Halo: The Fall of Reach, also known as Halo: Fall of Reach or for short as TFoR is an upcoming first-person tactical shooter game developed by 343 Industries and published by Microsoft Studios for the Xbox One. It is the thirteenth installment in the Halo series and the sixth Halo game to be created by 343 Industries.

It serves as a prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved and as an introduction for newcomers to the Halo universe, just like the novel Halo: The Fall of Reach, on which the game is based upon. Like all other Halo games, it was given an ESRB "Mature 16+" Rating, unlike Halo Wars and Halo 5: Guardians, which were given a "Teen" Rating.

Unlike most other Halo games before it which were announced at an E3, TFoR was announced at Gamescom 2015, along with a trailer for the game, on the same day Halo Wars 2 was announced. TFoR's release date was revealed later by a tweet on 343 Industries' twitter page to be January 10, 2016, worldwide. Later, in an interview with IGN, 343 Industries employee and the Executive Producer of TFoR, Dan Ayoub revealed that the game will run on 1080p 60fps.

Just like all the previous FPS games of the Halo series, TFoR consists of multiplayer. It is a mix of Halo 3's and Halo: Reach's multiplayer. Just like Halo 4, Halo Online and Halo 5: Guardians, the multiplayer part of the game is officially integrated into canon. Spartan Abilities return. Although there are 7 Spartan Abilities in TFoR, it must be noted that not all of them are same as Halo 5's Spartan Abilities. They can be used both in all game modes. Firefight returns, with options for AI companions or friends or solo.

TFoR features Downloadable Content for Multiplayer and Firefight. It is free for all players. TFoR doesn't consist of any Map Pass, unlike Halo 4 and like most other Halo games. The Downloadable Content features new maps and game modes and sometimes, new weapons. A total of 9 DLCs were released for TFoR, over a span of 4 years.

Plot

In 2511, Dr. Catherine Elizabeth Halsey establishes the ORION Project Generation II, more commonly known as SPARTAN-II program. During 2517, along with Junior Lieutenant Jacob Keyes, she goes to Eridanus II for observing a child called John who will later be conscripted into the program. She tests him for a final confirmation, and is impressed by the results. Later, after many months, ONI agents enter the boy's home at night and abduct him, replacing with a flash clone.

John and the other trainees are subjected to intense training for the next few years. The training teaches them many military things, like disarming a bomb, shooting a rifle, treating a chest wound and many things. They become proficient in studies, too. The holographic classes with Déjà are proven to be extremely useful. In 2525, all 75 Spartans are subjected to biological augmentation procedures, the toughest part in their entire training. This ends to be a disaster, as 30 trainees have died, and a dozen others crippled, far beyond the limits in which a human could fight. This leaves only 33 Spartans to be alive and fit for combat, although, over the years, the number would gradually decrease. Later, In a briefing with Vice Admiral Michael Stanforth, the Spartans learn about the Covenant and their incident near Harvest

In 2525, after the partially successful augmentation procedures, the Spartans handle a variety of missions; capturing Insurrectionist leader and former UNSC soldier Colonel Robert Watts, putting down rebel factions on Jericho VII, removing a black market bazaar near Roosevelt Military Base and other such missions. These missions are arranged in such an order that each mission brings them closer to Chi Ceti IV, the planet on which the DAMASCUS Training Facility was located on. Upon reaching there on the UNSC Commonwealth, they spot a Covenant ship, about a third the size of the Commonwealth, at the far edge of the star system. However, the Covenant ship initiates an intra-system Slipspace jump and came closer to the Commonwealth and attacked it. After a brief battle, Captain Wallace of the Commonwealth agrees to send Dr. Halsey and the Spartans to the Testing Facility on the surface of Chi Ceti IV.

After reaching there, Dr. Halsey reveals to the Spartans that Project MJOLNIR, mistakenly thought by some Spartans to be a weapon, was a set of Powered Armor, called as MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor Mark IV. She explains the mechanics of the suit, about the gel-layer which doubles the strength of the wearer and multiplies the reaction time by a factor of five, about the reflective coating, which was added recently to disperse the plasma discharges shot by the Covenant ships if they actually use it in small-scale, and other specifications. She attaches the armor first to John and makes him run through an obstacle course while attaching it to the rest of the Spartans. After 40-50 minutes, they leave the facility in a Pelican, en route to the Commonwealth.

During the trip, John finds about 32 ANVIL-II Missiles in the Pelican and gets an idea that since the Covenant ship's damaged, the crew might remove its shields in order to save power, so if he can get inside the Covenant ship, he can set the timer to the nuke and escape, letting it blow inside the Covenant ship, destroying. . When he expresses this to Dr. Halsey, she objects at first but later approves, since they are out of options. John puts on his thruster pack and then begins his course towards the ship. When he nears the hull, he realizes that the shields are still up and that they drop when the turret fires. He times his impact, and then hits into the hole in the hull just before the turret fires, causing the shields to drop and him to enter.

Inside, John finds only Sam, Kelly and Will. The team of four proceed further into the ship, with Sam claiming the ship itself might be alive, for all he knows. The first encounter was with a Ruuhtian Kig-Yar, which they finish off quickly. Soon, they find more Kig-Yars and start fighting them, during which Sam quips that the aliens look like Jackals. They soon encounter more Jackals and Grunts, with Sam making jokes on them all. Then they encounter an Elite Zealot, and have a great difficulty. Then more Elites come, and attack the team, during which one plasma bolt hits Sam's chestplate and melts his armor, making a hole. Finally, they go to an empty room, supposedly near the reactor and set the nukes. Sam reveals the hole to the others, and volunteers to stay behind and make sure no one deactivates the nuke. John objects at first but lets him go. Sam sets a three-minute countdown and tells John to hurry. The Spartans run back all the way, ignoring most of the enemies and escape the ship as it explodes, propelling them outwards before they are picked up by the Commonwealth. John now understands what CPO Mendez meant by "a life spent" and "a life wasted" and realizes that humanity has a chance of winning this war, but at a high cost.

In 2535, John's team, now designated as Blue Team, are tasked with repelling the Covenant invaders on Jericho VII. Blue Team enters the planet using SOEIVs. They are immediately attacked by Grunts and five Covenant Banshees. They use fougasses set up by the Marines to destroy the Banshees and run away, implying there are Marines somewhere nearby. They start searching and soon reach a human soldier camp with Army and Marine personnel and gather their equipment and weapons. John then reveals his plan to the Marines, that they shall distract the Covenant so that Red Team can slip through the confusion and place a HAVOK Tactical Nuke so that the next Covenant dropship that comes will be blown to smithereens. The Marines reveal that they have buried a spiderweb pattern of Lotus mines earlier that morning, so it should be enough to distract the enemy.

Their conversation is cut short when Kelly detects a huge army of Grunts coming towards them. They all start to move to the extraction point. After walking enough distance away from the camp, John sent the denotation signal to the mines from his, causing huge explosions and killing the Grunts. He then gets word from Red Team's leader Will-043 that the HAVOK nuke has been armed. John then reports to Captain de Blanc, who congratulates the Spartan and sends a dropship to immediately escort them, saying "it's happening again", meaning that the Covenant is going to glass Jericho VII too. John and the team board the Pelican and later the UNSC Resolute, where John watches the Covenant glassing the planet.

Features

Main Menu

The Main Menu is an unique one in all of the Halo series. Unlike the menus of the previous games where you select the options in a table, TFoR introduces the "free selection mode", consisting of a cursor that can be aimed anywhere at the screen, much similar to Destiny's main menu cursor. The background is live, of the Orbital Defense Platforms and UNSC ships orbiting around Reach. The options to Campaign, Arena Wars, settings and others are all placed around the screen. The cursor is the "no weapon" reticle the MJOLNIR Powered Armor uses when the wearer is not holding any weapon.

Spartan Abilities

Spartan Abilities are back in TFoR. There are 7 of them, a reference to Bungie's favorite number. Although even Halo 5 has 7 spartan abilities, it must be noted that not all of them are same as Halo 5's. Dual-Wielding and Boarding are now not considered as spartan abilities, but is included nonetheless. Ground Pound, Stabilizer and Spartan Charge have been removed, since the game takes place pre-2558. However, it contains Air Stomp, that functions similar to Ground Pound. To make up for the abscence of Spartan Charge, a melee at full sprint charge now has high damage comparatively.

  • Sprint - Run much more faster, at the cost of shooting and shield regeneration.
  • Slide - Now, you can slide while sprinting, perfect for a shotgun kill.
  • Thruster Pack - Thrust yourself in any direction brief distance to avoid taking fire.
  • Jump pack - Launch yourself a few meters up in air to get over that just missed ledge.
  • Clamber - Climb over the ledge just to give the enemy one heck of a surprise.
  • Parkour - Run off walls to traverse the map quickly.
  • Air Stomp - While in air, stomp the ground below you to kill enemies instantly.

Cutscenes

Unlike previous games, the cutscenes are made by Blur Studios, the same studio which made the cutscenes and trailers for Halo Wars, Halo 2: Anniversary and Halo Wars 2. The art style is similar to that of Halo Wars 2, however it sports an increase in the lighting and overall texture quality of the cutscenes. All of the cutscenes are pre-rendered, unlike most other Halo games which include in-game rendered ones. It must be noted that the terminals scenes were however made by Sequence, though they are much more lively than the terminals of their previous games or the animated series Halo: The Fall Of Reach, which is known to have unrealistic-looking sequences.

Weapons

Unlike previous Halo games where you can wield only two weapons at once, TFoR introduces a new perspective called the Side-Arm mode, which allows the playet to equip three weapons at once. The third weapon is called the sidearm and includes the pistols. The first two weapons can be switched normally using the 'Y' button, but when you double-tap, the player will wield the side-arm.

The sidearm mode explains why you get a sidearm when you hold a flag, a ball, a skull or a bomb in the multiplayer game modes Capture the Flag, Ricochet, Oddball and Assault respectively.

Campaign

Setting

The game is set in various locations but is mostly on Reach. Two of the other places you can play on is the Covenant ship Unrelenting and the Damascus Testing Facility.

Levels

The game is played in first person as other Halo Games. Special Editions players get to control UNSC ships in the exclusive level "Deston". Players gets a chance to use many new weapons and vehicles, such as the MA2B Individual Combat Weapon System, Heavy Machine Gun-47 and the Booster Frame. The player is encouraged to find hidden skulls and secrets throughout the game.

The game consists of 10 main campaign levels, with one bonus level for players having one of the Special editions of the game and more being added by DLCs.

Arena Wars

Main article: Arena Wars

TFoR contains multiplayer which is a mix of the multiplayers of Halo 3 and Halo: Reach. Just like Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, multiplayer is officially integrated canon, called Arena Wars. In Arena Wars, the players are surviving members of Alpha, Beta and Gamma Companies of SPARTAN-IIIs in the year 2554, on a training facility located on Earth in the city of Bangalore. Unlike in War Games, where S-IVs train in a simulation, the Arena Wars maps are real, and players use real guns, except they use non-lethal rounds and the plasma effect of Covenant weapons is simulated by special devices made by the Swords of Sanghelios, so that there is no real damage. This is the first 343i game in which the multiplayer players are SPARTAN-IIIs, instead of the regular SPARTAN-IVs. Playable Elites are back, and their ranking is the same as the Spartan ones. They are members of Swords of Sanghelios who train alongside SPARTAN-IIIs in the traning facility

Armors

Main article: Halo: The Fall of Reach/Armor Permutations

TFoR introduces the option of using many armor sets. Most of the MJOLNIR armor sets are from Halo: Reach. This is the first game made by 343i to include Mark IV and V armors other than the GEN2 ones. Unlike in Campaign, the Mark IV and all other armors have energy shielding in Arena Wars. Just like in Halo: Reach, the armors can be purchased by Credits. The following armor sets are available for Spartans:

Sangheili, although customizable with different armors, cannot be cross-customized with other armors. This is because in the Covenant, the armor indicates the rank and speciality of the Sangheili. The following Sangheili Armors are available:

Co-operative Gameplay

Just like the previous Halo games, co-op is available for 2 members on the same console and 4 members over Xbox LIVE. Unlike Halo 5: Guardians, TFoR re-introduces split screen. In some levels, co-op players have different characters, in some, the 4th player is a copy of either the 1st, 2nd or 3rd player's character depending on the 4th's wish and in some levels, all the players have the same character. There is no co-op available in the level "...Or the beginning?" and if playing on the same console, the 1st player will have control and if playing on XBOX Live, each player plays the level on their own. However, it will be counted as played on co-op.

Weapon Skins

Just like Halo 4, TFoR features weapon skins for use in Firefight and Multiplayer. The difference between Weapon Skins of Halo 4 and TFoR is that in Halo 4, weapon skins are unlocked only by DLC while in TFoR, they are unlocked in both DLC and Legendary/Heroic Unlocks

Skulls

Just like the previous games, skulls are easter eggs that add special content to the gameplay and make it more challenging or fun.

  1. Iron - Death on solo restarts to the mission start, death of one player on co-op causes all players to revert to last checkpoint.
  2. Black Eye - Shields recharge only if you melee enemies.
  3. Acrobatic - Enemies evade grenades more easily, vehicles and explosive projectiles (similar to Tough Luck from previous games).

  7. Mythic - Enemies have twice health.

  9. Explosive - The mass of all objects in the game is reduced (similar to Sputnik from Halo 2)
  10. Grunt Birthday Party - Confetti and children cheers are produced when you headshot Grunts.
  11. Grunt Funeral - Grunts explode like Plasma Grenades when killed.
  12. IWHYBD - Rare combat dialogue is more frequent.

Legendary Unlocks

Just like in other games, the player unlocks many things when he completes the game on Legendary.TFoR, however, introduces them in Heroic too.

The following things are available when one finishes the game on Heroic and Legendary only.

  • MJOLNIR Mark V Armor
  • "Space Robocop" Achievement
  • "A Spartan" Achievement (Legendary only)
  • "Humanity's Savior" Achievement (Legendary Only)
  • Grunt Funeral Skull
  • Weapon Skins
  • MJOLNIR Mark VI Armor (Legendary Only)

Bundles

Halo: Novel Bundle

Halo: The Fall of Reach was included in a bundle called the Halo: Novel Bundle, which includes TFoR and Halo: First Strike in 1080p 60fps. This was made as both the games were game versions of the two best-selling Halo novels named similarly. It is aimed towards gamers who are new to the franchise.

Official Game Guide

TFoR Game Guide

The Halo: The Fall of Reach Official Guide was released on February 7, one week after the release of the game, by PRIMA Games. It is designed to flesh out the entire game's secrets, including campaign walkthrough, multiplayer tips, firefight tips, skull locations, terminals and much more. However, it did not include the DLCs. The DLCs will be included in another game guide to be published by PRIMA Games, with release date either in late 2017 or early 2018.


The Art of Halo: The Fall of Reach

The Art of Halo: The Fall of Reach is an artbook published by 343 Industries. It showcases the art created by 343i's artists during the development of TFoR. A special version of the Artbook is included in the physical Special Editions of the game, with a few extra arts. The standalone version costs about USD $30.04.

Official Soundtrack

TFoR Official Soundtrack

The Official Soundtrack of TFoR was composed together by Neil Davidge and Kazuma Jinnouchi, unlike previous 343i Halo games, with a single main composer It was released on January 30, 2016, the same release date as the game itself. Like the artbook, the soundtrack was also included in the physical Special Editions of the game, though it contained no extra tracks.

Trivia

  • It is the second Halo game to be a game version of a novel, the first one being Halo: First Strike.
  • It is the first Halo game to use the "Captured" font on its logo. It was used because the Captured font gives a battered and broken look, indicating wars, especially referring to the Fall of Reach.
  • It is the first Halo game to contain a remake of both Blood Gulch and Valhalla, other than forge remakes by players.
  • It shares a similarity with Halo 5: Guardians, as the opening cutscene of both the games' second level is of Blue Team jumping out of a Pelican in space and using thruster packs to maneuver them through space to reach their destination.
  • When asked why there isn't Warzone in TFoR, Bonnie Ross said that with TFoR, they wanted to "recreate Halo: Reach's multiplayer." However, she said that "something special is on its way", hinting there might be a new game mode or something similar to Warzone is an upcoming DLC.
