New Halo: Reach campaign trailer

A new trailer for Halo: Reach hit the internets this morning! Dubbed “The Battle Begins,” the trailer reveals dramatic moments from the invasion of Reach, and follows the action into space as the heroic Spartans struggle to defend humanity from the Covenant. The environments revealed in the trailer offer a tantalizing glimpse at what we can expect from the campaign, though we wish they’d show more space combat already! The icing on the cake is the magnificent score by legendary composer Marty O’Donnell, whose sweeping scores are forever burned into the brains of an entire generation. Enough banter already, click play and experience the trailer for yourself, then let us know what you think in the comments.

    Is it REALLY the most anticipated game?

    I'm getting more excited the more I hear about Reach. Still not buying the Legendary edition no matter how cool that statue is... But I can't wait to play this.

    More gaming industry arrogance. Sad, I like Bungie, the seem good guys but "the most anticipated game of 2010"? How so? I'm not saying it isn't a MASSIVE game but saying it's more anticipated than the last WoW, SC2 or GT5(which is the first full iteration of it this gen) just smacks of being a bit too full of themselves. Another crappy trailer as well which does more to bore you by showing NO GAMEPLAY(as seems the fashion atm)than imagine this will be anything other than more Halo with added jetpacks. Not looking as good as I'd anticipated anyway. Beta was OK, mind, certainly more interesting than this slop but then again I do rate the novel of the same name(well, Fall Of..) as the worst thing I ever had the misfortune to read. Thems there is books for idiotz.

    I love the music in that trailer. Not much else to talk about, really.

    @Elementskater Good point, maybe everyone else should take note of the statement he said, and shut your f*cking traps.
  • Dabenguin - July 29, 2010 8:11 p.m.

    @TURbo Thank god. I too did not learn anything by watching this trailer, other than city fighting.

    I love Marty's soundtracks for Halo. I got the soundtrack for Halo 3 because of it. :D. Also why was that marine shootiung at the covenant dropship with a pistol? They're not that good.

    Thank goodness it didn't take the shitty way out with Eminem or Linkin Park.

    Looks great to me, I would like to know more about the space combat though.
  • gogo65uk - July 29, 2010 6:30 p.m.

    To be honest Gamesradar the trailer should have said xbox's most anticipated game of 2010 (thought Alan Wake would have been that already) Personally I promised myself after halo 3 I wont be buying another halo title ever again.
  • Doctalen - July 29, 2010 6:25 p.m.

    Meh
  • Elementskater - July 29, 2010 6:06 p.m.

    Well... either way, by the end, Reach will be glassed, and all the spartans save for maybe 6 or 7 die... read the book

    @Aeshir You're right, I suppose. Substitute "shoot-em-up" with "FPS" in my former post.
  • Aeshir - July 29, 2010 5:52 p.m.

    @GamesRadarJoeMcNeilly I thought they could be from other soldiers, but you'd expect them to be from the other Spartans. Just a stylistic choice, I guess. @db1331 You need the to learn the definition of the term shoot-em-up. It means a game in which you literally shoot up (or sideways, as it may be), like Gradius and Ikaruga. Never first person shooters.
  • db1331 - July 29, 2010 5:43 p.m.

    I'm with Jade on this one. The trailer didn't elicit any reaction from me. It just looks like your standard space marine shoot-em-up. Some of those explosions made me realize how badly the 360 is starting to show its age. The music was great though.
  • goochbiscuit - July 29, 2010 5:02 p.m.

    Looks amazing, I can't wait. Almost makes me wish I wasn't getting married like 2 weeks after this comes out. Goodbye, sweet life :/
  • GamesRadarJoeMcNeilly - July 29, 2010 5:01 p.m.

    @Aeshir maybe they're fighting alongside ODSTs? or maybe you just know too much about the Halo universe ;)
  • Aeshir - July 29, 2010 4:54 p.m.

    WOOOOOOOOOO! Looks awesome. One little nitpick though, Spartans don't wear dogtags! /halonerdderpderpderp
  • R3DRUN - July 29, 2010 4:53 p.m.

    The trailer should of started off as "THIS SEPTEMBER..." "DON'T FORGET TO PRE-ORDER HALO REACH..." "IT IS ACTUALLY NOT A PRE-ORDER IF YOU DO IT IN SEPTEMBER..." "SO MUG SOMEONE, STEAL SOME CASH FROM MOM'S PURSE, WHORE YOURSELF AT A REST STOP..." "JUST DON'T FORGET 9.14.2010"
