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?
