Trailer: Halo 3 ViDoc: Et 2am Brute?December 20th at 2am PST (Pacific Standard Time) the US English version of our next “ViDoc” will go live. What’s a Vidoc, you ask? A Video-Documentary. What’s it about, you ask? It’s about Brutes in Halo 3, but before we say more, read the following caveats just so there’s no confusion: Price: Free NOT Available in: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Republic Of, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan · There are no finished graphics in the documentary, and everything you see is a work in progress. · This will be available initially only on Xbox Live Marketplace. · The first version of the Vidoc, US English, will be live at 2am, PST. · The rest of the localized language versions will be parceled out afterwards, hopefully within 24 hours. Please be patient. · We will make another, non-marketplace version available relatively soon. · It runs for seven minutes. · Standard definition and high definition variants will be available. The documentary will run for almost exactly seven minutes (coincidence? UNLIKELY!) and contains a first peek at the bad guy you will grow to love and hate in Halo 3. Well, mostly hate, but you will love fighting him. You’ll see what amounts in a way to the first glimpse at Campaign content, but don’t get too excited. Everything you see here is a work in progress, and I’m afraid you won’t be seeing anything like finished graphics. This is just a chance to talk about the design philosophy and production behind what’s going to become a very important part of the next game.
