Speaking to 1UP, Ensemble lead designer Dave Pottinger has made no bones about the fact that the Halo RTS we’re going to see at E3 next week has had a major visual boost compared to the movie shown off last year.

“I think it would look a hell of a lot better,” he said when asked what the major differences between last year’s trailer and a video made today would be.

“The art’s just gone tremendously through the roof in terms of quality. The things we can do technically in the engine from a programming standpoint, and physics and whatnot, are just light years better than they were last year. The gameplay is definitely more honed – I think that would definitely come through in a gameplay video.”
