Halo Reach – MultiPlayer Galore

Reach takes place in a futuristic science fiction setting during the year 2552, days before the events of the 2001 video game Halo: Combat Evolved. Humans, under the auspices of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC), have been waging a long war against a collective of alien races known as the Covenant. By the events of Reach, almost all of humanity’s interstellar colonies have fallen. Reach itself is an Earthlike colony that serves as the UNSC’s main military hub. In addition to the military presence, the colony is home to 500 million civilians.

The game follows the actions of Noble Team, a UNSC special operations unit composed of elite supersoldiers known as Spartans. Players assume the role of an unnamed new addition to the team, identified by the call sign Noble 6. Noble Team’s leader is Carter-259, a no-nonsense soldier. His second-in-command, Kat-320, has a bionic arm; together Carter and Kat are the only two remaining original members of Noble Team. The other members include heavy weapons specialist Jorge-052, Emile-239, and marksman Jun-226.

As a loyal Halo fan I think I just keep wait for each iteration of this game and how they are going to top it, for a while Halo 3 was going to be the last release as they were working on it but luckily they felt that there was still more to do. Then there was ODST which was fantastic but still not enough, it didn’t satisfy my hunger for this game, we finished it within hours and now Halo Reach has come to pass. From what I have read and seen I have been told that they have gone back to the drawing board and reworked the whole graphics and AI engine, meaning the bad guys are meaner and the explosions are bigger. The best part is always the story, this time about how the Spartans came to be and somewhat the story of Masterchief, but even with one player they knew to concentrate on the multiplayer game which is what we keep playing again and again. Just by looking at the trailer below it looks to be a lot more detailed, meaner, tougher, and a lot more fun. You can really customize the your Spartan this time around and it seems the weapons are more potent then they were before. I can’t wait to get my hands on this game, I will dedicate my time to finish it and annihilate those in multiplayer.
