LOS ANGELES — While most of the surprises in the new E3 Halo: Reach campaign trailer – revealed yesterday – were trumped by players’ exposure to the public multiplayer beta in May, one thing did indeed stand out: Space Combat. The trailer closes with two Spartans strapping into a fighter that launches triumphantly from Reach’s surface into orbit to do battle with Covanent forces in a scene that looks every but as good as any space battle from the Star Wars series. See the trailer for yourself on Xbox LIVE or check it out here.
Halo: Reach is set for release September 14 and I’m sure we can expect even more surprises before then. In the meantime, don’t forget about the jetpacks. They rule.
