Halo: Reach beta has jetpacks

New video shows modes, gameplay.

Hold on to your hats, because jetpacks are coming to Halo: Reach. And you'll be able to try them out in the multiplayer beta scheduled for 3rd May 2010.

They were spotted by VG247 during a video promoting the multiplayer beta. According to the clip, the modes on offer will be "Assassinations", "Invasion", "Headhunter", "Active Roster", "Spartans vs. Elites" and "The Arena".

Only owners of Halo 3: ODST are invited to take part.

Eurogamer flew out to Microsoft's US X10 event recently to get a look at Halo: Reach and to talk to Bungie about its next, grittier instalment in the iconic Halo series.
