Major Nelson is reporting that a new video documentary on Halo 3 is now available in the Xbox Live Marketplace. This 7 minute video focuses on the Covenant Brutes and the improvements made to them for the game. Again, I'm feeling under the weather at the moment, so I'll let the dashboard description of the video fill in the details for you;
"In the second Bungie “Vidoc” we take a long hard look at the ferocious new antagonist for Master Chief, the Brute. Now that a tentative alliance has formed between Humans and Elites, the fighting focus of Halo 3 switches to the monstrous Brutes. These tenacious foes have improved graphically with the advent of the Halo 3 engine and the power of the Xbox 360, but more importantly, their tactics, weapons, vehicles and AI have all followed suit, making the Brutes the worthiest opponents the Chief has ever faced. See how the designers, artists and programmers set about the herculean task of replacing a fan favorite – the mighty Elite – with an unforgettably ferocious adversary. See how Brutes behave in packs and as individuals with brilliant new animation and AI. Take a first look at the new Brute graphics, weapon and armor designs and finally, get the first ever public glimpse at Halo’s legendary Campaign." - XBLM Dashboard Text as per Major Nelson
For those of you who don't have an Xbox 360 or access to the Xbox Live Marketplace, the full video has already appeared on YouTube, so you can check it out below! It may not be as pretty as the Xbox Live version, but it'll do in a pinch. Enjoy.
Still no love for video files here in the archives (someday....), so click here to head over to YouTube to check out the video.
