sat down with Bungie's Community Lead Brian Jarrard to discuss the upcoming Halo
3 beta. When asked about how much actual Halo 3
content will be included in the beta, Jarrard confirmed there will be multiple multiplayer maps, a few vehicles, the inclusion of the new weapons, and a stripped down version of online stats that compare to that of Halo 2
's offerings. Jarrard also hinted at new unannounced Xbox Live features saying that "most of our other new Live features are still highly classified, so I can't spill those details quite yet
". Which of course gets our collective Halo
fanboy gears churning, wondering what the other features could be. It's a pretty good (and short) interview, but we still don't learn any specifics about the beta including the most obvious ... when will it start? Anyone care to speculate on a rough time frame when we'll get our hands on some Halo 3
beta goodness or want to express your thoughts on what the new Xbox Live functions could be?
