XBox Halo: Reach Birth of a Spartan

Halo: Reach, the next Halo game to be released later in 2010, is being promoted with “Birth of a Spartan”, a television commercial featuring Carter 259 as his body is prepared for his future role as leader of the Spartans (Noble Team). We follow Carter from moment he wakes up in the morning, to his space flight to the orbital medical facility, through the actual procedures, and finally culminating in his dramatic realization of his transformation at the end of the film. Players will control Noble 6, another member of the elite supersolider squad continuing the human war with the alien Covenant.
