Halo: Reach Launch Events!

UPDATE (9/9): The Reach Launch Event in Seattle will begin at 6PM on Monday, Sept. 13th. We had originally posted the start time as 5PM, which was a mistake. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused and hope to see some of you there. The following link includes the new, up-to-date information related to the Seattle event…

If you are within driving distance to either New York or Seattle you have NO EXCUSE not to come.

That is all.

And if you are NOT within driving distance, you can still celebrate on LIVE.

The original post has been updated with new details on the Seattle Launch Event. Who’s going to be able to make it to the party?

Looks like I’ll be able to make it to the Seattle Event! I want Reach to feel more special to me than Halo launches have before, and this definitely going to make things special.

I would love to since Im right above Seattle on Vancouver island but my wife and I just had our new baby 1 week ago and she might frown upon me leaving for 2 days to go to a video gaming event…She just doesn’t understand how big something like this is LOL

Wife and newly born child is definitely more important. I’m sure Waypoint will fill you in on what you’ll miss :slight_smile:

I will be there in spirit.

Haha, like Lord Aldmar said, “I will be there in spirit.” - That about sums it up. You can find me at my local Gamestop for the midnight release!

Oh i know I was just kidding but if we didn’t have anew baby i would be there for sure. Hope fully they put up a live stream for the event.

We’ve posted image galleries from the Seattle Launch Event, as well as pics submitted by fans from across the country, over on our Facebook Fan Page. If you couldn’t make it out to any Launch Events or midnight sales check the galleries to get a taste of the action and if you did attend one or both, check 'em out to re-live the magic (then get your butt back online and play some more Reach)…
