The biggest game of 2010, Halo®: Reach, is getting the ultimate collector’s treatment. Available for pre-order starting today at participating retailers worldwide are the Limited and Legendary editions of Halo: Reach, each packed with exclusive content you won’t want to miss. Additionally, today Bungie unveils a new action-packed video documentary offering a behind-the-scenes look at the development of Halo: Reach and a sneak peek at the new modes, features and content that you’ll be able to test when the multiplayer beta kicks off on May 3.
The Legendary Edition is the ultimate Halo collectible.
Halo: Reach will be available in standard, Limited, and Legendary editions when the game launches this fall. Both the Limited and Legendary editions are filled with content based on the fiction of Halo: Reach and the Halo universe, and are expected to sell out quickly.

The centerpiece is a collectible 10-inch tall, more than 10-pound statue of Noble Team, created by the acclaimed designers at McFarlane Toys.
