Theater mode for Halo: CEA & The Magical Button of Time

With a classic/modern button at our disposal, the question is raised as to whether or not we’ll be able to save film clips of our gameplay.

If ‘Theater Mode’ doesn’t take a place for Halo: CEA’s campaign, this can and most likely will be seen as a large step backwards, but judging from the trailer, there most likely is one.

The question here would now become a matter as to how the function of this ‘magical button’ works.
Sure, it’s just a simple button, but an explanation of how it’s used within gameplay is still to be made.
Most likely a video detailing the magic would suffice.

Of course, you can always leave the surprise until it’s launched for customers to find out for themselves. :\

Another question would be as to what the File Share system would be like and if there would be a way to render of clips courtesy of 343i.

I guess it’s running the graphical engine over the old one. With the touch of a button it hides and shows either one of them I guess.
Also, I haven’t seen you in a while.

Theater in this game would be epic. Could a 343 employee clear this up, please?

I don’t think CEA has Theater. I’m pretty sure I saw a picture of the Main Menu and it only had:

-Halo Reach Multiplayer

Not too sure though.

Theatre would be awsome!


They have both the new and old graphics engines running at the same time, so they can easily be switched between. I assume the button used will be the Back button. The old engine doesn’t take up that much processing power so that’s why they are able to do that.
