Halo goes out with a bang in jetpack stunt

The most anticipated game release of the year Halo: Reach has today prepared for its midnight launch by sending a Spartan soldier through the skies of London’s Trafalgar Square strapped to a jetpack, a new gaming edition to the Reach title.

Reach, the fourth and final addition to the phenomenally popular Halo franchise from developer Bungie officially goes on sale at midnight this evening with stores across the UK expected to open especially for the hoards of eager Halo fans.

With the rocketman donning full Noble Team Spartan attire, Microsoft’s Director of Xbox and Entertainment, and orchestrater of the impressive stunt, Stephen McGill speaking on the imminent launch said: “Halo: Reach is the biggest and best Halo game yet with new features that will keep gamers entertained for years to come.

"One of the coolest new features are the Jetpacks that Noble Team Spartans are now equipped with. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the biggest entertainment launch of 2010 than with our very own Jetpack Spartan in one of London’s most iconic landmarks".

Made exclusively for the Xbox 360, Halo’s swansong will be available from midnight priced £49.99.
