Halo: Reach, Bungie’s final Halo game, as we’ve already seen, is gearing up to be the biggest, baddest and most powerful Halo game Halo-heads have ever seen, but what it all boils down to is multiplayer.
Halo 3 remains the second-most played game on Xbox Live, as multiplayer, is arguably where the game succeeds at its finest and Reach has high hopes for Xbox Live.
Revealed in this week’s Bungie Weekly Update was the first multiplayer environment for Halo: Reach.
It’s called PowerHouse. It’s based off an environment from the game and looks to be a menacing, multi-layered beast. Below is PowerHouse, in its conceptualized form.
In the game’s video documentary it was revealed that the power-ups like Sprint and Cloaking would make their way into the multiplayer universe of Reach, but Bungie has lots more in store for multiplayer.
“There’s some monumental stuff looming in Reach’s multiplayer world that’ll flip the script if all goes to plan. Sounds all kinds of mysteriously ambitious, doesn’t it? It is,” according to urk at the Bungie Weekly Update.
The multiplayer beta for Halo: Reach begins May 3, 2010. Are you ready?
