Get enough of us playing, think it would be a fun multiplayer for sure!

Really happy to see they are doing customization for characters, not to mention seasons will give us a reason to play.

 

For $10 I think this would be an awesome game to get most members into for sure, for the price and what it offers with multiplayer, its going to be hard to beat this.

Only a few more days to go 😁

 

The devs put out a fairly large blog about some of the concerns the beta testers had and seems like they have addressed all of these concerns already. Along with launch update and details.

And great news.... FPS will and is uncapped!!! 👍

 

See the rest of the latest dev update below...

I'm super down, just want to see some reviews and make sure it's a good pc port rather than buying and finding out the m&kb controls are crap.

Never played a Halo before (always got Nintendo and PS), what can you compare this game to, is it just a future style TDM or something?

For me... it reminds me of Unreal Tournament at a lan party but with vehicles.

 

Multiplayer modes would include some of these and maybe more...

Arena

The Arena is a brand new Matchmaking experience incorporated into Halo: Reach and aimed directly at competitive players who value skill, rank, and bragging rights above all else. Halo: Reach will still feature a wealth of other Playlist offerings, ranging from social to competitive (and everything in between), but the Arena is all about extreme competition.

Its rules are simple:

1. Play enough games each day and you will receive a Daily Rating.
2. Earn enough Ratings in a Season and you will be placed in a Division amongst your peers.

At the end of each season, everyone who has qualified for a Season Rating will receive a breakdown of their Division placement and their individual performance in each Arena Playlist.

 

Juggernaut

The "Juggernaut" has a Gravity Hammer, increased shields and a boosted jump. If you kill the Juggernaut, you become the Juggernaut. You score points by killing other players as the Juggernaut. The Juggernaut's super-shield is susceptible to shield-draining weapons (like the Plasma Pistol). The player with the most points at the end of the match wins.

Headhunter

When players are killed, they drop a skull. You must collect these skulls and bring them to designated skull receptacles (a white ring) on the map. These receptacles move around during the match. Players with multiple skulls will drop all their skulls when killed. Collect 25 skulls to win the match. If one person returns ten or more skulls at once she wins the match (Skullamanjaro"). The HUD display shows how many skulls each person is carrying at all times.

 

Generator Defense

A team of Spartans must defend three generators from a team of Elites. A Blast Shield can be activated to temporarily protect a generator. All three generators must be destroyed for the Elites to win.

 

1 Flag CTF

One team defends a flag while the other team attempts to steal it and return it to their territory. The teams switch roles after a period of time. You cannot use Abilities or weapons while carrying a flag, but a flag can be used as melee weapon. Tossing a flag in front of you and collecting it quickly will allow you to move faster.

 

Stockpile

Four neutral flags in a level must be collected and returned to each team's territory. While your flags are planted in your territory ring, they can be stolen. Flags are collected every minute and only then count towards your score. The first team to ten flags wins -- or the team with the most after the time expires. You cannot use Abilities or weapons while carrying a flag, but a flag can be used as a melee weapon. Tossing a flag in front of you and collecting it quickly will allow you to move faster.

 

Oddball

Players attempt to grab a skull and hold onto it. The match is scored in seconds. The first person to hold the skull for two minutes wins. You cannot use Abilities or weapons while carrying a skull, but a skull can be used as a one-hit kill melee weapon.

 

Crazy King

This King of the Hill variant features a hill (actually a ring) that shifts locations every 30 seconds. The first person to spend 100 seconds in an uncontested ring wins. The ring must be uncontested to score.

 

3 Plots

Like King of the Hill, you score by capturing a territory. There are multiple territories to capture and you can leave a territory once you capture it and still earn points. You can capture an enemy territory by occupying it.

 

Slayer

"Deathmatch." Whoever has the highest kill count wins.

 

Team SWAT

This mode is similar to Slayer but players do not have shields or radar. Specific weapons.

 

Covy Slayer

This Slayer variant features only Elites.

 

Slayer Pro

This mode is the same as Slayer but you have no motion-tracking radar.

 

Alongside other multiplayer options is "firefight", where players take on increasingly difficult waves of foes in a game of survival.

 

Also included with Reach is "Forge", a level editor. Players can edit the default multiplayer maps and a large empty map known as "Forge World", adding or modifying spawn points, weapons and items. Objects may be phased into other objects, and can also be snapped to specific orientations.[14] Other included features are the "theater", where players can watch saved films of their games and take screenshots and video clips for posterity, and the file share, where players can upload their screenshots, films, custom maps, and game types for public viewing.

 

 

As to, what is Halo, it has such a large and well used story, history and universe that its kind of hard to sum it up. 15 halo games in all but watch the story below and you should get most of it 😁
