Halo 2 multiplayer is being demoed for the first time, and the crowd cheered very loudly. This particular map is in Zanzabar. Each suit in Halo 2 multiplayer is very customizable. In the demo, one person is a covenant and one person is a master chief guy. You can have two different weapons, one in each hand. He killed the covenant enemy and picked up his weapon. All the vehicles have been overhauled, and all are fully destructible. He blew off one wing and then the other, destroying it bit by bit; very impressive. Same can be done with the Warthog, which now is equipped with a rocket launcher. And, the more damaged your vehicle is, the harder it is to drive.
The Halo 2 demo continues, and they are showing off the physics models by blowing up the warthog. Now he's talking about the demo that will be playable on the show floor at E3. They will have a CTF (capture the flag) map that will be fully playable. It's basically a quick flyby of the level so people know where the weapons and stuff are located.
Official street date for Halo 2 announced: November 9th
. In fact the guy tatooed the Halo 2 logo and release date on his arm. Set in skin, so to speak. There will be a huge television ad campaign.
