Because it's a prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved and what more obvious way to show that then to end the game leading up right to where Combat Evolved started then having the credits roll in and also having "easter eggs" or special appearances by him and his voice?

wait wasn't master chief on a special mission to capture a prophet at the time of the fall of reach i remember reading it in a book they wanted to capture a prophet so they can barter with the covenent so the chief was not on reach at the time of the fall

edit: i can see master chiefs mission being a dlc

He was at the "fall of Reach" actually. When planet got destroyed by Covenant he, Captain Keyes, Cortana and others escaped with the last human ship named "Pillar Of Autumn". Then they find themselves at Installation 04 which is the first Halo we ever saw. You can read his complete story from below.


NecrumSlavery4881d ago (Edited 4881d ago )

so the very begining of halo ce is the very end of reach?

Montrealien4881d ago (Edited 4881d ago )

Or maybe because Master chief was the main protagonist in the book fall of reach? We follow his conscription and training in the book.

edit: he may not be there all the time during the actual fall of reach, but he is a main part of the story of Reach, so it should not be suprising that he is somewhere in the game. And I agree Mrjunkins, DLC Master Chief mission would be interesting.

The Lazy One4881d ago

A DLC pack going through the fall of reach would be pretty sweet tbh.

TROLL EATER4881d ago (Edited 4881d ago )

it would be great for master chief to play in cameo in campaign. but in the article dere highlighting that MC voice is in firefight mode woo hooooo. the customisation look imense. so much content in thsi game!!

dizzleK4881d ago

because mc IS halo. it's only fitting that bungie bids farewell to their baby.

DaBadGuy4881d ago

How'd fallout not make the list. Atleast over cyberpunk, tales , and halo. Fallout been around since what 96 98 and has 5 6 games into it. It's full of lore when you play it. I'd even add star ocean to a point.

robtion337d ago

Agree Fallout should be on there.
