Halo 3 beta arrives May 16

New video doc reveals timeframe and weapons in action

The beta will be available beginning May 16 at 5 a.m. PDT, and run through June 6 at 11:59 p.m. PDT, andwill feature three maps - Snowbound, High Ground and Valhalla - each with a very different look and design. While lucky gamers who snatched up special copies of Crackdown (and the Halo beta pass it contained) will also get ahold of new weapons like the Spartan Laser and Spike Grenades, and speed around on the new Mongoose vehicle.

In the video below you'll see plenty of gameplay footage, showing off the new destined-for-double-entendre-overload man cannon feature, the super-tactical bubble shields in action and lots of developer types endlessly 'smack talking' one another. Enjoy!
