No doubt you've heard about the latest Halo: Reach marketing campaign. Like with past Halo games, Microsoft and Bungie have done more than just advertise Reach -- they've breathed life into the shooter.
Legends were built upon the name, not to mention a good deal of awesome live-action shorts. But with Reach, the first live-action videos are more like snapshots of a calm before some impending storm. A mother says her goodbyes to her son, a young couple argue whether their home is still safe, and UNSC soldiers wonder what it all means.
No doubt more of these shorts are on the way, possibly leading up to some climactic moment. You can find them on the official "Remember Reach" website, after the brief opening. But first, you'll be greeted with a robotic arm, constructed by Kuka Robots -- yeah, that thing is real.
The bot's job is to create points of light selected by players, and the eventual starry image has begun to reveal itself, creating the Monument of Light to Reach and its heroes. The instructions are simple, if you want to add a light of your own, with the only requirement being a Facebook account.
Note that the Monument of Light hasn't gone live in all regions just yet.
