Halo: Reach April Fools' Gag Goes Old-School


Getting in on the April Fools' Day action, Halo: Reach developer Bungie has jokingly revealed a new strategic mode for the Xbox 360 shooter, one that sounds ...familiar.

A prequel to the existing Halo trilogy, Halo: Reach arrives on Xbox 360 sometime this fall, with a multiplayer beta for Halo 3: ODST owners kicking off here on May 3.

        I think those lil' midget-alien guys should be pawns on the Covenant side, the Big hulking dudes from Halo1 should be Rooks on the Covenant side, a Ghost should be the bishop or knight, and then a Covenant Elite would be the Queen. That weird armchair-alien would be the King.

          The Arbiter should be Queen. Brutes can be I guess the Knight if they want variety otherwise the Sanghelli can be Knights easy enough.

          UNSC Can toss in Marines, ODST, Spartan's (II/III) and the board should be made bigger to fit the Scorpion and Warthogs.
