i wish Blur Studios would make a full motion picture, does not have to be a halo film. They have the best cgi trailers out there and i would love to see a full blown film one day from them.


and no, the gameplay will not look like this. This is Cgi.

Looks freaking amazing wow and yes I know it is just CGI cut scenes, but it sure does look amazing.

Okay, found out the trailer is just CG. So we will have CG cinematics rather than in-engine ones?

But awesome none the less. Hope the actual graphics fidelity is as close as possible :)

Woah.. Goosebumpy blast from the past :)

Though I'm slightly confused:

These are pre-renderd cutscenes by Blur Studio?

So we will have pre-rendered cutscenes in H2 Anniversary?

They don't look in-engine nor did they mention it, so just confirming.

well I would get this just to listen to Johnson's awesome comments again. maybe they will add an extra scene that finally shows how he got off the first halo.

Well, that scared the Sony tools away from the comment section.

People can say what they want, but that looked amazing.

Man, this brings back memories in a new way.  Halo 2 kind of rubbed me wrong because of the mixups in gameplay that I didn't really get used to (freaking Jackels and their sniper rifles), and the whole elite rebellion storyline was a twist, and the boss fight at the end was odd for a Halo game.

I eventually came around.  This cinematic trailer looks good, and I like what they did with Keyes.  I felt that Papa Keyes from the Halo 1 Anniversary Edition didn't look as tough as the original, but I like what I'm seeing here so far.

Can't wait for long online sessions!!!

I'm currently interviewing new friends for casual games. Fun overrides expertise. Must be currently playing Titanfall.

If they did it about a remastered Halo, what can we expect from Halo 5? I ask myself...

Every time I here the Halo theme, I have flashbacks. I haven't played any of them since Halo 2 so I'm really excited for this.

Yes this looks great. Goodbye Halo 2 cut-scene texture pop in. Hello HD. Just like Halo Wars they did a great job.

@spartanx169x I totally agree. I wish it was in-engine though. Either way I don't really care since they were cut scenes.

In this day and age, I think they should still stick to in-engine cutscenes rather than doing pre-rendered CG ones. (Like the trailer above)

Texture pop-ins ain't gonna happen in this generation of graphics engines :)
