Halo: Reach Beta gameplay 'never seen before'

Microsoft calls title the 'ultimate game of the year'

Microsoft has told CVG that the Halo: Reach Beta will feature 'never seen before' gameplay - ramping up excitement for the public opening on May 3rd.

The firm released gameplay footage earlier this month as part of what Bungie called a 'multiplayer bomb'.

However, speaking in a new interview with CVG, director of Xbox and Entertainment at Microsoft Stephen McGill said there was plenty more to be revealed:


"As you can imagine, we're really excited about Halo Reach and with the beta coming in May you'll get a chance to experience some of the new features and gameplay never seen before," he said. "Obviously I don't want to give too much away but it really is shaping up to be the ultimate game of the year."

Bungie community chief Brian Jarrard previously told CVG that what the firm showed at X10 was "the tip of the iceberg in terms of what we have planned for Halo: Reach's multiplayer capability".
