Part of the Halo: Reach viral marketing campaign will be a live-action short filmed by Noam Murro called, “Birth of a Spartan”. Gamers will get their first chance to see the 60 second version tonight during “V’ on ABC, and for the UK it will air during the football match on Sky Sports 2. The short will feature what it takes to go from a recruit to a Spartan. I’m guessing it may show the augmentations implemented to candidates selected to be Spartans.
The short will air the full two and a half minute version on Xbox Live for Gold members only, so all you poor Silver members are out of luck…losers! Halo: Reach’s official site will also be carrying the live-action short later today, or tomorrow.
The Halo: Reach propaganda machine is in full force now. Don’t forget that the Multiplayer beta will be open on May 3, 2010 for all Halo fans that own a copy of Halo: ODST. Get your copy today and don’t miss out on what millions of gamers will be playing next week. You’ve been enlightened…
