Hey a curious question but has anybody though of making a single player of this? I was reading the Book of it by:Eric Nyloyd and i thought that this would make an epic Single Player. I realize the game is coming out in 2010. but some people don't have a 360 and would enjoy playing a level like this. so does anyone want to do this. i could use all the help i need.

Heres what happened on Reach if you don't know.

Basically Reach was a planet that was closet to earth but besides that fact it was a military base for a secret program called SPARTAN. There they trained kids from the age 6 until the year 2535 that's when the covenant attacked. over 70 spartans died trying to protect the planet but it was to much the coenet killed them all. the only one who made it out alive was 117 aka John.


So basicaly that would be the single player part is where you have to fight w/ you'r fellow Spartans and try to portect Reach. but of course you would fail.

They are doing the Battle of Reach for the 4th Halo game. Halo: Reach

Anyway, I feel like it would be horrible, not because since the book is mainly character development, but because other than the upcoming Flood Campaign, or CMT SPV1 I haven't actually seen a good campaign.

Incorrect. The Spartans split up into two teams, Red and Blue, Red staying behind to protect Reach, while Blue went to do some stuff in space. Out of Blue team, both John and Linda survived. For Red team, quite a few Spartans survived Reach, only to die elsewhere.

Yes, some of red tram survived reach, but only one or two of them died from what I remember. The group that survived, made up of about 4 people, ended up being trapped in the center of onyx forever.

It was a novel, they took advantage of your imagination, everyone liked the books more, I'm sure of that.

Too bad Kurt has to blow himself up in his heroic actions D=

But you really think they are TRAPPED? It's some sort of forerunner bunker, I'm sure they'll get out somehow, it didn't end with "And the spartans knew they were trapped so they *** each other untill they died of boredom" They just found themselfes in a new place... atleast that's how I recall it.

um well 1st of all its spelled Nylud, lol, second i like the idea , and this would be fun, but it would be very complicated to do alot of what happens in the book, and yes the books have better story than the games b/c the books can give u moar epicness

Yeah pretty much. there trapped in a kind of area with a protective bubble around it that the forerunners made as a bunker to survive halo's detonation. They probally will get out since I'm sure the forerunners built a type of back door to get out. But it's not like a little space it is a pretty big area so it might take awhile.

hmmm well, i guess here's my opinion what will happen:
Spartans and everyone get out, they then attack elites which leads to
Halo 4: start another fight.

Im pretty sure Blue team will show up one way or another in the coming years even as Bungie is finsihing Halo's IP. Remeber Reach is Halo's Swan song for its Mother who is moving away. So yeah the Story may go beyond the battle of Reach, maybe even following Blue team into Onyx.

Nah, it's a forerunner planet. Like all metallic and forerunnery.

http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/halo/images/0/08/Legendary_Planet.jpg

Also it's still a no, whether I'm right or wrong about the planet. Halo: Reach takes place back before Halo 1. So in the time line it couldn't happen. Unless Bungie is planing a Back to the Future concept. Master Chief and Cortana go back and time to help the Master Chief and Cortana? (o.0)

Not the 4th halo game. The second expansion for the third game.(they dont call It "Halo 3 Reach"..But they dont call ODST "Halo 3 ODST" either for that matter.)

Yeah but the project got alot of different names,right? So will Reach,probably,still its not a new 4th game.I mean this is pre halo. If the game is built on the same engine as Halo 3 and ODST its not a new game.:)

Reach isn't going to be on the same engine. It will be on an entirely different engine with a graphics improvement. From what I heard on the bungie forums is its run on a AAA engine?

The core of onyx is a gigantic colony spaceship/space station in Forerunner slipspace if I remember correctly. Also, I don't think a campaign of Fall of Reach would be good. Try a machinima. In fact, I was working with some other guy on this a while ago, but it failed.

Guys he didn't say that games built on the same engine as other games aren't new, he said that games built on the Halo 3 engine aren't new. Thats not true either, but your points are thus invalid.

I think it would be a good idea for Bungie to use a new engine for Halo Reach it would allow them to change the game up a bit while at the same time preserving the core of Halo.

No they are MODS or EXPANSIONS. Which is my point Reach would be like a Expansion..Also thougt Microsoft held all copyright for Halo,and Bungie for Halo 3, So in order to make a totaly new game they would need to work with Microsoft again? WouldŽnt they? And if they do own copyright for Halo 3 a expansion would make more sense than a totaly new game. Im not entierly sure thougt.
