It’s nearly upon us.
The biggest Xbox 360 exclusive of 2010 – “Halo: Reach” – will be released in Singapore on 14th September 2010 in three different editions – Standard (S$74.90), Limited (S$84.90) and the Legendary edition (S$199.00, all pictured above) – to satisfy every Halo fan.
“Halo: Reach,” developed exclusively for the Xbox 360 by acclaimed developer Bungie, is the prequel to the super-popular game “Halo”. “Halo” is one of the biggest video game series in history, and is the Xbox’s most lucrative franchise. “Halo: Reach” is the culmination of 10 years of award winning “Halo” games that have raised expectations for what can be achieved in a video game.
“Halo: Reach” tells the story of Noble Team, a group of Spartans, who through great sacrifice and courage saved countless lives in the face of impossible odds. The planet Reach is humanity’s last line of defense between the Covenant and their destruction of Earth. If it falls, humanity will be perched on the brink of destruction.
As evidence of the game’s highly anticipated release, more than 2.7 million players participated in the “Halo: Reach” multiplayer beta in May, making it the largest console video game beta test on record. It was also more than triple the size of the historic “Halo 3” beta. Are you excited yet? Here’s what you’ll be getting in the Limited and Legendary Editions.
