Loyal Halo 2 fans invited to Reach beta

Given other presents as consolation.

Microsoft is rewarding loyal Halo 2 fans with presents as both a thank you and a "sorry" for turning the game's multiplayer servers off.

The best gift is an invite to the Halo: Reach multiplayer beta, which begins 3rd May. Previously, only Halo 3: ODST owners had been asked to participate.

Halo 2 loyalists will also be given three free months of Xbox Live Gold membership and a lump sum of 400 Microsoft Points (£3.40/€4.65), according to a copy of an email sent by Microsoft posted on the Bungie forums.

The Halo 2 servers close on 15th April.

You'll receive an email from Microsoft about the rewards should you be eligible. We're not sure how one becomes "loyal".
