Welcome to Reach
Posted by urk at 9/14/2010 9:48 AM PDT
I’m a little surprised you dropped by, to be honest. You know you can pick up your copy of Halo: Reach today, right? It’s the biggest, most ambitious game we’ve ever made, built on a decade’s worth of sweat equity and experience creating the kick ass games, stories, and characters you’ve come to cherish. It’s our swan song in the series, our final entry in the Halo saga. And yeah, it is awesome.

But don’t take our word for it. Other people are saying great things about Halo: Reach, too. Smart people. Check it out:

The only thing missing from this impressive entry is a number "4" in the title, because for all intents and purposes, Reach feels like the next big thing in the Halo franchise.
GamePro (5 out of 5 stars)

Halo: Reach is bar none the most developed, robust, and title in the franchise.
Planet Xbox 360 (10 out of 10)

Halo: Reach is everything a Halo fan has ever dreamed for.
Destructoid (10 “Flawless Victory”)

Nine years in and on its fifth and final pass Bungie has created the definitive Halo experience…
IGN UK (10 out of 10 “Masterful”)

…a perfect way for Bungie to part with the series it turned into a phenomenon.
Game Informer (10 out of 10)

Halo: Reach is unquestionably the best of the Halo games, and that's not a small thing to say. But Bungie doesn't just match the best of every Halo game that came before it, they've improved it, streamlined it, perfected it.

Stop, guys. We’re blushing. (And we're totally tooting our own horn, too.)

If you've yet to pick up your copy, there's a handy link on the right hand side of this page that'll take you to our storefront on Amazon.com. Of course, if you're particular about your retailer of choice, and you want your copy RIGHT NOW, Halo: Reach is available in all stores, everywhere.

In celebration of the positively glowing reviews and the launch of Halo: Reach, there’s a free Premium Theme ready for you to download from your Xbox 360. Just fire up your console, connect to Marketplace, and look for the Invasion Week Theme. After you snag it, stick around - there are tons of other multimedia offerings and events you can tap into to help us ring in Halo: Reach.

<3, Bungie

There’s plenty of multimedia and information about Halo: Reach packed away in our official Project Page, as well. If you want to check out some Halo: Reach multimedia or just learn a little bit about the game itself, please feel free to browse around. Mi casa es su casa.

Halo: Reach Project Page

While you’re sampling our wares, you should also take a peek at Bungie Pro. If you have an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription, you can already upload and share your custom Halo: Reach maps, game types, screenshots, and films online, but Bungie Pro will bump your total share from 6 to 24 slots, give you full access to our online film rendering service, and bestow a DMR nameplate upon your gamertag so you can be the envy of everyone in the in-game lobby.

Bungie Pro

And of course, you can’t forget about our robust online stats offering. Your career gameplay post-carnage reports, customizable Service Record, and all your File Share content are all available free of charge. Because we love you. Dearly.

Reach Online

From there, you can also search for other player’s custom content, get current information about the current Active Playlists and Active Challenges, look at Heatmaps for all our multiplayer maps, and even check into our ultra polite online forums for some cordial discussion about where your mother was last night and what she was doing wearing that cape and cowboy hat. (Play nice, we will ban you.)

Straight from HBO to your face!

That crash from jumping the broken bridge may have knocked your systems a little too hard, as now they're completely inoperable - so you must complete this mission HUDless! But don't worry. Normal difficulty is your biggest threat in this challenge - just be patient, and you'll get through this! We promise!
