The weekly update isn't up, but that doesn't mean I haven't anything to share with you guys. Forge '2.0' was revealed in all its glory in a ViDoc at Bungie.net, which might have also been displayed at Comic-Con, but details are still pretty scarce as to the full extent of what Bungie did there.

Anyway, the new Forge looks pretty sweet. Basically, they have a 'Forge World' (I immediately thought of WH40k when I first saw the name). This is the largest multiplayer map they've made, and the possibilities are endless. I'll pin the ViDoc to the end of the article, as it more or less explains everything in just a few minutes.

I'm personally liking the ability to put the Hill in King of The Hill on a vehicle, but that's likely a bit unfair if I'm in the gun . Also, it's cool how easy it will be now to remake old favorites from the previous games in Forge, as they show in the vid. But the BEST thing I learned today? One of the brand new vehicles is...a civilian forklift. Yep. A forklift.

Many civilian vehicles are now drivable in Reach, so...why not?

Nice to see that they're fixing the kinks in forge. And its much bigger, which is also cool. I'm really looking forward to this game.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

I also found a bunch of images concerning some of the multiplayer maps. Of note? Ivory Tower seems to have made a return in the form of 'Reflection'. A map I wasn't quite fond of from Halo 2, but nevertheless was quite popular. The devs say it's pretty much exactly the same, aside from the eye candy of course.



We also have a heavily expanded version of Midship called Zealot.



And also an interesting aerial map known as Spire.

Must say I'm liking the constant updates you're bringing us in this thread.

This is actually starting to get me really looking forward to this game, even though I'm not a big fan of Halo in general. I like it, but it's nowhere near on my top list, though this could turn things around for me.

Regards,
Jake.

Now I need to scavenge up $190 in the next few weeks.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

You pre-ordered the legendary edition too? Yeah, same here. Except I put 40 bucks down on it already. Just need to build up more money. I get 30 bucks in four weeks to equal $70, then my birthday is a week after Reach comes out, and I get money for my birthday when the rest of the family celebrates it at my grandmothers house. That'll probably get me enough to get the game the week after my birthday. Funny thing, that same week I should get another $30. So hoorah for me, I can get it not long after its released.

Nope. $100 for the game + $90 for a Xbox live subscription (I think that's how much they are).

I apologize for the image links getting nicked. I didn't catch that until a few seconds ago. I'll see what I can do.

In the mean time, I'll just drop this here...

Holmstrom: +rep for all the updates, thanks for the time and effort.

I was watching some of the Comic-Con coverage that they but on XBOX live and I heard that they added more armour abilities. Is this true and if it is what are they?

About $100 for the thing to connect your xbox to the internet so you can have live. As for a live subscription, its $50 for a year. There are also cards for 1 week(I think), a month, 6 months(not sure on this one), and as already said, one for a year.
