PSA | Halo: Reach Is Now Free For Xbox Gold Subscribers

As of right now you can download Halo: Reach for free with an Gold subscription on Xbox 360!

Halo: Reach was the last game in the Halo universe to be developed by original creator Bungie before they parted ways with Microsoft to focus on the recently released Destiny. This, their fifth installment in the franchise focused on the exploits of Noble Six, a squad of enhanced soldiers known as Spartans defending Earth’s sister planet Reach from an alien invasion.

For you die-hard achievement hunters the base game will offer a potential 1000g to earn with an additional 700g if you purchase the 3 map packs; Noble, Defiant and Anniversary, which are also currently discounted. It was the first game in the series to include an achievement for completing the game solo on it’s highest difficulty – Legendary.

Also until the end of the month those who have an active Xbox Gold Subscription and are currently using the Xbox One can download aerial railshooter Crimson Dragon and the excellent time manipulation pixel shooter Super Time Force. 

The download for Halo: Reach comes in at around 6.6gb and is available until the end of September, so what are you waiting for? Pick up a Battle-Rifle and join the fight!
