There are some new screens as well. I'm going to try to resize them. Containment and Sanctuary really look a lot more fun than I thought they would be.

And if you check page 3 of the image section on gamespot, there's overviews of 3 of the maps. Turf looks so sexy.

Turf!

PS: Turf's overhead shot looks a lot smaller than I was hoping for, but I'm certain it will be grand. Containment and I are having an affair.

That's an affair in a good sense right Voc? Don't tell the wife.

Damn, that video had a nice quality. Everything looked like it was happening live. As for the quality of the guy playing, I'll forgive him because the maps looked so sexy. He needs to turn down the suck though.

What I noticed so far: Turf really is well built for three plots, with the big landmarks. Containment is shit hot. I smell several games of VIP from one base to the other. Scorpions also seem to tie in really well, too. Sanctuary will make for some killer Team Skirmish games. ONE WEEK. One week.

Containment needs to be seen to be belived.

At first I thought it would be another canyon-based Coagulation, with restrictive bases, nowhere to run and everything is out in the open. This creates a difficult objective-based match, because all of these factors work against the one group getting the advantage above the other. This map looks to be the size of Waterworks, if not larger, and it has hundreds of pockets and rocks to use as cover. The base is massive so it can be guarded from positions other than in depths of grenade hell, which is what you get with Coagulation. The map isn't wide-open; apart from the structures that clutter the map and the fact that you can take down a Warthog without a rocket (shoot the mines nearby) the map is curved like an "S" so you can't have snipers shooting from one base clean into the other. It's a grand design and apart from the fact that it will suck on offensive if you spawn without a vehicle, its going to be fun to play. Hell, I just want to fly through it once or twice.

Based on what Brian Jarrard said, I think its quite clear that they're working on Halo 3 to make the deadline of late 2006, which is when the PS3 is looking to launch. They've increased staff via Microsoft, who has doubled it just so they can make the deadline. More downloadable content may not be in the works, apart from additional autoupdates. I'm not bothered by this at all because of two words: HALO. THREE. And I definitely think these maps can hold me over until the killer apps for the Xbox 360, namely Perfect Dark Zero and Battlefield 2.

What I've noticed myself:

Sanctuary:
? One Sword on the map
? Two Ghosts
? Possibly two Snipers
? Turrets

Turf:
? One Warthog
? Buildings are scalable due to the Brute Shot being on a roof (see overhead)
? The Scarab is sexy
? Again, more than one Sniper Rifle

Warlock:
? Shotgun is on the map (possibly two)
? Nice map for FFAs
? No Overshield from what I saw
? At least two Battle Rifles

Containment:
? Very sexy
? Excellent for large teams (provided there's no lag)
? Nice design
? Plenty of cover against snipers

Hot damn, I'm in love with every map I've seen. Especially Containment; the ambiant sounds are amazing, and that goes for all four maps as a matter of fact. I thought I heard bats in Warlock during one of the videos. This explosion of information blows the lid off of everything I expected. Containment looks like a large map worth playing on, Warlock looks great for Rumble Pit, Turf is shaping up to be another Zanzibar, (a very good thing) and Sanctuary is just gorgeous.

Blaze is right. That's not Sanctuary. That's Gemini. What is that? High Charity? Ack, it's too DARK!
