IGN Gets Shakey at Gamescom

Embedded into Rally Point.

IGN's on the show floor in Cologne and they're sending back some off-screen footage of Rally Point.  The video is split into three sections, so you'll have to queue up each one separately, but if you look really closely you just might be able to make out a golden-hued Hunter.  Is it really gold?  Just a illusion brought on by some new lighting effect?  You decide!
