Is it just me, or does Halo Reach sound like a toothpaste?

At least Bungie decided not to go with their original title, Halo Reacharound.

REACH!! I cannot wait. Here are some rather lengthy yet wonderful interviews that drop some very interesting titbits of info, as well as being full of shiny screenshots.

IGN has a meaty interview telling us about the beta maps: http://uk.xbox360.ign.com/articles/108/1082381p1.html
Eurogamer has a 7 page article on the making of Halo 2: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/better-than-halo-the-making-of-halo-2-article

BALLS! There is another one but I cannot find it anywhere. Head over to GameInformer as well, as they have tons of Reach news.

I think it will be 16 players, can't see them taking a step back from Big Team. 4 player co-op though, of course. And I'm reasonably confident that they will have firefight in it, something that you will experience in ODST - I'd be happy to play it with you, if you want.

In the beta there is going to be a game mode that is there solely to push the edges of Bungie's servers, which is a great idea. But I cannot remember how many players... hmm...

MP or co-op? Co-op will be at least four, but given that Noble Squad (your squad in the campaign) consists of six members, there are rumours of six-player co-op. Bungie have said nothing about it, but speculation is rife.

As far as MP goes, it'll be at least 12 (6v6 big team-esque gametypes - Invasion is one, and I think that'll be in the beta, as one of the maps is an Invasion map).

Not sure there have been many details on it yet. Certainly, I haven't seen any beyond confirmation it's a 6v6 gametype. Also, one team has to play as Spartans, and the other lot has to play as Elites. It might be along the lines of a firefight scenario, but PvP instead of AI enemies for the Spartans.

If there's more on this that I just haven't seen/read, then anyone else feel free to jump in and correct me. Also, it uses vehicles - it seems like a sort of vague Big Team type malarkey.

Bungie has stated that there will be no option to choose to play as an Elite as your default character this time around, unlike Halo 3. Everyone will play as a Spartan, unless you're playing specific gametypes where this is not the case, like Invasion, in which case your class is "forced" (again, there's no choice; you're either on the Spartan team or you're on the Elite team).

The only other new gametype announced so far is Headhunter. Seems to be a gametype where you earn points/skulls for headshot kills. When you are killed, you drop all your skulls for others to collect.

I think.

Both are featured in the multiplayer trailer if you have another look.

YEAH I WONDERED ABOUT THE HEADHUNTER STUFF, THANKS FOR THAT MATE, IN REGARDS TO THE INVASION THING - I DONT SEE WHY PEOPLE WOULD BE FORCED TO PLAY AS ELITES/SPARTANS IT SHOULDNT MAKE MUCH DIFFERENCE IN THE BIG SCHEM OF THINGS, UNLESS THE CAN ONLY USE RACE SPECIFIC WEAPONS AND VEHICLES?

Well the Spartans can sprint now, and the Elites can roll, so that's one thing that sets them apart.

Plus, Elites are dicks. Hate 'em.

Watched that yesterday. Some bloomin' lovely gameplay footage. It still looks like Halo, which is great.

Oh, have you chaps seen this, turnaround of an air assassination: http://downloads.bungie.net/videos/onthewingsoflove.mov - pretty cool, right?
