So we have all seen the new trailer for Halo Reach and the reactions so far have been pretty positive.
The visuals are looking really sweet and now we get to find out more about who these blokes in the video are as well as where they all fit in. I’ve never been a big Halo fan but I am hoping that Reach will push the series to a new level and do something really special.
Hit the jump for the press release.
Step into the boots of a Spartan III and prepare for the first look at â€œHalo: Reach,â€ the highly anticipated prequel to the â€œHaloâ€ trilogy from acclaimed developer Bungie coming fall 2010. The very first â€œHalo: Reachâ€ video had its worldwide debut last night during the Spike TV Video Game Awards by actress Tricia Helfer, offering gamers a taste of the story to come.
Taken from part of the game’s opening cinematic, the video provides the first look at the story of â€œHalo: Reach,â€ which introduces players to Noble Team, a squad of battle-hardened Spartan soldiers. â€œHalo: Reachâ€ charts the story of Noble Team in their heroic stand to defend the planet Reach, its people and secrets against a ruthless assault by an alien collective known as the Covenant.
â€œHalo: Reachâ€ is being published by Microsoft Game Studios and launches in the fall of 2010 exclusively on Xbox 360. The â€œHalo: Reachâ€ multiplayer beta is coming spring 2010, which players can access exclusively through â€œHalo 3: ODST.â€
The â€œHalo: Reachâ€ video is available now on Xbox LIVE and Bungie.net. Press only (do not publish the URL): for .wmv files and a screen shot from the â€œHalo: Reachâ€ video, go to: http://edelman.psni.com/public/Halo%20Reach/

OMG, they made a typo…
Step into the boots of a Spartan III…
At the timeline of Reach the Spartan III project was not jet fully operational… Master Chief and his buddies are Spartan II’s, not III’s
The SIII’s also did not wear (do not wear) the Majolnir armour… they use SPI armour…
What a nasy mistake to make!
