Microsoft showed off the first footage of Halo 3 at the E3 show.
The trailer started out with what appeared to be the ashes of Earth, remnants of street signs swaying in the wind. Out of the haze walked the most realistic looking Master Chief ever imagined, assault rifle in hand. Flashes of a familiar face cut in and out through static to set the stage for what appeared next.
Once the familiar Halo theme started, the scene panned out across a large valley revealing Covenant ships hovering over the surface as a massive structure blasted out of the ground below.
The final words ... “This is the way the world ends” were followed by the call to action “Finish the Fight—2007”. Our mouths are still wide open in awe at how amazing the trailer looked.
