Halo: Reach TV Spot Shows Origins of Spartans

Microsoft and Bungie are so excited about the Halo: Reach multiplayer beta arriving on May 3 that they have put out a commercial advertising the game. The live-action commercial highlights how a Spartan is created.

Titled, “Birth of a Spartan,” the 60-second long commercial shows how Carter 259 becomes a Spartan and the future leader of Noble Team in Halo: Reach. The bio-augmentation procedure is beautifully shot and while the commercial advertises the Halo: Reach beta it really is an advertisement for ODST, which the beta is available on. Purchase Halo 3: ODST, play the beta, and then purchase Halo: Reach when it arrives this holiday season.

Microsoft is anticipating big sales of Halo 3: ODST this week and in the coming weeks as players purchase the title in order to play the Reach beta. Look for it to emerge on Top-10 charts once again.
