Halo 3 trailer on Xbox Live

Tuesday 9 May 2006
Microsoft has released a Halo 3 announcement trailer via its Xbox Live online service and the potential show-winning movie is available for download right now.

Weighing in at a reasonably weighty 104MB, the trailer is accompanied with the following synopsis:

"With its defensive forces all but obliterated, Earth has fallen to the unstoppable might of the Covenant. These alien occupiers have discovered something beneath the ancient African sands - something incredible... something Forerunner."

For now - and until we download the trailer - that's all the info available. However, the mention of Forerunner is certainly interesting as this was the rumoured subtitle for the new Halo.
