Deconstructing the new Halo 3 commercial…

Halo 3: Master Chief's New Shield Grenade

While studying for my finals, I couldn’t help but watch the new Halo 3 commercial over and over again. Among a ton of clues in the 60 second commercial released just this evening, you’ll see Master Chief’s new shield grenade which blocks off a direct mortar round as seen above.

The opening scene also shows our mysterious hero’s childhood and judging from their dull uniformed dressing, it seems to imply that they were part of some military lab experiment. If memory serves me right, the timeline has it that kids were chosen for their potential towards cybernetic enhancements. Several Spartans (like Master Chief) were produced, though we never got to see them throughout the Halo game series (only mentioned in the Halo novels).

In the background, you’ll see the new Human Quad-Bike inverted by a blast, as well as the new and improved Assault Rifle. As Master Chief jumps over the cliff, you’ll also see armored Covernant Brutes and their new Brute Ghost vehicles.

To watch the 720p high-res video as well as some high-quality screenshots, check out the TeamXbox site. Back to work for me…

P.S.: I still so want a portable force field, but first, where are the flying cars?
