We've got 'em, leaked Halo 3 alpha screen grabs [update 1]

It's time to unleash your inner Halo fanboy, because we have some goodies for you. Hot off the screen grab black market, we've received some fresh Halo 3 alpha screenshots for your viewing pleasure. German website Evo-X posted seven un-seen screen grabs of the Halo 3 alpha build. And surprisingly enough, the quality of the shots is pretty good. From these new screens we noticed the HUD has a slight concave effect and can clearly see the new spike grenades situated on the top left. There are also a few shots that showcase a letter/number combination over teammates heads, which is either their login name, some sort of alpha crud, or has something to do with the rumored military rank. Ok, enough reading already! We're proud to present all seven leaked Halo 3 alpha screen grabs after the jump ... but remember guys these are shots of the alpha version.

Update 1: It looks like Evo-X has crippled under the server stress. But our readers are a resourceful bunch.

[Thanks, JesseBlue]

The concave is caused by master cheifs visor which bleeds in the edges like we've seen in Metroid Prime, and the HUD is sorta projected on his screen. Although not in the beta, apparently they are gonna do visual effects like frosting and glare on the visor, which is rad because that worked so awesomely well in metroid prime.

website is getting hammered right now, having issues connecting to even see the screens. Maybe someone could put them on another server?

Kevin is right. I already read that somewhere too. Letter Number Combo is good because
"Hey bumble bee in a red semicircle, you're getting sniped!"
isn't as easy as
"A4 sniper on you."

Or something like that.

Since when were people so stupid as to not save the images from a site like this? Did you expect the site to stay up or something? Christ...

MaX PL and the 360 r4pe Tr4iN said...

and as for the letter/# to identify teammates, i hope there is an option to switch between this and the old symbols.

reason why is because when i play with teammates, as in the same 3 guys ive played with for the past 3 years, its much easier just to look at the symbol and identify the player by the colors. i think having to focus in and read the numbers/letters would take a few milliseconds longer. and as cheesy as it sounds, those milliseconds are necessary.
