Ever since Halo 3: ODST was released, Microsoft has been teasing that anyone who purchased the overpriced expansion pack game would be able to participate in the upcoming Halo Reach multiplayer beta.  Well it appears that they weren’t pulling our leg after all.

Microsoft officially announced today, at their X10 media event, that the Halo Reach multiplayer beta will kick off on May 3, 2010.  No further details have been released, but they have reiterated that anyone who owns the ODST game disc will be able to take part in this “epic event”.

I’m not the biggest Halo fan in the world, but even I will admit that I’m excited about this beta.  Hopefully Bungie has come up with some new ideas to make the multiplayer experience feel fresh and new.  If it’s just the same old thing with a fresh coat of paint, I’m going to be a little disappointed.

What are everyone else’s thoughts on the matter?  Are you looking forward to the beta?  Does anyone except for me even own ODST still?

  1. I have it! I bought a second 360 (20GB) for $180 at Game Crazy. Came with 2 used games so I picked up Borderlands and ODST. Quite a steal. I will definitely be joining in on the beta. Although I will only be able to play for 6 days as I leave for vacation on the 9th for 2 weeks :)

  2. I barely played Halo 3 online, so I’m totally with Shawn; if Bungie hasn’t brought something new/fresh to the table, I’ll be elsewhere while Reach is going on.

  3. *Hugs ODST box*I never doubted you for a second!

  4. Anyone ever tried playing a lot of a realistic fps that requires recoil control, and then jumped into a Halo game online and noticed how easy it is to aim. Running top speed while sniping with 100% precision = retarded funny.

    Halo 1 for camiapgn.Halo 3 for Multiplayer.Halo 2 was good, but I don’t think the camiapgn was anything special. ( I didn’t like the switching between characters. ) Never really played the multiplayer for it online, so I have no clue what it’s like. I always played Halo 3 online until CoD: Mw2 came out then my friends switched to that. I only play multiplayer with friends. =|
