Halo 3 multiplayer beta coming
The Beta itself consists of three maps ? Valhalla, High Ground and Snowbound. All three maps are graphically improved since the first screenshots. There are also a number of new features in the beta including a new grenade type, a completely different class of weapon and enhanced online functionality.
Now, I will say this again and again ? the game you?re going to play one month from now, is Beta software ? and while it will look somewhat close to the final game, it IS Beta ? and will contain quirks, a couple of roughedges and all that jazz. But we?re pretty confident you?ll find it a dynamic and exciting taste of what?s to come in Fall.
I probably should have pointed this out earlier, but don’t get too excited. You will only get to sample the new multiplayer beta if you have a Xbox Live gold account, and purchased a specially marked copy of Crackdown. Or alternatively won a spot in the beta through the “Rule Of Three” promotion.
