clearly microsoft has NOT BEEN PAYING ENOUGH ATTENTION. IF THEY HAD PLAYED THE GAME THEY KNOW THAT THE JET PACKS CAN'T FLY THAT HIGH

Yes, not only she dies, but she dies on a advertisement video.

Don't think it was MS, it seemed more Fox & Universal.

at the time Peter/neil were approached, Peter was still fighting for LOTR money/rights with New Line, and All the production companies wanted Rights, to which M$ said hell no, as well as Bungie and Peter. So it got put on the back burner and Neil went on with District 9.

It isn't about her death, it appears to be about the story behind how she loses her arm and what happened to the last noble six. They made a prequel for the prequel.

Yup. She has her normal arms there.
I am not sure it is intentional.

You know what since this is pre arm loss for Kat, is it safe to assume the bomb arming is the way N7 died?
Isn´t he the one they talk about in the reveal trailer (beginning of the game) ?

Also, she could have been just taken down there but still alive. And she didn't seem to have the robotic arm?
I didn't look for it in the trailer, but the suit they build had it iirc, so I assume this does.

Well, there is Maria, she was a Spartan who had kids (Halo Graphic Novel).

It better be. I believe all this stuff is from "where it all began", so it's probably, as someone said, what happened to the earlier Noble 6 before the current one (ie, the player) joins in and how Kat loses her arm.

Also I'm not sure it would be good to show one of the main members die on a trailer.

From the beginning you know the end.

It's also clearly the planet Reach at the end. "Where it all began" is in reference to the Halo trilogy.

I really liked the way the shields went on the Covenant ship, the tessellated mesh of it makes it seem much more uniform and precise than I had imagined.

Yes, they spent some serious time building that suit, filming, and then editing this to go , "Ooops, we forgot she had a robotic arm."

I want to know how you guys think the Actor could possibly wear a what would look like a robotic arm unless she's missing that arm in real life?

Fuck this shit if it's a post-robotic arm spoiler... But if I'm wrong then it's all good.

It can be done with CG, just like all the Elites and explosion and shit you see around.

Molten armor, right arm, left side of picture.

Myth-busted.


EDIT: A look at the underarmor leading out of her upper shoulder leads me to believe there is separation of the arm from body

Hey guys, i was wondering if there was a list of Features that are in the game... Not the massively huge Firefight list, just a run down of everything for example: Campaign, Matchmaking in Campaign, Split-Screen Campaign, Forge, Firefight etc....

That was pretty fucking awesome, even on my iphone. Can't wait to watch this when I get home on the big screen.

I'm guessing that this is the pre-cursor to Kat losing her arm and the death of the guy you get to replace in the game. Can't wait to see more (I didn't seen Carter or that assassination pic that was leaked a few days ago. Did I just miss it on a tiny picture?).

VV Edit: Gotcha VV

It happens very fast, but Carter does assassinate the elite.

On Xbox? I used to play Halo 2 on XBox with my old gamertag (Mik2121) back when Halo 2 got released, but when I check that account on xbox.com it says he (me) has not played any game so I guess it would not count.

Well, I can't even access the goddamn account anymore so I'm stuck with this idiotic gamertag now (M1k2121............).
Just pay the 800 points to get it changed to something you like.

GameTrailers TV has a teaser up for this week's episode. They will supposedly show a campaign mission that hasn't been shown yet and they have an interview with Marty lined up as well. This excites Ram, right?
Want to see the marty interview, but not yet another campaign mission (wtf bungie, enough)... :/

:O :O :O

Now this was awesome.

As he said, it happens. It's at around 0:22, but it's not lit like on that photo we saw. You actually see mostly the silhouette of the assassination because there's some fire on the background.

I know, but the only nickname I want is Mik2121, and it's already taken by my old and inactive account.. But yeah, M1k2121 just looks so lame...

Well done. I like that some of the vibrant Halo color scheme came through despite all the smoke and grit. It captured the art style from the game, which I wasn't expecting after the Landfall and ODST live action trailers. Another nice detail was the shield on the ship warping as it blew.

Nice job, Frankles.

Oh, as for the people who think this is "pre-robotic arm" and pre-Reach, It isn't look here.

"Deliver hope is a dramatic depiction of the sacrifice made by noble team on the battlefield."

That would seem to indicate that it is on Reach, especially since it's worded "the sacrifice" not A sacrifice."

The trailer was worth the wait. It did occur to me that there could be spoilers, but I'll be surprised if the fate of one of Reach's central characters turns out to have been revealed so casually.

After four viewings I still can't tell if Kat's arm was meant to be robotic or not.

Maybe pre-robotic arm and pre-noble 6? That Spartan on the ship goes MIA, no?

Someone make a thread for that, it shits all over the Other M one (which was great too).

The arm thing was probably a budget/time decision, don't overthink it guys. And this is not actually from the game, so don't worry about spoilers and whatnot, have you guys forgot about the previous Halo advertising campaigns?

Agree, it's just dramatized: Noble Team doing something heroic and critical during Reach's defense, dying in the process. I'm guessing that mission or series of events isn't in the game.

Yeah, hence "dramatic depiction." That's what I got out of it anyway.
