A half-hour's worth of gameplay is all well and good, but do you want to know the insides and outs of the Halo: Reach multiplayer beta? Of course you do.
Joystiq has the lot. Everything from customizing your armour and the controls of the taster to its theater mode and the abilities and gear you'll get in it.
Get the whole lot of videos below. You'd be pretty stupid to miss out on this now, truth be told.
The multiplayer beta kicks off next Monday via Halo 3: ODST. The full game releases in fall for Xbox 360.
A 60 sec live-action short will air after this week's Champions League semi-finals, beginning tomorrow night.
There's also something happening on Wednesday, but lord knows what that's going to be about.
