Halo: Reach
Halo: Reach Interview: Brian Jarrard & Niles Sankey Talk All Things Reach
Written By
View author's profile

While in London last week checking out Halo: Reach, we caught up with Bungie's Community Director, Brian Jarrard, and Campaign Designer, Niles Sankey, to talk all things Halo: Reach.

We delve deeper into the subtle changes that Bungie have made to the final game since the beta - did you know they've changed the movement and jump speed between the two versions? - as well as why Bungie decided to send the Spartans into space. There's all that and more. More, more, more, more, more.... And more!

Halo: Reach is out September 14th. Make sure you've read our hands-on preview before then though, it'd be rude not to.

Wow!!! Lots of anger going on this comment board. Especially for such an awesome article.

Come on guys... Do not let the standard run of Halo trolls get your fur all riled up.

Reach is going to be so amazing. Little bummed about their justification for the gernades and their fix for it... You will be able to run faster, jump higher???? I am glad to hear about their change in the armor lock ability.

im not that bothered about this game, but this will be one of the best games , this year. im just waiting for gears of war 3. But when i heard bloodgulch was going to be in this game , then this game is must buy.
does anyone know if theyre going to release some of halo ce maps , such as side winder, hang em high, rat race, timberland , etc.

halo ce and halo wars was the best in my opinion. ive got halo 3 and odst. but i play it , but not that really into it. odst would have been fun , but no match making , and health dont regenerate. Reach will have matchmaking for firefight.

i played the beta , and it was an amazing experiences.

still no halo will ever beat halo ce. all them memories , playin sniper matches on sniper dream mod servers. good times , good times.

Call of duty black ops , and Halo reach , and fables 3 . top tiles releasing this year. so far best year in my opinion where lots of top game are releasing.

wont buy fable 3 , mainly because i cant be bothered finishhing fable 2.

im not really bothered about achievements that much , unless theyre ridiulously hard, for example , get 3 overkill in 1 match (with a stupid weapon) i finially got overkill on halo 3 on swords gametype on the snow map. i know the achievements list are out , but everyone knows more will come as dlc are going to be released.

I cant wait until this comes out. I wish the months before this game another decent game was released. I have nothin to play until Reach. ANyways I pre-ordered the Legendary edition and im going to the midnight release at Gamestop. Might as well get the Legendary since its the last Halo game. At least for the next 10 years.

Wait what? Change is hard? What change? One of my biggest complaints about the beta was it felt like I had just popped in Halo 3. It didn't play any different for me at all. (And some of the people on my friends list feel similarly so I know I'm not the only one) Anyway, some interesting stuff nonetheless. Still won't be getting this on launch. Either I'll have it if I decide to get the Reach Xbox 360 next year, or a couple of years later when it comes down in price.

@#51 - The armour abilities totally change the complex of the game if you ask me. It's no longer run and gun. You now have a tactical element, with people armour locking, jetpacking away (or dropping down on you), using holograms to dupe you, going invisible and screwing with your radar, and so on.

Armor Abilities are just a replacement for equipment. Different systems for the same thing. (With the new abilities that come with a sequel)

@#53 - Well, I personally never bothered with the equipment in 3. It was too much of a hassle and they were too sporadically placed. Bubble shields and portable grav-lifts are light years away from holograms, jetpacks, invisibility cloaks, armour locks, etc anyway. It is however no different from how MW2 was an upgrade of COD4 or BC2 was an evolution of BC1. It is, after all, a sequel and not a new IP. Change it too much and people moan. Don't change it enough and people moan. They're damned if they do and they're damned if they don't.

Also, I swear Dan Webb is the voice actor for Zaeed from Mass Effect 2. It's almost uncanny.

I like how they changed to make the armour lock fairer. But I found it annoying in the beta how when you activated it when you would pan the camera around and look at your surroundings wherever you were looking, when it deactivated you would look exactly where your camera was looking so if someone was spamming it in front of me and I was behind them they could just lunge and kill me even though they were facing the other way when they activated it. It was pretty minor but it was annoying

@#54 "It is however no different from how MW2 was an upgrade of COD4 or BC2 was an evolution of BC1. It is, after all, a sequel and not a new IP." Exactly. They just took their equipment idea, and evolved it. Now it works a lot better than equipment, but, to me anyway, it feels so similar to the equipment system that it doesn't feel like it drastically changed gameplay.

"Change it too much and people moan. Don't change it enough and people moan." Indeed, but between the two I'm glad it turned out this way. I'd rather it feel like a game I've already played and know I somewhat enjoy instead of feeling so totally different that I don't even think it feels like Halo anymore. But because it feels like Halo 3 to me, I know there's no rush to go get it, but at the same time I know I'll enjoy it so I will eventually get it.

Cont: Like how I did not like Call of Duty 4 at all. It was way too different from COD1 & COD2. It became much more casual friendly for my taste, so I've lost all interest in any IW game that comes out(I haven't even played MW2. Watching all the gameplay videos it looked like pretty much everything I hated from COD4 x100). (And depending on how Black Ops turns out, I most likely will lose interest in the entire COD series) So I'd rather it play like a game I know I like than turn out like what happened to COD.

This is going to be a great game but banning people for quiting mid-game? If I get a team of people who aren't very good and we're against some really good players, the chances are that my teammates will quit. So am I forced to take a beating alone, lose my good kdr and have a really bad time playing as I don't want to get banned?? Not good if that's the case...

@32 You are a fucking dumbass, the things that fucked up MW2 was shit the community cried about. The community whined and qq:ed like cunts and they got what they wanted to be added that wasnt in cod4.

If they knew they would had gotten a bunch of cheating/haxing/modding/ worthless piece of shit community in return after catering to them like a fucking soccer mum. I guess they would had just gone SSLP style instead with 2 fingers up

Um, you don't get banned for a single quit, people who can't listen. You get banned for HABITUALLY QUITTING. Now, go get a dictionary and look up the word "habitual". Seriously, you guys need to.

My solution for the jackhole quitters has always been, "they should not be able to play another game, not even a custom game, until the match they just quit gets over. If they had to leave to do something important, this won't affect them. And if they're quitting to be jerks, they just got what they deserved."

Actually looking more forward to Forge World, FAR too few games have full-scale level editors anymore, and from what I've seen I'm going to put a few hundred hours in just making stages, lol.

Also hope Bungie do throwbacks to Halo 1 and 2 with either uber secret powerful weapons (Scarab Gun) or hijack-able vehicles that are A) insanely awesome and B) nowhere to be found anywhere else in the game.

Assault on the Control Room. Banshee Hijacking. Now those were the good ol' days. NO MORE SKULLS, that's way more lame than secret weapons or vehicles.

Hahaha I litterally cant wait. . . . the controllers are already in the stores and I'm flipping out on its release. I have the Legendary Edition reserved and I just need to get my hands on the counsole then I toss my MW2 one to the curb and love Halo all over again. Its invigorating to see Bungie so. . . included in the communitty, it brought shivers down my spines knowing all the effort they'll be placing in this games "cheat detecting" software. For Halo fans this is a must buy and all the people who aren't excited about it let them be. . . as stated prior to my post they are simply stating their opinion. I'm sure there are games out there that they enjoy that we dont that doesn't mean we have to gnaw eachother's heads off theres plenty of time to do that in Reach.

As for their tweaking on the quitting feature at first I was against it. Now after being reintroduced to Halo once again (2 years out of the game still a SGNT in the new ranking system lol) I feel like this move is a good one. My brother and I were playing matches a few nights back and the entire enemy team was able to quit with the exception of one person? How is this fair? How can you put that against a player's record? I think Bungie has their heads on the right way and I hope to see more titles related to their name in the future.

Love Bunjie.
