halo 3

MereCatfish provided us with this early capture from Bungie's 7-minute-long Brute documentary. This one shows (along with an Elite and various lines of fire and information about local terrain) alterations made to the heads-up display, with the shield strength bar separated from the motion detector and placed dead center, straight up. What appear to be four grenade counters appear on the left: Frag, Plasma, Spike... and Shield? Current weapon and ammo information is in the upper right, and the lower right (where normally a single-wield weapon muzzle would protrude) is clear.

From the Bungie Update:

"over a period of several months and literally hundreds of files, we have the final Halo 3 logo. We hope you like it and if everything goes according to plan, you’ll see a LOT more of this in the months ahead!

Looks like the color and texture of metal on the underside of the Halo rings; although at a distance, the colors also look like an Earth-like world seen from a distance, the mix of blue, green, and white.

This image from the documentary describing the process of creating the Halo 3 Announcement Trailer sparked much speculation: are these familiar species in new costumes, or entirely new species? The former seems more likely but some fans cling to the latter.
