At E3 2009, the world was given a brief teaser showing a planet from space erupting in war. With “Halo: Reach” being displayed, the hardcore fanboys knew what it meant. This was the big battle we had heard about. This was the last stand of the Spartans. At the Spike Video Game Awards, we were treated to a peek at just what the game looked like with an in-engine cut scene. And as I talked about on this past week’s Flickcast, Halo: Reach is one of my personally most anticipated games of the year.
Now, the Halo fanbase has just gotten their fill of new information about Noble team, one of the squads on Reach, and specifically Noble 6, the Spartan players will be stepping in to the boots of in a story that takes place before the events of Master Chief and Halo: Combat Evolved. In the Halo: Reach developer vidoc “Once More Unto the Breach”, more footage and information than ever before has been revealed about what we can look forward to seeing during the fall of Reach.
Hearing, “We are rebuilding everything from the ground up,” is a staggering revelation when looking at the technological achievements of past Halo games. From totally redesigned enemies, environments and Spartans, Halo: Reach looks to be the new quintessential Halo story. With a tale meant to focus on characters, Noble team may even surpass Master Chief as the favorite characters of the franchise.
Take a peek below the fold at the massive amount of screen shots we were able to get from X10 as well as the amazing ViDoc. Keep your eyes peeled to the Flickcast as we further cover Halo: Reach.
