Halo 3 - 360 - Preview
E3 2006 First Look Trailer Preview
One of the games that I was really looking forward to seeing unveiled at this year’s E3 was HALO 3, and unfortunately that didn’t happen. However, there was a short trailer running that pretty much squashes the “there will be no HALO 3” rumor … and here’s what I got to see.
The opening shot shows a wrecked ship, maybe, since it’s really dark. Suddenly, a ghostly static crackle emerges in the middle of the screen, falls silent, then appears again. It pops back up shortly thereafter, then more frequently, and suddenly the figure of a woman’s face emerges in a ghostly electrical aura … and fans will recognize it as none other than Cortana. “Wake up” she says, and following a short dialogue, you see Master Chief emerge from the wreckage from the ending of HALO 2, where he crashes to earth after trying to stop the Covenant invasion.
Master Chief casually walks up the edge of a cliff, and as the camera pans out you see Covenant ships, Banshees, etc. flying overhead and heading to a city on earth as a large vortex opens up in the clouds overhead. Looks like Master Chief will be locking and loading to kick some Covenant tail on his homeworld sometime in the future.
