What is Firefight?

I recently watched the trailer for the new game, and I was wondering if anyone might know what firefight might be? It sounded pretty interesting. I'm just guessing, could it be a matchmaking gametype of some sort? [Edited on 06.01.2009 12:35 PM PDT]

  • I Well, according to the information on that page, it's just a long battle against the Covenant. I hope they will add Flood too.

  • [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ltPm4ujpJQ[/url] I uploaded a trailer on my YouTube account with my Dazzle that contained some Firefight gameplay. Set stuff on fire ftw! Note: The quality is bad because it just got uploaded moments ago.

  • According to Merriam-Webster's online dictionary, firefight means: [b]1 a[/b]: a usually brief intense exchange of fire between opposing military units [b]b[/b]: a hostile confrontation that involves gunfire [b]2[/b]: skirmish 2b [quote][/quote] This could mean that there is rounds, similar to Forge I presume or any objective game, and you will be able to fight off enemies. Much like the craze that it follows in [b]Left 4 Dead[/b]'s [i]Survival Mode[/i], [b]Gears of War 2[/b]'s [i]Horde Mode[/i], and [b]Call of Duty: World at War[/b]'s [i]-blam!- Zombies[/i]. Although the Xbox 360's apparent love for these arena-based bot massacres, I'm unsure if Halo 3 can carry that same finesse that other games happened to present. I'm sure Bungie can do it, I'm sure I'll enjoy it, but the redundancy of the gametype will get old, quick. It doesn't matter though because it's still another strong selling point in most games now-a-days. The speculated [i]Firefight Mode[/i] could be nothing more than part of a speech though. He might been playing that [b]Halo 3: ODST[/b] Beta and referenced the gameplay as a "firefight," seeing as how you are with a whole squad of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers fighting Brutes in a war... If there is a [i]Firefight Mode[/i], I'm stoked because I know Bungie will deliver. :-D [b]Edit[/b]: I stand corrected, my second paragraph is flawed. [Edited on 06.01.2009 1:13 PM PDT]

  • It's a horde/ survival mode that they're implementing after failing to get it in Halo 3 in time.

  • If it is a survival mode, will it be as an ODST or a Spartan? because I guess it might be possible for it to be a spartan if both games use the same engine.

  • Plus one of the features is "Pre-order to bring Johnson into the fight" I hope this means we'll be able to select famous characters we get to play as through the game mode.

  • [quote] Whoa! They're telling us already? That isn't very Bungie-esk! I'm certainly looking forward to this although I am beginning to feel Bungie should move away from Halo. [/quote] So much information at once! So basically it is a "survival" mode of some sort, and you can play with up to four friends?

  • I hope it's a Flood survival game or wave after wave of Covenant assaults with a whole load of customization and a L4D style A.I. Director!

  • im assuming its gonna be some sweet horde/survival mode, but not like horde at all, just a vague similar idea. horde has waves, but i dont expect bungie to follow suite. Think bigger, think about how sweet bungie can make this, while encorporating it with forge, and forged maps. you could forge your own survival gametype map, place all the weapons, vehicles and so on. build a crazy base structure to defend yourselves in. how about fighting off a scarab or two in firefight. enemies comming in on banshees and so on. should be sweet.

  • [quote] I hope it is a survival mode... that would be epic. Zombies made COD5 bearable, imagine what it would do for Halo...! [/quote] Infection is also a very popular gametype of Halo 3. If Firefight is an updated version, then that would greatly increase the game popularity.

  • [quote] They'll be showing it later at the booth, but I have to assume it's fighting off waves of enemies. [/quote] That actually sounds correct, but I assume nobody will know until it is confirmed by Bungie.

  • Horde (GOW 2) type game I'm guessing. Or maybe a Terrorist Hunt (RSV2) type game.
