Youtube - IGN Damnation fly through with David Ellis

David Ellis presents the remake of Damnation : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTp8A6jcJi4

That looks excellent. I was worried because the OXM shot made the map look pretty bad, but in that flythrough the covie aesthetics look amazing as ever, and the rocky/aqua-ish background gives off a vibe we haven’t really seen yet in Halo. Hopefully Beaver Creek will look better than that map’s terrible shots in OXM as well.

Bravo, 343/Certain Affinity.

Damn. Beat me to the chase. What was that at 1.54 falling in the waterfall, from the angle i thought it was the old style shade turret

All the Jetpacking just shows the flaws with Reach multiplayer…those maps will be sweet with the classic playlist

it has the worst wave effect i have ever seen

Looks amazing

I love what they’ve done with the place.

1 : 26, something/someone falling, yes.

I just found his via ElzarTheBam over at HBO

Sadly, confirmed by David Ellis (via Twitter) it wasn’t a Shade turret…

;D

it looks like a grunt could it be?

To me, the falling object looked a lot like a Grunt, which would suggest something to do with Firefight.

When in the video does the falling object occur?

1:27-1:28-ish. When they look over to the waterfall.

You might want to rewatch the waterfall in the background, there are things falling down it

did you see the falling grunt at 01:53

I would indeed bet on a grunt falling as an easter egg.
It’s a covie building, after all.
