In just four weeks, Halo: Reach will be out and loads of you will call in sick to work.
To celebrate, Bungie has released a new video called A Spartan Will Rise, and you thought the one found on YouTube this morning was all you’d get.
In it, the video offers a preview of Noble Team’s story, who “through great sacrifice and courage, saved countless lives in the face of impossible odds”.
