The "story so far" describes the Flood's intentions as a "ferociously intelligent plan."

12 "shots" x 3 round bursts = 36 bullets, just like H2.

I don't know man, it sounds like they are implying that a different way... maybe, not.

Looks like they moved the MG on the Scorpion, its now on the deck instead of integrated in the turret. Either that or its now a two person vehicle, letting the passenger work a front facing MG with the co-ax MG still in place. Or neither. Or both. Edit: The wraith got similar treatment.

I was surprised that they updated the site in such a manner. What was most interesting to me is not only is the Arbiter back :cool: but the Elites are the Human's allies in one form or another. Another thing that surprised me is that they showed a silhouette of a Human Flood Combat Form, and that they confirmed the presence of these creatures in the game. And they did it so soon, since the game won't be out for at least another five or six months. Perhaps Voc, you're analysis of the leaked script was indeed correct? If so, a kudos to you and this site, my friend. Also, from what I was able to discern, the Elite's armor seemed much sleeker than before, and might in some ways more resemble what they wore in the Halo Wars trailer. Another thing that was interesting is that the Gravemind is a part of the Flood evolutionary line, and that it was stopped by the Forerunner's mass suicide and firing of the Halos. Wait a minute: Gravemind stopped by the Halos? What is going on here? I was also happy to see that the Drones, Grunts, Jackals, Hunters, and Brutes are there too. Looks like the whole gang's here! As for that M6D, I have to say that I am happy too; I enjoyed head shots with that gun immensely, and given that it is very different and probably inferior to the other scoped weapons, it should be interesting to see how this plays out. :ninja: Finally, if the site is updated like this so early, what does this suggest about release dates and the games current progress? Aside from being in the Beta to final phase, perhaps it will be released in September after all. Things so far strongly suggest that to me, so I guess that is a very likely possibility.

Banshee now capable of a "limited hover" Edit: Also, John is the "last of the Spartan II warriors." No Spartan buds in SP I guess.

Should be: Banshee again capable of a "limited hover.

/technically, before it was unlimited hover...

Am I reading incorrectly (Sorry, Sub, but you definitely were - the BR still has 36 bullets in a clip which enables it to fire 12 shots - most easily visible in the Last Resort vid that just leaked about 2 and a half minutes in) or does the Carbine now hold 36 rounds in its clip? WHA? Other things: the Gravemind has a memory of last time. I really hope that the turrets in the Scorpion and Wraith are for passengers, a gameplay change that looks feasible based on the cosmetic changes. I'm glad the Banshee hovers again. Thank God. M6D. Wow. The website fails to mention Halo PC under the "Games" section and says that Halo 1 was for 1-4 players.

I see John is referred to as "the last fighting member" of the Spartans (my italics). Interesting. Wonder if that's a shout-out to us novel-readers.

EDIT: Oop, that's only on the story section. He's the last of the Spartans on the character page. :unsure:

If the Scorpion/Wraith is now a 2 person vehicle, I wonder if the driver gets the MG and the other person fires the main cannon, or if its stays basically the same, but the second person gets a heavy MG.

Either way, Voc and Sharpe can now let their powers combine.

There may be some surprises about the M6D, both good and bad, that hasn't been released. Blaze, can you cap those images of vehicles/weapons.
