The Halo: Reach multiplayer beta madness doesn’t drop into Xbox LIVE until May 3rd, 2010, but you’re gonna need to be up to speed before you get your boots in the mud. Check out the world premiere footage of the Reach’s multiplayer Alpha in action and get a glimpse at what’s on tap for the upcoming public Beta. You can take it for a test spin yourself in May using your copy of Halo 3: ODST to gain access.
In addition to the hot new footage, this trailer features a C Paul track originally orchestrated for the Halo 3: ODST Original Soundtrack. For the high energy remix, we brought in longtime friend of the studio, Ivan Ives
, to help us make the musical magic happen. Here’s what he had to say about the process:
"I'm really honored that Marty let me work on the remix of the Uphill, Both Ways
track with C Paul. It was a great piece to begin with so we just wanted to put a different spin on it, which turned out really cool. Added in a really heavy dark bass and some lighter piano to contrast it and give it a really epic feeling to match the Multiplayer awesomesauce."
