Synopsis

Setting

.Reach takes place in a futuristic science fiction setting during the year 2552, days before the events of the 2001 video game Halo: Combat Evolved.^ I just hope that Halo: Reach isn't just a level pack for Halo, I want Bungie to do some game design, not just refine the old Halo stuff.

[3] Humans, under the auspices of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC), have been waging a long war against a collective of alien races known as the Covenant. By the events of Reach, almost all of humanity's interstellar colonies have fallen. Reach is the UNSC's most fortified world, and serves as a military and intelligence hub.

Characters

The game follows the actions of Noble Team, a UNSC special operations unit composed of elite supersoldiers known as Spartans. Players assume the role of an unnamed Lieutenant, identified by the call sign Noble 6.[4] The other members of Noble Team are Carter, Kat, Heavy Gunner Specialist Jorge, Emile, and Jun.[3]

These screenshots allegedly showed a new needle-firing carbine, a new rifle, and a new HUD showing the names and current health of squad mates. Microsoft, owner of the Halo intellectual property, declined to comment.[10][11] However, the new Game Informer issue has confirmed that the leaked pictures were genuine.

Multiplayer beta

.It was announced on December 12, 2009, when the game officially debuted, that the multiplayer beta would take place in spring of 2010[12] Information from a charity donation by Bungie puts the beta's launch date no earlier than April 28.[13 ] The game Halo 3: ODST will be used as a key to access the beta.^ As it stands, I'd be interested in a new Halo game after ODST provided it looks interesting enough, but if they're going to try and entice me to buy new hardware for it, that's a deal-breaker.
