally leaked some new screens from the current issue of Game Informer. Here are some that were swiped before they could take them down.

Edit - Dammit, paps!
