That answer and other fun facts about game customization.
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. http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/...
so the very begining of halo ce is the very end of reach?
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.
A DLC pack going through the fall of reach would be pretty sweet tbh.
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!!
So they can make some $$$$.
because mc IS halo. it's only fitting that bungie bids farewell to their baby.
Its like asking "why is darth vader in Star Wars 3?"
or why is ripely in aliens?
or why is John McClane in Die Hard?
Or vaginas in pronographic movies.
it would be cool if you could play as him for a level
my guess would be the final level leading upto the escape which takes them to halo as in the fall of reach book
Wow i'm liking the features in Halo reach. Weekly challanges to gain points to unlock things :D i like unlocking things. Reach sounds great!!!
because Master Chief is a soldier worth a fortune!!!
Master Chief is still Halo's gaming icon.... why wouldn't he be in there? And im sure if you read the books its better explained.
Bungie is going all out for this game, and I'm glad. This is going to be one hell of a swan song for them and the Halo franchise. It's sad though, Bungie won't be doing Halo anymore. I like to think that Halo: Reach would be the last Halo game and the series will go out on a high note, but then again I'm not an idiot and to think Microsoft would let Halo die with Bungie's departure is dumb. I'm not saying a 343 Studios Halo game would be bad, but, it certainly wouldn't be the same and it probably wouldn't have the heart behind it. 343 is gonna have a hard time convincing gamers to back their Halo game. All I can say is good luck.
But all HALO's people look like each other.
Fan service...which is going to piss off a lot of Reach fans. (of the book that is.)
Because master chief is halo.
