Rampant for over se7en years.




Rampant for over se7en years.



We didn't even know how big Halo was going to get.

How can anything be bigger than Halo?

Rampant for over se7en years.



This sunset behind the City really shows off the new engine's lighting effects.


Rampant for over se7en years.



This in-engine shot, apparently of a crashed or disabled human craft, would not look at all out of place in Halo; the design looks very much in the same vein as the Forward Unto Dawn.


Rampant for over se7en years.

Rampant for over se7en years.
