Microsoft didn’t waste any time opening up the Electronic Entertainment Expo with a bang. The first actual gameplay footage was shown during the conventions opening keynote presentation. The game features a more advanced looking HUD and more polished graphics (as expected). The gameplay footage took place inside a sprawling jungle landscape with attacking Covenant forces. Shortly after, a new threat was revealed, giving us what will more than likely be the villains of the second trilogy. The tag line “an ancient evil awakens” was plastered at the end of the demonstration. Also, during a brief trailer after the live gameplay footage, a very upset and deteriorating Cortana was shown. The game seemed to play just as similarly to previous Halo titles, so fans of the Bungie made titles should not be disappointed with what 343 Studios has produced. Did you see the gameplay footage? Are you excited for more Halo? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
