This is what happens when you’re in an “open” games show event and you’re not quite sure what to do. Keza wrote this.

Bungie used gamescom to reveal a never-before-seen Firefight level for Halo: Reach – it’s called Corvette, and it’s pretty awesome.

It’s a huge hangar in the recognisable Halo blues and purples, with plenty of shielded balcony positions for sniping and an open floor ideal for gravity hammer rampages We played a ten-minute Firefight with three other gamescom attendees (and won, obviously); waves of enemies were periodically deposited from dropships and we had to work together to kill ’em all as quickly as possible.

Reach is finished now, and will be in reviewers’ clawlike hands in the next few weeks and in shops on September 14th.
