The lights are on
For the last month, we've given you the details on the team at Bungie, their thoughts on ODST, the new team at 343 Industries, and details on Halo's fiction and composer. By now you've got the skinny on the Halo universe and franchise, so it's time for creative director Marcus Lehto to go into detail about Reach's gameplay, characters, and weaponry. Take a look at the video below to hear what he has to say over never-before-seen artwork from the game.
For the rest of our month-long Halo: Reach coverage, head over to our hub page.

It would be a nice surprise if this mysterious lone-wolf Sparten was, in fact, Master Chief. I doubt it though. I really fealt out of the loop when not playing as Master Chief in ODST. They even go so far as to withhold "classified" information from Buck as to why the Elites and the Brutes were fighting in ODST.
Wow does this game look epic. I can't wait for the game to hit shelves.
Until this interview i was stoked cause everything i'd heard was keeping with the time line of the Halo universe, but now the Spartan III's are the main in a battle that took place before their creation? New weapons? i can kinda understand, but to essentially say that the spartan II's were wiped before Reach? That's preposterous. And the "original" 2 Spartan III's that they named weren't even born yet from what i remember in the books. Plus the doctor who created the Spartan II's would never let the Spartan III's step foot on Reach under any condition. From the interview it feels a lot more like a halo 4 with the humans trying to retake Reach than a prequel.
Going to be amazing
What was the name of their new engine for halo? They said it before, but don't remember:P kittenkilla, I hate people like you.
And seriously COULD WE GET A DATE OF THE BETA!? Thanks
I cant w8
did you noticed Noble six's Helljumper emlem? AWESOME :D
Man, right when I think I'm done with Halo, this video sucks me right back in.
I apologize. my previous post probably seemed like a rant. It's just to those of us who actually read Ghosts of Onyx having the Spartan III's on Reach kinda comes as a slap in the face. i'm still going to buy this game, but now its looking more like it'll be for the redesigns instead of the story. That Jackle looked sick with all that detail in the hair. If that's the kind of detail they're putting in-game then no PS3 game will ever top it. Can't wait to see a good shot of the Elites.
I love all HALO games so I can't wait for HALO: REACH to come so for now i will play HALO 3
can't wait it looks epic
Wait, let me get this straight, Halo reach takes place between 'Fall of Reach'(DUH) and 'Ghost of Onyx'? Didn't really knew that it was about Onyx aswell. Gotta read the books again.
this ill light up xbox live like a xmas tree...i cant wait to try it oout...i really need a good halo game, since 3 didnt satisfy me after i beat it a couple of time..
Am I the only one who thinks that Noble 6 is The Master Chief. Mr. John 117 aka The Demon aka The Green *** Bad Ass aka The Guacamole Gang Banger?
It sounds like there are going to be more than a few new weapons, and even the old ones will be fresh. I love that Designated Marksman Rifle, I'm a sucker for semi-auto assault rifles. The armor abilities sound kind of risky, though- sounds a lot like the Arbiter's cloak in Halo 2, and they're going to have to find a way to not always use it, lest it unbalances the game, especially in multiplayer.
where is the new update they said 2 updates!?
i wait for 4 hours
I will be buying this game. That said, I really hope Bungie gives the campaign more variety to the battles like in Call of Duty where all of the skirmishes aren't the same. MW2 did an excellent job by varying the gameplay with the Cliffhanger level and the part where you are running through the Favela without a gun and have to escape, and I
hope Bungie adds some of these elements for Halo: Reach.
People seem to be confused about the timeline here. SPARTAN IIIs existed long before the Covenant invaded Reach.There have actually been 2-3 generations of SPARTAN IIIs already. For those of you who claim to have read Ghosts of Onyx, I find it curious that you don't recognize the dates given at the beginning of each chapter.It was 2531 when Kurt-051 was tasked with training the first generation of SPARTAN IIIs, Reach isn't attacked until 2552. Sorry to be ranty, just wanted to clear stuff up.
the halo campaign i think it should stop kinda
