Okay, now that some of the news has died down from earlier today’s Gamescom Halo announcements, let’s take a better look at the remastered Sanctuary. This of course coming with the Halo: The Master Chief Collection.Man, just look at the majesty that is this map. I love the lighting, the landscape, fog, foliage. This is an excellent redesign!Another wonderful shot showing us the vista of which Sanctuary lies in.Would you just look at the shadows here. Look at the waterfall in the background!Yet another shot showing us the grand view. Note the callout above the radar in the HUD.It just keeps getting better, doesn’t it?The textures are well done. So far, I’m not seeing any tiling going on.The erosion of the pieces looks great. And hey hey, look there, the player is using an SMG!
Next up are 6 concept pics.
Anyone else seeing what appears to be the Didact’s helmet on the right broken wall?
Concept? Hell, this is a piece of ART!
Oh my….look at that water just flooding over the edge. Beautiful.
Water water everywhere!
Now there is something eerily mysterious and yet calming about the above piece. I can’t quite put my finger on it.So was Sanctuary an old aqueduct? LOL.
And finally screens of multiplayer action on the map.
Beyond the map, look at the fact that the armor seems to be much more rich in color! I miss that. Halo 4’s armor was muted for most of the armor colors.
Fear the pink mist!
Okay, some things to note in this screen. Armor looks great. Water looks fantastic. AND the blue spartan in the background is NOT bright! He looks as he should in shadow!Okay, I have GOT to see some live gameplay on this map. I’m betting that the water will give away people’s positions. We’ll find out!
