So Bungie promises that we’ll be playing 3 maps in the Beta right? Valhalla, High Ground, and Snowbound. Well… That may not be the full story. Here’s recent footage of the beta (currently available for M$ employees):
“Last Resort” Is obviously a Zanzibar Remake, but the additions look sweet. Also, notice at the beginning you can view the persons gamercard, and how far and how hard they’ve played in Campain!
Note: Last Resort could be an exclusive map for the M$ internal beta, but I pray this comes with the real beta.
Hurry up May 16!
Here’s the Full Video 7 minutes Long (300 MB, MPG)
EDIT: A bit more speculation from KLind: This looks like a rebuilt Zanzibar at first, but what if it’s the opposite. What if Halo 2 Zanzibar (where everything is charred by when the Covenant came to Earth) comes after Last Resort? The name itself could mean that it was the Last Resort for the humans to protect themselves from the invasion?! If not, it has to just be “inspired by Zanzibar” similar to Blood Gulch/Coagulation/Valhalla. The wheel seems a bit to the same though for that…
EDIT 2: It appears there’s a 7 minute long Higher res version. Downloading know (just to make sure it’s the real thing then I’ll update this post. In the mean time, theres pictures at the following links (after the break):
