It might not be official, but the first footage of the Halo: Reach multiplayer beta has leaked onto the net and it’s smoking hot!  It shows off a ton of stuff like new moves, new weapons, new gameplay modes, and jetpacks!  I mean who doesn’t like jetpacks, am I right?

Of course if you aren’t really a fan of Halo you’ll probably watch this video and think to yourself, “yep that looks like Halo”.  I wouldn’t blame you, because to the untrained eye it really does just look like more of the same.  Trust me though, there is a ton of stuff in this trailer to get excited about.  Hit the jump to watch the video and see for yourself.

I’m starting to think that in the next couple months we’re going to see a lot more copies of Halo: ODST fly off the shelves as people scramble to get into the beta.  We are talking about what will probably end up being the most played beta of all time, and the only way to get in is to own a copy of ODST.  The sales will jump up as May approaches.  Trust me.

I’m interested to hear what everyone else thinks of this leaked footage.  Does it get you excited for Halo:Reach, or is it just more of the same?

  1. You nailed my impressions of the game based on this trailer, “Yep, that looks like Halo.” Never been a fan of the series. Nonetheless, some of the melee action looked pretty cool.

    Finally, the make the jump to real high definition. Couldn’t get into Halo 3 cuz the game looked like some garbage and played like same ol same ol. Hopefully the tweaks make it have a more lasting effect.

  3. It’s safe to say this isn’t a leaked video. It’s an appropriately timed advertisement. Microsoft done good

  4. The only thing I like about Halo is the series: Red vs Blue

  5. I thought I couldnt be any more excited about reach but this video proved that wrong! you can roll! and theres jetpacks…but you can roll!

    As a big halo fan I actually love that it seems similar to Halo 3 in some ways, I really wouldnt want them to change it too much because I just love how solid it feels.

    From the looks of the video it looks much better graphically with a truck load of new features to sink your teeth into.
