The game offers a distinguished single-player game, multiplayer split-screen challenges, and online battles, all on graphically intensive roads that deform and degrade each lap you pass.
Secondly, rumor has it that Halo 3 from Bungie Studios will appear at E3 2006 in video form during Microsoft's news conference on May 9.
This is what IGN claims. The web site was apparently informed by some trustworthy industry sources and alleges that the video is two minutes long, but that its contents weren't divulged.
Microsoft has avoided talking about the next Halo all year long, except when Bill Gates cautionned Sony that when its next-generation Playstation 3 is out, Halo 3 will launch day and date with it. Microsoft since retracted the statement, claiming Halo 3 will be ready when Bungie has finished developing it!
Recently, however, the company has started mention the Halo game again, acknowledging Halo 3's existence. Microsoft Game Studios' General Manager Shane Kim, in a conversation with New Zealand web site stuff.co.nz said:
"You mean the mythical Halo 3? I mean, it's silly to deny its existence when the chairman of Microsoft (Bill Gates) announced it, but I have nothing to announce now, but expect there to be a significant announcement at E3."
