Halo Community Update – 02/05/16 (‘A Whole New Ball Game’)

February 8th, 2016 by halo@bungie.org
Bravo posted a late community update this past Friday sort of recapping much of the information we've been hearing for a bit on recent updates (matchmaking, Warzone, blue spartans, etc), but he also shows off a bit about the new 'Ball gametype' and a few Spartan companies that have already achieved the Achilles armor (come on HBO fans, sign up for our spartan company and let's get going!). As usual, it's free for your perusal at HaloWaypoint!(MacGyver10 15:35:26 UTC)

Canon Fodder – Judges and Jurys

February 8th, 2016 by halo@bungie.org
Since 343 posts everything late on Friday evenings (east coast represent!), I usually don't get to share on the day they come out unfortunately. With another school/work week in full swing though, maybe take some time to read through the latest Canon Fodder again (or for the first time)? There is plenty on Cortana's new look, including a few renders and a Q&A with '343 Big Boys' Tim Longo and Brian Reed. (Thanks puppymonkeybaby!)(MacGyver10 15:30:46 UTC)

Let’s Play Myth Co-op #04 Homecoming

February 6th, 2016 by narcogen
Myth - 04 Homecoming

We're playing the next of Bungie's famous games, the Real Time Tactics fantasy wargame, Myth. Set in a mysterious land of cyclical war and destruction, Myth lets you command an ragtag army in a desperate battle against the forces of the Fallen Lords.

The Head wants us to search a destroyed cathedral in the ruined city of Covenant for a book called the Total Codex.

Due to the tireless work of many community members over the years, the Myth engine has been modernized to work on current operating systems, although you'll still need a copy of the game's data files to play. Check Ebay.

For the engine itself as well as texture enhancements, go to Project Magma:

http://projectmagma.net/

There's also multiplayer metaserver available for competitive carnage:

http://gateofstorms.net/

A bunch of other Myth-related downloads are available at The Tain:

http://tain.totalcodex.net/

Intro and outro Music "Into the Breach" by Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori from Myth The Fallen Lords.

Myth developed by Bungie Software Corporation, currently trademark owned by Take Two.

CaptainDireWolf Recreates the Star Wars Pod Race In Halo 5’s Forge

February 5th, 2016 by halo@bungie.org
munky-058 shared a pretty cool custom/aesthetic map called 'Boonta Eve'. It does kind of work, but it is on honor rules until we get an official race gametype. If you're interested though, go see what the pod race from Star Wars Ep I would look like in Halo 5 thanks to CaptainDireWolf!(MacGyver10 23:22:13 UTC)

DrBizz Still Breaking Into Places He Shouldn’t Be on Halo 2’s Cairo Station

February 3rd, 2016 by halo@bungie.org
DrBizz has long been a legend in the Halo tricking community with many 'firsts' to his name. You can add another to that repertoire with his recent admission to the area under the elevator death zone on Cairo Station in Halo 2.

In his own words: "Hey friends! DrBizz here again. It's been a while! I just released a new video showing my most recent accomplishment, which is another previously unexplored area on Cairo Station. This was done on The Master Chief Collection and thanks to all the new crazy skulls it was possible. It was a really outrageous project, where I had countless fails and setups that never worked. It involves actually going inside the famous "cutscene room" and blasting from there through a HUGE distance of void space through the level and ending up underneath the death barrier that blocks access to the large room under the elevator. This trick is very special to me, because I thought it was impossible for so long. But like so many other challenges, it just took an outrageous idea and a ton of work, and 11 years after the game came out we got in."(MacGyver10 18:09:22 UTC)
