When the multiplayer beta for Bungie’s “Halo: Reach” drops in just a few short weeks on May 3, gamers won’t have the luxury of employing Halo 3’s multipurpose bubble shields or the ability to dual wield weapons.
The news comes from this week’s episode of GameTrailersTV. A Bungie representative said the two features were cut so as to streamline the multiplayer experience.
Also in the show is the first look at Reach’s Invasion mode, a gametype Bungie has kept largely a secret.
Invasion pits Spartans versus Elites and is, very simply, similar to Bad Company 2’s Rush mode where areas are unlocked as the game progresses.
Check out the entire episode, with lots and lots more information, embedded below.
