Last night's Spike TV VGAs gave us the promised look at Halo Reach, and for fans of cooperative gaming, things look very interesting.
The trailer looks to be an opening cinematic, all done in engine, and gives us our first look at some other Spartans. Each Spartan has different charactersitics and traits, it's not just a carbon copy of the Master Chief like we see in Halo multiplayer. Spartans have markings on their armor, different styles of armor, and even bionic limbs. For the first time, gamers are given a look at what's under the Spartan helmet as well.
Finally, the interesting bit is the possiblity of 6 player co-op. In the video we do see 5 unique Spartans, also teased by the shadowy logo that's been revealed. So why do we think it's 6 player?
Listen to the line carefully at 2:06 in the video. "Is this our new number 6?" Things just got a whole lot more interesting.
