Bungie shows “Keep it Clean” teaser trailer to new project

Thursday, 25th September 2008 15:10 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Update: The video’s being pulled apart all over the web. See here.

It’s here. It shows city streets burnt out after a meteor impact and a “Halo 3″ logo, followed by the words “Prepare to drop.”

The video has the Microsoft Game Studios logo at the end of it.

And that’s that. Watch it. We’re just sorting out a local version.

Update: You can watch it after the break now as well.

    Oh. And here’s everyone thinking it’s going to be a new game. It’s some sort of Halo 3 extension then? How disappointing.

    It looks like the boot sequence from Robocop, but nowhere near as good.

    Well that was a complete non-event :(

    Oh well, back to counting the minutes until Wipeout!

    Blerk what are you on about? If it’d been a new Halo game how would it have been any LESS disappointing?

    Got a big “meh” around the office here. I think everyone was expecting to be less confused and a bit more intrigued. “Didn’t we already have Halo 3?”

    So, it’s Halo 3: DLC.

    Why would they bother to pull that from the E3 conf when it would have been a nice little surprise reveal at the end? On it’s own, it’s just a bit of a meh announcement.

    “Prepare to drop”

    Suggests we’ll be playing as ODSTs*, the Helljumpers. The badassiest of the badass non-augmented soldier dudes.

    Those aren’t meteors, those are drop-pods.

    In other words, squad-game.

    UNLESS…. it’s sort of a ‘total conversion’ mod, which turns your Halo 3 into something else entirely. Although why that wouldn’t have been done as a totally separate game, I dunno. So it probably isn’t. Like.

    Erm. Anyone spot the “Maddie where are you?” text?! :-O

    I’m surprised Americans even know who she is.

    I said AEONS ago the next Halo would be a squad thing. So colour me slightly more interested than if it’d just been some lame arsed lone wolf type of dealio.

    I believe it’s been confirmed on Live that it’s an expansion to Halo 3. What that actually entails is another thing. I’m not sure if they’re able to retroactively add squad-based control though. Could be rather tricky.

    The Maddie line was a rather daft idea.

    Looks like people are frame-by-frame analysing this thing already. :-D

    “I’m surprised Americans even know who she is.”
    “The Maddie line was a rather daft idea.”

    Really think it’s reffering to the same Maddie?

    Literally Halo 3.5….

    When Halo 3 was already 2.5 xD

    So now we have Halo 3 definitely.

    (Sony!! Heads up on a KZ2 expansion… Oh Wait it’s not out yet)

    Very strange. I really like the graphical style of the trailer though.

    #22 6 years ago
  23. Quiiick

    If that’s in-game graphics what they show in this teaser, colour me interested.

    The one thing that confuses me though, is it being Halo 3 … :(

    @ Psychotext
    … yes, me too, I like the colours and the lighting! :)

    #24 6 years ago
  25. Psychotext

    Yeah, I doubt it will be… being a Halo 3 expansion and all. =/

    It’s 2D, you can see from the effects when they try to make ti collapse.

    So I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it’s not ingame.

    But I will say you guys shouldn’t be down on a Halo 3 expansion. That’s like gold. Don’t sweat it, it will be substantial and fun.

    “Really think it’s reffering to the same Maddie?”

    As narrow focused as US news media can be it ran with the story just like everywhere is did.

  28. Psychotext

    I doubt it’s the same person. It would have never got past MS’s anal PR people.

    OK silly question coming up.

    Will this be single player or multiplayer or both.

    Thanks in advance.

    well I don’t mean to be rude but so what if you knew the picture is for lol’s. They pretty much ruined bungies little teaser none new’s.

    #32 6 years ago
  33. Psychotext

    I’m not entirely sure how they ruined it. The trailer says Halo 3… not “New Bungie game”.

  35. No_PUDding

    Yes, to be honest with th hintings I was expecting a new game.

  36. morriss

    I wasn’t.

    I don’t like new. New scares me.
